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!"

James Garner's line, "Patience, there are some things a man just can't ride around... but then again, maybe he can," is a parody by screenwriter Burt Kennedy of a line he wrote, more seriously, for two Burt Boetticher westerns starring Randolph Scott, The Tall T (1957) and Ride Lonesome (1959): "There are some things a man can't ride around."
