Frenchie 1958 Joel McCrea Shelley Winters Western
Stars: Joel McCrea, Shelley Winters, Paul Kelly
Frenchie Fontaine sells her successful business in New Orleans to come West. Her reason? Find the men who killed her father, Frank Dawson. But she only knows one of the two who did and she’s determined to find out the other.
Frenchie (Shelly Winters) is a professional gambler and has just moved into a sleepy western town. Soon after buying the dying local bar, she is able to make a huge success of it, turning it into a gambling parlor. This irks some of the locals who want to keep the town clean and trouble-free, though they don’t realize that she has ulterior motives. It seems her father was murdered many years earlier and the trail has led to this and an adjacent town. In the meantime, romance blossoms between her and the Sheriff who just happens to want to shut down the gambling establishment.
Besides the usual gun play there is an old fashioned saloon fight when Frenchie tangles with another woman.
