Fast-paced, funny, snappy Musical Western with great songs!
A pleasant, diverting, fast-paced, unpretentious musical Western. Shown frequently on commercial TV in the late '50s and '60s, it seems to have disappeared.
Will someone at Columbia Pictures please stop promoting their 2001 mega-budget stinkers and instead preserve and re-release their past glorious unsung treasures (such as "Go West, Young Lady") and make them available on cable-TV and videotape.
This "B"-unit film is an unalloyed delight. A precursor of such later films as "Calamity Jane" & "7 Brides for 7 Brothers". Penny Singleton is adorably ditzy as the heroine, Glenn Ford honed his comic skills as "the tenderfoot" and sparkling Ann Miller as the tart-tongued saloon-singer steals the show. The Sammy Cahn score is a treat, and Annie's tip-tapping with Allen Jenkins singing "I Wish That I could Be a Singing Cowboy" is one of the many highlights of this unique lark of a film.
Good, rousing, old-fashioned fun--packed into a tight 70 minutes!
