Belle Starr (1941, Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews)



Very loosely based on a true story, Gene Tierney plays Belle, daughter of a Southern aristocrat. When the invading Yankees take over her land, she vows revenge and heads to Missouri where she marries Confederate outlaw Sam Starr (Randolph Scott), and joins him and his gang in harrying the occupying troops. In fact, the real Belle Starr was a simple outlaw who, with her Cherokee husband, used the confusion of war as an opportunity to line their own pockets; but Irving Cummings’ tough western does at least stick to the truth about her eventual demise.
