Storyline

Dr. Bruce Merritt is enticed to Bitter Water by 'Doc' Medley, a phony poker swindler, who persuades Merritt to pay him $250 for the use of his 'medical practice.' Doc's daughter Angela vows to pay back Merritt's money. She gambles and loses to her ex-lover Slinger. They fight when she discovers the deck is marked.

this is one fine lady
17 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As Jim Nabors would put it --- surprise, surprise. This is part of one of those packages with umpteen westerns, most, but not all, which can be labeled as crap.

"Buckskin Lady" is a rare exception - a low budget movie with high class credits. The twist-turn plot is excellent, as are the settings, although the little town is sparse even for its day. That is a very minor gripe.

The acting is several notches above satisfactory. Overly handsome Richard Denning, in an unfamiliar part, hits the spot. Gerald Mohr, always a top villain is very good, although his expressions and voice are the poor man's Bogie. Henry Hull as a d.d. - not a dentist, but a drunk doc - and Hank Worden as a not too bright character are right on.

Patricia Medina always kept busy. She is one of those black-haired beauties that graced many a pic. Think Faith Domergue, etc. (In one scene Medina sported a shiny chin). She dominates every scene.

The almost hot love scenes are unusual for a western in those days. They are well done as are the fight scenes and the stand-offs between Denning and Mohr.

If you can get your paws on this, do so. You won't be sorry. Have I ever lied to you?
