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."

Alternate Versions

One version includes a title track by Bob Goldstein during the opening sex scene between Viva and Tom Hompertz who was an art student that Andy had met the previous year while lecturing at an art school in California. This version also has opening credits after this scene. In another version, there are no credits and no song - just an assortment of extraneous sounds during the opening scene. See more »

great trash
12 March 2004 | by alohamike99See all my reviews

This movie is great. Joe Dallesandro is young and full-on hot and sexy. The dialogue is pure camp. The performances are funny, goofy, and stupid. Totally crazy bordering on dumb scenes. Similar in style and feel to a pre-Pink Flamingo John Waters low budget film. At times you'll wonder how in the hell they ever got it made, or why they bothered to spend time on the project. Ultimately, you appreciate the time piece that it represents. These artists and the works they produced were the "burning bush" to that era's counter-culture Moses. Irreverent and living out of bounds.
