Bette Davis joins the wagon train with a troupe of showgirls
22 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wagon Master Seth Adams (Ward Bond) accepts a group of young ladies under the care of their "teacher" Bette Davis. She tells Seth that she is taking them west to start a girls' finishing school. They are actually entertainers or dancers and she is planning to start a first class saloon or entertainment palace. This fact isn't learned until they are well under way on the trip. Major Adams has to deal with the wives of the men on the wagon train, who want the attention grabbing young ladies sent away. Another actor, calling himself a Count and played by Robert Strauss (Stalag 17), is brought into camp by Indians saying he tried to steal from them including a woman. Bette Davis hires him to drive their wagon. One of the show girls falls in love with the son of one of the women of the wagon train. Just when Major Adams thinks things can't get more nasty, Spotten Fever hits the train. With so many sick and in danger of death, it is Bette Davis and her girls who pitch in and nurse the ill. Nothing more can be said without revealing the ending, however it can be said that Bette Davis was at her usual best.
