Saw this movie many years ago and got interested when Jaclyn Smith became popular, so popular in fact, that the producers decided to re-titled the movie as "Bootlegger's Angel," to capitalized Smith's later stardom.
There's nothing extra special about the film but it's highly entertaining with excellent performances from all the cast. Smith is a revelation -- she's really born to play Charlie's angel and boy, oh, boy, she can hold a gun with poise and style!
