Preston Sturges plays his script [based on a story by Earl Felton] with frantic slapstick, stressing raw, bawdy comedy rather than genuine humor, to get the laughs.

To paraphrase the theme song, it looks pretty well shot in the end.

Not so much a lament for the end of the West but for the end of the 1940s

Fast-moving and witty spoof of Western conventions from one of Hollywood's finest writer/directors of comedy.

Shoots itself in the arse once too many times for its prolonged spoof to work smoothly.

This musical western burlesque looks slightly better today, but its still more energetic than funny.

Even a fair-to-middling Preston Sturges production is better than most comedies by other writer/directors.
