Back out west we go for some more over-saturated Technicolor misadventures in Castle’s The Conquest of Cochise. 3D was already out and Cinemascope was in. (See it in all its Vast Vision Glory!) However, from the reviews I’ve read about this tale of land swindles and broken treaties the only thing that stuck was the torture scenes in the last reel, meaning Castle was already well on his way toward the next phase of his cinematic career.
This post is part of Goregirl’s Dungeon and The Last Drive-In’s The William Castle Blogathan, a week long tribute to the King of Schlock. Follow the linkage, Boils & Ghouls. It’s gonna be a great week. And stick around, as we’ll be showcasing Castle’s film career from its fairly normal beginnings through it psychotronic glory days. Stay tuned!

And here we have a couple of Paul Henreid helmed shock-sock-o-ramas about some very bad girls doing some very bad things. First up, an all girl-gang of payroll robbers, including the lovely Mara Corday, have to silence their inside gal when she gets a little too chummy with the cops, which results in quite the blood bath. Then, we head down the very same road to hell and ruination when another girl gang of jewel thieves’ luck finally runs out.

Among the young female hellions being used and abused by the corrupt and sadistic reformatory system in our first feature are both Anne Francis and Rita “Rosita” Moreno, both making their screen debuts, whom crusading doctor Paul Henreid tries to reach with a carrot instead of a stick — well, make that a carrot instead of a fire-hose. What Sinister Secret Surrounds Their Fate? You won’t believe it until you see it! As for our second feature, both the title and the ad campaign betray the true nature of this tale of what lengths a newlywed will go to to avenge a husband who was murdered by a carjackers just after they leave the chapel.
