[Lee Marvin] achieves a second dimension. His performance, like everybody's, is broad as the barn door he misses in target practice, but he overplays it so skillfully as to raise it into a grotesque kind of humanity.

A lovably scruffy western send-up with a heart as big as the desert and an infectious sense of whimsy.

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

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.

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.
