Plot

Bronco Billy McCoy is the proud owner of a small traveling Wild West show. But the business isn’t doing too well: for the past six months he hasn’t paid his employees. At a gas station he picks up Antoinette, a stuck-up blonde from a rich family, who was left behind without a penny by her husband on their wedding night. Billy likes her looks and hires her as his assistant. She seems to bring them bad luck and the business gets even worse. In these hard times she loses her reluctance and starts to like her new way of life… and Bronco Billy.

Critical Reception

“Here’s a picture that works beautifully on several levels, including the philosophical (I kid you not). Approach it as a lighthearted caper, and you will be entertained. If you enjoy whimsy with a trace of fantasy, it will not disappoint you.” – Jaykay -IMDB

” It deserves more attention than it’s gotten and is deeper than it’s been given credit for. Eastwood himself has said that if he ever had anything to say as a director it’s in this film. ” – niall801 – IMDB
