Hope in perhaps his finest role as Painless Potter, a quack dentist travelling the Old West and getting into deep waters when he meets and is married by the trouble-shooting Calamity Jane as a cover for her secret activities as a government agent. The gags centre as always around his bluff bravado, but he was rarely given a better script (to which Frank Tashlin contributed) or a more responsive partner than the wittily seductive, sardonic and deceitful Jane Russell.
