The Sheriff and the Satellite Kid is an Italian comedy western, not so much "spaghetti" as "pablum." Tough sheriff Bud Spencer experiences a Close Encounter on the lone prairie. From out of a visiting spacecraft steps Cary Guffey, who befriends Spencer on the spot. Gaining a reputation as "The Satellite Kid," Guffey becomes the fastest gun--or laser--in the West. The Sheriff and the Satellite Kid bypassed the dying drive-in circuit to make its American debut on cable TV.
