Ass-breaker Dingus Magee is looking for a gold train when he comes upon old acquaintance Hoke Birdsill on stage to San Francisco, California, and robs him of his money. Hoke goes to the nearby town of Yerkey's Hole, where Belle Knops is both Mayor and bordello-madam. She appoints Hoke town Sheriff and tries to get him to stir up the Indians so the soldiers at the nearby fort (the main customers) won't go to Little Big Horn. Dingus tries to stir up more trouble, and gets involved with the pale, baby-talking Indian, Anna. The film is a send-up of the oft-repeated phrase "the Code of the West" and exaggerates it and for what it stands into the ridiculousness that it is.Written by

In several shots during the cavalry troop scene, Anna is replaced by an obvious stunt double wearing skin-colored tights, including when Dingus and Anna run their horses into the wagon 'half-moon', and when driving the gunpowder wagon away from the cavalry. See more »
If you liked Frank Sinatra's Tony Rome, you'll like Dirty Dingus Magee. It's a ridiculous, silly sex comedy with an abundance of gags about sex and cleavage, like many 1960s comedies. In the 60s, the restrictive Hays Code was lifted, so films were able to make jokes like that, and show a moderate amount of nudity. So, when you look at it from that perspective, of course Hollywood would go a little nuts making T & A jokes!
Dirty Dingus Magee is the name of Frank Sinatra's character; he's a womanizing thief who talks his way out of many sticky situations. The film starts as George Kennedy reunites with Frank; he's not happy to see him, and we soon find out why. Frankie talks and talks, and before we know it, he's robbed George of his nest egg and his favorite hat! The rest of the movie is a tug-of-war between George and Frankie, trying to rob, fight, arrest, and get ahead of the other. It's set in the Wild West, so there are cowboys, Indians, stagecoaches, and babes in brothels galore!
As silly as it is—and it is really silly—I actually thought this movie was very funny. George and Frankie have great chemistry together, and both their comedic timings are excellent. It's fast paced and doesn't milk the same joke over and over. Once a gag's been done, Joseph Heller and Tom and Frank Waldman write a new one, equally light-hearted and funny. If you've had a hard week, rent Dirty Dingus Magee and take a load off—just hold on to your hat!
