    Gem in the Desert

    This lovely period piece has not only a heart of old but a fabulous tongue in cheek quality that most B Western cowpokes miss. Git a little pride in your stride, pards. Bridges is nothing less than floppy hair in the face gold, having it both ways. He's a true fan, and he's spoofing the chaps off the genre. Toss in Arkin's grizzly cheapskate of a director, and the always adorable Danner, and, boys, it's a ride down a fine dusty trail!
