Movie Info

Ne'er-do-well Charlie "Dirtwater Fox" Malloy (George Segal) helps outlaws steal a cool $40,000, then runs off with all the money. However, he doesn't count on Duchess (Goldie Hawn), a burlesque dancer and prostitute who manages to trick him out of the cash. As the gang Malloy had double-crossed comes looking to retrieve their loot, the pair team up and engage in some wacky shenanigans, including having her pretend to be a real-life duchess, while gradually falling for each other.

    You know what was wrong with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid? Too many men. Yep. This comedy, engineered on the heels of that one, reimagines those turn of the century Western escapades with that formula in mind. And so Segal plays a con artist on the lam from some bandits he snookered, and Hawn plays a woman of ill repute who joins him. The idea is not terribly bad but the execution feels forced though the stars bend over backward to inject the thing with charm. Neither will ever mention this effort in conversation of their own accord although it becomes an interesting artifact of the times it was made.

    It's definitely a bit dated but I thought this movie was funny from start to finish. The movie opens with a dance hall scene laden with sexual innuendo which would have been a bit naughty and bawdy for back in the days. Goldie Hawn is simply delightful as a saloon entertainer/hooker who later pretends to be a Duchess in order to become a wealthy Mormon's seventh wife. Hey! It's better to work one night of the week rather than every night. Segal is an unlucky womanizing cardsharp who keeps getting caught cheating but later absconds with $40,000 in stolen loot from a band of outlaws. Hawn and Segal work well together fighting and sparring all through the movie. Another hilarious character is BlackJack, George Segal's loyal well trained horse, his antics was too amusing for words. Most memorable scenes for me includes the coded conversation supposedly in French in the stagecoach between the two adversaries and Goldie Hawn singing the very suggestive "Don't touch my plums" for the Mormon family that had him drooling lol. (I don't know if it is just me but if u stare long enough at the poster, Goldie's elbow looks like a bare breast!!!) So if you like romantic western comedies, this one is not to be missed. The humor, though suggestive, is actually pretty smart.
