The times of the gold rush: Jack Smith (Johnny Quinn) and Tubby (David Roberts) have to skip town on the rather sudden, Jack because he tried to con everyone out of everything, Tubby because he killed a man for having sex with his prostitute lover - and since people back there and then weren't exactly of a forgiving nature, those wronged by Jack and Tubby form a lynch mob in no time to go after them. Thank God then that our heroes have a head-start of aout a day or so ...

On their way to God-knows-where, Jack and Tubby stumble upon a prospector (Robert Nolan) who's dying but who has actually found gold. With his dying breath, he asks our heroes to give him a Christian burial and hand the gold over to his wife - he even gives them the location of his claim in exchange. But once he has passed on, neither Jack nor Tubby feel the urge to dig a hole for the body, build a cross or visit the prospector's wife - rather they decide to check out his goldmine right away and get silly rich in the process.

Too bad then that the prospector died on Indian ground, and if you have ever seen the average of one horror film, you probably knows what that means ...

 

The Prospector's Curse is above all else one thing: Fun! Caught somewhere between an EC Comics-style cautionary tale, a spaghetti Western and comedy à la Laurel and Hardy, this film tells an entertaining little tale that easily balances slapstick and the macabre, that might be somewhat predictable but tells its story in an original way, is beautifully filmed and profits from a subtle direction that doesn't go just for cheap jokes.

Seriously, this is a fun quarter of an hour! Recommended.
