Trivia

Bob Burns was known for a bizarre musical instrument that he invented and which he plays in this film. Basically a long tube with a cone on the end called a "bazooka". GIs in WW2 took the name for the rocket firing anti-tank weapon since it resembled the instrument. See more »

See It For The Costumes
9 May 2014 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

Seriously, the costuming in this film is over-the-top but inspired. It helps that it's in brilliant Technicolor.

But this film is plagued by a story that is uneven. And by overacting.

The story takes place in the Yukon and features Randolph Scott as a conman gone straight. Gypsy Rose Lee is the new featured performer in his saloon. Dinah Shore comes up short (acting and singing) as the featured songstress. She may be the only one who underacts.

You might be able to figure out who double-crosses who, but I'm guessing you will eventually give up because you don't care. Better to sit back and enjoy the fashion.
