Jane Russell--wow! Apparently the original negatives are not available, but if this is from a print, it's better than the last two or three I've purchased--and discarded. This is a keeper, until, and if, there's one from the original negative.

There's no need to recap the plot's synopsis, therefore I'll focus the bulk of my observations on the DVD itself, since this is the information I look for in Amazon reviews of items of this type.
This review covers the edition released by The Roan Group. The disk does fulfill its promise of a 117 minute running time, including credits. A running time of two hours is cited in the trailer, but I don't know that I'd call this an accurate indication of the existence of a more complete version; 117 minutes is awfully close to 120. I don't see any evidence of the extras mentioned in Amazon's editorial, including the letterboxing of credits, although I had no trouble reading them all on my TV set. I suspect the reviewer is referring to a different release, although I can't imagine which one.
Roan mastered this release from what must have been a very high-quality print because it shows very few signs of age. The sound is fine--very clear with no need of volume cranking (often the case on older films, in my experience). The movie is an entertaining male-bonding romp with great performances all around and Miss Russell looks fabulous. Frankly, there wasn't a boring moment in the whole film--no complaints there. Another nice touch is its keep case; I'm really annoyed with the cheesy snap cases in which so many new releases are packaged.
The lack of extras, however, is very disappointing, even for a budget release. One has the option to view the trailer or the film by means of a barely visible prompt, PERIOD. There's no menu, so one can't navigate the specific chapters (although they're numbered on the back cover of the case), and there are no subtitles ("Japanese?"). There's NOTHING but the movie and the trailer.

Among the infinite versions of the legend of Billy the Kid, this one is by far the most extraordinary. And I say it for two reasons. The first one is that the film combines three essential elements always present in a good script: love, friendship and treason. Everything's fine between Doc Holliday and Pat Garrett, until Billy the Kid comes up. He steals Doc's horse and, despite of this, Doc becomes his friend and protector, which makes Pat swear to God we will catch both of them. Between the gunmen is the lovely Rio (Jane Russell, in an unforgettable performance), a character too sexy and too provocative for a mid-forties western. Her presence is a guarantee of a bizarre and unexpected love triangle. The second reason is, since this story is a legend, everything is possible, even changing the obvious ending. Maybe you'll get disappointed with the conclusion but certainly it will make you reflect upon the oldest dilemma of mankind: the good and the evil.

What can I say about "The Outlaw"? It's really, really silly and I really, really like it. The acting is bad, the music is worse, and the camera angles are downright hilarious. I'm not sure how much of the dialogue was intended to be funny, but I'm sure a lot of the bigger laughs were unintentional. Nevertheless, it's a goofy, friendly little movie that moves along at a brisk pace and is nothing if not entertaining.
The plot? Well, you see, Pat Garrett and Doc Holliday used to be best friends, that is until Billy the Kid rode into town, and now Doc spends all his time hanging out with Billy which makes Pat pretty darn jealous. There's also Rio (played by the scantily clad Jane Russell) who used to be Doc's girl before Billy stole her, although neither Doc nor Billy care much about that. They do argue a lot about who owns Doc's horse, but otherwise they're pretty tight, riding around together, humilating Pat, and just generally having a good time. All good things must come to an end, however, and after a couple of shootouts and almost shootouts our hero(?) rides off into the sunset, proud possesor of both the horse and the girl.
"The Outlaw" isn't a classic by anybody's standards (unless you count the classically silly "Gun Switching" scene), but it is fun in a weird kind of way. Gazillionare Howard Hughes tried for years to have it released while he battled the censors (unlike some other reviewers, I do think the film is pretty racy for its time) and there's still about five minutes missing. You can sometimes tell where footage was cut, such as a scene where Doc goes to hug Billy (really) and after a jump they're suddenly talking about something else. Uh huh.
Anyway, check this out if you're a fan of Jane Russell or over the top cheese.

This movie was good for when it was made. I liked that it had 2 DVDs with it, one that was black and white and the other that had color added.

After having been let down by the quality of several of Legend Films' allegedly restored classics ('SHE' two-disc edition is an exception), I took a calculated risk with its release of Howard Hawks/Hughes' infamous curio 'The Outlaw' primarily to hear star Jane Russell's commentary. First, to the commentary: while there are one or two amusing anecdotes and a few scraps of interesting trivia thrown around, disappointingly the then-octogenarian (ca. 2005) Russell seems only marginally interested in-- or perhaps capable of-- remembering many details about the shoot, the cast, directors or producer, so one listen is probably sufficient for most film buffs. Second, the distributor's claims of a full restoration once again have been (to put it kindly) exaggerated, as the transfer is not even as sharp as the public-domain version I currently own (Triton's 'Best of the West' double feature paired with 'Santa Fe Trail') with inferior audio. The movie itself draws 3 stars for its wonderfully miscast lineup of great character actors, its juicy cinematic reputation and its tortured but fun take on the Doc Holliday/Pat Garrett/Billy the Kid saga; presentation, on the other hand, merits about 2 1/2, aided in part by a not-half-bad attempt at colorization.
