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>

So-so lighthearted movie, if you like broad comedy
9 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Have seen the movie on video only once and doubt I'd want to see it again. It's just too painfully farcical at times for my liking. As someone says, those freaky brothers are a bit much to see, that's why I wouldn't want to endure the movie again.

Bette Grable is always beautiful, no faulting there.

I rather felt Rudy Vallee got some rough treatment in this movie and didn't have not enough opportunity to shine with his usual suavity as in other films.

Glad I saw it once but that's about it. I really prefer any other Betty G. movies than this one, sorry to say. Most are super.
