Movie Info

Released from prison after serving 16 years of a quarter-century sentence for murder, reformed gunfighter John Wesley Hardin (Rock Hudson) completes a written autobiography, hoping to convince his son (Race Gentry) not to follow a criminal path. In it, he shows how having left home as a young man against the wishes of his strict preacher father (John McIntire) and his first love (Mary Castle), he is hurled into the outlaw life when he shoots a man in self-defense during a card game in a saloon.

Audience Reviews for The Lawless Breed

  • Dec 06, 2010
    I'm not into Westerns made before the 60's or 70's so I expected to either hate The Lawless Breed or it would be just be something to watch but it was way better then I even expected it to be.It had me hooked right from the start all the way to the finish & I can see why it's a Western classic.

    Decent if a bit overdone western competently directed by Walsh. Hudson, right on the cusp of big time stardom with his next film Magnificient Obsession, is solid in the lead. The always reliable Julie Adams is fine if stuck with the thankless part of the whore with a heart of gold who is redeemed by the love of a man. John Ireland appears in a dual role, he's fine in the one, the trusted uncle and a bit much in the other as Hudson's father although with the purple prose he has to deliver who can blame him for trying to make something out of it by going over the top.
