It all started when Ambrose Groves and Bert Miller, a couple of would-be vaudeville comedians, were crossing the desert headin' California way and got booted off the train because someone stole their tickets and all of their money. After trudging across the desert for a couple of days, they blow into Dead Man's Gulch, the wildest, woolliest, roughest spot in the wild West, where everybody fights everybody and blood flows like Old Faithful. Now it just so happens that Homer The Kid and his pal, Gun Smoke Carter, the two hardest shootin', hardest ridin' cowpokes to straddle a saddle, are expected to breeze into town that day to quell the shootin'. So when Ambrose and Bert hobble in, they are mistaken for the West's most fearless cowpunchers! Ambrose is taken for the hero, Homer The Kid, and from there on out, it's a knock-down, drag-out of laughs! Bungling Ambrose winds up doing everything opposite from the cowpuncher's union . . . he doesn't get the goods on the crooked sheriff; he's completely beaten and soundly trounced by Hoot Owl Pete; practically hung by Stinkweed; and he doesn't get the heroine, Nancy, either! But he does get things in the most devastating of devastating messes in this hilarious satire on the old West. One interior set.
