If you are looking for a movie that will provide some lighthearted entertainment, this is it. James Gardner plays a sheriff who will remind you of Bret Maverick (an earlier Gardner TV character) By pure chance, Gardner becomes the sheriff of a wide-open gold-rush town. Bruce Dern is a dim- witted villian, with Walter Brenan as his father. Jack Elam (a former stable-cleaner town- character) plays the reluctant deputy. The plot is pretty standard: a sheriff is hired to clean up the town, encounters and overcomes difficulties along the way, marries the richest and weirdest girl in town, and lives happily ever after. However, the characters are varied and entertaining; and the situations will keep you laughing. This is movie you can enjoy with your children without any worries about inappropriate language, violence, or sex.

This is a Very funny movie. James Garner is the coolest cowboy to ever ride into down. Walter Brennan does a comedic take on his Old man Clanton character from "My Darling Clementine" (here called the Danby clan) that should not be missed. Jack Elam plays against his "bad guy" typecasting and does a very funny deputy to Garner's Sheriff. Joan Hackett (who is still missed very much) does a wonderful job as the love interest. And the rest of the cast is filled with great character actors from the 1960's, including M.A.S.H.'s own Harry Morgan (obviously Years before that role). And don't forget the girls at Madam Orr's House. If you have not seen this one, do yourself a favor and pick it up. This is much better than its sequal "Support your local Gunfighter" (which is an ok movie) so don't confuse the two.
