Review - Cat Ballou

It's supposed to be a comedy, but apart from the scene where Shelleen's horse leans against the wall with its legs crossed, there was nothing funny about it. Marvin won an Oscar, but why anyone thought his over-acting drunkard bit was good acting is beyond me. Just not an interesting movie at all.
