Fantastic artistry; very funny and visually thrilling
18 April 2005 | by woleary717See all my reviews

Wow, what a movie ! The very beautiful Jane Russell, either as a saloon girl/owner or cross-dressing female outlaw, looks absolutely luscious & stunning. Jane teaming up with my childhood idol , Roy Rogers ,does a great chemistry relationship. Jane as the Outlaw, looks very sensual in her cowboy outfit. Her men's clothes that she wears can not hid her gender.Roy has been known for his fancy " Nudie Cohn " cowboy duds. Bob Hope swipes Roys outfit and dons it in order to fool " Trigger " for an attempted escape that fails. Jane as " Mike " is obviously interested in sexy cowboy clothes, her own outfit attests to that statement.Frank Tashlin, the director, should of had Jane "Mike " strip Roy of his fancy cowboy duds and donned her new conquest outfit herself.Jane had the opportunity to do this after she pistol-whips him from behind and knocks Roy out cold. She would have looked more erotic prancing around in " The King of The Cowboy's clothes " and sitting mounted on " Trigger " ! She is the sexiest cowgirl ever !
