Audrey Totter is very sexy in her leather cowboy pants and boots
3 April 2002 | by (Tecumseh, Mi.,U.S.A) – See all my reviews

The movie is unusual because the ladies are the powerful ones in this movie. Audrie Totter is the cowgirl Emma Peel Because of her sexy leather pants and riding boots. Audrey is also the opposite of Emma because of her evil disposition. Warren O'Leary.
