The Sheriff Of Fractured Jaw : Storyline 

Jonathan Tibbs (Kenneth More) is trying to sell English sporting shotguns in the wild west. He happens upon a lawless town which is the battleground between two rival gangs of cowboys. The local saloon is owned by Kate (Jayne Mansfield). Tibbs is the innocent abroad and, when mistaken for a hired gun, he is challenged to a drinking duel by a local gunslinger. In the ensuing chaos, the gunslinger is killed, and Tibbs gains a reputation as an ace ‘quickdraw’. Tibbs immediately is made the sheriff by the local mayor (who has buried many predecessors in the role) and sets about bringing peace to the town. Kate falls in love with this unusual English gentleman, and they plan a life back in England – just as life gets complicated. Tibbs is accosted by local injuns whilst trying to ascertain the details of the war between the cowboy gangs. Tibbs’s English charm saves the day, and he is honoured with membership of the tribe. Meanwhile both cowboy gangs have decided that Tibbs is working for the other side and determine to remove him from the town – permanently. Just as Tibbs and Kate are pinned down by the outlaws in a seemingly hopeless position, Tibbs’ tribe comes to the rescue. The happy couple is married in the chapel with the tribal chief giving the bride away.

Excellent Western Spoof

I do not get the haters towards The Sheriff Of Fractured Jaw. It is not Shane, The Searchers or The Big Country, it is a western spoof ( like Paleface, Son of Paleface and Ruggles Of Ted Gap). One point that those who do not like the movie believe is there is no chemistry between British Arms Merchant ( Kenneth More), who becomes Sheriff ( despite having no idea how to use a gun) and Saloon owner/entertainer Kate (Jayne Mansfield).,There is a lot of chemistry between them. From More’s perspective ( and mine), just look at Jayne Mansfield. From Kste’s perspective he is a gentleman. He knows how to act, is well mannered, well dressed and well spoken. Kate herself notes she would love to get away from Fractured Jaw and be around “His ( More’s) kind of people.” There is also the kissing scene, after she unsuccessfully tries to get him to learn to shoot. Why? he is distracted by her looks, The one thing I did not like was Mansfield and More Superimposed on a blue screen against a western setting ( Far too obvious there is a blue screen). Finally, If you like westerns and ( or) want to see what Jayne Mansfield looks like, watch this movie. It is important to note her films are rarely shown. Sheriff Of Fractured Jaw and The Girl Can’t Help It are the most often screened, and even Fractured Jaw has only 19 posts, about it, which should tell you something. So if you get a chance to see it, do not miss this excellent western spoof.
