The Shakiest Gun in the West is a 1968 comedy directed by Alan Rafkin. In 1870, Jesse W. Haywood (Don Knotts) is a new graduate of a Philadelphia dental school, and he decides to head to the frontier to start a practice. As he is traveling to the West, his stagecoach is held up by Penelope 'Bad Penny' Cushings (Barbara Rhoades), who is soon caught by the authorities. In order to avoid jail time, Penny agrees to catch a ring of gun smugglers working with the Indians. She recruits Jesse's help, getting him to pretend to be her husband as a disguise. As they constantly get into funny scrapes while trying to thwart the criminals, gun-toting Penny wards off their attackers while bumbling, city slicker Jesse thinks that he is the one scaring them away. The Shakiest Gun in the West is a fun, laugh-out-loud film that is a comedic take on the traditional Western film genre.
