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.

Did You Know?
Despite the notorious financial and critical failure of Heaven's Gate
(1980), the Hollywood films industry within about five years of that movie bizarrely revived the oater movie genre during the mid-80s producing a mini-cycle of Western movies of which this western spoof was one. In 1985, the dream factory churned out such Western oaters as Silverado
(1985), Rustlers' Rhapsody
(1985), Pale Rider
(1985) and Lust in the Dust
(1985). See more

You can also see the person behind him pulling it off. See more
