Kris Kristofferson is at his driest in this weird take on the classic loner-in-a-frontier-town tale. Take Shane and add a liberal dose of Blazing Saddles, although the humor in this film is unique for the genre. Of particular note is the running "fatcakes" gag and the bad guys' frequent lame attempts to flame Kristofferson: "It's kind of a bad taste smell." And a visit to Shorty's house is always good for a laugh.
