Cowgirl babe gets her revenge
20 August 2003 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

Ok it's not JOHNNY GUITAR (1954), but so what? I like it, anyway.

An Annie Oakley-type trick-shot artist named Kate Masters (Peggy Castle) comes into town to put on a show at the local saloon. She also let's a couple of fresh rednecks know that she's not about to be pushed around by pulling a gun on them. A local drifter Dan Corbin (William Tallman) isn't too impressed with what's happening and he shoots up a poster of Master's show.

But no matter. The real reason Master's is in town is she's looking for the ones who killed her father and burned down their farm when she was a little girl. She knows who did it and she reluctantly enlists the help of Corbin, who it turns out is a federal marshal who's been after the same people Masters been after, for a long time now. It's a local family, the Ivers, who aren't too friendly with their neighbors and have been suspected of cattle rustling.

The ending quick-draw in the saloon between Ben Ivers (Earle Lyon) and Master's is a real hoot! She's pretty quick, although not quick enough not to get wounded in the draw. Ben in turn gets it with a rifle from his kid sister Jenny Ivers (Barbara Turner) who was angry at him for abusing her and shooting her lamb. Good thing she did him in, too. He was a real scumbag.

Also notable for having my favorite 50s B movie scream queen Marie Windsor as the local saloon gal who has a big mouth and gets punished (permanently) for it. Her part in this film raises it up a couple of notches for me. I always enjoy seeing her up there on the silver screen, no matter how lousy the film is.

Even though this was made by a little B movie outfit AFRC, it has no more of a cheap look than many of those oaters Republic, PRC or even bigger studios like RKO & Columbia put out in the late 40s, early 50s.

6 out of 10 for keeping me enthused.
