Garner is great in his role as the opportunistic, but effective, sheriff. Jack Elam co-stars as his deputy, and the antics of this pair are enough to keep anyone entertained throughout the movie. Anyone familiar with Westerns from this era will appreciate the humor of this parody on Hollywood's Wild West.
James Garner is excellent in this movie. His timing, expressions, and delivery of lines are as close to perfection as anything can be. All of the scenes with three-time Oscar winner Walter Brennan are a hoot. I particularly like the supporting cast. Many of the character actors that I grew up with are in this movie: Harry Morgan, Henry Jones, Jack Elam, among others. What a fine actor Bruce Dern is. Compare his portrayal as the lovable and stupid Joe Danby, with his portrayal of the crumb that shot the Duke in "The Cowboys."
This truly is one movie that tickles my funny bone. I laugh every time I watch it. I guess that is a good definition of classic humor. I prefer this send-up of the cowboy genre over Mel Brooks's more ribald send-up, "Blazing Saddles."
James Garner is terrific as the lightning quick gunslinger with even quicker wits. The supporting cast includes Harry Morgan, Walter Brennan, Bruce Dern and Jack Elam. This may be Elam's finest performance ever.
There's plenty of action, plenty of laughter and a dollop of romance thrown in for good measure. Support Your Local Sheriff is great family entertainment; perfect for a rainy day, a lazy day, or just while you're passing through on your way to Australia.
