Cattle Queen of Montana

Overview

Filmed on location at Montana's Glacier National Park, Cattle Queen of Montana makes excellent use of the diverse talents of Barbara Stanwyck and Ronald Reagan. Stanwyck is cast as Sierra Nevada Jones, who hopes to stake her claim in the cattle business despite opposition from hostile land barons.

Overview

Filmed on location at Montana's Glacier National Park, Cattle Queen of Montana makes excellent use of the diverse talents of Barbara Stanwyck and Ronald Reagan. Stanwyck is cast as Sierra Nevada Jones, who hopes to stake her claim in the cattle business despite opposition from hostile land barons. She is helped along by government agent Farrell, even though he's officially on hand to find out who's been inciting the local Indian tribes into attacking the whites. Lance Fuller delivers a well-balanced performance as Colorados, a college-educated Indian chief who hopes to bring peace to the land. Long a fixture of TV's Late Late Shows, Cattle Queen of Montana was briefly reissued theatrically when Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Despite the presence of the formidable Barbara Stanwyck in the title role, Cattle Queen of Montana is only a fair little Western. Stanwyck, of course, is an asset in just about anything, and here she is the major draw. Possessed of the rare ability to convey glamour while remaining down-to-earth and to be both vulnerable and as hard as a rock, she puts all these qualities to good use, trying to breathe life into a tired screenplay that features little of interest. Stanwyck manages to make the clich├ęd script come to life about as often as is possible; when she's offscreen (which, fortunately, is not very often), things don't fare so well. Co-star Ronald Reagan is bland, Gene Evans lacks the menace and authority that this villainous part requires, and the rest of the cast is no better. Director Allan Dwan does what he can with the material, and every now and then he manages to bring in a small, but welcome. Surprise. He's aided by cinematographer John Alton, who takes full advantage of the location lensing. It doesn't make Cattle a good movie, but it does take the pressure off of Stanwyck for a while.
