A gentle fable on familiar themes, lightly salted with irony by Clint Eastwood. Eastwood plays the title character, the head of a modern-day wild west show that scrabbles from town to town in the backwaters of the midwest, spreading the forgotten values of fair play, comradeship, and clean living (up to a point). Sondra Locke, as a spoiled heiress, enters via a plot device lifted from It Happened One Night. Eastwood's performance is dense and subtle, drawing on his natural shyness and gentility, though his direction—apart from two or three creatively edited sequences—is much less distinctive than it has been before. A minor film with a good heart—if anything, it's too lovable (1980).
