A Talent for Loving is a 1969 British-American comedy Western film directed by Richard Quine and starring Richard Widmark, Chaim Topol, and Cesar Romero. It is based on the 1961 parodic Western novel A Talent for Loving, or The Great Cowboy Race by Richard Condon, who also wrote the screenplay. The home video version of the film (Simitar Entertainment) is re-titled "Gun Crazy" and has been edited to 95 minutes.[1]

In December 1965, Walter Shenson offered "A Talent for Loving" to Brian Epstein as a film vehicle for The Beatles and it was rejected unanimously.[citation needed]

Premise[edit]
