The Outlaw (5-Feb-1943)

Director: Howard Hughes

Writer: Jules Furthman

Musical Direction: Victor Young

Producer: Howard Hughes

Keywords: Western

Billy the Kid interacts with Doc Holliday and Pat Garrett. Notable as the debut of the smouldering 19-year-old Jane Russell and her cleavage as Rio. Billy the Kid romances Rio, but both Holliday and Garrett seem caught in their own homoerotic triangle over the much younger Billy the Kid. Victor Young's adaptation of Tchaikovsky's Pathetique symphony makes for one of the worst scores ever to adorn a motion picture.
