It is the turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth century in Vinegaroon, Texas, west of the Rio Pecos, an area known for its general lawlessness. Due to an incident that nearly kills him, Roy Bean appoints himself a judge for the region. He establishes his residence and his court in the former parlor and brothel of the city. He assumes that he has the moral authority and knowledge of the laws of Texas to become a judge, which was his obvious disregard for these laws up to this point. He presides with a book of Texan laws in front of him and his fan-worship of actress Lillie Langtry in the form of large posters of her behind him. He also appoints a group of outlaw colleagues to his marshals, who work exclusively under his direction. During this trial, he is assisted by a young Mexican woman named Maria Elena, who saved him from the fatal incident. She lives, as it should, in the little hut next to the drawing-room, instead of with him in the drawing-room. He is known to announce his form of largely illegal justice, which usually results in the person in court convicted of loose judgments and hung up in front of the salon. While a strange and interesting selection of people (and some non-humans) go through Vinegaroon and Roy's life, he is able to largely build the city to his liking. However, since he has many critics, the question is how long will he last before someone hits the big target that lies on his back.
Drama Movie made in 1972, was a very famous film after release in cinema. I don't want to spoil you the full plot of the film, but I will tell you now it's a very good movie to watch online. In the comparison to latest cinema movies, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean is doing really good work. Of course I also remember about the top hollywood cast. John Huston with The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean and his last few other movies created something like a new era of the cinematography. After you watch whole movie, you can also find other movies directed by the same person by clicking the director name.
