Directorty Dingus Magee emerges as a good period western comedy, covering the spectrum from satire through double entendre to low slapstick, starring Frank Sinatra and George Kennedy as double-crossing buddies.

Burt Kennedy produced and directed a script [from the novel The Ballad of Dingus Magee by David Markson] which is loaded with effective vignette, and a strong supporting cast.

Sinatra plays an ambiable roustabout, always eager but never quite able to satisfy the unending passions of Indian maiden Michele Carey. When old pal Kennedy shows up en route to California, Sinatra robs him, thus setting up the basic running, plot line of multiple compound double cross. The gag sub-plots move along at a good pace.
