In this satire of westerns, smart railroad worker Bart becomes the first black sheriff of Rock Ridge, a frontier town soon to be destroyed to make way for a new railroad. At first, the people of Rock Ridge are skeptical about their new sheriff. However, they eventually respect him after realizing that Bart, and his perpetually drunk gunfighter and friend, are their only defense against the criminals sent to rid the town of its population.
