Storyline

Christina, the daughter of a Greek-immigrant family who does not share their belief that a woman's place is with her husband at the fireside, is a trick-shot artist, and with her Uncle Jim, a strolling troubadour, and his sidekick Andy, a mandolin player, heads west to make her fortune. Conway, owner of the saloon in a dusty frontier town hires them as performers. Later, she cleans him out in a poker game, with the aid of Uncle Jim calling out Conway's cards in Greek in a song. Chris opens up her own gambling palace, and sends Uncle Jim out looking for a cattle ranch to buy. Conway sends some henchmen over to shoot up her place and she kills one of them in a gun-battle. Meanwhile, out on the open range, Uncle Jim meets Rick Mason, a trail boss for a large herd heading for Dodge City. Chris buys the herd and hires Rick as a foreman of her newly-acquired ranch. Then John Andrews, a mining engineer from her past, comes to town. And Conway is still working for vengeance against her. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Historical trivia about the actor.
7 June 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the time of the casting for "Outlaw Queen," the leading man turned out to be Harry James, one of the most popular and busiest big band leaders and trumpet players in the world. I recall him saying that the director or producer approached him in a dance hall where he and his orchestra were playing and told him that he looked right for the part and suggested he star in the movie. It just happened that his schedule would allow it, he was already quite familiar with horses, and liked westerns. It was quite a thrill for me to see my faviorie band leader acting in this good western movie. When I later mentioned seeing him in this western, he laughed proudly and said something to the effect that he had a good time playing the part and that he also recently made an album of Western Music. So, I liked the movie as a good Western and thought it most unusual, but very good, that Harry James was in it.
