This is a delightfully different Clint Eastwood movie, directed by the Squint himself. As a former New Jersey shoe salesman now running a rundown contemporary Wild West show, Eastwood warmly mocks his wrapped-in-the-flag persona. Overlooked by the public when it was initially released in 1980, the comedy has become a cult favorite. Eastwood's Sudden Impact co-star, Sondra Locke, is also on hand as a dippy heiress who receives a crash course in life and love from Billy himself.
