(out of 5)
Raucously cheesy western stars Jennifer Jones (in a terribly overripe performance) as a lusty Mexican girl who boils Gregory Peck‘s blood while staying with him at his ranch and eventually becoming his wife. Lillian Gish‘s death scene is a study in hilarity, and the final pistol showdown between Jones (whose husband David O. Selznick produced this turkey) and Peck is a kitsch lover’s delight.
