(1934) Directed by Mervyn LeRoy. Aline MacMahon, Ann Dvorak, Preston Foster. (63 min.)

Part of the Car Crazy film series. An ex-gun moll on the lam dons mechanic’s overalls to run a Mohave Desert gas station, shielding her wild kid sister from the abusive men she knows too well. Forget Thelma and Louise—these hard-boiled dames (along with gold diggers Glenda Farrell and Ruth Donnelly) are the real deal. This Western noir was banned by the Legion of Decency.

Preceded by Vitaphone short Frank Whitman: That Surprising Fiddler.
