Johnny Guitar


(out of 5)

 and  have a hoot of a time shooting it up in this fantastic female-led western. Crawford plays a saloon owner who has to protect her territory from land-owning, money-hungry McCambridge when a prospective railway construction jacks up the territory prices all around them. Between personal bouts, Joan manages to throw a look over at the title character () when she’s not too busy, a tall guitar-playin’ fella with a mighty big instrument. Audiences just love it when she puts on that black shirt! Peggy Lee sings the title song.
