Good Ol' Movie Diversion: Cat Ballou.

Got a couple hours to get silly and emotional at the same time?
Try this movie.
Jane Fonda turns in a touching performance as a girly-girl outlaw while all the men around her act like complete fools, with Lee Marvin going over the top to win an Academy Award playing a hopelessly drunk hired gun. All through this engaging farce, two banjo wielding jokers (Nat King Cole and Stubby Kaye) appear here and there to sing the Ballad of Cat Ballou as you watch. It's delightful.
