James Garner plays a ladies' man who ends up on the run from a conquest. He has an embarrassing problem that requires a doctor, but that is not immediately disclosed. He and a town barsweep form a plot to impersonate a well-known gunfighter so that Garner can pay off his debts and skip town before the soon to come arrival of the real gunfighter. The cast is almost identical to Support Your Local Sheriff! (1969) and the humor is similar. Typical: "You hit him from behind!" Garner: "Just as hard as I could!"

At the end of the movie Jug (Jack Elam
) presents an epilogue about the fate of the main characters from the caboose of the moving train. As for himself, he mentions that he goes on to star in spaghetti westerns. Actually, he is referring to his iconic, but all too brief, role at the beginning of Once Upon a Time in the West
(1968), as the leader of a small group tasked with killing Charles Bronson
's character (unsuccessfully, of course). Viewers don't even hear his real voice, as he was dubbed for the English-language version of the movie. The only other spaghetti western he appeared in (credited) was Sartana Does Not Forgive
(1968). See more
