So much is coming together!
I admit that it's pretty lame when the title of your movie is literally the actor as the title role. I am not going to see the other films in this series simply because they're too long and I didn't like this enough to see the other installments. I do like the environment this movie sets up. Everything is pretty interesting to look at and Kenny Rogers plays a good, well, gambler. It's strange how he is in fact given a name in the movie, Brady. I had to see this movie because according to Poobala's crossover website, the film series connects eight Westerns together!
Yes, according to him, the films put together feature characters and elements from "Bat Masterson", "Cheyenne", "Have Gun Will Travel", "Kung Fu", "The Life And Legend Of Wyatt Earp", "Maverick", "The Rifleman", and "The Westerner"! This movie only features those from "The Rifleman", "The Life And Legend Of Wyatt Earp", and "Cheyenne". It really is a pity that there weren't any characters from "Gunsmoke", easily the most famous of all these Westerns. I never grew up watching ANY of these shows. Honestly, I don't even think the Laff A Lympics brought together eight shows! This has more links than anything else on Poobala's website. While I just found this passable, I really do admire this series featuring characters from nearly every popular Western of the 1950's and 1960's. I know I'd get a lot of facts wrong if I went into further detail. While it's too bad I'm not familiar with any of these shows, if you are, then check this out! **1/2
