SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF! (Theatrical Release USA 1969)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Support Your Local Sheriff!
A complete entertainment winner with its choice of James Garner, Joan Hackett, Walter Brennen, Harry Morgan, Jack Elam, and Bruce Dern. The charisma between this casting mix, the terrific dialogue lines, and the little nuances that play between the actors in each scene make this movie excellent entertainment for the whole family. It is re-watchable and belongs in a home video library. The movie is a treasure. Enjoyable from its beginning to its end, one wonders why this particular playfulness isn’t captured more often on film.
