Product Description

Amazon.ca

Gene Wilder takes his most unusual role, a naive 19th-century rabbi sent from his native Poland to the fledgling Jewish community in San Francisco, in this warm-hearted comic adventure. The trusting soul is easy prey for the con men and criminals who prey on the immigrants arriving in the Philadelphia port and the rabbi, beaten but unbowed, continues his trek West solo: broke, underequipped, and hopelessly lost. Harrison Ford, fresh from Star Wars, is the roguish outlaw who adopts the determined traveler and the two become unlikely friends as they make their way through one scrape after another. Wilder makes a sincere and sympathetic hero, his faith and courage seeing him through one crisis after another, and fresh-faced Ford makes an endearing scamp of a bank robber. The meandering adventure, overlong at two hours, takes its time as the duo traverses the gorgeous American countryside and end up in the bustling Barbary Coast San Francisco of the Gold Rush era. Legendary hard-edged action director Robert Aldrich (Kiss Me Deadly, The Dirty Dozen) brings a gentle touch and easygoing humor to this family-oriented adventure, but old habits die hard. While staying within PG parameters, Aldrich adds a little grit to the Old West fistfights and gunfights. --Sean Axmaker

Two totally different character (both are my best favoriteds) come together in a really funny and awkward situation. The solution
of the story really good and enjoyable. Who like to laugh have to see the film.

We saw this movie several times, and loved it. We showed it to some friends last night, and sat back and laughed all over again. Love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gene Wilder Fans Will Enjoy July 25 2010
By Janine
Format:DVD
The Frisco Kid is one of Gene Wilder's more understated movies. I don't know how many people out there know about it unless your a big fan like myself. This is a western based movie with Harrison Ford as the playing the straight guy who is an Outlaw, and Gene Wilder playing a naive Polish Rabbi who's out of his element trying to cross American to get to San Francisco. With Ford's help Wilder learns a lot about the American West, and finds a friend that accepts him for who he is. Of course, there's plenty of whacky sistuations throughout the movie. For the Gene Wilder lovers out there I recommend picking this movie up and adding it to your collection.
