Valley of the Sun (1942) Rated NR

In 1868, an army scout is arrested for helping Native Americans against their white oppressors. Along the way, he meets a Café owner who is planning on marrying a crooked Native American agent unless he has something to say about it. Starring Lucille Ball, James Craig, and Cedric Hardwicke.

This is one of those fun films that you watch mostly for the laughs. Ball is brilliant, and it is wonderful to see her as someone other than her Lucy characters. The love story that weaves through the film is just as fun to watch as it goes back and forth between the two men. I think this film has had some backlash due to the lack of political correctness. However, the humor overshadows this and makes it worth watching.
