Storyline

In the wild wild west, Ramona Alvarez and her perpetually stoned nurse run into five gay cowboys. The seven members of the party desire a handsome male drifter, except for the transvestite sheriff, who can't be bothered about anything but his outfit. All hot & bothered at this point, the cowboys rape Ramona, who subsequently has sex with the drifter and, in the afterglow of sex, wants to form a suicide pact with him. The drifter rejects her new desire and rides off into the sunset with another man. Written by Tummy AuGratin

Trivia

The film was originally conceived as a western version of William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," to be called "Ramona and Julian". In the fall of 1967, while on a lecture tour in Tucson with Andy Warhol, Paul Morrissey had mentioned to the press that their next film would be a western filmed on location in Tucson and would be called "The Unwanted Cowboy."

Taylor Mead, you're my heeero.
4 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

I thought it was pretty funny, a little dirty, but funny. Taylor Mead's so giddy and girlish, he really makes the movie worth watching. Joe Dallesandro has a small role, but does a hilarious dance scene with Mead! The songs are good too! Who knew Eric Emerson could sing?
