CORCHO BLISS

Those who like their wild West killings in ragtime and can down any number of ""Sundance"" varieties will enjoy these adventures of three cool hotshots on the run and back. Corcho Bliss, alias Floyd Wheatley, is a wanted-poster buccaneer with a heart of fool's gold; Willie Harper, an elegant bantam, is committed to ""help the gladiators"" on any side of anything via arms running; and overblown Pearl is Willie's lusty daughter. Most of the action recrossing the Rio Grande has to do with the thundering excursions of a happily bloodthirsty Mexican revolutionary general, Data, who needs guns -- and Pearl. More than once Corcho, the near victim of Dara's pleasure in executions, escapes from the general, the Feds, and even a Pinkerton man by the skin of tequila-stained teeth; but an exchange of brides in a Data/Pearl wedding finds Corcho married to powerful Pearl. Through jails, deserts, ambushes, and some high stake games, the finaglers rise to the top. Entertaining Western burlesque in rickyticky tempo.
