Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This overlong, over-indulgent comedy western is sometimes quite amusing, despite the rather tiresome antics of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin (whose production company made the film). They play the rival conmen who settle their differences to take on baddies Victor Buono and Charles Bronson. At least Sinatra had the good sense to hire a decent director (The Dirty Dozen's Robert Aldrich), and no film that succeeds in roping in the excesses of Martin and Bronson can be totally unwatchable. Other members of the unlikely cast include Anita Ekberg, Ursula Andress and the Three Stooges.
