Franco and Ciccio on another hilarious adventure that takes them from Bourbon Sicily to the Old West
A film set in the American Old West that begins with Bourbon Sicily being attacked by Garibaldi and his men. It’s a Franco and Ciccio film, so why not? Farce is mixed with variety show gags on a relentless journey packed with fantastic comedy: our two antiheroes learning how to drive a stagecoach, Lino Banfi as an Apulian Mormon with seven wives and as many mothers-in-law, a stingy Scotsman who skimps on the bullets… And finally, after the two Sicilian half-bloods are admitted into a Cheyenne assembly (with the Indian names “Wild Horse” and “Rocking Horse”), a double wedding that will leave them wearing Indian headpieces as well as plenty of Neapolitan good luck charms. And to tell the truth, there’s much more as well.
Franco and Ciccio enrol in the Bourbon army just as Garibaldi and his men are arriving. They escape by hiding inside a crate of prickly pears and are shipped to the Old West. First they mistakenly end up in the Federal Army, then in an Indian encampment where they will have to face terrible tests of bravery.
