| Hilarious spoof of westerns
This is a Phil Silvers Special that was aired on TV in 1960. It is available on DVD or VHS (check Google). This is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen, and I usually don't like Phil Silvers. It has great writing and characters, and is a true spoof of westerns, not forced comedy. There are lots of character actor guest stars, including Marion Ross (Happy Days) as Phil's girlfriend, and Jack Benny in a typically funny role as a cowardly cheapskate. Nat Hiken, who wrote the script, also wrote Silvers' Bilko show from the 50s, and Car 54 Where Are You, an underrated TV show from the 60s with Fred Gwynn. If you want some good laughs and also have in your video collection a delightful nostalgic reminder of "good TV" with no dirty humor or four letter words, do yourself a favor and buy this show.
