There is not much of a plot to this offbeat western by the prolific director Dwan (with over 400 pictures to his credit), and that which does exist is extremely hard to follow. The action takes place in the heat of the Civil War in a small town on the Arkansas-Missouri border, which

supposedly is not involved in the conflict. This proves to be a fallacy since Leslie is about to be hanged as a Confederate spy. She is accused largely because she is an easterner and is tough enough to run a saloon and even tote a gun. The real spy is her beau, Lund, who goes about his business

without being bothered by anyone. Also thrown into the mix are the head of a gang of outlaws and a town drunk who can't get over the loss of his beloved wife. An oddity in the male-dominated western genre is a scene in which two women, Totter and Leslie, face each other in a gun fight. A must-see

for any fan of oater legends.
