The Rare Breed Review


OK
One of the strangest westerns I've ever seen, this story of a rare cow and its treacherous delivery eventually gives way to a character study featuring James Stewart, Maureen O'Hara, and the unforgettable Brian Keith, playing an outrageous Scotsman. It never really goes anywhere -- and it couldn't: Most of the film was shot on a sound stage instead of on location.

Support Your Local Sheriff! Review


Very Good
"It's bad enough to have to kill a man, without having to listen to a lot of stupid talk from him first." James Garner adapts his Maverick persona to this western-comedy, a clever and deftly-dialogued story about a blase gunfighter who takes the job of sheriff in a rough-and-tumble town simply for the money. Good thing he's an excellent shot and even better with a pistol. It's a clever spoof with some dry moments, but overall it's one of the old west's better comedies.

Support Your Local Gunfighter Review


Good
In my world view, westerns should never be rated G, but Support Your Local Gunfighter is as good as any kid-friendly shoot-'em-up could possibly be. This sequel to Support Your Local Sheriff! sets up the congenial James Garner as a man mistaken for a vicious gunslinger (who oddly enough was an expert gunslinger in the original film) -- well, need I say that wacky hijinks ensue? It's reasonably funny as farce, forgettable as everything else.
