This movie's opening scene shows the town's folk performing a burial service. During the prayer, Trudy (Joan Hackett) spots gold in the grave and jumps in to stake her claim as well as the other town's folk. This same scenario happened in Paint Your Wagon (1969) during the opening scene. Partner's (Clint Eastwood) brother was killed while moving to California during the gold rush. During his burial service, gold was spotted in the grave by the other miners present. Before Ben Rumson (Lee Marvin) can finish the prayer, his body was pulled out of the grave and everyone jumps in the grave to try and stake the claim. See more »

Now, I will even watch James Garner in a bad movie. That whole worldly wise, yet winsome thing he has going makes you think of that best bud you had in junior high.
But this is actually a very good, drown yourself in a bag of popcorn, and laugh your cares away film.
Is it a western parody or humorous homage to some of the great character actors in American western? It certainly doesn't have a mean bone in its body and doesn't rely on shock humor to get you chuckling. This film respects its predecessors and has good clean fun with them.
It's a DVD you can easily find for under $10, and well worth it.
