Steve Dailey is in the Abilene, Kansas jail waiting to be hanged when Judge Carr brings Cheyenne O'Malley into his cell and says that Dailey can go free if he marries the girl, without knowing her name, because she must have a husband to claim an estate. Dailey agrees and gets a letter of pardon from the Judge, who plans to kill him, but Dailey, with the help of his friend, Podo, escapes the jail and the Judge's hired killer, "Slow" Karp. He sets out to find his new bride but is captured and taken to the mansion of John Parnell. The latter tells Dailey that Cheyenne is actually a half-breed who runs a fur-trading company and needed a husband because of provisions in her father's will. Parnell is also a fur-trader but he wants Dailey to take over her business so they can work together. Dailey agrees, trails the wagon train and takes over but not before Cheyenne bull-whips him. Meanwhile, Karp has been hired by Judge Carr to kill Dailey and hired by Parnell to keep him alive. He plays ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Goofs

During the exterior shot of the judge opening the front door of the Sheriff's office and entering, followed by Julia and Pine Hawk, we see that behind the door is a corridor with a flight of stairs on the left leading upward. In the next interior shot, we see them now entering the Sheriff's office through the front door, but that it is one room, with no sign of any flight of stairs, let alone a corridor. See more »

The Taming of the Shrew in the Wild b-movie West......
30 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

With some noteable exceptions ,the west of the western movies tended to be peopled by brave men and wimpy women who simply cowered in the background as the men shot at each other. This was the way of it. This film featured a strong, independent woman, who by virtue of a bullwhip and a large faithful Indian bodyguard is on her way to becoming strong independent and rich. So what does this crumby film do ? It humiliates her, is what, it puts her in her place, until at the end she is in love with the supposed hero, as grinning and cocky a buffoon as ever rode the trail, and happy to be in his charge as well as his arms. So it is all a waste of time, a convoluted plot, standard production values, two colourless leads and lousy sexual politics. Its one saving grace is the large role played by the weasel-faced but strong JAMES GRIFFITH whose playing raised the standard of many a b-movie. See his wonderful portrayal of Doc Holliday in "Masterson of Texas" to recognise what a wasted talent he was.
