Movie Info

During the 1880s, Englishman Jonathan Tibbs (Kenneth More) journeys to the American West to make a fortune selling firearms. However, when he stops a Native American ambush using his gentlemanly manners, he becomes a hero to the people of the town of Fractured Jaw and is made sheriff. In over his head, Jonathan attempts to bring justice to the anarchic town by befriending a local Sioux tribe. He also tries to win over Kate (Jayne Mansfield), a feisty bartender.

  • Apr 01, 2010
    Good comedy that got better as it went along but wouldve been way better without all the singing

    One of Jayne's better efforts, cute comedy nothing earth shaking but a pleasant way to wile away a few hours.

    Kenneth More does his affable eccentric Englishman abroad as a gunsmith who inevitably becomes mistaken for a gunslinger during a range war. If film comedy were to be believed, there wasn't a real sheriff to be found in the whole of the west; Wyatt Earp probably really did pet shampoos. It's purely by the numbers stuff, as More woos Jayne Mansfield while inadvertently foiling the stereotypical cowpokes in what is essentially a Carry On film without the innuendo (Sid James even puts in an appearance as the town drunk). The only real surprise is that Mansfield became such a star; her uninspired musical interludes were dubbed by Connie Francis and she sure as hell can't act. Bob Hope and Jane Russell did this routine a whole lot better 10 years earlier in The Paleface films.
