marvellous film, enjoyed every minute of it.
2 January 2002 | by pamela7223See all my reviews

I saw this film many years go at the local picture house in Birmingham. Can't wait until it comes back on television.

I think Barbara Hale played her part very well. Also, her maid was also a good addition to the plot. I also think Pecos's side-kick gave a good backing.

Hope they put it back on bbc soon.
