The plot idea wasn't bad--but it sure should have been better.
29 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Montana Moon" is a mis-matched romance where a rich and spoiled flapper, 'Montana' (Joan Crawford) gets married on the spur of the moment to a cowboy...yes, a cowboy! Larry (Johnny Mack Brown) is a pretty simple guy and the two have really nothing in common--and as the film progresses, it becomes more and more obvious. What also becomes obvious is that Montana is a spoiled brat and has no intention to stop her party-girl lifestyle and so, not surprisingly, the marriage is doomed.

This film's biggest problem is when it was made and the director. It's pretty obvious as an early talky that several of the actors were using really, really bad accents (Brown and Cliff Edwards in particular) and the director SHOULD have worked on this. They should sound like westerners--not hicks. Additionally, the sound quality varies a lot--and at times is almost unintelligible. Fortunately, this problem isn't frequent. There also is way too much music--especially with Edwards singing about two or three songs too many. And, finally, Crawford's character is really unlikable and you wonder why anyone would want to fight to get her back! Despite all this, the plot itself isn't bad and the film still manages to keep your attention.
