4.0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD print on this dvd...unlike some others 25 Mar 2007
By P. D. gray TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I bought this HOLLYWOOD CLASSICS edition of the outlaw (black and white cover) after seeing the quality on some of the others and was pleasantly suprised. Being in the public domain this film is released by a number of companies and most prints are grainy and very poor. I got a copy of this for a couple of pounds and chose Hollywood Classics because I have a couple of other titles by them which are decent and I was very happy to see a superb print was used and that the erotic scenes CUT in the 1940s are included in this dvd (not erotic by todays standards really! more suggestive then anything. Anyway, thought Id let you folks know, bet Im not the only one who wants to know if any of the OUTLAW dvds are decent quality, unlike most this one IS and though their may be one or 2 dearer ones that could be better (may not be) such as the ROAN group one (thats probably good) when it comes to price this is superb value!

3.0 out of 5 stars Harmless fun 24 April 2001
By Epsilon
Format:VHS Tape
A light and frothy western that, in a genre marked by classics still stands up as good entertainment.
The plot, as with most of its type, plays fast and loose with history, pitting Billy the Kid against Doc Holliday. The love triangle that forms between them and the lovely Jane Russell brings a sense of menace to the piece as one knows the two gunslingers will surely face one another off.
The contrast between impetuous but bonny Billy and the wizened Doc offers a pleasing, if predictable, platform for the film. As the two form the bonds of friendship, a tenderness for the characters and growing tension at the underlying love trysts keeps one glued to the screen. The brooding machismo is well countered by Russell's sultry mexican who sets the screen alight with sexual charisma.
Events are speeded by the town sheriff who, unusually for the time, provides the antagonist. His repeated and unreasonable attempts to apprehend Billy lead to the inevitable showdown where the Kid demonstrates his wits are as quick as his shooting irons.
The overall confection is too frothy and light to have a true impact beyond the diversional. For those who like a Western without the emotional/philosophical weights so often attached, you couldn't do better.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Hymn to a Heavenly Body. 29 Nov 2009
By Bob Salter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
"The Outlaw is probably one of the most(in)famous westerns of all time. Produced and part directed by the legendary multi millionaire tycoon Howard Hughes, it unashamedly exploited the natural assets of its leading lady, the 22 year old former dentist's receptionist Jane Russell. It was originally made in 1940 but ran into trouble with the Hay's code, and subsequent censorship. It was finally released to great box office success in 1946, following cuts. The furore it had caused had already gained it notoriety and free publicity, which no doubt contributed to this success. The film was openly sold as a sex western with provocative movie poster artwork celebrating the very female form of Miss Russell in varying states of undress. "What are the two reasons for Jane Russell's success", ran one provocative ad campaign. Crude but effective! Hughes famously designed a special brassiere to enhance Miss Russell's two prize assets. Miss Russell subsequently said that she never wore the bra in question. On the films showing, it would appear that little enhancement was required for what nature had provided in abundance. The film was certainly pretty risqué for its time, even including a bondage scene, but is rather tame by today's standards. Sadly the film is more interesting for the sensation it caused than the quality of the film itself.

The film is a highly fictionalized account of a relationship between those three frontier legends Doc Holliday, played by Walter Huston, Billy the Kid, played by Jack Buetel, and Pat Garrett played by Thomas Mitchell. Doc and the kid become buddies, in between feuding over a horse and a girl. Interestingly the horse is clearly the most valuable object to the men. An idea that would certainly not be acceptable today!

4.0 out of 5 stars A film much improved by colour 25 Mar 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As the saying goes, there are two good reasons for watching this film: Jane Russell! ;-)

I've seen numerous bad reviews of this film but I find it most enjoyable with may good points. It clearly sets out to be a comedy Western but fortunately avoids the inclusion of an unfunny comedy sidekick character who so often mars supposed comedies of this period. All the lead characters (including Rio's aunt) are immensly likeable and in particular Walter Huston has some good dialogue and is a pleasure to watch. This film is unusual for a Western in that it has no real "baddie" charaters (other than a few indians who appear only briefly and in the distance).

There are numerous poor copies of this film around, by far the best B&W version appears to be that released by the Roan group. However there is now available a remastered and colourised version which has excellent picture quality. The colouring has been masterfully done and is muted and appropriate and significantly benefits the film since unlike film noir which work well in B&W most of this film is shot in harsh outdoor lighting conditions.
Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Technical quality a disgrace! 2 Dec 2010
Format:DVD
The story so-so, acting better but what ruined this DVD for me was the quality - or total lack of it - of the copy. I've never seen worse. Elstree Hill should be totally ashamed of themselves. Beware this company!
