Storyline

In 1845, trader Oliver Hale and his new wife are returning from New York to California. In a New Orleans music hall they meet and befriend an entertainer who uses the stage name of Florinda Grove. The dance hall singer is actually on the run from the New York police since she's wanted for a murder she claims to be innocent of. The Hales believe her story and help her escape the city under the guise of a widow bound for St. Louis on a riverboat. The newlyweds themselves reach New Mexico where they plan to join a wagon train bound for California. In Santa Fe, the Hales bump into entertainer Florinda again. While Oliver Hale is away on a short business trip, a messenger from his brother Charles Hale arrives in town, bringing a special letter from Charles. In the letter, Charles explains that Carmelita Velasco, the daughter of a wealthy landowner, claims to be pregnant with Oliver's child and that she and her family expect Oliver to do the right honorable thing and marry her. But, alas, ... Written by nufs68

Jubilee Trail
27 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

TCM is going crazy. First, 'Beat the Devil,' worst Bogart film ever made. When I get to Heaven and meet Bogie, I will not bring this title up for fear he'll send me to hell.

Next, they air 'Jubilee Trail,' not a western; rather a bad soap opera(was there ever a good one)? I wrote TCM about their frequent repeats, concentrating too much on 'stars,' and failure to air 'cult' films, black (dark) comedies and sexy foreign movies, with stars such as Judy Geeson ('....round the Mulberry Bush), Brigitte Bardot (anything), Nicole Aubrey (Seven Deadly Sins - which I have on DVD). Also, what about 'Montenegro,' best dark comedy I have ever seen.

If TCM airs movies uncut, let's see some sex and nudity, not the American version of foreign films.

As for 'Jubilee Trail,' thumbs w-a-a-a-a-a-y DOWN!
