40 years ago today, Walt Disney releases Hot Lead and Cold Feet into US cinemas

Hot Lead and Cold Feet (1978)

Hot Lead and Cold Feet (1978) is an American comedy-western film produced by Walt Disney Productions and starring Jim Dale, Karen Valentine, Don Knotts, Jack Elam and Darren McGavin.

It was released on a double bill with The Madcap Adventures of Mr. Toad, a retitled-reissue of the 1949 Disney animated featurette The Wind in the Willows (from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad).

This saga of the old west involves twin brothers who compete for possession of a rickety cow town founded by their father while a crooked Mayor tries to put an end to the competitors so he can inherit the town himself.
