A no account outlaw establishes his own particular brand of law and order and builds a town on the edges of civilization in this farcical western. With the aid of an old law text and unpredictable notions Roy Bean distinguishes between lawbreakers and lawgivers by way of his pistols. Written by

When they bury the bear the gravestone indicates the bear was about 3 years old and died in 1899. That would mean that the visit to the town by Grizzly Adams would have occurred around 1896 or so. That would be impossible since Grizzly Adams died in 1860. See more »
Rev. Mr. LaSalle:
The first time I saw Roy Bean, he was set on killing me. Thought I was the Devil, come to take him. It was an understandable thought, considering all the carnage that he had so recently brought forth.

This is my all time favorite movie not because it's the greatest movie ever made, but because it struck somekind of a chord in me when I was young. It's the only movie I have ever owned. This movie has the ability to make you laugh and cry. It has a hero, a bully, a lovable animal, a beautiful woman that our hero can attain and one that he can't. It makes statements about how friendship inspires loyalty and how greed inspires treachery. It takes you from one emotion to the next but ultimately leaves you with hope.
I was only 13 or 14-years-old when I first saw this movie, and I still go through the same emotions when seeing it now that I'm 41. The review I read in this site was pretty good, although I must note some disagreement with the reviewer's criticism of the musical scene in the middle of the movie. I thought that was perfect, and the song sung by Andy Williams, "Marmalade, Molasses and Honey", is one of my all time favorites. This movie is not for everyone, but its quirkiness never ceases to put a smile on my face and put me in a good mood.
