The Lady's A Hawk
17 October 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

A band of outlaws led by a mysterious villain known only as The Hawk robs and kills at will, terrorizing the countryside. What nobody knows is that the Hawk is actually a young woman named Vivian, the beautiful niece of a wealthy local rancher.

The Hawk is the most vicious cold-blooded woman ever to come out of a Saturday matinée western as she tries to murder her own cousin for control of her now late uncle's spread. Unlike other female villains there's absolutely nothing good about this woman!

The Hawk Of Powder River is probably Eddie Dean's best film. Too bad for him that this is one of the few Saturday matinée B-western I've ever seen where the villain is infinitely more interesting than the hero!

Eddie and his pals are always good for a few songs.
