The Frisco Kid

Rating:PG
Release Date:January 1, 1979
Running time:122 minutes
Cast:Gene Wilder, Harrison Ford
Director:Robert Aldrich
Writer:Michael Elias & Frank Shaw

Description: Robert Aldrich returns to the western-spoof genre he'd previously explored in Four for Texas with The Frisco Kid. Gene Wilder plays Polish rabbi Avram Belinsky, who intends to set up a congregation in San Francisco. Eminently unsuited for life in the Old West, poor Avram is victimized by everyone with whom he comes in contact. Salvation arrives in the unlikely form of taciturn bank robber Tommy (Harrison Ford). Incredibly, Tommy takes a liking to the feckless Avram, and together the two men embark on a series of seriocomic adventures.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
