Storyline

Saloon entertainer Vermilion O'Toole and her former partner in crime Newt Cole escape from a train ride to prison and hide out in logging town Timberline. Meanwhile, the three 'cute' sons of widower Will Hall come to town in search of a wife for their dad, and pick our heroine. Vermilion needs to lay low to escape the marshal, so she accepts the boys' offer to visit pioneer community Pine Grove. Once there, she annoys local Mrs. Grundys but eventually starts to fit in. But what is that blackhearted villain Newt Cole up to? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Lyrical poem to the American west
14 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ann Sheridan plays Vermilion O'Toole ,a saloon singer who seeks to evade the law by taking refuge in a remote lumber community where she develops a fondness for widower Will Hall who in addition to being a lumberjack doubles as the local preacher.

She sees no reason why she should not make him a good wife and be a fine mother to his 3 boys -a sentiment they endorse The community is outraged but she is nothing if not determined and sets out to stake her claim on Hall .This involves fighting a bear ,getting rid of an old lover and turning out to be an indefatigable fundraiser for the construction of a new church .Shot in lustrous Tecnicolor by Russel Metty and directed with deftness and lyricism by Douglas Sirk, this is a tad syrupy now and again but is also a warm ,affectionate and tender evocation of the spirit of the American West
