Major Patten wins the hand of the beautiful daughter of Don Pedro and all the lands she inherits. Unfortunately, she suffers from a family curse which makes her amorously insatiable. A curse she passes on to their equally beautiful daughter. Meanwhile, the large stash of guns which Patten also inherits makes him the target of covetous Indians and the local bandit chief.
This is a comedy western shot in Spain and produced by the same company who made both films featuring The Beatles. Amazingly, it was originally conceived as the next vehicle for the Fab Four but was eventually rejected.
