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>

loved it
24 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have issues with watching old movies, particularly black and white films. The editing, the dialogue, the acting, the plot...etc. I have been trained by modern society too well, it sucks. And I feel bad about it, not enjoying old movies the way I should. Which brings me to the dalton girls. Loved it. It was ahead of its time in so many ways. The plot, the characters, even some of the dialogue. And the lead male was HOT, which is often not true in older movies and yes I am looking at you Humphrey Bogart and Fred Astaire. It was so fast paced compared to other movies at the time and fun and real. I only got annoyed once! So I am tired of hearing this "B-movie" attack on this movie. I am impressed. I wasn't even planning on watching this film. I just came home form drinking one night and found it on...and it takes a lot to grab my attention after i have been drinking. Cheers dalton ladies!
