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

I bought this movie because it was filmed near Glacier Park. I loved the scenery but the story was lame and so were the actors playing Blackfeet Indians.Published 20 months ago by Ms. Mith
Barbara Stanwick and Ronald Reagan. Quite a couple. I haven't seen many of Ronald Reagan's movies, but enjoyed this.Published 24 months ago by Amazon Customer
