Support Your Local Gunfighter

Burt Kennedy's follow-up to Support Your Local Sheriff has James Garner escaping from the clutches of Marie Windsor, only to become mistaken by competing mine-owners Harry Morgan and John Dehner for a hired gun, played in finale cameo by Chuck Connors. Jack Elam again is excellent in role of a befuddled but willing accomplice to Garner's maneuvers. Joan Blondell is good as a bordello queen, and Henry Jones scores as a nosy gossip.

Burt Kennedy’s follow-up to Support Your Local Sheriff has James Garner escaping from the clutches of Marie Windsor, only to become mistaken by competing mine-owners Harry Morgan and John Dehner for a hired gun, played in finale cameo by Chuck Connors. Jack Elam again is excellent in role of a befuddled but willing accomplice to Garner’s maneuvers. Joan Blondell is good as a bordello queen, and Henry Jones scores as a nosy gossip.

Suzanne Pleshette starts out a bit too strong as a tom-boy, but eventually settles in. There are a few hefty laughs, many chuckles, a few smiles, and some cold gags.

A.D. Flowers’ special explosive effects punch up some of the action sequences, and Elam’s curtain-narration speech, where he describes how he went on to become a big star of Italian westerns, brings the 92 minutes to a good finish.
