Item Details

Beauregard "Bo" Decker and Virgil Blessing set out from their ranch in Montana to Phoenix, Arizona on the bus, so Bo can participate in a big rodeo. Bo is a brash, obnoxious, at times rather dislikable young man, skilled at ridin' and rustlin' and not much more. Bo has in his mind that there in the big city, he's going to find "an angel" and take possession of her. In Phoenix, he meets Cherie. She had enough gumption to get out of Arkansas, and is now trying to earn enough money to get to L.A. But Cherie isn't quite ready to become Bo's personal angel, even if it would get her out of a dive girlie club!

This film is about the abuse that Marilyn's character endores at the hands of a young cowboy who really does not know how to behave in society. I can not believe that in the end she actually is in love with him. He really did not learn how to behave throughout the film.

"Naive but brash"? On the jacket, he is described as "innocent". I would describe him as a woman abuser. Even after his good buddy and a bus driver warn him about his misogynist behavior, he has to be beaten up by these two men to realize his errors and promise to change from woman abuser to a more reasonable creep. All through the movie, he browbeats the Marilyn character, tries to control her, holds her down physically, tells her that she belongs to him, manhandles her, kidnaps her. He postures and yells like a narcisstic rooster. I could not bear watching the Marilyn character suffer from her "love" and victimization by this "brash" cowboy.The most interesting thing is that in this movie, Marilyn's voice sounds real, rather than the breathy, kittenish tones she is known for.
