The time-frame of this film can be verified by identifying evidence of certain events depicted in the film. Two movies are showing at the cinema during the picture-house sequence. They are a double bill of Horse Feathers (1932) and Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933). The former premiered on 10 August 1932 whilst the latter debuted on 27 May 1933. Prohibition was repealed on 5th December 1933. As such, the film is set during 1933. See more »

I didn't find this movie all that bad. It is merely mediocre. Unfortunately there is nothing in this movie that we haven't seen dozens of times before. Burt is sophomoric and Clint is stereotypical Clint. Good TV movie but not really worth renting unless you have seen everything else.
