Dirty Dingus Magee is a comic 1970 anti-western film starring Frank Sinatra as the title outlaw and George Kennedy as a sheriff out to capture him. The movie was based on the novel The Ballad of Dingus Magee by David Markson and the screenplay was partly written by Catch-22 author Joseph Heller.



Dingus Magee (Sinatra) is an outlaw in the old west who undertakes a series of comic adventures with the local sheriff (Kennedy) in pursuit.


Dirty Dingus Magee was filmed under the title Sheriff and the Dirty Scrubber, but the title was changed before release due to legal reasons.[citation needed]

Although the title role was written for a 19 year-old, when Sinatra (then 54) became interested, the character was re-written to be a middle-aged man. Dirty Dingus Magee continued a trend of comic westerns featuring big-name stars.
