In 1909 Arizona, retired lawman Sam Burgade's life is thrown upside-down when his old enemy Zach Provo and six other convicts escape a chain-gang in the Yuma Territorial Prison and come gunning for Burgade.

A pair of women decide to prank their roommate's nerdy blind date after she stands him up, but end up developing a friendship with him after their practical joke sends them on an all-night odyssey through the 1980s club scene.
While the audience watches a black and white horse opera, a narrator's voice wonders what such a movie would be like today. Rex O'Herlihan, The Singing Cowboy, finds himself in color and enters a cliché-ridden town, in which the evil cattle baron (Andy Griffith) and the new Italian cowboys (who always wear raincoats no matter how hot it gets) join forces to get him and the sheep ranchers to leave the valley.Written by

The edited-for-television release of Rustler's Rhapsody contains a scene deleted from the theatrical release. It features an exchange between Rex (with Peter in tow) and Colonel Ticonderoga in the middle of the forest just before the big shoot-out. The Colonel explains that he'll have 20 men gunning for Rex, to which Rex replies, "One hand, 20 hands, it's all the same to me." (Note that in the shoot-out, Rex claims there are too many men for him to handle because "usually 40% chicken out." 20 men minus 40% would have left 12 men, which would've been exactly enough for Rex's two fully-loaded sixguns to take out.)

It's too bad more people haven't had the pleasure of watching this hilarious send-up of the Western genre. For those of you who thought that Blazing Saddles said everything there was to say on this subject, give Rustler's Rhapsody a whirl. I promise you, it'll be worth your time.
