Somewhere in the vicinity of the dusty Arizona burg of Integrity lies a fortune in stolen gold, buried at a desert waterhole by three confederates. Zeroing in on the hidden wealth is conniving gambler Lewton Cole (James Coburn), who's armed with a promising map, riding a stolen horse, and pursued by a less-than-law-abiding sheriff (Carroll O'Connor). And adding to the greed, corruption and lawlessness is a wonderfully misfit collection of additional treasure-seekers, including the original thieves and an Army cavalry troop- all intent on claiming the loot. Will they all converge on Waterhole #3 at the same moment? Margaret Blye, Bruce Dern, Claude Akins, Joan Blondell, James Whitmore and Timothy Carey also star in this boisterous Western comedy that rolls through they rowdy Old West like a prairie twister.
In this western comedy, three confederate soldiers steal a fortune in gold and decide to bury it in the desert. Produced by Blake Edwards.
A sprightly spoof of western movie conventions. A disgruntled army officer gets together with an outlaw and a somewhat disinclined hostage to carry out a daring gold robbery. But meanwhile, back in town, the sheriff has his mind on other things... like a gambler who's stolen a prize-winning horse -- and is just about to steal the heart of the lawman's daughter, too.
