The Focus is on Seductive Strong Women in this Steamy Fifties Western
Distinguished by its overt, out in the open, relationships between Men and Women circa 1885 in the Old West. It is that Story flirtation that makes this one a bit different than most of the Westerns of the 1950's.
Behind the Women taming the wild Men of the Old West is a gang of bank robbers led by Rory Calhoun with John McEntire, and Jay Silverheels. They encounter Walter Brennan and his coming of age Daughter in tow and from the very first scenes this one sets itself up as a steamy, sexy Western.
"Didn't anyone tell you not to scratch yourself in front of other people? Dad Brennan asks the curvaceous and cute "Lolly" (Colleen Miller) as she awakens.
She is doused with water as Her blouse clings and the camera lingers from below on Her upper half.
You'd better sew up that dress," He tells the oblivious Gal after a roll around with Calhoun. And there's more.
She is Flirtatious with a Candy Cane and a Bottle of Sarsaparilla.
She goes out in a nighttime rainstorm in Her bed clothes and meets soaking wet with Calhoun in the barn.
There is dialog, once the gang gets to town about Men being hogtied by Women and Calhoun's ex-Lover is now His former Friend's Wife and She breaks up a fistfight by literally pulling a buggy whip on both of them.
This kind of Adults at play stuff was not available on The Tube and by 1954 it was obvious Movies had to offer something a bit different to get Folks off the couch.
The good Cast, color Photography, and the sexual stuff make this one stand out as an above average Entry in the crowded field of the Western Movies of that Decade.
