Dorothy Lamour and George Montgomery
Dorothy Lamour and George Montgomery starred in the 1948 drama-romance Lulu Belle. The cast is the thing that makes this movie really work, in my opinion. The ambitious plot is pretty busy and a weaker cast wouldn’t be able to make it all come together so well. There’s just a certain measure of magic in this cast that makes what could have been a pretty good movie become a really good movie.
In addition to Dorothy Lamour and George Montgomery (who are always, always exceptional), the cast includes Otto Kruger, Glenda Farrell, Greg McClure, and Albert Dekker – all extraordinary stars.
I was very pleasantly surprised to find that Lulu Belle is available on Prime Video. I can’t wait to watch it again – it has been too many years since I watched Dorothy Lamour in this colorful role. The movie is also available on dvd (see Lulu Belle on dvd and Blu-ray on Amazon) – for those of us who love to collect our own dvds, creating a movie library no one can snatch away from us!
