A dazzling Maureen O’Hara plays Kate Maxwell, saloon proprietress, in 1870s Wyoming. A battle is brewing between established ranchers and the wave of homesteaders. Kate Maxwell has some “history” with a promoter named Jim Averell (William Bishop) who fans the discontent of the homesteaders. But Sheriff Stan Blaine (Alex Nicol) attracts Kate’s keen interest as he investigates a rustling scheme.
I was impressed by Maureen O’Hara’s athleticism! She rides horses with her flowing dresses and streaming red hair! She fires her Winchester rifle with cool aplomb. I immediately wanted to watch another Maureen O’Hara movie. I had forgotten how much Star Power she had! Are you a Maureen O’Hara fan? Which of her films do you recommend? GRADE: B+
