5 out of 5 rating. 1 Reviews
Set in No Name City, California during the gold rush, this musical comedy concerns prospectors Ben and Pardner and their unusual nuclear family. The business partners strike a deal to share Ben's wife Elizabeth, whom Ben purchased from a Mormon. But the free-thinking Ben is worried about rivalry over Elizabeth from the town's all-male population, hungry for female company. So he arranges to kidnap a stagecoach full of working girls on their way to a nearby city, and sets up a brothel in No Name. That puts the place on the map and business booms, but competition for gold also grows. Later, needing cash to survive the winter, Ben and an accomplice, Mad Jack Duncan, tunnel under the town's buildings to catch loose golddust falling from the floorboards. But No Name collapses under the strain, and everyone moves on, except for Pardner and Elizabeth.
