The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw

An oddball comic Western, shot by Walsh on Spanish locations (and British studio interiors), with Kenneth More as the unsuccessful English inventor, turned gun salesman in the American West, who is mistaken for a gunman and eventually tames the town with the aid of some amiable Indians. Chiefly memorable for the strange vision of buxom Jayne Mansfield and wimpish sheriff More grappling with the incompatibility of their bodies, providing an occasional hoot and many an exercise in single entendre. DMacp.

Neither for the serious student of 19th century western nor for the follower of hard faced westerns. Good fun in its time. Pleasantly lighthearted.
