The Beautiful Blonde from Bashful Bend  [DVD]Betty Grable (actor)
Cesar Romero (actor)
Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 77 min
Though one of Betty Grable's better vehicles, this burlesque western was considered to be one of the major catastrophes of 1949, a major setback for its talented writer / director Preston Sturges, who had acquired a reputation for churning out adult, wacky, risqué comedies.
Viewed today, however, this farce can be regarded as a comedy triumph for both star and director. Fabulously designed and photographed (by Harry Jackson) in that gloriously garish 1940s Technicolor, the film features a terrific cameo from daffy Hugh Herbert as a myopic quack.
