Originally a twenty five hour film made up of shorter film segments. It consists of 83 reels each lasting approximately 33 minutes. A short story odyssey of film designed to be shown with two projectors playing simultaneously.
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
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."

...but I rate it as such because I saw this movie as it should be seen, in a suburban "art house" cinema in the Sacramento suburbs in 1969. An interesting audience; some older men wearing overcoats and a few "sophisticated" couples from the local colleges. And me. I was not exactly sophisticated myself at the time (being only 19), but I laughed out loud a lot, while the rest of the spare audience stared at their shoes. I enjoyed the audience even more than I enjoyed the movie. And I enjoyed the movie a lot.
P.S. Taylor Mead should be made a saint. I would like to see him made a saint not only because he deserves it but also because he might then cancel the insane 10 line rule here. There are movies that don't require 10 lines of commentary, this being one of them.
