The embark on a series of stagecoach robberies, bank hold-ups and picking up loose change here and there.

Just another "B" western, except the outlaws are babes.

After the Dalton boys are killed by the law, one of the Dalton girls is forced to kill a lecherous mortician who tries to rape her. Being branded a murderess, the sisters follow in their brothers tracks and take up a life of crime. One of the sisters falls for a handsome gambler whom they rob and then develops second thoughts about a life of crime.

THE DALTON GIRLS is one of the last gasps of the true Hollywood "B" western. This film is no different from a zillion other such films except that the outlaws are female. The box on the Fang video edition describes the film as a "J.D. chick western", and thats how the female leads play their roles; like they just stepped out of some biker flick. Aside from having the outlaws being females, there something to be said about John Russell as the slightly aloof and philosophical gambler Gray. Its little unusual to have the films hero to be a man who, while not a criminal, isn't exactly squeaky clean either. John Russell was a handsome actor with a very good speaking voice, but was also often somewhat stiff. Here he puts his stiffness, good looks and good speaking voice to his advantage. Otherwise, THE DALTON GIRLS is just another B western. Its not a film that is any good, but nothing about it is done really bad enough to make to someone hate it or provide unintentional laughs.
