James Garner, whose great ease and charm on screen has convinced generations that he was only playing himself, does his thing in the greatest comedy-western of all time, 1969s Support Your Local Sheriff!. Written by William Bowers and directed by Burt Kennedy, the movie spoofs everything which is near and dear to my heart, My Darling Clementine, Red River, Rio Bravo, High Noon and Winchester '73, et cetera.
Jim plays Jason McCullough, a stranger in town who drifts into the sheriff's job. Life is complicated by every character actor from every western you have ever seen including Walter Brennan, Harry Morgan, Jack Elam, Willis Bouchey, Walter Burke, Bruce Dern, Gene Evans and Kathleen Freeman.
The scene posted here for your pleasure has Jim/Jason working out his High Noon dilemma with off-kilter leading lady, Prudy, played by the extremely talented Joan Hackett.
