In this western comedy, a bogus evangelist and his assistant travel to the town of Friendly and endeavor to rob the West's purportedly most unrobbable bank. Unfortunately, they are not the only bandits planning to rob the bank. Their rivals in robbery include a Mexican bandido and his dullard son. A gunman and his assistant also want to attempt a heist. To make things even more confusing, a Texas Ranger and his six Chinese-American G-men pose as laundrymen to investigate a crooked mayor. They all converge on Friendly at the same time and chaos ensues when they meet. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
The Great Bank Hoax
Also known as The Great Georgia Bank Hoax and Shenanigans, this trenchant comedy is an attempt at political satire. As an "object lesson," small-town bank clerk Richard (Paul Sand) embezzles $100,000. He plans to give it back immediately, but Richard's boss Jack (Burgess Meredith), already aware of the missing money and terrified that the loss will reflect badly on him, stages a $200,000 robbery to cover up the discrepancy. When the insurance folks threaten to prosecute, everyone in town conspires to replace the loot, thereby further complicating matters. The "Watergate" analogies in The Great Bank Hoax couldn't be ignored even if one tried. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
