Support Your Local GunfighterRating: 3.3/5 (with 2424 votes)
Support Your Local Gunfighter is a 1971 comic Western film directed by Burt Kennedy and starring James Garner. It was written by James Edward Grant. The film shares many cast and crew members and plot elements with the earlier Support Your Local Sheriff!, but is not a sequel. It actually parodies Yojimbo and its remake A Fistful of Dollars, using the basic storyline of a stranger who wanders into a feuding town and pretends to work as an enforcer for both sides. Garner later wrote the film was, "not as good as Support Your Local Sheriff". ()
