Not as much fun as its title suggests, PISTOL PACKIN' MAMA is a musical starring Terry as the owner of a Nevada gambling den. Livingston arrives in town after being kicked out of New York by gang leader LaRue, and immediately breaks the bank and makes off with enough money to return to

New York and set up his own gambling place. When Terry learns of his cheating, she assumes a new identity, follows Livingston back to New York, and gets a job singing in his club. She cons Livingston into cutting cards for ownership of his club and she wins, but then LaRue and his mob crash the

doors in an attempt to take over. Luckily, Terry is as good with a gun as she is with a tune and she soon wipes out LaRue's gang, leaving her and Livingston to clinch at the end. Songs include the title tune and "I've Heard That Song Before," "Love Is a Corny Thing" (all sung by Terry), and "I'm

an Errand Boy for Rhythm" (sung by the King Cole Trio).
