The Frisco Kid is a 1979 western comedy directed by Robert Aldrich (The Dirty Dozen). The film follows the story of Rabbi Avram, played by Gene Wilder (Young Frankenstein, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory), and his mission to travel across country to San Francisco to take a new wife and become the Rabbi of a local synagogue. Completely unfamiliar with the ways of American and certainly the Wild West, Avram stumbles upon a wily bank robber named Tommy (Harrison Ford). Together they head west and find themselves on the run from ruthless outlaws and almost killed by Native Americans. Avram must find ways to deal and adapt his religious ways and morals to fit the new world of American culture. Easily frustrated, Tommy just can't seem to wrap his head around the laws to the Jewish faith. Their relationship is rocky at best, but through their hard times they come to realize that their friendship is priceless.
