The Wild West has never been wilder… or funnier!
In one of his most popular roles, comedy legend Bob Hope plays “Painless” Peter Potter, a timid correspondence school dentist earning a shaky living in the lawless West. When “Painless” is seduced into agreeing to a quickie marriage by the voluptuous Jane Russell, he thinks his luck has changed. Little does he suspect that Russell is actually sharpshooter Calamity Jane, hot on the trail of a dangerous renegade gang who is using “Painless” as her cover and unwitting dupe.
This Old West burlesque, brightened by Technicolor ® and uproarious slapstick, went on to become one of Bob Hope’s best-loved films and his biggest box office hit, featuring the Academy Award ® winning song “Buttons and Bows.” Saddle up for a wild comic ride loaded with rare extra features.
