Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage
By Jane Martin
THE STORY: Rob Bob is a young, somewhat busted up rodeo cowboy who's convalescing at the homestead of Big 8, his overripe girlfriend. Their relatively peaceable love nest is shattered late one eve when a pierced, pregnant punker gal named Shedevil arrives desperate on the doorstep, hotly pursued by her homicidal biker ex-boyfriend, Black Dog. Bloodshed ensues, followed by a frenzied attempt at cleaning up the mess before the visiting sheriff catches anything ill adrift. Subtitled “a ‘B' Western Horror Flick for the Stage,” Jane Martin's Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage is black comedy at its most hilarious.
