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.

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