Hal Needham was brought in to coordinate stunts on the film. His idea (without telling stars Williamson or Brown) to accomplish the stunt of the wagon flying across the canyon was to attach rockets to the bottom of it. When Brown and Williamson found out about this, they had Needham promptly removed from the production. See more »
Rugged western with a comedy side order. Several groups of toughs go after an innocent man who is holding a large amount of cash. Of course each group is intent on out gunning, linking forces, or back stabbing the other guy for a shot at the bucks. This led to loads of spaghetti style gunplay and many bodies biting the dust. Had to wonder how many black half breeds there were in the old west who could do spinning heel kicks and a flying double front kick. Only fair.
