Dorothy Page is Hollywood’s first and only singing cowgirl! Though the concept might have done better financially after the women’s rights movement, the crooning female western heroine still works quite well. In The Singing Cowgirl, Page is a rancher who uncovers a plot by a corrupt government official to steal her neighbor’s gold-rich land. Murder and treachery abounds, and Page enlists the help of a handsome drifter (Dave O’Brien) to fight off the bad guys. Though the action is fun, most of the film’s effervescent charm comes from the Page’s beautiful contralto voice. There are also some hysterically unintentionally goofy lines, like “edgier than a rattlesnake in a pickle barrel,” making The Singing Cowgirl the perfect throwback film to enjoy with popcorn on a Sunday afternoon.
