Did You Know?


Originally meant to be a vehicle for Maria Montez and Jon Hall, but Montez didn't like the script and refused to do the picture. Universal replaced her with Yvonne De Carlo and dropped Hall in favor of Rod Cameron. DeCarlo ultimately replaced Montez at Universal and appeared in many of the studio's "sword and sandal" epics originally intended for Montez. See more »


Jonathan Hart: Hey, what supports this town?
Judge Prescott: Odd jobs...
Jonathan Hart: Such as the occasional stagecoach holdup?
Judge Prescott: So far nothing's been proven...
Jonathan Hart: Why don't you do something about it?
Judge Prescott: I hope to, but I'm the judicial arm, not the executive...
Jonathan Hart: What's the matter with the sheriff?
Judge Prescott: Oh, he's indisposed...
Jonathan Hart: Sick?
Judge Prescott: Socially, the funeral was considered quite a success...

Frontier Gal saved by ending action, scenery and Beverly Simmons
1 December 2016 | by joeluherSee all my reviews

Frontier Gal has two exceptionally great features that make the film at least a "7" rather than a "4"- One is the least 20 minutes of the film- fast paced and lots of action (in contrast to the first 60 minutes which was primarily colorful scenes from an old west barroom), breathtaking scenery of the Sierra mountains in California and a great story ending and 2. Miss Beverly Simmons who was fantastic in her role of Mary Ann. From my research on IMDb.com Miss Simmons appeared in only about 4-5 movies, including Buck Privates Come Home. all before the age of fifteen and died too early at the age of 64. I believe her last film was a role in Weekend with Father (1951)for which she did not receive a credit. Miss Simmons was "Shirley Temple" like yet with her own unique charm and terrific acting. I give a 10 to Miss Simmons.
