Trivia

This 1978 western-comedy film's main movie poster ran with a tagline "A blazing saga of Hot Lead and Cold Feet" which was designed to connect via the word "blazing" with Mel Brooks' earlier 1974 box-office western-comedy movie Blazing Saddles (1974) which had been made and released about four years earlier.

one memorable Walt Disney western,,,,
7 August 2006 | by (seattle washington USA) – See all my reviews

I seen this movie at the movie theater when I was a little girl....it is one of my first memories of being at the movies.....and I loved it....very funny with little life lessons along the way..after all these years I never forgot hot lead and cold feet...I even remember the theme song..."hot lead and cold feet..may the best man win...hot lead and cold feet..may the best man win.." dadadada....What stands out in this movie is the performance of the lead character playing both parts of the gunfighter twin and the mild mannered twin...I think that kids today need to rediscover this movie....it should be remembered as a family classic...I cannot wait to purchase this on DVD and you should to especially if you have young children....
