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 »

She-Devil Becomes a War-Angel In Love
1 August 2011 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Yeah. I know this sounds terribly sexist, but when it comes to Westerns

  • "The Law Of The West" should strictly forbid them from being reduced


to a trifling, little "Chick Flick".

I'm a guy who likes my Westerns rugged, mean, and masculine, with very little interference from women in the story at all.

Sure Chick Flicks are fine when it comes to any other genre of film, but definitely not allowed in a Western.

Ann Savage unconvincingly plays Jean Shelby. This highly-jealous, easily brought to tears woman is (get this) the leader of a tough, all-male band of Confederate raiders. Being so emotionally unstable, Jean's reliability as a leader of these men is seriously brought into question when she secretly turns traitor and falls for a Union soldier, pretty-boy who's actually been stalking her.

Yep. Renegade Girl is a dud.

Like I said before - Westerns should be forbidden to be made into Chick Flicks!
