Storyline

Saloon-bar singer Freddie gets very angry whenever boyfriend Blackie seems to be playing around. She always packs a six-shooter, so this is bad news for anything that happens to be in the way. As this is usually the local judge's rear-end, Freddie and friend Conchita are soon hiding out teaching school in the middle of nowhere. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

yes demented, yes vulgar
16 February 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

About 55 years ahead of its time and as rude and silly as if it were made today. It does have a very modern feel about it and shows really how staged other 40s films were. Occasionally when loose behavior and honest rudeness was allowed, or got through or whatever, the films looks and sounds like 2006 not 1949. Just like this one. It very funny and like an 80's Zucker Bros western..or as someone else said here, very Coen Bros....anyway, as I was saying, modern, vulgar and silly. Later, in the late 50s similar cartoony western comedies like LI'L ABNER with censorship busting names (eg: Appollonia Von Climax) and characters appeared (Julie Newmar stepping from a rocket clad in almost nothing) and of course all of BLAZING SADDLES in the 70s. We are in that territory, folks.
