A buoyant western satire....Lee Marvin is great in two roles...

Nov 20, 2003
Rating: 3/5 -- Mainly remembered for Marvin's Oscar-winning comedic performance

Rating: B -- Though designed as a star vehicle for Jane Fonda, this first "official" spoof of the Western genre, catapulted Lee Marvin to major stardom, offering him two divergent roles (one played with a silver nose) for which he was rewarded with the 1965 Oscar. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- A drunk Lee Marvin on a horse to match makes this comedy western classic.

Product Description:

Fonda is agreeably peppery as a teacher in the Old West who wreaks vengeance on the men who murdered her father. Marvin enlists as a drunken old gunfighter trying to retain his old glory and also portrays his twin brother, a rustler with a silver nose. A 60s-style genre spoof with enough action to keep it real. Marvin won an Academy Award for his two performances.

Plot Synopsis:

In this spoof of the Western and the Old West, a young schoolteacher, Cat, and her gang wreak vengeance on the men who murdered her father. They hire a drunken old gunfighter, trying to retain his old glory, to help them with the cause. Together they set out to get even with an English lord who's responsible for the death of Cat's parents.
