Additional Info

Curley and Lobo stop by the dance hall for some sarsaparilla served by the loveliest girls in the West. Poor Curley falls in love with the beautiful Miss Lilly only to discover that she's to marry Sergeant Terwilliger. He sells his gun, his saddle, and woefully, even his horse, to buy some guaranteed love potion from Princess Grinning Fox. He slips it into the sarsaparilla - and boy, does it work. Suddenly all the girls are in love with our hero. A thoroughly modern western that's a riot of laughs from sunup to sundown.
