Product Description

Frisco Kid, The (DVD)

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

Product Description
It's 1850 and new rabbi Avram Belinski sets out from Philadelphia toward San Francisco. Cowpoke bandit Tom Lillard hasn't seen a rabbi before. But he knows when one needs a heap of help. And getting this tenderfoot to Frisco in one piece will cause a heap of trouble - with the law, Native Americans and a bunch of killers. Gene Wilder and Harrison Ford are one feisty team as rabbi and rescuer in this rough-'n'-ready romp that rivals Wilder's earlier Blazing Saddles in Wild West hilarity. Director Robert Aldrich is a seasoned hand at blending roughhouse and laughter, as fans of his earlier The Dirty Dozen and The Longest Yard will attest. With a full posse of screen talents, The Frisco Kid rides tall in the comedy saddle. Director: Robert Aldrich Starring: Gene Wilder, Harrison Ford, Ramon Bieri --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Maybe it's old fashioned, but goodness is alive and well and in this movie. Coupled with a believable plot and natural humor, this is my all time favorite. Gene Wilder is wonderful. His facial expressions alone deserve an award. As Rabbi Avram Belinski, his innocence, his spirit and determination are the anchor for much of the humor. Enter a young Harrison Ford, who, as Tom, despite being a bandit, has an innocence of his own. In spite of himself, he helps the Rabbi make his way across the frontier West. But this is no namby-pamby goody-goody movie. There are killers on their trail, Indians, and -- thanks to Tom -- the law, and the elements the Rabbi and Tom must contend with.
Robert Aldrich directed, and it shows. There are no slack moments here, and the respect and dignity he obtains from each performer is characteristic. Especially wonderful is the encounter between the Rabbi and Tom with the Indians. All ages can enjoy this movie -- each age will see a different perspective, perhaps, but there is nothing that has to be explained to the young ones because the movie tells the tale so well.

"The Frisco Kid" didn't do much at all at the box office when it came out. The movie-going world was still reeling from the impact of the previous year's offering of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and a western comedy just didn't have the drawing power.
If you take the time to watch this show, however, you will find that it is a real treasure!
A young student at a rabbical in Poland is enamured with the American west. When he graduates he is given the assignment of his dreams...to take a copy of the Torah with him, sail to America, and lead the fledgling Jewish community in the "village of San Francisco." Where is that? he asks..."By New York."
The casting of Gene Wilder as the young rabbi, and Harrison Ford as a rough and tumble, carrousing, card playing, bank robber clicks.
The gullible young rabbi is fleeced as soon as he hits American soil, but he is still determined to recover what is his, and to make the cross-country journey to California. One thing leads to another, and the rabbi and cowboy meet up. The best parts of the movie are the conversations the rabbi has with himself, as if he were teaching himself.
From mishap to misadventure, this is a real "keeper."
I highly recommend this show...it rings authentic in many respects, and has truly funny parts in it. One of my favorite bits is when the rabbi will not ride his horse until the end of the Sabbath, even though there's a posse on their trail. You'll see one perturbed Harrison Ford in that scene.
5 stars through and through.

Of the many wonderful perfomances Gene Wilder has given us--Willy Wonka, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles--his character of the rabbi in The Frisco Kid holds the warmest spot in my heart. There is a sweetness and a depth in Avram that we rarely see in combination. There are humor and excitement and some twists that you just don't expect to find in most westerns. The immigrant Avram encounters a mid 19th century America that is both frightening and uplifting. Watch for the different groups and individuals who help and protect him as he makes his way from Philadelphia to San Francisco. Wilder's performance is dead-on from the moment we see him trying to skate (or is it walk) on a frozen pond in Poland. Harrison Ford's outlaw/best friend starts weakly (probably due to the script rather than his performance), but becomes more and more attuned to what Wilder is doing as the two make their way across the country. Watch this movie with your best friend, and don't turn off your set when the closing credits start to roll. The final shot is something special.

I am sure there are those of you out there that remember this comedy-western form the late 70's. For those of you that don't, I highly recommend this movie. Gene Wilder and Harrison Ford star as an unlikely pair traveling across America in the Old West. Gene Wilder plays a rabbi trying to get to San Francisco for his own wedding. On the way he is robbed by some two-bit thieves. He teams up with Harrison Ford and the two embark on a series of humorous mishaps as they try and get back the rabbi's stolen goods including his Torah. The movie really has some funny moments and even if you are not a big western fan this movie will leave you highly entertained. It will leave you with a "feel good" attitude when the end credits roll. The dance number with Gene Wilder and some Indians is absolutely classic. The movie is a must for Gene Wilder fans. I feel this is one of his best movies. Watch The Frisco Kid today!

This film is a feel-good crowd pleaser! Gene Wilder is superb in his portrayal of a non-worldly, brand new Polish Rabbi shipped off to America and the Wild West. Hidden within the comedic role of the Rabbi is a man of devote faith and sensitivity. Harrison Ford, the cowboy, fills the role of "straight man" to Wilder's top banana presentation. The two make a great team as they travel from New York to San Francisco through the West of the early 1800's.
OK, this isn't highly sophisticated comedy. The Academy won't ever give an Oscar for it's drama. It is however, a well done film with good character development and besides, it's just plain fun.
My only complaint about this film is that The Frisco Kid isn't in DVD format yet. As soon as it is, I'm trading in my VHS copy.
