COLT was a film tailor-made for American singer Lola Falana. She stars
as Lola Gate, the head of a troupe of saloon entertainers, forced to
settle down in Santa Anna when one of the girls comes down with typhoid
fever. As it turns out, the town is terrorized by a bully - aptly named
El Diablo - who keeps everybody in line through violent intimidation
(including crucifixions, whippings and church burning). Lola convinces
the local young doctor to join her in a long-overdue challenge to El
Falana was a dancer/singer discovered by Sammy Davis Jr in the early
'60s. She starred opposite Davis for her
debut film A Man Called Adam in 1962. After the release
of that movie, the two traveled to Italy for years of nightclub performances.
She learned fluent Italian quickly and began appearing in various television
programs. Miss Falana was then signed to make a series of motion pictures.
She later returned to the States with Sammy who took her to Las Vegas.
For years Lola Falana was the "Queen of Vegas," enjoying a
long and lucrative run at the Sands and Aladdin Casinos, known for her
signature song Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets. Her career
was cut short when diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1987; Ms Falana
officially retired after a remission in 1996. Today she lives comfortably
in Las Vegas.
