In a fictionalized biography, Oklahoma outlaw Belle Starr meets the Dalton gang when rescued from lynching by Bob Dalton, who falls for her. So do gang member Mac and wealthy saloon owner Tom Bradfield, who's enlisted in a bankers' scheme to trap the Daltons. Dissension among the gang and Bradfield's ambivalence complicate the plot, as Belle demonstrates her prowess with shootin' irons, horses, and as a surprisingly racy saloon entertainer.Written by

Alright folks, so far I've pretty much raved about Jane Russell's week as she enjoys her time as Star of the Week, but now is the time to skip one of her movies: Montana Belle. I didn't even make it through this one.
With an unflattering haircut and a perpetual scowl, Jane Russell stars in another western as a tough broad. She starts the movie handcuffed because the local law enforcement, headed by Ray Teal and Scott Brady, intercepted a lynch mob about to string her up. Since she's a woman, the guys go a little soft on her and try to reform her instead of just hanging her along with the rest of her male cohorts. And when Scott and banker George Brent both fall for her, she has a tough decision on her hands. After all, a gutsy, tough outlaw needs a man to protect her, right? Seriously, folks, just rent The Outlaw instead.
