This is the film debut of the dynamic duo Batman and Robin (Lewis Wilson and Douglas Croft), and they go about their business for 15 episodes.

The real Belle Starr was not a nice person, but her story is romanticized in this film with Gene Tierney as the outlaw.

Tierney is wonderful to look at but certainly is miscast in this one.
