Arriving in town on dust-covered feet, Lyda is introduced by phony evangelist Pious Blue as "my cousin" and she promptly opens her dress and displays her voluptuous charms. Written by alfiehitchie

No, it's a funny comedy!
26 October 2000 | by artzauSee all my reviews

This is a funny piece of work by Exorcist author Blatty. Hey, it has every character actor on the list in crazy situations which play off our ever-loving Western Movie stereotypes. It was done before the great ones like Blazing Saddles, Rustler's Rhapsody and The Villain. See it and judge for yourself. The cast is great and the situations amusing.
