This film is based on the colourful, larger than life character of the title. Judge Roy Bean was a real life character, who was an outlaw himself for many years and narrowly escaped hanging on one occasion. As a result of this he was left with a permanent rope burn scar on his neck. In the early 1880s he settled in the small isolated outpost of Vinegaroon, Pecos County, Texas. He later renamed it Langtry after the famous actress Lillie Langtry whom he idolized. From his saloon he dispensed summary justice in a somewhat erratic fashion. He styled himself "The only law west of the Pecos". After an eventful life he died in 1903 after a heavy drinking bout. He somehow got to the grand old age of 78.

Bean was ideal movie material and many films have used his character with varying degrees of authenticity. In 1938 the famous old Hollywood cowboy Harry Carey played him in "The Law West of Tombstone". Walter Brennan then played him alongside Gary Cooper in the very good "The Westerner"(40). Later in 1969 he was portrayed by an excellent Victor Jory in Budd Boetticher's playful "A Time For Dying"(69). There were a number of other less worthy films that also depicted him. In 1972 the legendary film director and raconteur John Huston decided to make a film very loosely based on his life.

The film itself does exactly what it says on the can, and depicts Bean's life and times from his bloody arrival in lawless Vinegaroon, to his later return to a Texas of oil wells and motor cars. He has three loves in his life. Lillie Langtry whom is never destined to meet, his beautiful Mexican mistress and a bear left to him by the eponymous Grizzly Adams, played in a lovely little cameo by Huston himself.

It took me ages to find this and my husband was thrilled to bits with it. A film well worth seeing, one of Paul Newmans more unusual characters but one that he made his own.

I'd recommend a buy of the NTSC especially for US films if you want the full length...This film may have been shown in 1976 in the UK if not earlier and stands a clut western rather than as a classic serious western and perhaps Newman was a trifle laconic for the role but the man himself is a historic character upon whose life the screenplay is founded and no doubt it palys free...I have to say that Stacy Keach's funny cameo as Bad Bob somewhat outshines the rough comic melodrama of the rest fo the film and adds a quirky and bloodthirsty streak into the film.It's roughly two hours and good fun and an unusual western worthy of attention as it overlaps into the wtwentieth century in the same way the The Wild Bunch or The balld of Cable Hogue does.The Wild Bunch - 2 Disc Special Edition [DVD]The Ballad of Cable HogueThe Long Riders [DVD]

As a Paul Newman fan, I wondered why I had never actually seen this movie, I certainly didn't miss much. Everyone has their own taste, but to me, this was a lot of rubbish. The plot was weak, the dialogue corny and I find it hard to think why he got involved in this one,.
