Working in an Austin, Texas, beauty parlour in 1954, Nadine Hightower endeavours to retrieve some 'art studies' she injudiciously had taken. Her visit to the photographer leaves him dead and her in possession of highly valuable plans of a proposed new road. With both the police and the murderous villains after her she enlists the help of her (almost) ex-husband Vernon, the none too successful owner of the Bluebonnet Bar. Fortunately the thugs are as much no-hopers as the Hightowers. Written by

This energetic comedy is entertaining the moment the title appears on the screen. Set in a rural town a beautician witnesses a murder and then is expected of doing the killing. Now she must run from the killers and the cops. This movie is an instant classic. 10/10
