WonderfulBy a customer from Cardiff,Wales , 25 Sep 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a wonderful movie. Funny from start to finish.James Garner plays the cool sheriff and Jack Elam is just great as his deputy.It's not too violent and what there is is quite tame,just a wonderful comedy western.Well worth the rent.

The West Was Never Like ThisBy a customer from Doncaster , 25 Oct 2010Gold is found near a Western village causing a rumpus between various local characters and an influx of newcomers and causing problems for the temporary town sheriff, James Garner, who declares that he is only stopping on his way to Australia. With masters of screen comedy in the cast such as Jack Elam, Walter Brennan, Henry Morgan, Henry Jones, Bruce Dern and comedy love interest from Joan Hackett and directed by Burt Kennedy this is a film which calls on all the Western cliches and exploits them to the limit. A film full of giggles and belly laughs.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008This is a gem - and yet so few people know about it!
Wonderful script, excellent ensemble comedy acting and some wonderful sight gags, like the failed jail break. James Garner and Jack Elam make a wonderful team and the film had my whole family laughing out loud.
I can't resist one spolier...
The Sheriff takes the newly arested Joe Danby (Bruce Dern) into his half finished jail.
Sherrif: "That cell over there is yours."
Danby: (seeing that there is no wall and no bars) "You gotta be kidding me!"
Sheriff: "Now that's just what I said - but we'll just have to make do"
If you haven't seen this then you are in for a treat!
Great FunBy a customer from Sheffield, England , 31 Jan 2008Wonderful laid back comedy. Well acted by all.
Jeff ParkesBy Jeffery Parkes from Argyll, Scotland , 14 Jan 2007Sheer delight. A number of character actors who have made their living in serious parts in heavy westerns - including the sublime Jack Elam - here guy it all up and parody themselves and the whole genre. At the head of it all is smooth James Garner who becomes a sheriff by default (in the non-computer meaning of the word). The pace is fast and furious and the cast enjoy every frantic moment. So do we.
SheriffBy a customer from Wales , 08 Jan 2006Excellent Film. James Garner in one of his best roles. Lots of laughs and a good story.
