15 thoughts on “SnarkAlong Recap: The Wild Women of Chastity Gulch

  1. My eyes hurt now…and not from the blurry images. I’m pretty sure it was all the pepto-bismal pink and the eighties hair…urk.

  2. I don’t suppose for a moment the producers even considered the pic as being related to real history. A lot of people in this who never made it past the boob tube.

  3. Why is this town called ‘Chastity Gulch’? Oh, wait, that’s actually a dirty joke. Hmmm. I’m calling shenanigans on this. Innuendo hadn’t been invented yet in the 1860s.

  4. I think you hit all the high points…the effort put into your detailed analysis is a testament to your fortitude… I would never have lasted. Kudos to you! :-)

  5. I am sooooo sorry I missed the live podcast, but your recap is hi-LAIR-ious. Even without having seen this film, I think it’s safe to nominate it as the worst historical costume movie of all time. Just the poofy ’80s hair and heavy make up alone is enough to qualify!

  6. Regarding the lack of open-crotch drawers; I’m having a hard time thinking of *any* “mainstream” period movie that has ever accurately included those as part of women’s lingerie, even in scenes where those would make sense (such as those set in bordellos). Really, really odd.

    1. Forgot to mention this, and it really has nothing to do with costuming – but I can assure you, as someone with relatives in southwest Missouri, that the Ozark Mountains look NOTHING like that. It’s as absurd as having the Ventura Pier, with bare brown mountains in the background, double for Palm Beach, Florida in the 1990’s TV show “Silk Stalkings”.

      1. Oh yeah. My husband and I used to leave in Santa Clarita, which is just north of LA on the edge of the desert, and where it looks like this and every other supposedly-in-the-West TV show is shot. He came into the room while I was watching this and said, “Santa Clarita?” (While we’re at it, check out the Dukes of Hazard for amazingly So. Cal. landscape…)
