      Audience Member The funniest Fred Astaire movie ever, LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member A pair of Western comedies with a concept - make the sidekicks the stars. The made-for-TV (by Aaron Spelling) result is servicable enough, but too sterile for my taste. In the first, Pat O'Brien plays an aged former Texas Ranger captain whose daughter summons him to Boulder, where the town is being run into the ground by a corrupt mayor and his cronies. Her husband, Ricky Nelson, is running for mayor but doesn't stand a chance. The captain sends out the call for the best of his former crew - all guys who are washed up and slowed down by age. So we have Walter Brennan, Chill Wills and Edgar Buchanan. The cast also includes squeaky voiced Andy Devine (as a corrupt judge), and Jack Elam as the bad sheriff. Good enough for a sequel, part two leaves out Pat O'Brien and concentrates on Brennan, Wills and Buchanan. They get word that a former Ranger friend is in trouble in Waco. They arrive and find out that he is dead. They head to the saloon for a drink and notice an old drunk at the end of the bar. Well, that's their friend, the Baltimore Kid, played by Fred Astaire. They take him and get him sobered up and cleaned up. Soon, he's ready to be town marshall, with the help of the three aged Rangers. These were part of a four-movie disc that was purchased for $5 at Farm and Fleet in Bloomington, Illinois. I beginning to believe this was a money losing proposition all around - for me, for the store and for the company that packaged these crap movies on DVD. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member This sequel is equal too if not a little bit better than the original, it has a more interesting plot, but it still is lacking in many ways. The presence of Fred Astaire is a good thing. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Same as the first one for me...not my style. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member 110910: Though it made me laugh a couple times, I just found this sequel lost its comedic edge. Much better picture quality than the first. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Brazos! Cheaply made for TV western isn't as good as the original (and the original wasn't all that good either) and substitutes Fred Astaire as the Baltimore Kid for Pat O'Brien as Captain Hayes. But its still nice to see all the old character actors like Brennan, Devine, Wills and Buchanan together in one film. And personally I never complain about seeing the lovely Lana Wood. If you're looking for anything more than that, you're looking in the wrong place. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
