Storyline

In 1865 New Orleans, sea captain Truscott goes to the notorious Scarlet Angel saloon, where he meets rapacious Roxy McClanahan, as rough and tough as he is. Despite his best efforts, Roxy manages to make off with Truscott's bankroll, and flees with war widow Linda Caldwell. Luck favors Roxy with a chance to slip into Linda's identity, and luckier still, Linda proves to have had wealthy in-laws in San Francisco, who are happy to give their new relation a chance to become a "lady." But inevitably, Truscott re-appears... Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Great adventure movie
4 April 2016 | by (Barcelona) – See all my reviews

Roxy McClanahan (Yvonne de Carlo) works as a saloon girl making men drink to steal them afterwards. One day she meets Frank Truscott, alias captain Panama (Rock Hudson) and after stealing him, she runs away with his money and the baby of a Linda Caldwell, a war widow she befriends and who tells her about his husband's family. She pretends to be Linda Caldwell and enter this family to began the wealthy life she has always desired. But unexpectedly capt. Panama appears and things do not happen as she figured out. This is an excellent adventure movie full of action, colorful, with beautiful costumes and set designs and a well written script. All the actors give wonderful performances, De Carlo and Hudson match perfectly and the story itself is interesting and flows by. Cast includes Richard Denning as Malcom Bradley and Amanda Blake as his sister Susan. A must for classical adventure fans and an entertaining movie to watch. It's a pity they don't do it like this anymore.
