Movie Info

Frank Sinatra headlines this ribald western parody. Ol' Blue Eyes plays the small-taters crook Dingus Macgee who robs a stage, and steals a strong box, only to find himself unable to open it. Meanwhile his bumbling victim hightails it for nearby Yerkey's Hole where he tells the mayor of the theft. The town leader and owner of a thriving local brothel (thanks to the presences of a fortress) appoints the victim the new deputy. Immediately the deputy rides out for revenge. Meanwhile Dingus dallies with a sex-starved Indian maiden who becomes obsessed with him. The deputy rides up during the tryst and arrests Dingus. Later the girl helps him escape from the pokey. But Dingus' problems are far from over. See, the maid wants more lovin', the deputy wants his box back and the local Indians want his scalp for sullying the maiden. Meanwhile the mayor has his own problems when he learns that the soldiers are planning to abandon the fort to go fight at Little Big Horn.

Audience Reviews for Dirty Dingus Magee

The hell with Dingus Magee! Dingus Magee is an outlaw in a small western town that kind of gets away with what he wants. He has also made peace with the Native Americans and has recently targeted robbing a train. He comes across a man on the road that he used to know and robs the man of his money. The man goes to the local town, talks to the mayor (who happens to own a brothel), and becomes sheriff. The new sheriff will stop at nothing to arrest Dingus Magee. "Little Big Horney." "Horn." Burt Kennedy, director of The War Wagon, The Train Robbers, Hannie Caulder, Support Your Local Sherriff, Comanche, Where the Hell's that Gold, and The Killer Inside Me, delivers Dirty Dingus Magee. The storyline for this picture is funny, entertaining, and well written. The characters interact together perfectly and there is some nice comedic sequences in this film. The acting is very good and the cast includes Frank Sinatra, George Kennedy, Anne Jackson, and Jack Elam. "I'm even going to kill your dog." I came across Dirty Dingus Magee on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and had to DVR a movie with this title starring Frank Sinatra! I found the film fun and well done. They used Sinatra well in a role he didn't have to take too seriously. This is definitely a fun western that is worth a viewing and has great entertainment value! "They have the whole army looking for me. Me. Dingus Magee." Grade: B
