I watched this with eager anticipation as I had been led to believe that there could be some quite dramatic moments in this film as Jennifer Holt (Vivian AKA the Hawk) runs a gang of outlaws. While it is true that she is a cut above the rest of the cast, I'm afraid that the film doesn't involve her enough, and her final shoot-out scene could have been so much better.

Eddie Dean is the good guy and he sings some nice songs - in fact, the musical interludes are quite good and that was a surprise to me as I dreaded some cheesy nonsense. It actually works quite well. The storyline is fine and the overall experience is watchable despite June Carlson (Carole) not having much to do and lawyer Eddie Parker (Cochrane) caving in rather too easily and spilling the beans so that we can proceed to the final shoot-out. But I didn't expect any more as the film has to quickly reach it's conclusion. Another mention to Jennifer Holt - she seems wasted considering how she lights up the film on her every appearance, and more emotional involvement with her would have greatly improved this offering.
