It is no wonder that this film was awarded a nomination for best costume design, the detail of the 1920's is absolutely superb. In addition the music by Henry Mancini is great. Altogether, this film is a really superb way to spend a relaxing hour and a half.
The cast is excellent with Bruce Willis and James Garner giving sound performances and the interplay between the two characters is brilliantly done.The acting cudos must go to Graeme McDowell as the vicious killer,an outstanding performance. The story is tongue in cheek, about the meeting up of lengendary Tom Mix and Wyatt Earp, who in partnership solve a vicious killing and told with great style and superbly directed by Blake Edwards. This must rate as one of his finest films.The female cast in this film is also of the highest standard.
Yes,if you enjoy a film with comedy, drama,superb music, great acting, good story and wonderful period costumes and scenery without having to use the little grey cells, then you should not miss it. I saw it on television and one reviewer has commented that the DVD has been poorly edited but at the price it's worth it.
