A Polish rabbi wanders through the Old West on his way to lead a synagogue in San Francisco. On the way he is nearly burnt at the stake by Indians and almost killed by outlaws.
This movie wasn't the first time the title "The Frisco Kid" was used. There was another western, Frisco Kid (1935), but this film was not a remake of that one.
Chicken, chicken, chicken! Chickie-chickie-chickie-chicken! Come here,
Avram: I don't want to hurt you, I just want to eat you.
Avram: Come here, wait! I don't want to hurt you! I just want to make you kosher!
In the first scene where Avram is thrown from the wagon and proceeds to pick up his belongings thrown out earlier, after picking up everything he finally gets to his suitcase and exclaims, "This, you couldn't throw out first?!". In fact, the suitcase was thrown out first - that's why he got to it last as he backtracked.
