Anybody else get the impression that Blazing Saddles is a remake of this?

A lot of what I love about MST3K is really enjoying the weird "B" movies they dig up that sometimes turn out to be artistic gems or weird original ideas I haven't seen before. This Roger Corman B-Movie is one of those gems. Having such tough female leads in a violent western would be progressive even today and was awesome in this movie. Yeah the film had some cardboard element to it but I really enjoyed the story and film even with it's obvious warts. I'd even consider it one of the best films they've done.

On the MST3K side the riffing is absolutely top notch in one of the last Joel episodes. I wasn't very familiar with the early episodes until recently going through them on Youtube. Great episode, glad I found it buried. I hadn't seen it before.

I sometimes like westerns and this one isn't bad at all. Good riffing and I love Tom's teleporting.

Doesn't it bother anyone else that Beverly Garland breaks by far more laws than everyone else in this movie put together? She can't establish a curfew, she can't banish people, and she can't shut down a business simply because she doesn't agree with it! It's a little convenient that everything that's "illegal" in this town are the things the marshal doesn't like.

"Yeah, why don't you just Not die, Joel?" -Tom
"Well, everybody dies." -Joel
"Oh and if everybody ran off a cliff, you'd do that too?" -Crow
"That's not how it works!" -Joel
^_^ I enjoyed the host segs in this. And the riffs were spot on.

I have to admit that there are some good lines in this movie. Of course, Roger Corman wasn't the screenwriter.

I've seen a lot of movies in my day but this may be the first to have a character killed off before the opening credits were finished.

Forget being a female marshall; she could very well be arrested for indecent exposure for wearing pants and not a dress. (Then again she is the law...) Artistic license and all, but methinks the townsfolk would have been not a little surprised but downright appalled. However, this is a Corman film and there are way more points to criticize than simple historical accuracy.

Beverly Garland sure loved kickin ass before she became everybody's TV grandma in shows like Scarecrow & Mrs. King and Remington Steele. She was even Superman's mom-in-law in Lois & Clark! If only he knew what she did in Gunslinger and Swamp Diamonds!

Beverly Garland actually is taking the star way too seriously, except for having her husband murdered and everything. Instantly freaking over the 24-hour bar breaking curfew, then right after that scene, she tells the guy, "Either you turn around or I'll book you for rustling. What a power hungry bitch.

I don't understand why they used Sam Bass as the new marshall's name. Sam Bass was a notorious outlaw and train robber in the 1870's. Perhaps a little artistic license by our friend Roger Corman!

I kind of have a soft spot for the overly made up/ overly hornball anti heroines like the saloon owner here and 'Crazy eyebrows' lady in Hercules Unchained. Female bad guys just have to be trashy in these old movies.

Watching the original movie from the link, and a few lines and scenes in the MST3K version are missing from the 'original' movie.

I like how no one was even slightly perturbed that she pulled out a gun at the funeral and shot a man in cold blood. They were all like, "Oh, who was that guy? Whatever, he's dead now."

The opening scene says May 21, 1878 was a Friday. How can I have any confidence at all in the writing team when May 21, 1878 was a TUESDAY?!? And how can I show my face in public after admitting that I actually looked up that fact? Don’t look at me… I’m hideous!

Also, has anyone noticed that Corman flicks always have a dark-haired submissive milquetoast wormy guy? Sometime he works for a powerful woman, or against them like Viking Women, but he always has a strong relationship with strong women of some kind. Possibly he's a Mary Sue...?

Regardless what can be said about Corman's movies, the title and credit sequences always, always kick ass. This is probably the best of them, but I like them all.
