Support Your Local Sheriff

On his way to Australia, frontier opportunist Jason McCullough (James Garner) stumbles into a small gold-rush town and decides to earn a little extra pocket money by accepting a temporary assignment as their sheriff. Happily applying himself to his new position, McCullough manages to turn the town derelict (Jack Elam) into his deputy, outsmart the dreaded Danby clan (led by Walter Brennan in a hilarious comic performance), and fend off the lusty advances of the mayor's daughter (Joan Hackett) - all without breaking a sweat or dirtying his shiny black boots!
