Ain't Women Peculiar?
Unfortunately the only copy of this cowboy adventure isn't in the best shape, but what a story! First off, my favorite cowboy bad-boy is in this adventure . . . the huggable outlaw Charles King . . . No matter how tough he talks, I can see a warm and lovable fellow behind those eyes. The only part of this story that really upset me is that he was the first of the three outlaws that got killed by Billy the Kid . . . Such a shame. Besides my favorite bad guy, this story has more than the usual word-humor with ironic and funny lines spoken with all the seriousness they can muster . . . including the line that I use on myself often to explain why I sometimes do things my own way instead of following convention. In this story Fuzzy asks it of Billy the Kid when he says, "Anyone ever drop you on your head when you were a baby?" . . . And then there is the line early in the story when one outlaw says of another outlaw, "Your tongue and brain never have got acquainted with each other." - Good stuff . . . and there are plenty more great lines in this story . . . but the best thing is the plot line about a run on the bank . . . It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and we have a nail-biting run on the bank that puts us in mind of that favorite holiday classic, "It's a Wonderful Life" when the bank must open in the morning, and all the town is ready to pull their money out of the bank, sending the bank and the town into a crisis that it might not recover from. If only there was a pile of cash somewhere that someone could bring to the bank that would get them through the day . . . In this story it won't be the wedding money that saves the bank, but Billy the Kid will try to find the stolen bank money and return it to the bank before it is too late . . . A great plot line, even if it was borrowed from another movie . . . er . . . wait a minute folks . . . I gotta take it all back about this cowboy movie stealing a plot line from another great movie . . . . That other movie wasn't made until three years later . . . I must have been totally wrong about stealing plots from other movies, eh? Please forgive me . . . I probably got it wrong because I was dropped on my head too many times as a baby . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
