Movie Info

This rodeo songfest finds Jackie (Mamie Van Doren) in love with Kelly (Jeff Richards) as they perform on the traveling rodeo circuit. Cool Man (Arthur Hunnicutt) is the likeable rodeo veteran. Jackie carries the torch for Kelly, who plays hard to get. Kelly plans to leave his bronco busting life behind before injuries and age catch up with him. Liz (Carol Ohmart) is a rich divorcee with eyes for Kelly. Van Doren sings five songs, and Tex Williams plays himself singing "Song Of The Rodeo". Johnny Olenn sings the title track and "You Lovable You".

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!'
