Summary :

Meet the hard-riding, fast-shooting, red-blooded idol of the Hollywood range, Zip LeBaron, whose name annually merchandises millions of boxes of breakfast foods, ten-gallon hats, boots, etc., and whose personal life is as squeaky-clean as the Boy Scout Manual. One day, fed up with Hollywood hypocrisy, Mister Zip quits the movies. Accompanied only by his ancient, feisty sidekick Slanthead Elder, he goes looking for the real West, which he is sure still exists somewhere. The resulting stampede of adventure affectionately plays off Hollywood clichés against the actual West of the 1950's, and lopes eccentrically toward the destruction, or fulfillment, of the hero's innocence.
