It is the only Hollywood film I can think of that builds a sympathetic portrait of a matriarchal society (at least until Ghosts of Mars). Only Allan Dwan could have made it. A prolific worker since the silent era, Dwan had fun where he could, and playfully subverted all manner of genres… Woman They Almost Lynched further displays his natural inclination towards play, and it is now available on Blu-ray, so future generations can now puzzle over its beautiful excesses for decades to come.
