Genre: Comedy, Buddies, Culture Clash, Thieves

Tagline: The greatest cowboy ever to ride into the Wild West. From Poland.

Plot: In Robert Aldrich's hysterical comedic Western THE FRISCO KID, a sweetly innocent Polish rabbi, Avram Belinsky (Gene Wilder), travels through 1850s America toward his new congregation and wife in San Francisco. Along the way, he forms an uneasy alliance with an inept bank robber, Tommy (Harrison Ford). As Avram teaches Tommy about the Torah, Tommy instructs Avram on how to handle a gun, and the two cut a meandering, pratfall-filled path across the wild West, encountering Indians, settlers, and merciless outlaws. Aldrich (TOO LATE THE HERO, WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?), a master of the penetrating psychodrama, the rousing war saga, and the icy, violent noir, here slips the standard Western concoction a dizzying, hilarious mickey of slapstick humor with his two feckless protagonists, played with gusto and perfect timing by Wilder and Ford.
