Even B movies would be ashamed of this one
What do you get when you combine poor writing, directing, and acting? You get Cattle Queen. This is a pretty dreadful mix of everything that can go wrong with a B western. The basic plot is bad guys, good girl, good marshal, and both good and bad ex-cons thrown into the familiar, "Let's take over the girl's ranch" plot. There's nothing remotely unique about this movie except for probably the only group Lord's Prayer scene ever filmed for a western. That one had me shaking my head and wondering if they had a contractual requirement for a certain film length and ran dry on ideas. A quick check will show most of the actors had very brief film careers and after watching this, the reasons become apparent. In one place, an actor starts to say the wrong line, corrects himself, and carries on. Guess they didn't want to waste the film for a re-shoot.
This isn't a movie like "Plan 9" that can be watched for the fun value. Even Ed Woods could do better than this.
