THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JUDGE ROY BEAN (1972)

ORIGINAL ASPECT RATIO - 1.78:1, 16 X 9 WIDESCREEN

Vinegaroon law 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. Newman tackles with gusto the title role, a self-made man who proclaims himself the law west of the Pecos, writes admiring letters to Langry (Ava Gardner) and rides into gun-blazing glory whooping “For Texas and Miss Langtry!” Prepare yourself for some colorful adventures. Because these bright talents cast long shadows.

Wow, WAC is batting a thousand.
For those who miraculously missed it, WAC is also releasing "Billy Budd"; and now we also get "Judge Roy Bean".
I could list what gets me charged about this film;
but, then again, it's probably the same exact list that everyone else most likely shares.
Full Price, Pre-Order and no hold-backs while awaiting the reviews; and that goes for either film.:)

Another paul newman movie ?? : ( c' mon already.
It's all in how you look at things, Mr. Bond,
as this remains a Huston brew.
Now, spice it up with some Jackie Bisset.
Perhaps a pinch of Principal and Perkins, too.
Monsieur Maurice is apt to start with Bisque.
So add a bit of music and even some molasses crude.
Now, slowly stir, this soon to be meal with us;
for Senor Rick - 'tis a script - by Mister Milllius.
Now bring it to a boil; then simmer and stew.
Let it cool. Let it stand. As we are drawing to our near.
Take a sip, take a chew;
there's nothing you'll find Jarre-ing here.
Not a noodle western, by any given means;
yet more home grown,
than any of Newman's Own.
So have charity; whilst the other kids cheer,
you're certain to enjoy it;
WAC a doodle,
WAC a doodle,
WAC a doodle on thru.:thumbs-up-smiley:

I swear I've seen the first 3/4 of this movie 10 times on late night TV, but fairly recently it was on and I watched and for the life of me I couldn't
remember ever seeing the last 15 minutes

It's that kind of movie. Doesn't hang together. The other Huston-Newman movie, THE MACKINTOSH MAN, is more even, but also unmemorable.

I love the movie and pretty much all of it right to the birth scene was more than familiar, but 5-10 minutes later nothing clicks.
The whole last scene worked for me even then, but it was like seeing it for the first time when Ava showed up.
