For those of us who love some good old-fashioned catfights in our Westerns, Joan Crawford dominates this melodramatic horse opera from the great Nicolas Ray. Crawford plays Vienna, a saloon owner in the Wild West of Arizona. She faces rivalries, lost love, and a near-lynching while trying to protect her establishment and her pride. With gorgeous and garish saturated hues through the use of Trucolor film stock, plenty of thrilling action, subversive commentary from the McCarthy era, and one of the most badass female protagonists of the 1950s (or any era), this film has got something for everyone. So, hop in the saddle and ride on down to Vidiots to watch Joan Crawford take control!
