5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, well done RKO Western November 11, 2003
Barbara Stanwyck and Ronald Reagan give fine performances in this colorful little western. Directed by Allan Dwan and produced by Benedict Bogeaus, Cattle Queen of Montana, is well produced, colorful, and entertaining throughout. Lots of action, great photographer, and a great story make for the kind of thrills that Western fans appreciate. Louis Forbes, who also did the musical score for the Dwan/Borgeaus collaboration Silver Lode, also composed the fine score for this one.
The VCI DVD issue is clean and sharp, colorful, and well-done, with extras that add to our enjoyment. We owe VCI a debt of thanks for rescuing this film, and others suchs as TENNESSEE'S PARTNER, SILVER LODE, THE YOUNG LAND, and PASSION (all from the 1950s), which they have made available [see listing for them].
Highly recommended to fans of Westerns and those who enjoy 1950s cinema.

This great flick is also available as part of a double feature (Cattle Queen of Montana/Tennessee's Partner) which sells for less money than EITHER of the films sell for separately! It is on Amazon.

Both films have great transfers and it seems to be released by the same company!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ronald Reagan as a cowboy with Barbara June 4, 2010
Cattle Queen of Montana is a decent Western, but not as good as I hoped. On the positive side - the scenery is great, the action is good, and the cast is solid. Ronald Reagan is actually pretty good as a cowboy, and Barbara Stanwyck does a nice job portraying a strong Western woman. On the negative side - the plot is predictable, the bad guy is kind of lame, and the actors portraying the native Americans are not very believable. The special effects are not too good either. Overall, I enjoyed the film, but as a fan of Westerns it is only decent.

Wonderful movie with Barbara Stanwyck with Ronald Reagan. Stanwyck family is moving their stock from Texas to this Valley that her Dad had put a marker down for a ranch. In the process these Indians cause a stampede. There is one white dude behind it while selling guns to the Indians. Ronald Reagan is working for the government to try to find out is behind selling the guns. Wonderful movie with beautiful scenery to see. Movie is in color and beautifully done with her energy and her perfection in her character role.

3.0 out of 5 stars My favorite President June 21, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Pretty good western for the time. I bought it because it is the only movie I have of President
Reagan when he was an actor. He was a good man , he just wasn't always right. But he was my favorite President. Barbara Stanwyck was good but got better in time.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Gen Xer Likes Reagan Movies November 3, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fun film; I bought it from Amazon earlier this year as my interest in Reagan movies surfaced.

Some sexual inneuendo, some sexual tension and some cowboy bang-bang stuff.

Plot? Oh, bad cattle thief starting range war with bogus Indians, murders the titular character's daddy and steals the deed to her daddy's ranch, and Reagan, an embedded government agent (working with the cavalry), is on the sneaky case to save the day and snag the girl.

Fabulous color palette and nifty cinematograpy; snappy dialogue.

I liked it very much and have purchased four other Reagan movies this year.

Film producer Benedict Bogeaus and veteran director Allan Dwan (Robin Hood 1922) teamed up in the 1950's to give us several films mostly westerns. Among those was the excellent SILVER LODE (1954) and TENNESSEE'S PARTNER (1955) John Payne was the hero of these two, with Ronald Reagan as Tennessee's partner in the second. Both of these are also available through Amazon on VCI Entertainments DVD.

Unlike the above-mentioned movies, CATTLE QUEEN OF MONTANA (1953) seems to have come in for a bit of "stick". Starring Barbara Stanwyck in the title role, no doubt it she cuts a fine figure in western garb and she is the best thing in it, although it has been said elsewhere that she hated it. That maybe true but she is still very watchable against the backdrop of Montana's Glacier National Park. The acclaimed-cinematographer on this film was John Alton who was also responsible for the cinematography in the aforementioned SILVER LODE and TENNNESSEE'S PARTNER.

Miss Stanwyck gives an energetic performance as the woman whose cattle and land are at risk from rustlers and claim jumpers, she is helped by college educated good Indian Colorados (Lance Fuller) and hindered by bad Indian Natchakoa we also have the white-heavy Tom McCord (Gene Evans) and his sidekick Yost (Jack Elam). Thrown in for good measure is a mysterious gunman called Farrell (Ronald Reagan). The Blackfeet Indians hired as extras, were so impressed with Stanwyck (who done her own stunts) they gave her the Indian name of Princess Many Victories and made her a blood sister.

Any film now that starred pre-1981 Ronald Reagan has or should have additional interest because at that time he became the 40th President of the USA. In the film BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985) the hero Marty is transported back in time to 1953.
