The Legend of Frenchie King (French: Les Pétroleuses) is a 1971 French western comedy film directed by Christian-Jaque and starring Brigitte Bardot and Claudia Cardinale.

Cast[edit]

Plot[edit]

In Bougival Junction, New Mexico in 1880 the Francophone town is led by Marie Sarrazin. A new family arrives, calling themselves the Millers, but in fact they are the daughters of the hanged outlaw Frenchie King and his eldest daughter Louise seeks to keep her father's name alive by donning men's clothing and continuing his criminal ways. Louise and Maria fight but when they are both jailed they team up to take revenge on the town's men.[2]

Reception[edit]

The film received generally negative reviews. Bardot's performance in particular was criticised by Jean Loup Passek, who noted how uncomfortable she seemed in the film's outdoors action setting.[3] Writing in Variety Gene Moskowitz dismissed the film as "predictable, naive and gauche" whilst Tom Milne called it "drearily unfunny".[4]
