Trivia

In May 1865 leading only a few dozen men on a raid into Kentucky, William Quantrill was ambushed by Union soldiers and shot in the chest. He died of his wounds on June 6, 1865. See more »

Goofs

Ann Savage's stylishly blonded and bobbed hairstyle is strictly 1946, and relentlessly out of place in the 1864-1865 time frame in which the story is supposedly taking place. See more »

The Mission Comes First
21 April 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Renegade Girl stars Ann Savage in this Lippert Production about a Belle Starr like outlaw who after some service with Quantrill's Raiders leads an outlaw band. The story is a rehashed version not of the real Belle Starr's story, but of the 20th Century Fox film that starred Gene Tierney and Randolph Scott. Elements of that plot are definitely present.

For the tough leader of an outlaw band this woman has a lot of issues. She has a mission that tops all, to get Chief Thundercloud who is another renegade leader who has a grudge against her family the Shelbys. What the grudge is we're not told, but he's wiped out her whole family except for her.

Ann's got Union Cavalry captain Alan Curtis and fellow outlaw Russell Wade panting after her, but her mission comes first.

Renegade Girl is a poorly plotted and shoddily directed affair. Only the most confirmed B western addicts should be looking at this one.
