Girls with Guns

Women in Westerns generally fall into two predictable categories: good girls and good-time girls.  But give them a gun and both become a lot more interesting! Although songwriter Irving Berlin famously asserted, “You Can’t Get a Man with a Gun,” as seen in these lively female firearm yarns, Hollywood seemed to believe otherwise. Film historian Elizabeth Anthony, Reel Classics president, provides introductions and commentary.

The Boy From Oklahoma (1954)

Aspiring attorney Will Rogers, Jr. wanders into town to mail a letter and quickly finds himself in a shooting match with local tomboy Nancy Olson. She disapproves of his laconic, lariat ways and he disapproves of her masculine attire, neither of which are the worst of their troubles – but almost. Directed by Michael Curtiz, this laidback Western features fun alongside very adequate action and adventure. 87 minutes. Appropriate for ages 8+.
