Dean Martin (Rio Bravo) and Brian Keith (The McKenzie Break) star in this high-spirited western packed with laughs and plenty of action. All Joe Baker (Martin) ever wanted was to do Something Big… really big. But in order to accomplish it, he has to hold up a stagecoach, kidnap a beautiful woman, trade her to a shady racketeer for a Gatling gun, and try to outrun his fiancé who's come to reclaim her man. Something Big is classic Dean Martin in the grand style only he can create. Wonderfully directed by Andrew V. McLaglen (Cahill U.S. Marshal) and beautifully shot by the great Harry Stradling, Jr. (Convoy). The stellar cast includes Honor Blackman, Merlin Olsen, Joyce Van Patten, Carol White, Albert Salmi, Don Knight, Robert Donner, David Huddleston and western legends Ben Johnson, Harry Carey Jr., Denver Pyle, Paul Fix and Bob Steele.
