The old West: Looking for an investment that makes them rich fast,
greenhorns Melvin Potter (Charles Veltmann jr) and his wife Ruby (Jodean
Lawrence) hook up with old prospector Pan (Stanton Pritchard), who tells
them about an incredibly rich goldmine ... that's out in Indian land
The Potters are quick to finance an expedition to the mine, and
are accompanied by a couple of cutthroats, Horton (Louis Massad) and
Condon (Ralph Cookson), whose motives are not exactly noble. Soon, two
deserters (Del Monroe, Hugo Stanger) join the group as well, with motives
as dishonest as those of the two cutthroats.
Even before they hit Indian
country, the expedition seems to be doomed, but driven by greed, they move
on, and nothing can stop them, not even the Indians - a tribe of topless
girls led by a blonde -, who pick them out and kill them one by one,
Still, who hasn't already died makes it to the mine, and
they find gold, too, gold that will make them all rich beyond their
imagination ... if they ever make it back to civilisation. It's not long
before the group has been cut down to two, Condon and Melvin Potter, but
instead of doing the only reasonable thing and try to fight their way to
safety together, they have a shootouot - which Potter wins, only to be
killed by the Indian girls right afterwards.
With the enemy destroyed,
the girls put the gold back where our group of heroes has found it, to
lure other prospectors to their doom ...
The main selling point
of this cheap blend of old-fashioned B-Western and The Treasure of the
Sierra Madre is of course its topless Indian girls ... but they are
used in a completely unimaginative way, inasmuch as they are not really
woven into the story at all, they are just presented as an anonymous
threat to the cast, and other than running through the scenery topless
from time to time, they are left with very little to do.
topless girls, the film has very little to offer, it's sloppily directed,
badly acted, could have done with a higher or at least better-spent
budget, and the script, which isn't without its points of interest, could
have done with a bit of polishing up.
This isn't to say the film isn't
somehow charming in its cheap and slightly incompetent but in-your-face
way and seen as a piece of nostalgia - just expect anything but a
