NOTES

powered by AFI

This film opens with the following written foreword: "In the late 1880s, Belle Starr-the notorious woman outlaw of the American West, and her husband, a Cherokee Indian, died as they had lived-violently. But, from their unholy union a son had been born. His heritage was a defiant, turbulent nature; the stigma of a born criminal, and the contempt of his fellow men...." Although various sources list the character played by Peggie Castle as "Clara Wren," she is called "Julie Wren" in the film.
       The CBCS and the production sheet in copyright records indicate that Sandy Sanders was initially cast as "Earl," but was later replaced by Mike Ragan. The plot synopsis in copyright records and the The Exhibitor review also indicate that the film initially ended with "The Kid" dying in "Julie's" arms. In the viewed print, however, the character dies in the street. For information on films about Belle Starr, consult the entry for Belle Starr in AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1941-50.
