Liz plays the Bandit Queen of the Old West
6 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not a huge fan of westerns but I can watch Elizabeth Montgomery apply Prep-H on Karl Malden! She is one of those rare actresses than can make anything look good. Here she plays "Belle Starr". She robs trains, sleeps with whomever she wants, including an indian and an assortment of villians. She even talks back to the local preacher. One funny scene is where the preacher very slyly suggests that she sleep with him in order to get the local townspeople off her back. She tells the preacher, "What you need at night is a good hand of Solitaire to ease your burden". Well, with that, they burn her out later that night. Even her own son is very resentful of his mother because she can't act like a normal mom and give up crime. Liz is great in this movie, good supporting cast too including Cliff Potts (who raped her in 1974's "A Case of Rape"). Not a great western but watchable, especially if you are a fan of Elizabeth Montgomery. I won't tell you what happens at the end but it's a surprise. It shouldn't take too long to figure out what happened.
