Incredibly funny and unique.

This film is set in the old west. It begins with Mr. Kelly (George Montgomery) talking with the bartender about making an order. This is because Kelly is a salesman for a liquor distributor back east. As he's talking, a telegram arrives for Kelly but a nosy waitress (Gloria Talbot) intercepts it and reads it. It talks about how all the girls miss him--and she assumes it means that he's a real he-stud. Instead, the letter is actually from Kelly's wife--and it's talking about how his eight daughters miss him! Well, after the waitress shows the note to another waitress (Karen Steele), BOTH are infatuated with the handsome stranger. And, through the course of the show, both keeps paying the poor guy LOTS of attention...too much attention. He can't even enjoy a good meal because they won't leave him alone. But what's worse is that the ladies BOTH have jealous boyfriends. The first (Alan Hale Jr.) wants to break Kelly's neck. Fortunately, Kelly is an excellent fighter. But the second is handy with a gun and so Kelly has to use his brain to extricate himself from this mess he didn't even help to create!

The show is very, very funny. It makes fun of westerns and is an interesting case of reverse sexual harassment. You just have to feel sorry for the guy! Well worth seeing and lots of laughs.
