The Ballad of Josie Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P221359~Doris Day~dorisday]] peers through layers of camera gauze to star in The Ballad of Josie, a second-rate variation of [[Feature~V8587~Cat Ballou~catballou]]. For openers, [[Performer~P17533~Day~dorisday]] is arrested for the billiard-cue bludgeoning of her late husband. Upon her acquittal, she takes up sheep ranching in Wyoming. To prove herself as good as any man, [[Performer~P17533~Day~dorisday]] organizes the other frontier wives into a woman's suffrage movement. She succeeds in establishing her equality, winning good-guy [[Performer~P230102~Peter Graves~petergraves]] in the process. Ballad of Josie was produced by [[Performer~P100547~Norman MacDonnell~normanmacdonnell]], who was on firmer Western ground when he was producer of the radio and TV series [[Feature~V284313~Gunsmoke~gunsmoke[tvseries]]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
