Critic Reviews for Born Reckless

All Critics (1)

Mamie Van Doren plays a saloon-singin', trick-ridin', saddle-horn-strokin' (really!) and 'good-looking piece of horse flesh' named Jackie. As the movie's leering poster promises: 'She's every big-time rodeo prize rolled into one... tight pair of pants!'
