Critic Reviews for Heller in Pink Tights

All Critics (4)

Cukor never loses sight of the theatricality which infuses both the fanciful incarnations of the saltimbanques and the genre conventions of the Western

September 6, 2009 | Full Review…

Strange mix of show-biz saga and Western, inventively styled.

August 8, 2008 | Full Review…

It's one of the rare Westerns that explores the barnstorming troupes in the Old West of the 19th-century.

More a comedy about showbiz that Western per se, Cukor's foray into the horseopera genre, based on Louis L'Amour novella, stars Sophia Loren as the leading lady of a troupe touring the frontier.
