Cat Ballou (1965)

Elliot Silverstein directs Jane Fonda, Lee Marvin and Michael Callan in this musical comedy western about an accidental female outlaw.

Big, silly, not very sharp. Fonda is cartoonishly slinky, Marvin somehow picks up an Oscar for his laziest performance, Nat King Cole crops up as Greek Chorus style figure. There’s nothing wrong with it, its busy with shouty, shorty, flirty stuff. But there ain’t much to write home about either.
