      StephenPaul C LOL, the funniest 01 hour: and 11 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/05/23 Full Review Audience Member The town of Headstone is being terrorized by the bandit Killer Pete and his gang. He has repeatedly robbed them and killed ever sheriff they have had. Enter a young Glenn Ford as the new sheriff sent to town by the state marshals. He hangs out and romances Penny Singleton, the tomboy niece of the town saloon owner who was sent to town for vague reasons. This amiable semi-musical comedy western should really be watched for two reasons. The saloon's band is Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys and any excuse to see them play is worth taking. Also, there's a crazily intense cat-fight between Singleton and Ann Miller that briefly transports you into another film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Minor western comedy is still a pleasant view. Much more of a showcase for Penny Singleton than a just starting out Glenn Ford but all three leads are pert. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member just ok kinda lame western.
