• This was an enjoyable movie, but I expected more from a 1945

    western with Robert Mitchum. The theme (a women dressed as a

    boy) has been handled better, both before & after this movie. Even

    a lower budget Cisco Kid movie with Gilbert Roland did a better

    job. What makes this movie enjoyable is the performance of

    Barbara Hale. I didn't know she had it in her, but here she's cute,

    funny, & a good actress. I'd go so far as to say that she stole the

    show from Robert Mitchum, which is a very difficult feat to

    accomplish. I rate it 5/10; it would have been lower without Hale's

    excellent performance.
