Future Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter makes her big-screen debut as a young wannabe country singer named Bobbie Jo Baker.
Bobbie Jo takes off from her job as a carhop waitress to join up with smooth-talking and easygoing charmer Lyle Wheeler (Marjoe Gortner), a young modern-day Billy The Kid fan.
Soon after they meet, they become involved in a series of crimes that spiral out of control into an adventure of armed robberies, homicide, police car chases, gunfights and general mayhem.
Along for the ride are Bobbie Jo’s spunky older sister Pearl (Merrie Lynn Ross), her boyfriend Slick Callahan (Jesse Vint), and Bobbie Jo’s sweet best friend Essie (Belinda Balaski).
Sheriff Hicks (Gene Drew) is a stereotypical hick lawman determined to stop them.
Peggy Stewart is Bobbie Jo and Pearl’s alcoholic mother, Gerrit Graham has a fun cameo as commune leader Magic Ray and Virgil Frye is a service station attendant who makes the fatal mistake of challenging Lyle on his quick draw abilities.
Filmed in dusty little towns in New Mexico, the low-budget Bonnie and Clyde clone from AIP has an episodic nature with a grim and gritty quality, a refreshing sense of humour, and some scenes of bloody gunshot violence.
There’s also plenty of nudity – including scenes of Lynda Carter baring her impressive gravity-defying assets.
