The sheep are coming. The sheep are coming.
Morgan Lane is an Australian man who moves to Montana because he has heard that the opportunity to raise sheep, purchase a ranch, and settle down with a beautiful woman is very common there; however, shortly after arriving he finds himself in the middle of a "sheep war" with a local woman who doesn't want sheep in her town any more. Can Morgan change the woman's mind or will he be killed over sheep?
"This fight is going to be tougher than the last one."
Ray Enright, director of Dames, The Spoilers, Gung Ho, China Sky, Man Alive, Return of the Bad Man, Sin Town, Men of Texas, and The Wagons Roll at Night, delivers Montana. The storyline for this picture is interesting and kind of funny. The characters are well written but the script is fairly mediocre. The acting is above average and the cast includes Errol Flynn, Alexis Smith, Borden Chase, James Brown, Douglas Kennedy, and S. Z. Sakall.
"I could always teach you how to play guitar, amongst other things."
Montana is a film I DVR'd off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) because it starred the great Errol Flynn. The movie is just okay but definitely is a unique western that combines charm, good humor, and a unique plot. Overall, this film isn't great but is definitely worth one viewing if you enjoy westerns or Mr. Flynn.
