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>

Dance Hall Singer and the Preacher
13 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Vermillion O'Toole needs a place to hide out after escaping from the law (that wanted her for something she hadn't done). So she accepts the offer of three little boys to stay with them while their father is gone logging (even though he's a preacher on Sundays). She doesn't know they are hoping she'll marry their father and save him from marrying a prissy town woman. It's a comedy so everything comes out all right in the end.

One very interesting note on this movie is that the preacher actually lives his life by Biblical principles, not condemning Vermillion but encouraging her subtly to follow the good he knows is in her heart. Sterling Hayden and the script portray him as a Christian who is neither a bigot or a milquetoast.
