Description by

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.

Product Description:

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."

Plot Synopsis:

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.
