BLU RELEASES: Paul Newman stars in THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JUDGE ROY BEAN
John Huston’s 1972 Western classic The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean starring Paul Newman and an all star cast including Victoria Principal, Anthony Perkins, Ned Beatty, Roddy McDowall, Jacqueline Bisset, Tab Hunter, Ava Gardner, Stacy Keach and Michael Sarrazin is coming to Blu Ray this summer from Warner Archive.
Synopsis: Vinegaroon law goes like this. Penalty for stealing whiskey: hanging. Penalty for not cutting the judge in on a bank heist: hanging. Penalty for speaking ill of New York actress Lillie Langtry: shooting. Then hanging.
Paul Newman joins director John Huston, screenwriter John Milius and a cast of superb sidewinders to turn the real-life Wild West into a tall tale of a Wilder West. Newman tackles with gusto the title role, a self-made man who proclaims himself the law west of the Pecos, writes admiring letters to Langry (Ava Gardner) and rides into gun-blazing glory whooping “For Texas and Miss Langtry!” Prepare yourself for some colorful adventures. Because these bright talents cast long shadows.
