This movie is a legend and deservedly so. Great story and acting, especially
by Lee Marvin. Make sure you keep listening while you are watching.

I love these kind of movies which is funny and it doesn't have the violence
that they want to put in the movies now days

Maybe an old classic but our teenagers enjoyed it.
"Loved it !"

Jane Fonda plays Cat Ballou, with Lee Marvin taking 2 roles: one good, and
the other an absolute rotter. She returns to her home in Wyoming, at a time,
when a greedy and conniving Railroad Boss, wants to get the Ballou property in
any way that he can.
The way that Cat fights for her rights, is with a romantic "interlude " and
the help of Kid Shilleen. As drunk as he can be, he is also the twin brother of
the hired killer of Cat's father.
Watch, and enjoy. So as to see what happens next.
It's That Way-Out Whopper Of A Funny Western…A She-Bang To End All She-Bangs! Cat(herine) Balou's family farm is being threatened by the Rail Road. She sends for Kid Shelleen, finding him to be the drunkest gunfighter in the west. When her father is killed by the rail road magnate's gunman, she vowes to fight on. Shelleen manages to ride sideways in several scenes, while minstrels sing the ballad of Cat Ballou in between scenes.
