Picks and Pans Review: Belle Starr
CBS (9-11 p.m. ET)
Was Starr the romantic adventurer of dime-novel fame or the no-'count slattern of revisionist historians? The usually skillful Elizabeth Montgomery plays the fabled female outlaw of the Old West with deadpan indifference, as if she couldn't decide. Her relationship with her son and Indian husband, her affiliation with the James Gang and even her mysterious death remain uninvolving. Like the 1941 film character created by Gene Tierney, this TV-movie Belle deserves a gong.
