Storyline

Better known as "Outlaw" to those of you who watch the TV show "Mystery Science Theater 3000". It's about a beefy blonde and his oily friend Watney. They are teleported by a rose quartz because The Elder (he has no name, Just "The Elder") thinks that Xeno, the Priest by a clearly drunk Jack Palance, has eyes for the throne. Of course, Cabot cares nothing for such intrigue just for the Princess he had "ooh-la-la" with from the previous film "Gor". The Elder is off, though. It's the Queen who wants the throne for her own. Naturally, Watney is seduced by the Queen to implicate Cabot murdering the King, and Cabot and his platinum blonde midget friend escape off into the desert, where they free a slave girl and are just as quickly captured by a bounty hunter. The Princess is forced, meanwhile, by the Queen to fight The Leather Women. Written by Jonah Falcon <jonahnynla@mindspring.com>

Trivia

The final scene is shot in South Africa. If you look at the cars they have the distinctive 'T' at the end of the license plates, indicating Transvaal (now Gauteng) Province. This places the filming somewhere in Johannesburg. See more »

Goofs

When Cabot fights several guards amidst a group of spectators, the fighter is clearly a double for actor Urbano Barberini. See more »

I think Jack Palance fired his agent after this.
10 July 2006 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

My theory: The producers of this film first made the movie "Gor". It only took them four days. Then someone noticed that they still had three days left on their equipment rentals, so they decided to film a second movie. Someone put together a script while on a potty break. They used the same sets, the same props, and much the same cast. The end result was "Outlaw of Gor".

Jack Palance must have been hard-up for money to do this. It ranks up there with the biggest wastes of talent in movie history, right next to Max von Sydow in "Strange Brew" and Sir Lawrence Olivier in "Clash of the Titans".
