Rod Cameron and Ruth Roman, outlaws, very good film
2 August 2011 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Whoever lived through the old westerns will remember how we were always looking forwards to break the clichés, to see something different. The movies used to flirt with us specially in the trailers, by making the heroes seem to be bad. But there was always a catch, and at the end all would go back to the standard plot. Perhaps this explains why I felt thrilled seeing the pretty Ruth Roman being a bandit and at a certain point wearing the handkerchief mask. Whoever would not recognize her without the mask would have to be blind! But it was charming, and worth it. I am sure that was part of the trailer. And what about Rod Cameron as the bad guy? That was a great idea and he gives the best performance of all his films that I have seen. I have a certain difficulty to accept George Montgomery's hairstyle popular in the fifties, but awkward in our present days, but he was an OK actor and I always enjoyed his films, specially this one. Belle Starr's daughter is an amazingly well done unpretentious western directed by the efficient Lesley Selander
