Four Eyes and Six Guns ★★½ 1993

In 1882 a New York optometrist, who's a fan of the popular dimestore western novels, moves to Tombstone, Arizona, in search of adventure. He's just in time, too, because Sheriff Wyatt Earp is trying to rid the town of those pesky Doom Brothers but is having a problem with his eyesight (causing his gunshots to go astray). Now if the greenhorn can just get Earp to wear his new glasses. Silly but harmless fluff. 92m/C VHS . Judge Reinhold, Patricia Clarkson, Dan Hedaya, M. Emmet Walsh, Austin Pendleton, Fred Ward; D: Piers Haggard; W: Leon Prochnik. CABLE
