It came to mind because I keep hearing this commercial about 'Texas superfoods'.
In the movie there is a guy hawking some magic potion that supposes to cure everything from hangnails to hangovers, just water with hot sauce and snake heads in it, and I think, nothing new under the sun.
Would never have seen Little Big Man except my girlfriend in 1988 had seen it and recommended it, and what a surprise! Great movie. I can only imagine how many of these gems are out there. I guess I will have to add Support Your Local Sheriff to the list of must-see because the trailer looks pretty convincing.
I can't think of the movie off the top of my head, but I recall one where one of the protagonists was an appalling shot, until his gunfighter friend bought him a pistol blunderbus? Any ideas on what this was?
Not exactly as you describe it, Lieste, but in El Dorado James Caan's character, Mississippi (real name, Alan Bodillion Trehern), is handy with knives but couldn't hit the ground with a gun if he shot straight down. John Wayne's character, Cole Thornton, gives him a sawed-off shotgun with which he still misses the bad guy but hits a sign which falls on the bad guy. Could that be what you're thinking about?
