The long sequence on the plain with the fist fight, hot air balloon, etc. is wonderfully executed slapstick. Great cast as well. I haven't seen the "director's cut" in B&W, but the sepia tones of the theatrical version capture the period quite well. The D.W. Griffith cameo is elegant. That this was followed by the magnificent "Saint Jack" says a lot for Bogdanovich's range.
