On the trail of his stolen horse, Doc Holliday (Walter Huston) befriends the notorious Billy the Kid (Jack Beutel). Doc's old friend Pat Garrett (Thomas Mitchell) is now a sheriff and wants to arrest Billy for murder, but Doc helps his new friend flee to a hideout, where Billy meets Rio (Jane Russell), a beautiful young woman who soon finds herself falling in love with him. As Doc and Billy try to evade the law, they run into a series of adventures involving Indians and gunfights, culminating in an epic showdown. This story of the legendary gunslingers veers sharply from historical reality, but the result is a fun and engaging classic that stands out from other Westerns of the era. Under the control of director Howard Hughes, the film also serves as a tribute to the charms of its leading lady, 19-year-old Jane Russell, whose cleavage was featured prominently in the film's publicity. As a result, THE OUTLAW became one of the most controversial films of the 1940s, leading to a protracted battle with censors that only added to the film's allure.
