The Beautiful Blonde From Bashful Bend (Blu-ray)
Directed by Preston Sturges
Olga San Juan
The Beautiful Blonde from Bashful Bend is a romantic comedy-western directed by the legendary Preston Sturges (The Lady Eve, Sullivan’s Travels) and starring Betty Grable (I Wake Up Screaming), Cesar Romero (The Joker of TV’s Batman), Rudy Vallee (The Palm Beach Story) and Olga San Juan (Blue Skies). In this wild six-gun farce set in the old west, Grable plays a hot-tempered racy saloon entertainer named Freddie who’s as quick with a pistol as she is to kick up her heels. During a fray, Freddie accidentally shoots a judge while trying to protect her boyfriend (Romero) - she leaves town disguised as a schoolteacher and woos a mine owner (Vallee) while trying to escape persecution. Sturges co-wrote the screenplay with Earl Felton (The Narrow Margin), based on a story by Felton.
Blu-ray Extras Include:
"Undoubtedly a reference point for Mel Brooks while penning Blazing Saddles, The Beautiful Blonde From Bashful Bend receives a stellar HD debut on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber."
