This was Grand National's attempt to bring a singing cowgirl to the forefront of B westerns in one of only a handful of film series to feature a woman in the principal role. Page plays the daughter of a man cheated out of $5,000. She steals back the money but is branded an outlaw. Page

enters a horse race and wins, exposing Girard as the true bad guy. Frome plays an undercover G-man and is the love interest as well. The idea of putting a woman in the lead for a B western is interesting but unfortunately does not work. Page can do little more than ride and toss a lariat in

addition to her vocalizing, and cannot overcome the conventional script and direction, which are geared to the typical male hero. The result is a poorly made western that plays as high camp. Still it is worth a look for what it attempted to do.
