Despite the heavy use of Don Knotts in the promotional materials, he actually has a fairly minor role. Hot Lead and Cold Feet deals with the crazy founder of an Old West town. He’s arranged a contest between his two sons after faking his death (all three roles are played by Jim Dale) to see who will inherit the old man’s fortune.
Editorial review of Hot Lead and Cold Feet courtesy of Amazon.com
A two-gun terror and his terrified twin brother (both played by Jim Dale) turn an old cowtown upside down. A blazing, rip-roaring, riotous saga of brotherly competition in a winner-take-all battle for an inheritance. Tony award winner Jim Dale stars in a triple-header of a role, pulling all the stops out as he plays three different people: Old Jasper Bloodshy and his two sons. Veteran comedic actors Don Knotts and Jack Elam show up for their own turns in this great Walt Disney family film.
