Fine comedy, though MW looks old, flabby and ugly. But her delivery is always stunning. W.C. Fields steals some mannerisms form Oliver Hardy but hes funny too. 8\10

This is a terrific comedy set in the Old West. I don't know if it was the original to set the tone for western comedies and musicals that followed but I can't think of any movie that had a sharp-shooting gal before this one.

You can't go wrong with Mae West and W.C. Fields with a bit of Margaret Hamilton thrown in too for good measure. It's a pity that Mae West declined to work with Fields ever again after this as they are great together.
