This is simply a charming , funny movie . Robert Taylor is exceptionally good – as is the supporting cast in general. Well-made Western comedies seem few and far between .
The movie was not well publicized upon its release as I recall , nor was it rated as top flight. It’s hardly ever seen on television. The film can easily be described as wholesome – a rarity more today than back in the 50’s . Its tone and style reflect the mood of the times.
By all means, catch it if you can . By ttlankf3 (Maryland) on the IMDB
