When the members of a caravan of pioneers find a daisy growing in the middle of the desert they decide to stop there and to build their town on this very spot. Houses soon spring up like mushrooms, immediately followed by a bank, a saloon, a prison, etc: Daisy Town is born. Unfortunately a city does not go without its bad boys and the peaceful place is soon turned into a lawless place. To restore law and order, a lawman is needed. Lucky Luke, the cowboy who shoots faster than his shadow, will be this man: all the villains had better watch out! Written by
Based on the series of comic books by Morris which first published in 1946, this 1971 animated feature follows an original plot, but incorporates many characters and elements from previously published albums. An adaptation of the movie itself was finally published as a Lucky Luke album in 1982. Further more, a live action version directed by and starring 'Terrence Hill (I)' was released theatrically in some European countries in 1991. This served as the pilot to a short lived live action TV series, which used Daisy Town as the backdrop for most of it's action. See more »
A group of pioneers are on their way out west, when they come across a
solitary daisy in the vast desert. The wagon train unloads and sets up
'Daisy Town,' named for the solitary flower. Within very little time,
the town has sprung up, and even quicker, crime has come to the little
town. All seems bent on recklessness, until one day, Lucky Luke rides
into town, on his horse Jolly Jumper. Every bad guy in town tries to
take a shot at Luke, but the man seems to always be 2 steps ahead, as
one implies, 'This kid can shoot faster than a shadow.' The mayor of
Daisy Town then recruits Luke as the new Sheriff. The law seems to once
again be upheld, square dances go off without a hitch, until word comes
that the fiendish Dalton Brothers are in the area. Led by the
diminutive Joe Dalton, the big-talking desperado and his brothers begin
to wage a battle against Luke's wits and the townspeople.
The film is based on a French comic-book, so the style is pretty close,
though the story's humor at times doesn't quite translate over into
English that well. some interesting visual gags abound, such as the
building of the town, as building's spring up like flowers, and town
signs come with paint and lettering included. Luke also defies logic
several times. There is a nicely paced sequence at the end where Luke
and the Dalton's have a showdown, and it delves into all the western
clichés: growing shadows, closed windows, deserted streets,etc.
A nice little film ,though probably won't be figured out by the mass
American audience. After this, the follow-up 'The Ballad of the Dalton
Gang' was released, though with a different voice-dub cast.
