Storyline

Impressed by his medical skill, a pretty female outlaw forces a young doctor at gunpoint to travel to a town run by women, where the only males who can enter either work in or patronize the local, and crooked, gambling hall. The town's independence from men is threatened by an gang of notorious outlaws and the election of a new marshal - an election in which the women, outlaws or not, cannot participate.

These women couldn't get arrested if they tried
9 November 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Barely feasible story about outlaws robbing a bank shipment is stretched past the point of interest by film's end. Some interest may be generated, though, by the film's unusual setting -- a frontier town owned and governed by women. Their leader (Windsor) refuses to co-operate with the outlaws, leading the women to consider robbing the shipment to protect their investment.

The audience I saw it with (here in Oakland, CA, where Will "The Thrill" Viharo is one of the only guys in the world who will show movies like this to a live audience) reacted positively to Windsor and her butch right-hand lady (Hart), but mostly with boredom towards the tired story, stilted dialogue, and substandard directing and photography (in Cinecolor, which on this rapidly disintegrating print looks like 1920s 2-strip).

Some points of interest, but nothing exceptional. Pales in comparison to the similarly themed "Johnny Guitar" (which was made by somewhat more ambitious filmmakers).
