By today's standards the film is naive and amateurish, but in 1943, it was one of the most scandalous features Hollywood has made due to Howard Hughes brilliant campaign to exploit Jane Russell's buxum.

Stagey, not that well written, acted or directed (by Howard Hughes) western. More infamous than good.
| Original Score: 3/5

The film would be G-rated today, but at the time, that hint of skin was enough to send people scampering for a little water to put on their brow.
| Original Score: 3/5

Surprisingly, this minor, off-beat western didn't turn out that bad.

Howard Hughes' long-awaited celluloid interpretation of the life, love and legend of Billy the Kid approaches its chore of chronicling with more regard to historical authenticity than most of the countless predecessors of similar theme.

One of the weirdest westerns of all time, reflecting the eccentricities of its producer and credited director, Howard Hughes.
