Back when the Dollar was still "strong"
16 January 2012 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I had the "pleasure" of watching this at a local cinema 45 years after it got made/released. I have to add that it was the German dubbed version I watched. Which added to the "party"/fun factor, because of the ridiculous dialog (not that I actually imagine that the real dialog is any better mind you).

While there are clichés abound and quite a few things could be seen as sexual innuendo (between men mind you), this seems to have been the (german) lingo back then. But again this was all adding to the fun factor. But not to the factor that would make this a really good movie of course. If you have a boys night in (no pun intended) and just want to lay back and watch some crazy Western movie, you could do worse!
