Barbara Hale steals the show
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.
