Movie Info

In this western, Maureen O'Hara plays a dance-hall gal who protects the identity of a cattle rustler -- mainly because she's in the same crooked business herself. Complications ensue when O'Hara falls in love with the very sheriff who intends to bring the rustler to justice.

Critic Reviews for The Redhead From Wyoming

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Director Lee Sholem has what amounts to a craze for closing a scene with a meaningless shot. It becomes quite fascinating.

Plenty of violent gunplay, fast movement and a sensationally-gowned Miss O'Hara provide the excitement in the Leonard Goldstein production, as set up in the script by Polly James and Herb Meadow.

April 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Mild Western has good characters and an admirable interest in non-violent solutions to conflict.

April 16, 2020 | Full Review…

This is the old, old story or the cattle baron versus the small settlers. But the film is lifted above the average Western by a new twist.

April 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Maureen O'Hara's Technicolor décolletage is a good deal more impressive than the fiat old plot that surrounds her.

December 2, 2019 | Full Review…

While O'Hara and Bishop shine in an otherwise ordinary Western yarn, Nicol is hopelessly miscast as the heroic sheriff.

Audience Reviews for The Redhead From Wyoming


Okay western is colorful and Maureen O'Hara is fiery in the lead. It's all pretty average until it tips into the realm of the ridiculous by having Maureen fight a range war in diamonds and a black beaded evening gown! Still not bad of its type.
