Dangerous Woman

If you have been around old motion pictures for more than ten minutes or so you already know that cowboy western stories were the bread and butter of movie theaters in times past. In 1948 the King of the Cowboys, Roy Rogers, was celebrating ten years of movie making with Under California Skies, and over at Producers Releasing Corporation answered with cowboy movies starring Eddie Dean. Eddie Dean was a popular singing star on the radio in the 1930's and moved to motion pictures in the mid 1930's, but his face was better suited to radio than motion pictures, and his success on the big screen was limited. In spite of this PRC put him in several cowboy western adventures with plenty of shooting, fist fights and pretty women. After this movie he made one more cowboy movie for PRC called The Tioga Kid, and it was the final motion picture produced by PRC before they went out of business - the formula cowboy picture was not as popular as it was in the 1930's and the theaters were moving on to other themes. In this adventure there is one twist in the familiar formula for a good cowboy movie . . . We have the cowboy hero singing his way into town with his goofy side-kick . . . We have the gang of outlaws shooting and killing and creating general havoc around town . . . We have a rancher who gets killed when he discovers who gang leader The Hawk really is . . . We have his helpless daughter returning to town to discover her dead father and the impending loss of the ranch . . . And we have one little twist in the story . . . The Hawk is none other than the rancher's beautiful niece . . . Yup, the blonde beauty is the tough-as-nails outlaw leader that the tough henchmen obey in their crime wave of the West. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with lots of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
