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......
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.
