Storyline

After the Dalton brothers are killed off by lawmen, their female relatives take up where they left off, but armed with more dangerous weapons. The embark on a series of stagecoach robberies, bank hold-ups and picking up loose change here and there. The girls are Holly (Merry Anders,, the oldest and gang-leader; Rose Lisa Davis),, a cold-blooded killer; Columbine (Penny Edwards), who mostly wants out; and Marigold ('Sue George'), who mostly holds the horses. A gambler, W. T. "Illinois" Grey (John Russell), is on hand to bind Columbine's wounds. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Not Half-Bad If You're Not Expecting High Noon
6 September 2007 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Actually this is not a half-bad Western if you're not expecting much, and certainly the title doesn't promise much in the way of artistry. What this B-flick has going for it are some well- staged scenes on the prairie and a couple of tough-minded chick scenes, especially the robbery episodes. The acting is uneven, to say the least. Merry Anders is fine as Holly, the leader, as is Lisa Davis as Rose, the second toughie. However, poor Sue George as Marigold should have auditioned for Leave It to Beaver. Maybe you won't have as much trouble as I did telling these "flowers" apart, but they do look alike and it can get confusing. Judging from the title, you'd probably expect more titillation than there is-- after all, this is the 1950's. Nonetheless, there is a legitimate feminist undercurrent even if much is compromised in the end. All in all, this minor production from a couple of old pro's (director Le Borg and producer Schenck) remains a rather interesting artifact as well as a fairly viable piece of period entertainment.
