The picture isn't as consistently funny as its reputation would suggest, but Marvin is terrific.

A drunk Lee Marvin on a horse to match makes this comedy western classic.

Though designed as a star vehicle for Jane Fonda, this first "official" spoof of the Western genre, catapulted Lee Marvin to major stardom, offering him two divergent roles (one played with a silver nose) for which he was rewarded with the 1965 Oscar.

Lee Marvin clearly steals the film in his double role as the good guy/bad guy hired gunman.

This is neither Fonda's finest role nor a very challenging one - it's a cleavage and one-liner affair - but it's fun and entertaining.

A wonderful Western spoof. Marvin great in dual role; drags at times, but mostly a hoot.
