CGiii Comment

Living proof that you don't need talent to make a film - you just need loads of cash.
 
Howard Hughes had mountains of the stuff. He produced 25 films and directed 2 - 2 too many.
 
Everything about this film is shambolic...nothing presented on-screen can be equated with talent. The script, the acting, the direction - literally, anyone plucked at random could have done a better job.
 
The homo-subtext...it's not exactly subtext, it's laughable dialogue stuffed full of innuendo and double entendres...the opening scene when Pat and Doc are reunited, it's 'sassy'...hysterical garbage.

The(ir) Blurb...

Newly appointed sheriff Pat Garrett is pleased when his old friend Doc Holliday arrives in Lincoln, New Mexico on the stage. Doc is trailing his stolen horse, and it is discovered in the possession of Billy the Kid. In a surprising turnaround, Billy and Doc become friends. This causes the friendship between Doc and Pat to cool. The odd relationship between Doc and Billy grows stranger when Doc hides Billy at his girl, Rio's, place after Billy is shot. She falls for Billy, although he treats her very badly. Interaction between these four is played out against an Indian attack before a final showdown reduces the group's number.
