Awesome western comedy!
15 August 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

One of the all-time great movies and most people have never seen it! Hilarious characters, superb writing. Larry Hagman, Lou Gossett (when he had hair!), Harry Morgan, and others are all great, but veteran western character actor Jack Elam steals the show as the dim-witted "Boss". Make sure you tape this if it ever comes back on TV again. I need this on DVD!!!!
