Storyline

Violet Barton, a femme-fatale goal-setter, fascinates men and readily returns their affection to obtain the wealth she desires, even to the point of bigamy. She has an affair with gambler Gregg Delaney but marries his best friend, Johnny Hale, when she discovers Hale is the richest man in Texas. This loses her the respect of her sister, Janet, who loves Hale, and Delaney, who loves Violet. Meanwhile, town sheriff Bill Howard is working hard to get Delaney to confess to a murder. Delaney manges to steer clear of the sheriff until Violet kills her lawful husband, Henry Vaal, and the sheriff is soon pursuing both Violet and Delaney into the desert.

delirious, over the top western tale of l'amour fou
2 February 2008 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

This delirious, over the top western tale of l'amour fou features the always affable John Carroll as the jaded hero and Vera Ralston as a greedy, sociopathic woman of unsavory character who will stop at nothing, including murder, to achieve her desires. Ms. Ralston is not quite up to carrying the film, in a role which was perhaps more suited to the likes of Hedy Lamar or Marlene Deitrich. It's a sort of "Madame Bovary-Scarlett O'Hara goes to Texas" tale, with elements of noir. Besides Carroll (who actually gets to sing the title song) and a good performance by Walter Brennan as a self-righteous sheriff prone to prejudgments, there is little to entertain here other than the gay sub-context of Carroll's unshakable and undying affection for Ching.
