Editorial Reviews

There's magic in the memories as great Disney moments are captured right here for you and your family to enjoy. A two-gun terror and his terrified twin brother turn an old cowtown upside down. A blazing, rip-roaring, riotous saga of brotherly competition in a winner-take-all battle for an inheritance. Jim Dale (PETE'S DRAGON, UNIDENTIFIED FLYING ODDBALL) stars in a triple-header of a role, pulling all the stops out as he plays three different people: Old Jasper Bloodshy and his two sons.

3.0 out of 5 stars Safe, pleasant, silly Disney western November 26, 2006
Pioneering old man Jasper Bloodshy presumably - strong emphasis on the word `presumably' - leaps off a cliff to his death. His will is read and, to the surprise of all, it mentions a second son. The old man's fortune will go to either gunslinging son Wild Billy or his Philadelphia sibling, `tambourine thumping' missionary Eli, depending on who wins a frontier version of an iron man race.

HOT LEAD AND COLD FEET is a featherweight comedy/western produced by the Disney factory in 1978. The three Bloodshys are all played by British actor Jim Dale. Wild Billy is impossibly bad, Eli impossibly good, and old man Jasper takes an awful lot of pratfalls. Come to think of it, everyone takes at least one pratfall here, but Jasper seems to do it most often and from higher places. In any event, Eli (with two young orphaned children in tow, natch) travels west from Philly to the wild and rambunctious town of Bloodshy to compete in the race, become determined to clean up the town, and falls in love with the town's new school teacher, Karen Valentine. The movie is a series of slapstick routines, with some serious, unstressed undertones - the kids want a father, Eli wants to bring civilization to a lawless town. The slapstick and roughhousing is of the gentlest variety. Every five feet or so there's either a fistfight or a rowdy firing off his six-shooter, but no blood is ever spilt, no bullets ever find flesh. All things considered, this is about as gentle as they come.

The supporting cast is pretty strong. Although Don Knotts seems to be prominently featured in most of the posters and dvd jackets, his role is fairly small. He's the nervous sheriff of Bloodshy, and his biggest scenes come when he squares off against Rattlesnake (Jack Elam).

4.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE CLASSIC COMEDIES August 21, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Great performance by Knotts and Elam. This is not the Elam from other westerns. This is the Elam playing himself. He really is a fun-loving guy. Take a GOOD HA HA! This is rare footage and well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic! April 30, 2004
By chalyx
When I was growing up, this was one of the many classic Disney movies we had taped from the tv, among others, like Snowball Express and Follw Me, Boys. But this is definitely my favorite. After all these years, I still memorize the song in the opening credits, and I can probably recite half the movie.

I have been waiting for this to come out on DVD for about 6 years, and I'm so glad I'll finally have the chance to own it!

5.0 out of 5 stars With such classic Knotts dialog. . . May 17, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
. . .how can you say no?

Sheriff Denver Kid: Ssshhh! He's here!

Mayor Ragsdale: Who?

SDK: Rattlesnake! But I've got the edge on him!

MR: You do? How?

SDK: Because he's here and I know he's here. And he knows I know he's here. But what he doesn't know is that I know he knows I know he's here. So I've got the edge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another classic back for the next generations March 23, 2006
By Renae
Just like Private Eyes, Don Knotts and Tim Conway have stolen the screen again. A very unique comedy/western that only Disney could pull off. With a cast of Jim Dale and Jack Elam, only to be backed with Knotts and Conway, you know it's a winner. I grew up with this as one of my favorite movies, playing it over and over again. I am so thrilled Disney is starting to re-release classics.

I loved this movie as a child and can now share it with my neice and nephews. It is wonderful to watch a movie and not have to worry about what's on the screen. Good wholesome family entertainment!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Hot Lead, Cold Feet June 17, 2009
A classic western farce, this movie was purchased for my grandchildren. My two-year-old will watch this movie over and over again, almost never blinking. Of course, I watch it with her (most of the time), and though repeated viewings will jade one's opinion, the grands continue to enjoy this movie time and time again. Seems proof enough for me that this Don Knotts comedy has stood the test of time.

This movie stars Jim Dale, an almost unknown to most, as a "twin" who inherits a vast fortune and western town. Don Knotts plays a rather small part, but does a great job. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of Don Knotts's best!
I've loved this movie since I was a kid. The race between quiet city-boy and rambunctious western bad boy is hilarious, as is the byplay between the old man and his valet. Read more
