Description by OLDIES.com:
The untamed wilds of the west provide little opportunity for a young woman - Angela Medley spends her time cheating card players and inviting trouble on the open plains with her outlaw lover, Slinger. When she meets Dr. Bruce Merritt, Angela sees a chance to escape the lawless life she's led, but Slinger keeps seducing her back into his violent world. After a vicious fight between Merritt and Slinger, Angie realizes there's only one way for her to find happiness and live a life she can be proud of. Refusing to let her go, Slinger kidnaps Angela and leads Merritt on a harrowing chase through the badlands before the two men meet in a final, deadly confrontation.
Angela's wild ways are handled perfectly by Patricia Medina, who was well known for portraying villainous beauties in everything from Orson Welles' Mr. Arkadin to the television series "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." Richard Denning is best known for his roles in such genre classics as The Creature From The Black Lagoon, The Creature With The Atomic Brain and Target Earth, as well as the TV series "Mr. & Mrs. North," "Michael Shayne" and "Hawaii Five-0."
Lawless characters in westerns are rarely played by women, but the plot of BUCKSKIN LADY turns convention on its head, with a plot constructed around the devious ways of Angela Medley (Patricia Medina). Medley loves to cheat people out of their money in card games, but sees a way out of her reckless existence via a chance meeting with a doctor. But as the two fall for each other, Medley's boyfriend won't let her go without a fight, leading to some vicious showdowns and a bloody confrontation between the two men fighting over her.
