Decent and predictable....

"Wild Women" is a film shown originally as part of the "ABC Movie of the Week" series. I never saw it when it first aired but found it and many other "ABC Movie" installments on YouTube. They seem to have about half of the films that aired on ABC over these years.

Hugh O'Brian plays Killian, a guy who is trying to smuggle guns into Texas during the time of the Texas Revolution of 1835-1836. However, he cannot do this alone and needs help, so he goes to a local women's prison and gets the warden to parole a group of these 'ladies' to his care. Naturally, being a group of misfits, they have some hard times here and there but ultimately pull it all together...which is EXACTLY what you'd expect in such a film.

If you like this sort of plot, you'd love the later "ABC Movie", "The Daughters of Joshua Cabe" which also used this idea...and a bit better.

The acting is fine and I have no major complaints EXCEPT for the complete lack of historical accuracy. Like so many films about this time period, they show folks with repeating pistols...something that really weren't available in any number until the Civil War and post- Civil War period...decades later. So, you see a battle near the end where hundreds and hundreds of shots ring out...though nothing like this could have happened with just a couple dozen folks fighting.
