At the end of the movie Bruno Kirby says something like 'next year we are going to follow Admiral Byrd's route to the North Pole.' Actually, it was Admiral Peary who was credited with being the first person to go to the North Pole. Admiral Byrd was more famous for his solo, over-winter stay in Antarctica at his base called Little America. See more »

Billy Crystal puts on a fine show in the comic western 'City Slickers'. This is a consistently funny and thouroughly enjoyable comedy which stars Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern and Bruno Kirby as the 3 middle aged friends who take a vacation in the west and get into all sorts of carry on with cattle and Curly the cowboy. Crystal is a fine comedian and he certainly shows it here. Daniel Stern and Bruno Kirby do well too and there is an excellent show from Jack Palance as Curly. There was also a sequel made called 'City Slickers 2 The Legend of Curly's Gold'. This was just as good and I also recommend it if you like this. But see 'City Slickers' a classic comedy western.
