The quiet man
6 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Very atypical western,verging on slapstick farce ,with the longest slaps and kisses scene ever filmed .

She's the boss:Yvonne De Carlo runs the saloon and she reigns over men till a stranger comes .So begins an offbeat story ,part western ,with plenty of chases,part musical (even the daughter pulls her little tune ) ,part comedy .There are lots of domestic quarrels on an eventful wedding night,and it seems that the husband has the upper hand every time.An husband who has also got a straight bland fiancée who's got a "true" job (she's a teacher;says auntie:there are two jobs for a woman : one is respectable ,my niece's ,and one is scandalous ,yours!) These two ladies want the man to divorce Lorena .To make the matter worse,Lorena has also a suitor,a really jealous guy.

The movie is so-so but Miss De Carlo was a beauty and had plenty of go.
