Trivia

Filmed at Spahn's Movie Ranch near Chatsworth, CA, in late 1968. The ranch was used for occasional filming of TV westerns like Bonanza (1959) and The Lone Ranger (1949), as well as for David O. Selznick's western Duel in the Sun (1946). However, with the decline of westerns in general, owner George Spahn decided to allow a group of misfit hippies to reside there temporarily in the spring of 1968 in exchange for minor upkeep of the ranch. This was shortly before filming of this movie took place. The group called themselves "The Family" and were led by Charles Manson and two of their members, Catherine Share and Bobby Beausoleil - who was later convicted of murdering a ranch hand employed by Spahn - appear in this film.

Cute girls, not much plot.
1 March 1999 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Budget? What budget? The producer probably gave the prop master a couple of bucks and sent him down to the local Western apparel shop for some cowboy outfits, and told him to pick up some leather bootstraps and chamois cloths for Indian garb on his way back. A couple of tepees, a house, some cute actresses, and they were ready to make a movie.

Don't watch this film for the story line or plot twists. Don't watch it for the stilted dialogue. Watch it for Marsha Jordan, who has a pretty good body even by today's standards, and some of the soft porn scenes. There's some topless female wrestling, a striptease around a campfire, and a few other examples of female exploitation. At one point Ms. Jordan even gets tied to a tree, stripped naked, and whipped in order to prove her love for her husband and to prove the innocence of a cowboy charged with rape (you'll have to see the movie to understand). This scene is actually pretty well done considering the budget and that it was made in 1969. They even included some fake blood for dramatic effect, and the hits are shown onscreen (really cheap movies show such things offscreen so that they don't have to pay for special effects).

The title refers to a type of black-powder gun, but it was obviously chosen for its double-meaning. Still, it's better than "Brand of Shame".
