One of the best Carry On films
This is virtually a straight copy of those Bob Hope Westerns like Paleface and something or other Jesse James. Weedy bloke becomes sheriff after case of mistaken identity. With Carry On films, though, there's the Jim Dale rule, which is that the movies Jim Dale stars in are usually sweet, with a bit of a plot, and the ones he doesn't tend to be pre-peak or just terrible, like At Your Convenience or the camply awful Girls, both of which remain fascinating social documents but are genuinely bad films.

Cowboy isn't a good film, of course, but it is likeable. There's a great song. Sid James isn't the romantic lead, so you can breathe a sigh of relief and just sit back and enjoy it. Watch without irony - it's not cool to pretend there's another level to this pretty bad but genuinely charming little British film.
