A KOSHER COWBOY WITHOUT A PRAYER - BUT WITH PLENTY OF LAUGHS
It's 1850, and new rabbi Avram Belinski sets out from Philadelphia toward San Francisco. Cowpoke bandit Tom Lillard hasn't seen in a rabbi before. But he knows when one needs help. And getting this tenderfoot to Frisco in one piece will cause rouble - with the law, Native Americans and a bunch of killers.
Gene Wilder and Harrison Ford are one feisty team as rabbi and rescuer in this rough-'n'-ready romp that rivals Wilder's earlier Blazing Saddles in Wild West hilarity. Director Robert Aldrich is a seasoned hand at blending roughhouse and laughter, as fans of his earlier TheDirty Dozen and The Longest Yard will attest. With a full posse of screen talents, The Frisco Kid rides tall in the comedy saddle.
