Trivia

The Little P. Ranch was built specifically for this film, but it remained standing after filming was completed and would go on to appear in the following movies: '¡Viva la muerte... tua! (1971)', 'La banda J. & S. - Cronaca criminale del Far West (1972)', 'Il mio nome è Shangai Joe (1973)', 'Uno, dos, tres... dispara otra vez (1973)', 'The Spikes Gang (1974)' and 'Il bianco il giallo il nero (1975)'. The ranch burned down in an unknown year, leaving only the chimney standing. It remains so as of January 2017. See more »

Terrific Entertainment
15 September 2001 | by KakuekeSee all my reviews

Two sexy superstar actresses in a cowgirl/cowboy western, with the erotic overtones an Italian film will add. Brigitte Bardot is the train robber, accompanied by her gang of attractive women in this female-dominated movie. Set in a "French" western city in the U.S. Combined with the sexiness is a very humorous, entertaining storyline about rivalry for an oil ranch, as the sexual tension between the two leading actresses (who are rivals) and a goofy sheriff is complemented and eventually superseded by the tension between Brigitte's gang of lovelies and Claudia's supporting brothers (which eventually certainly is not tension). A fabulous must-see, with a wonderful catfight, and women should enjoy it as much as men.
