A western without being a western
4 April 2008 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

It takes place in Texas after the Civil War, but we can not really consider this little movie as a western. No many gunshots or fights of any kind. But it is an amusing feature about a widow whom nearly everyone suspects to be insane.

More comedy, oater, than action picture. Universal produced it, in color, with his usual stars such as Howard Duff, Mona Freeman, Gene Lockhart...

The scene in the court hall with the polecat is unforgettable. Very amusing.

In short, it's an unusual, weird little movie which remains to be shown more often.
