The west may never have boasted so immaculate a markswoman but it seems highly unlikely that anyone is expected to take the film too seriously. Welch, with genteel modesty, makes the character for many rather ingratiating though others undoubtedly will find her plain ludicrous. All she has to wear after her farm has been set ablaze, while being raped by the drunken brothers, is a hastily-grabbed poncho. The avoidance of more than quick glimpses of a shapely thigh seems her main concern.

She is admirably supported by Ernest Borgnine as the meanest of the brothers and Robert Culp as the bounty hunter who befriends her. Christopher Lee, after his usual horror roles, makes an unusual appearance as a sympathetic gunsmith.
