The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean (1972) DVD9
Upon arriving in the tiny West Texas town of Vinegaroon, Roy Bean draws a moustache on a wanted poster of himself, marches into a saloon, and declares his presence. He is immediately robbed, beaten within an inch of his life, tied to a horse and dragged out into the prairie, then left to die. Bean survives, and is given water and a gun by Marie Elena (Victoria Principal), a young woman in the village. In an apocalyptic act of revenge, Bean returns to the saloon and slaughters everyone inside. Finding an enormous law book, Bean appoints himself Judge and, having already staked his claim in blood, turns the saloon into his home and courthouse. The community prospers as Judge Bean dispenses his own brand of frontier justice upon strangers passing by, robbing or killing anyone who tries to make their way through the town. But when Maria dies, Bean's old associates begin to turn on him, one at a time (in response to his constant harping on their wives, many of whom were former prostitutes) and Bean is forced to leave. Years later, Bean rides back into town, to save his daughter from trouble...
