A stagecoach delivering money to Galveston is ambushed by a gang led by a hired killer named Matson (Charles Bronson), but they're fought off by Zack Thomas (Frank Sinatra) and Joe Jarrett (Dean Martin). The stage wrecks and Joe makes off with money, leaving Zack in the dust. Zack was to use the funds to purchase an old riverboat and turn it into Galveston's gambling jewel of the Gulf Coast, a business arrangement with town banker Harvey Burden (Victor Buono). Jarrett arrives in town with the same plan, and meets widow Max Richter (Ursula Andress), owner of the coveted, broken-down boat. Jarrett & Max, and Zack & Elya Carlson (Anita Ekberg), Galveston's high society madam, begin a game of one-upmanship to gain final control of the vessel. Unknown to our heroes, Burden wants it all for himself, and he's the man behind Matson. Opening night arrives, and Joe and Zack engage in a winner-take-all brawl, but Matson is laying in wait to assassinate both.

The Three Stooges guest star as inept delivery men, who run afoul of two elderly ladies (Ellen Corby, Jesslyn Fax) protesting the delivery of a nude painting to the riverboat lounge. Moe, Larry & Curly Joe perform the "point to the right" and "he's from Texas" routines.

Filmed in CinemaScope and TechniColor.

Yes, that's Ellen Corby (THE WALTONS) as one of the little old ladies who pummel the Stooges. Ms. Corby began her career behind-the-camera in the 1930s as a script supervisor at the Hal Roach Studios. At that time she was married to Roach cinematographer Francis Corby, and she worked on the films of Laurel & Hardy, Our Gang, Charley Chase, Todd & Kelly, more.
