The leads are all capable but none of them seem to be acting in the same movie, as if Hughes couldn't decide what movie he really wanted to make.

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.

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.
