Support Your Local Sheriff

Support Your Local Sheriff

Armed with a wry sense of humor and a straight-shooting sidearm, James Garner (Maverick, My Fellow Americans) fights for peace, justice and fun in this outrageous, irreverent and "very funny" (Los Angeles Times) farce co-starring Joan Hackett, Walter Brennan, Harry Morgan and Jack Elam. Support Your Local Sheriff is "sheer entertainment from start to finish" (Boxoffice)! On his way to Australia, frontier opportunist Jason McCullough (Garner) stumbles into a small gold-rush town and decides to earn a little extra pocket money by accepting a temporary assignment as its sheriff. Happily applying himself to his new position, McCullough manages to turn the town derelict (Elam) into his deputy, outsmart the dreaded Danby clan (led by Brennan in a hilarious comic performance), and fend off the lusty advances of the mayor's daughter (Hackett) all without breaking a sweat or dirtying his shiny black boots!

Support Your Local Sheriff [1969] / Support Your Local Gunfighter [1971] Twilight Time [Blu ray]

A Western parody, Support Your Local Sheriff (1969), stars the delightful James Garner as a sheriff who pops up out of nowhere to shape up a rowdy frontier town (villainized by Bruce Dern, of course), aided and abetted by a scruffy local (Jack Elam). The film's 1971 follow-up, Support Your Local Gunfighter, reunites Garner and Elam for further adventures in absurdity. Distaff humor is provided by Joan Hackett (Sheriff) and Suzanne Pleshette (Gunfighter), and veteran character actors are here in abundance, including Harry Morgan, Walter Brennan, John Dehner, Marie Windsor, and Joan Blondell.

Support Your Local Gunfighter

The wild west just got wilder and a whole lot wackier! James Garner is back in the saddle again in Support Your Local Gunfighter, a powder keg of laughs in which the most dangerous gunslinger in the west isn't the fastest but the funniest! Gigolo con man Latigo Smith (Garner) needs to get something off his chestthe tattooed name of his most recent ex-fiancÃ(c)e. But while he's waiting for the local doctor to sober up and perform the operation, Smith overhears that local mining baron Taylor Barton (Harry Morgan) is looking to shut down his mining competition by hiring the notorious gunman, Swifty Morgan. Seizing the opportunity for an easy con, Smith passes off a reprobate cowhand (Jack Elam) as the dreaded Swifty and pockets the cash. Bankroll in hand, he plans to head for the hills until he falls for Barton's pistol-packin' daughter, Patience (Suzanne Pleshette). But when the real Swifty shows up looking for blood, Smith comes up with an outrageous scheme to save his hide, stop the mining feud and win over Patience and it might just work if it doesn't blow up the entire town!
