Storyline

While the audience watches a black and white horse opera, a narrator's voice wonders what such a movie would be like today. Rex O'Herlihan, The Singing Cowboy, finds himself in color and enters a cliché-ridden town, in which the evil cattle baron (Andy Griffith) and the new Italian cowboys (who always wear raincoats no matter how hot it gets) join forces to get him and the sheep ranchers to leave the valley. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Should get more play. Quite funny.
30 January 2001 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

It's too bad more people haven't had the pleasure of watching this hilarious send-up of the Western genre. For those of you who thought that Blazing Saddles said everything there was to say on this subject, give Rustler's Rhapsody a whirl. I promise you, it'll be worth your time.

8 out of 10.
