The film features actors Sid James, Jim Dale, Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Angela Douglas, Joan Sims, Bernard Bresslaw, Jon Pertwee, Peter Butterworth, Percy Herbert, Edina Ronay, Sydney Bromley, Lionel Murton, Davy Kaye, MPeter Gilmore and Margaret Nolan. The movie was filmed at Pinewood Studios nearby the Black Park district in the United Kingdom. The story follows the goings on in Stodge City, a town that went from being a puritan sort of utopian paradise very swiftly into a lawless, wild west and murderous town, after Sheriff Albert Earp (played by Jon Pertwee) is murdered by Johnny Finger, also known as The Rumpo Kid (played by Sid James). The call goes out for the replacement of the sheriff. But instead of a new lawman, a bumbling drainage engineer comes to town named Marshal P. Knutt (played by Jim Dale). He expects to clean up the place and consequently survives the efforts of his inept gang, Rumpo. He also deals with the tame Indians who are led by Chief Big Heap (played by Charles Hawtrey). They will do whatever it takes to receive their supply of fire water. Annie Oakley (played by Angela Douglas) is actually the daughter of the sheriff who was murdered and seeks revenge upon the killer. Belle, the saloon owner (played by Joan Sims) strikes up a romance with the new sheriff that appears to go well most of the time. However, he kind of fumbles around, stammering as if he does not really know what to say or do. In fact, Annie Oakley falls for him as well. The mayor (played by Kenneth Williams) takes a stab at helping out the new sheriff, however, he is largely unsuccessful. Chief Big Heap's son, Little Heap (played by Bernard Bresslaw) has his hands full learning how to help out and be an asset to the cause.
