Good Low Budget Western
5 July 2002 | by (Noth Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

In the 1950's, when Roger Corman began his career as a producer-director, he made four westerns. As of this writing, this is the only one of those westerns that never made it to a home video or a DVD release. I was able to see a print of the film from a private collection. The unique thing here is that the title character is the femme fatale, the one the citizens want to run out of town. The plot concerns how the various characters fight for control of that town. Richard Denning literally wanders into the middle of the fight after a stint in prison. Mike Connors, billed here as Touch Connors, makes an effective heavy. Cathy Downs makes a good impression here as an heroic good girl. She actually fistfights the title character at the climax of the film to get what she needs to save the Denning character. Overall, a very good low budget western from Corman and company.
