Storyline

Produced by Ken Murray strictly as a vehicle for Laurie Anders, his curvy protégé from his television show and billed above the title and first billed in the cast as Laurie ("I-like-the-wide-open-spaces") Anders, which was her catch-line phrase and how she was introduced and known. This is neither a comedy, satire or parody---missing badly on all attempts at such---and isn't much of a western either, even by bottom-of-the-barrel B-standards. The plot by veteran B-western villain player Bob Duncan, who did manage to write himself the best role in the movie, relative to there being no good roles in this movie, has town banker Anderson, the secret head of an outlaw gang, trying to organize a Cattleman's Association and not getting any takers. He sends for Trigger Gans to act as a persuader. But a mysterious, masked rider known as El Coyote begins to resist. El Coyote is of course Laurie Dawson, daughter of retired Marshal and rancher Ben Dawson, and her El Coyote role ensured that ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

This one's a mess
3 April 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Ken Murray comedian and now more famous as the guy who takes all those home movies of Hollywood in its golden era turned producer for The Marshal's Daughter. This film was created to showcase Laurie Anders from Murray's TV show. Anders was cowgirl trick roping artist who goes Victor/Victoria here.

Her day job is with Murray's medicine show. But by night she goes Zorro as a masked fighter for law and order in the old west helping her dad Marshal Hoot Gibson catch the one that got away.

I'm betting Murray cashed in a few favors to get this produced. Some friends did some cameos, Hoot Gibson was certainly way past his prime and wasn't getting movie offers. Tex Ritter sang some songs on the sound track.

The poker game with guests Preston Foster, Jimmy Wakely, Johnny Mack Brown, and Buddy Baer was the only bright spot in one dismal attempt at satire.
