Without looking – Who played the lead male character in the comedy western movies – The Shakiest Gun in the West?
If you answered – Don Knotts, then you are correct!
In 1870, Dentist, Jesse W. Heywood travels west to be a “frontier dentist.” On his way, the stagecoach gets robbed by two masked bandits. One of the bandits, Penelope “Bad Penny” Cushings (Barbara Rhoades) gets caught by the Posse. She is given a choice, serve time in prison or get a pardon by helping to track down smugglers who are providing guns to the Indians.
Penelope wants the pardon, however, she runs into a problem when the man who is to pose as her husband on the wagon train gets shot. She convinces bumbling Heywood to marry her and they continue on their journey.
On the way, Heywood becomes a legendary gunman when he guns down “Arnold the Kid” and though he doesn’t know how he did it because he shakes when he handles a gun. No one can shake like Don Knotts! No one!
Anyway, unbeknownst to Heywood, he had a little help in gunning down “Arnold the Kid.”
Don Knotts does not disappoint in this movie but he does get disappointed.
If you enjoy comedy and Don Knotts, then you will definitely enjoy The Shakiest Gun in the West!
“Anyone who believes in magic is crazy.” ~ Crazy Cora, Quigley Down Under
Laura San Giacomo plays an outstanding role in the western movie Quigley Down Under as Crazy Cora, a misplaced American woman with post traumatic stress disorder. Back in the western days no one called it post traumatic stress disorder, they called it crazy, hence Crazy Cora.
Cora’s tragic past drove her crazy–gave her post traumatic stress. She dealt with the tragedy the best she could. Everything comes back to haunt her during the fight scenes between the Australian Aborigines and Marston’s, the late (Alan Rickman), men. Then she is left alone with an aboriginal baby who is hungry and cries a lot. The scene is very intense when the dingoes come, however, we see the inner strength of Cora.
Movie critic, Roger Ebert wrote, “She isn’t just another pretty face and a great set of eyebrows. She has an authority, a depth of presence, that is attractive, and her voice is deep and musical.”
