Easily a candidate for the worst film ever made. There are not enough bad things to say about this ridiculous and laughable piece of 40's kitsch. What Walter Huston and Thomas Mitchell, the two greatest character actors of the day, were doing in it is one of the enduring mysteries of the world. One can only assume Howard Hughes made it worth their while. But how they kept straight faces through the picture is still an enduring mystery, especially when Mitchell, as Pat Garrett, shoots off a passive Billy the Kid's ears only to fail in his attempt to get the kid to draw his gun. Bad, bad, bad...just bad. If not the worst movie ever made, definitely the worst western. Anyone who paid just to see Jane Russell in Bondage or her giant cleavage at the time sure didn't see much. Well at the time maybe they thought they did.

The Outlaw is infamous for it being Howard Hughes' tribute to his discovery, Jane Russell, and her voluptuous breasts. You would think then that the movie would be centered around Russell, but no, Hughes apparently (and unfortunately) attempted a legit Western.
The movie tells the story of Billy the Kid and his numerous encounters with Doc Holliday and Pat Garrett, as well as his romance with Russell. The Outlaw runs a painfully long two hours and I don't remember much of the plot except that it had a lot to do with honor, a horse, and shooting or not shooting each other.
Jack Buetel, as Billy the Kid, was an attractive male counterpart to Jane Russell but both were new actors and could barely do more than smoulder, though smoulder well they did. Walter Huston did such an admirable job as Doc Holliday that it felt like his talents was wasted on this B movie.
OMG has there been a movie icon hotter than Jane Russell in THE OUTLAW ? I don't think so either . Her smouldering sexuality is the yardstick in which to judge all woman on Earth and the likes of Monroe are second best when compared to this definitive sex goddess . And to think some people describe the likes of Jay-Lo or Abi Titmuss as the most beautiful woman who has ever lived
Unfortunately Ms Russell is the only thing THE OUTLAW is remembered for , which is by no means a bad thing since this is an absolutely terrible movie . From the opening scene featuring a sheriff who gives a performance that resembles a circus clown giving a portrayal of a homo-erotic wet dream to the final credits this movie is an ordeal to sit through . It's badly directed with tons of very poor acting and ridiculous back projection and is so factually incorrect as to be laughable . Did I say it was laughable ? Maybe that's why the musical score has a comedy soundtrack complete with a WAH WAH WAH WAH sound that belongs in a three stooges feature ?
I would have happily given THE OUTLAW one out of ten but because of the presence of Russell we're treated to something of a movie landmark - We're treated to on screen sex . Billy The Kid ravishes Rio Mcdonald in a hay loft 30 years before Clint Eastwood did an identical scene in HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER and in a later scene Rio asks Billy if he'll look at her while he does it , and the audience is left in no doubt what " It " is . Boy this must have caused people to drop dead in their seats on its initial release .
Despite the controversy it's still an awful movie though
