Title: Support Your Local Sheriff (1968)
Post by: titoli on July 06, 2009, 08:53:07 AM
Brilliant comedy, the best I've seen except Destry Rides Again and The Sheepman (but I'll have to rewatch the last). It has very brilliant scenes, very good dialogues but, compared to the other two (and the two Trinities) it lacks a fluent rhythm and it has some dead spot not well integrated in the story. Still it's worth a solid 7\10, maybe even more because of Garner's performance. Elam has a more relevant role than his usual but I prefer him playing the baddy anyway. The OST shows that Morricone has been registered but not well assimilated.

I first saw this in school in the third or fourth grade. Great comedy and it still holds up well, IMO. As CJ said, I think it is far better than its sequel. I don't even remember the sequel being all that funny.

Yea the best thing about Gunfighter is the very end and Elam's remarks about Spaghetti Westerns.

I don't even remember that at all. I only saw it once. Was it a reference to OUATITW, or something?

Elam is giving a verbal epilogue saying "yada, yada, yada, that Garner goes off to Australia and me I go on to become a big star in Spaghetti Westerns"
