The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again

"Terrorizing the west" takes on a whole new meaning when referring to the Apple Dumpling Gang. Unlike other quick-draw outlaws of infamy, the blundering butterfingers of partners Theodore (Don Knotts) and Amos (Tim Conway) represent their greatest menace to society. In this sequel, the duo attempts to go straight --but keeps running into crooked characters. Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Obviously, Theodore and Amos are not the hardened, sharpshooters they are assumed to be, but what other characters in the movie are not as they appear? How blind is Martha? How inexperienced is Private Reed? What inner secrets do we learn about Milly Gaskill, and Jim Ravencroft? How accurate can you be when you judge others just by what you see?
