Pretending death at the hands of his friend, Marshal Pat Garrett, (Bob Duncan). Billy the Kid (Anthony Dexter) rides away to live in peace under a new name in a far away frontier town, only to run foul of ruthless empire builder Col. Morgan (Robert Lowery) and his top gun Jack Slade (Sonny Tufts). Billy's the only man who can stop Morgan but he turns down the pleas of help from preacher Jericho Jones (Charles 'Buddy' Rogers), who knows of Billy and his past, newspaper editor Elly McCloud (Madalyn Trahey) and her romantic rival Tonya (Marie Windsor). It's only after the preacher is shot down trying to stop Morgan's killers that Billy straps on his guns. Written by tonyman

Enjoyable minor western
5 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

Anthony Dexter plays a back-from-the-grave Billy the Kid in this odd western about a greedy landowner (slick Robert Lowery) and his right hand man (Sunny Tufts, bravely trying to disguise his New England accent) trying to maintain control over their fiefdom by denying the locals the chance to be annexed by Texas. Billy has had good buddy Pat Garrett pretend to kill him, and has hung up his guns to retire to his old homestead, which--you guessed it--is stuck plum in the middle of this land war. The meek local folks are represented by crusading newspaperman Matt McCloud (Ed Wood regular Kenne Duncan), his beautiful daughter (Madalyn Trahey, who clearly belongs in the 'where are they now?' category), and preacherman Jericho Jones (the appropriately cast Buddy Rogers, who also produced the film). When McCloud is murdered, the townsfolk need a hero to save them...and guess who's available. The Parson and the Outlaw was shot in rich colors which look great, especially when contrasted with the stock footage of wild animals, wagon trains, and fires shoehorned into the feature, and the film also features a very strange soundtrack by Joe Sodja, a Cleveland born banjo player whose score seems to be played on either a zither or a slack key guitar. It's odd to say the least.
