Notorious stagecoach robber Rhiannon is unintentionally appointed as deputy when he saves the sheriff's life and must wear two hats between his new job that he enjoys and his old occupation that he misses.
In Chicago, Red catches the crook Bull and his two young accomplices. Hoping to reform the boys, he brings them back to the ranch. But upon returning he finds that part of the ranch has been burned and all the hands are quitting.
Estelita pretends to be Manuela, leading to lots of mayhem.
Sisters Estelita and Manuela are to go away to college, but Manuela wants to elope! Estelita agrees to cover for her by pretending they are identical twins! What follows is a comedy of errors, with a happy ending.
For its time, this was a clean and entertaining film. Since I watched it at that time, the fact that I remember it is telling. In today's PC climate, probably the spanking scene would have to go!
The handbag scene also stayed in my mind's eye. Estelita has a handbag with a curvy "E" on it. To turn herself into Manuela, she just rotates the initial through ninety degrees to become an "M".
The actress Estelita must have been famous, as in one scene, where she sings, there is a poster outside describing her as "The Toast of Pan-Am". Maybe they sold tickets for that scene to finance the film!
