Storyline

James Garner plays a ladies’ man who ends up on the run from a conquest. He has an embarrassing problem that requires a doctor, but that is not immediately disclosed. He and a town barsweep form a plot to impersonate a well-known gunfighter so that Garner can pay off his debts and skip town before the soon to come arrival of the real gunfighter. The cast is almost identical to Support Your Local Sheriff! (1969) and the humor is similar. Typical: “You hit him from behind!” Garner: “Just as hard as I could!”

Fast and furious….

James Garner was always good in westerns (just watch the original “Maverick” series if you don’t believe me), but he was never more in his element than he is in “Support your Local Gunfighter”.

This has got to be one of the funniest westerns (besides “Blazing Saddles”) I’ve ever seen. In fact, everyone here has a good line (even Conners as Swifty Morgan gets some good ones. Wow!).

But you have to watch it for Garner. Just look at him making the best of his unfounded notoriety as a gunfighter. He’s a master at mistaken identity. He made it a daily practice in the “Maverick” series. And with Elam at his side, everything falls into place nicely.

There are too many good things in this film to even hint at, so I’ll just insist that you support James Garner and draw on this “Gunfighter”.

Ten stars. Catch Elam’s final monologue; that should tie up any loose ends for you.

Rib-tickling.

Garner’s wonderful in this spoof, which is a follow-up to SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF. Still, this film has more than enough merits of its own. The humor after all these years still holds up, & it’s one that needs to be viewed again & again. It’s as fresh now as it was then.
