Synopsis An off-kilter but intriguingly sensational western about a lady saloon-keeper who learns her wealth and power can't buy everything as a town full of jealous monsters try to overrun her property. Women wear the pants (and guns) in this pre-feminist exercise in gender neutrality.Filmed in Trucolor by Consolidated. The Republic Home Video release VHS#2127 is part of the company's Martin Scorsese Presents series. It features a restored print, a reproduction of the poster art, the original theatrical trailer, and an introduction by Scorsese. Copyright 1954, 1994 Republic Entertainment Inc....An anguished Western... -- Rating: ARay produces magic in the most unexpected and unlikely places.[I]t uses colour in wild, expressionistic fashion, and it boasts a memorable final-reel showdown between the two female protagonists.Ranked #14 in Uncut's Best DVDs Of 2005 -- Ray's film harbours a bold critique of the US's then-raging anti-Communist witchhunts.The strangest western ever made in Hollywood, a screaming opera of Freudian signs, a camp genre nova of colour-codings, and epic battle for gender supremacy played out in a dream landscape of cowboys and outlaws and sexually maddened frontier women...
