The Duchess and the Directortwater Fox is a generally pleasant and amiable period western comedy starring George Segal as a fumbling gambler and Goldie Hawn as a singing-dancing frontier chick.

Pair get involved with Roy Jenson’s robber gang, Thayer David’s group of Mormons, a Jewish wedding, some good gags here, some forced humor there.

Barry Sandler’s story has been scripted into sketches which tend to a predictably upbeat curtain. The Colorado scenery vies with the interactions of Hawn and Segal; the other players are more or less backdrop.

The stars work well together; Segal’s comedy abilities seem in fullest flower when Mel Frank is directing, while Hawn’s talents are showcased quite nicely.
