Lust And Greed In The West!
30 November 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Cheyenne finds that he has to keep a steady nerve to fend off the amorous advances of a elderly rancher's younger wife.

Sheila Dembro played by Beverley Michaels throws herself at our hero after she tends his wounds following a beating by a crooked cattle baron's thugs. Sheila's sexual side is obviously not fulfilled and her desire to entrap Cheyenne pushes her to commit the ultimate sin...MURDER!!

If this is not enough for Bodie to contend with, her 17 year old stepdaughter also has designs on him, but not to the extent of her step-mom!

Yet,while all this is going on, Cheyenne still finds time to have a shoot-out with a hired gun and kick-start the local ranchers into forming an alliance to take on the dastardly cattle baron Martin Storm, played with aplomb by veteran actor Barton MacLane.

For me, Beverley Michaels steals the honours with her portrayal of the crazed wife with madness and lust in her eyes!! Beverley's movie career seemed to fold soon after and she disappeared into obscurity, I wonder whatever happened to her?
