In this surrealist Western, the title character carries a guitar instead of a gun. But the real hero is Joan Crawford in cowboy drag, a saloon keeper falsely accused of a crime.  Her accuser, the villain, is also a lady, which makes the situation pretty much unthinkable in 1950’s Hollywood.  This is a fun and colorful romp of a movie that both glorifies and pokes fun at the Western genre, especially its gender stereotypes. A strong Worth watching.
