Complete fiction. Not worth it. This time it is not Gene Tierney who plays the part of outlaw Belle Starr, but, just as worse, it's Jane Russell. And they have Belle hanging out with the Dalton gang. Belle was dead by early 1889 and the Daltons in those days of the late 1880s were still working as lawmen. Jane sings several songs, but not very well.
