An old geezer recalls some of the antics of the men and women of his western town, more wild and woolly than Tombstone or Dodge City. In this town no one is a good shot, the women are hungry for new meat, and practical jokers abound. A stranger strolls into town, proving resistant to the mayhem, and after donning some cowboy duds begins cleaning up that town.

According to Roger Ebert, the film was "an ambitious attempt at comedy and satire. It is one of Meyer's personal favorites, but did badly at the box-office because, he now believes, he paid too much attention to the humor and not enough to the sex, and was over-cautious in assigning pasties to his actresses."
