      I recently discovered I could load one of my childhood favorite movies on our Netflix instant watch viewer and, last night, for the first time in years, I watched the movie The Shakiest Gun in the West. I remembered this being a great movie full of comedy and action.

      And, guess what, it was.

      I’m still not a huge Don Knotts fan.


      But, he was fantastic in this movie, which had him starring as a dentist turned gunfighter who marries a former outlaw turned government agent and then moves west with her on a wagon train (she helps him build a reputation of being good with a gun despite the fact he can’t hit the broad side of a barn).

      If you watch closely ...


      • enough, you’ll see quite a few recognizable actors in the background.

        I, for one, saw William Christopher (Father Mulcahy on MASH) and Pat Morita (from Karate Kid and Happy Days).

        And, I’m not sure, but I think one of the women early in the movie was Aunt Bea’s best friend on the Andy Griffith Show.

        When I started this movie last night,

        I figured I would have to watch it in two parts and finish it up over the weekend.

        Instead, I was so caught up into it, I ended up watching the whole thing last night and just went to bed late.

        If you are looking for a good comedy western that isn’t named Blazing Saddles, this is a movie I would recommend to you.

        It’s great, funny, family fun.
