Description by OLDIES.com:
The law in Vinegaroon goes like this. Penalty for stealing whiskey: hanging. Penalty for not cutting the judge in on a bank heist: hanging. Penalty for speaking ill of New York actress Lillie Langtry: shooting. Then hanging.
Paul Newman joins director John Huston, screenwriter John Milius and a cast of superb sidewinders to turn the real-life Wild West into a tall tale of a Wilder West in The Life And Times Of Judge Roy Bean. Newman tackles with gusto the title role, a self-made man who proclaims himself the law west of the Pecos, writes admiring letters to Langtry (Ava Gardner) and rides into gun-blazing glory whooping "For Texas and Miss Langtry!" Prepare yourself for some colorful adventures. Because these talents cast long shadows.
Director extraordinaire John Huston brings to life the legendary hanging judge of the Old West, Roy Bean, a mysterious outlaw who sets up shop in a small town and establishes his own law. Paul Newman excels in his title role of His Honor. This western comedy scored an Academy Award nomination for its song "Marmalade, Molasses & Honey."
A comic take on the legendary hanging judge, Roy Bean. Told through a series of vignettes, the story covers different stages of Bean's life, from his arrival in the town of Vinegaroon where he sets himself up as judge, through his romance with a local Mexican girl, to the destruction of the town in a devastating fire.
