  • Some of the jokes may be elderly, but some humour keeps well, like Christmas pudding : my favourite Western chestnut, for instance, the hotel notice saying : 'No spurs in bed.'

    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.
