Crime doesn't stand a chance.
4 December 2004 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

This comedy/western features Judy Canova as a spunky and a bit ditzy storekeeper who wants to rid the crime element from Kirk County. She tries to sing her way into the heart of the new Sheriff Dan Fraser(John Russell)who chases the bad guys in his new Ford sedan. Bull McCready(Grant Withers)runs the gambling hall; but Curt Walker(Roy Bancroft)is the bad guy that needs to be put behind bars. Judy is jokingly promised a Deputy's badge if she captures Walker. This may also get Sheriff Fraser's affections.

Judy rigs the front door of her store with a bucket of water, sledge hammer and a shotgun; but Walker enters through a window and is finally subdued by the spunky cowgirl with the half-cocked hat. Walker escapes jail, but is captured again as Judy leads the town's womenfolk in making a wreck of the gambling hall. Also in the cast are: Emmett Lynn, Fuzzy Knight, Houseley Stevenson and Frank Ferguson.

Canova's off key singing is tolerable with her best tune being "Have You Ever Been Lonely?". I'm still trying to figure out the film's title OKLAHOMA ANNIE.
