Saddle Legion (1951)
Saddle Legion is a 1951 Western film starring Tim Holt. It co-starred Dorothy Malone, who was one of Holt's most prestigious co-stars. She was borrowed from Warner Bros..
According to Tom Stempel, Malone was "the most interesting actress" to appear in a Tim Holt Western:
The other women in the B westerns tended to be cute rather than sexy, but Malone’s look and voice were sex personified. So when Chito flirts with her Ann, Malone is way beyond that kind of B western cuteness... Malone’s sexual presence upsets the usual dynamics of the B westerns, and the filmmakers may have realized that Malone’s Ann would have eaten Martin’s Chito alive... [In the final scene] As he and Tim leave to take the cattle to market, Chito says to Ann, “You make sure you wait until I come back.” Since the end of the Holt westerns usually involved Chito running or riding away from girl who wants to marry him, the ending of Saddle Legion is a little more adult.
