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.

Betty Grable plays a sharp shooring saloon singer who misses her target only when it's philandering boyfriend Cesar Romero. On the lam for accidently shooting a judge in the buttocks, Betty arrives in Bashful Bend imperonating the town's school teacher.
The comedy is broad and very funny, with Grable proving she's an able comedienne. The film's highlight is her singing In the Gloaming with Rudy Vallee. Look out for the unbilled Margaret Hamilton and Marie Windsor among the excellent supporting cast.
