I can't say this is a good movie. It's low budget, with laughable special effects ands a motley group of Indians that look like they come from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds. But, still, I watched it all the way through, partly because it was so funny , both deliberately and unintentionally, but mainly because of Sasha Higgins, who plays Alice Erickson, a Swedish immigrant married to Lucky Erickson, a philanderer who has abandoned her to work a gold mine up in the hills of Colorado. When Alice hears that an Indian war has broken out in the area of Lucky's mine and that he hasn't been heard from in three months, she sets off to find him, picking up a bounty hunter along the way to help her. In addition to being beautiful, Ms. Higgins plays the role with just the right amount of absurdity. The movie is so ridiculous that there were actually places where I laughed out loud. Ms. Higgins plays her role for comic effect but manages to be captivating at the same time. To be honest, I had never heard of her before but I commend her courage in taking up this project.
Alice travels west along with a ruthless bounty hunter in search of her lost husband.
