'''''Hot Lead and Cold Feet''''' is a 1978 Disney {{Western}} comedy starring Jim Dale. ''Slightly'' grittier and more cynical than some of Disney's other live action comedies, it was mildly successful, but changing times led to it being one of the last of Disney's live action comedy westerns (''Bullwhip Griffin'', ''Apple Dumpling Gang'', etc).

In this film, the wealthy and deranged old coot Jasper Bloodshy (Dale) fakes his own death and leaves a will naming his twin sons as heirs. The preacher, Eli (also Dale), is fine with the division of the estate, but his gunslinger brother Wild Billy (Dale, once again) is manipulated by sleazy Mayor Ragsdale (Darren [=McGavin=]) into issuing a challenge, with Eli's share at stake. To resolve the dispute, the Mayor pits the two brothers against each other in a series of obstacle courses. Billy is willing to try all kinds of dirty tricks on his brother, until Eli saves Billy's life at the risk of his own. This moves Billy to team up with his brother against the mayor's minions. (This ''is'' a Disney film, you know). In a subplot, the local town sheriff, Denver Kid (Don Knotts), keeps trying to duel Rattlesnake (Jack Elam) simply because Rattlesnake thinks Kid insulted his sister. HilarityEnsues.

!!This film contains examples of:

* AwesomeMcCoolName: Jasper Bloodshy, "Wild Billy" Bloodshy and Rattlesnake all qualify for this.
* CainAndAbel: Billy initially sees their relationship this way, Eli doesn't.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: TheTeetotaler Eli gets badly snockered on one canteen's worth of [[UnsuspectinglySoused "mountain spring water"]].
* {{Earworm}}: "May the Best Man Win," the [[TitleDrop title-dropping]] song that plays over the opening credits.
* EasilyForgiven: Billy, by Eli.
* FictionalCounterpart: An early draft of the script (see WhatCouldHaveBeen, below) had the Eli analogue involved with the Salvation Army. In the final film, his organization is not named but retains a lot of trappings of the 19th century Salvation Army (band-like uniforms, singing hymns on street corners with brass and drum accompaniment, etc).
* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Denver says this about Rattlesnake being present.
* MayorPain: Mayor Ragsdale.
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Justified with Eli, who was raised in England by his mother after she left Old Man Bloodshy.
* PolarOppositeTwins: The twin brothers-one seems to be channeling [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Yosemite Sam]] while the other is a religious pacifist apparently affiliated with the Salvation Army or a similar group. Jasper Bloodshy has elements of both his sons' personalities: Billy's amoral raucousness and Eli's sentimentality about family members he's never met.
* QuicksandSucks: One of Denver's attempts at dueling Rattlesnake ends with him sinking in a quicksand pit (while counting to 3 to start the duel, no less!) brought about by heavy rains.
* RealMenLoveJesus: Eli loves God with a passion and is willing to go through all kinds of danger for His sake. Eli's main interest in his inheritance is so that he can use it to help people through his religious group.
* {{Slapstick}}: A lot of the humor is this.
* TheJeeves: Jasper Bloodshy has a very long-suffering one.
* TitleDrop: A song that plays over the opening credits claims that the two brothers will be like "HotLeadAndColdFeet when they meet."
* TroublingUnchildhoodBehavior: played for laughs, as Eli's street-smart orphan sidekicks constantly worry about people taking advantage of him and at one point steal a gun so they can defend him against his brother and the mayor.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: Jim Dale plays all three Bloodshys.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally written in the early seventies as a low-budget western vehicle for AudieMurphy and his friend, character actor Michael Dante. They would have played the Eli and Wild Billy analogues, respectively, in this version, which did not have an UncannyFamilyResemblance angle, and may not have had the pacifist and the hellion as relatives. This version fell through due to Murphy's untimely death in a plane crash, and the script was sold to Disney.
