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!"

Did You Know?
It is a bit of a technicality the train seen at the beginning and end of the movie was not the Durango and Silverton it was still the Denver and Rio Grande Western. In 1971 the DRGW was still owner and operator of the line and this trackage was still part of a class 1 railroad and not a tourist / heritage railroad. Even though DRGW was looking at the time for a buyer or just the permission to the interstate transportation board for abandonment of the rail grade. They would find neither until the mid 1980s.
