This follow-up film (though not a sequel) to SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF finds Garner playing a con artist running off from his madame bride-to-be, Windsor. He ends up in the small western town of Purgatory, where the citizens mistake him for a famous gunslinger. Garner decides to let them

think what they want and proceeds to take Purgatory for everything he can. Elam once more is his sidekick, and Pleshette is the love interest who wants to start a Ladies Finishing School in New York State. Garner's tongue-in-cheek comic style works nicely, with some fun support in Elam's great

clowning. Though not quite the film its predecessor was, this is still an enormous amount of fun, with good direction that kids around affectionately with western cliches.
