Appealing gentle Western comedy.

Robards' warm performance makes the film into a casual delight.

The calm between Peckinpah's tempests
August 30, 2006
Not a hit at the box office, it remains one of his finest efforts, funny, touching and never mawkishly sentimental.
February 8, 2006
A funky and appealing Western parable directed by Sam Peckinpah.

Peckinpah shows atypical humor and sense of music too in this original and lyrical comedy-Western-musical, with Jason Robards in top form as one of the director's most sympathetic character.

A fine movie, a wonderfully comic tale we didn't quite expect from a director who seems more at home with violence than with humor.

Peckinpah's gentlest, boldest, and perhaps most likable film to date.

Jason Robards shines in one of his most touching and humorous performances, and David Warner is memorable as a sinning preacher man.

Sam Peckinpah followed The Wild Bunch with this intimate, eccentric, appealing 1970 comedy, which treats many of the same themes in a soft, regretful mode.
