The daughter of a railroad executive, Kit Dodge Jr. (Anne Baxter) is a no-nonsense gunslinger, but she finds that she could use a little help when she has to compete with Dakota (Rory Calhoun), the ruthless representative of a stagecoach company. Handsome and smooth-talking traveling salesman Johnny Behind-the-Deuces (Dan Dailey) turns out to be just the ally that she needs, as she attempts to defeat Dakota in a race that pits train against stagecoach.
“The great comedy of the great outdoors!”
Customer review: “Dan Dailey has never been better. He is totally relaxed and charming in his role as a salesman of "mustache cups," and subscriptions to the Saturday Evening Post. Anne Baxter plays her Annie Get Your Gun type character with surprising ease and coolness. She seems totally natural when she takes the badge and town sheriff role from her wounded grandfather (Will Wright).
This is one of Marilyn Monroe’s debut film, unfortunately she's only in it for about five minute. It is also Western star Jack Elam's debut. Look quick, he's in it for less than minute. You can also catch Victor Sen Yung (Hop Sing on the 1960's Western "Bonanza").
Dailey and Baxter giving great performances is the reason to watch, but the Technicolor, beautiful Colorado scenery, and bit parts by future stars is a lot of icing on this sweet little cake of a movie.
