The law and the outlaw
14 April 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

If George Montgomery has his way they'll be a person in the law enforcement community marrying into Belle Starr's family. Along during the action in Belle Starr's Daughter he takes a fancy to Ruth Roman. But Roman can't see him because she holds him responsible for the death of her mother played briefly by Isabell Jewell.

There's a truce between the law and the outlaw. The former marshal of Antioch says if the outlaws stay clear of Antioch he'll not pursue them into their sanctuary. But one night one of those outlaws Rod Cameron murders the marshal. He then murders Jewell and her confidante Kenneth MacDonald. And then he tells Roman that it was Montgomery's posse that did the dirty deed. So Montgomery will certainly have a lot to overcome.

Some good performances by players used to being home on the range compensate for a story that has quite a few holes in it. Of course this has nothing to do with the real Belle Starr any more than 20th Century Fox's big budget oater that starred Gene Tierney and Randolph Scott had to do with her.

But imagine the outlaw queen having a law enforcement official as a son-in-law?
