More about vamping than the 'ol west.
If you are looking for a western, you might just want to keep looking. While the film is set in the west, it's got little to do with cowboys or anything else you'd expect. Instead, it's about a troupe of performers from back east who are having difficulties putting on a show because of a couple grouchy locals. So how do they deal with them? Nice-guy Clay (Kenneth Harland) suggests they use allegations of sexual misconduct or vamping to get what they want! Now that's a great object lesson for the kiddie! In addition to this super-weird plot and all the vamping, there is a local gang who wants to see the show put on--because they plan on stealing the box office receipts! All in all a very strange concoction and an odd old fashioned film to boot.
In addition to being weird, the film itself is rather dull. It's not terrible but approaches this due to some very indifferent acting and a couple musical numbers that are ancient when seen today.
