This movie is the original "Pretty Woman" only a lot more light hearted and one of the more humorous John Wayne flicks. John Wayne plays his typical rough and tumble type character, this time as a just-struck-it-rich miner with a love 'em and leave 'em attitude but also with a heart of gold.
Three or four bar-room brawls and the entrance of Ernie Kovacs as the Snidley Whiplash-pencil-thin-mustache scheming type character keep the movie lighthearted and funny. Frenchie beauty Capucine plays the hooker with the heart of gold that trys to claim Sam McCords heart.
Ha - new quote to the list (now to have to do it in the John Wayne typical drawl): There's one thing you gotta learn about women. They're all liars. And if they ain't liars, they're worse, laying for you with wedding music. Take that little dame from Oregon. All I was doing was tying her shoe laces and she starts beating me over the head with a preacher. Or that little thing from Minnesota, who tried to marry me while I was so drunk I didn't know what I was doing, if it hadn't been for the parson's mercy, I'd have been hooked good, for good! You just can't trust women. No matter how honest they act, they all want to be wives!
