Last Boetticher's and Murphy's. I must have seen it eons ago because I remember Murphy's brief appearance. Or maybe it was just what I caught of the movie not bothering with the rest. But one wonders what Boetticher had in mind. Hard to tell. I guess that the parts of Judge Roy Bean, Jesse James and Billy Pimple were those he had started from and then he tied them up with the story of the young one and his bride. Maybe. But anyway the movie doesn't know where it's going all of the time and the duel, with the guns slipping from the hands of the boy, doesn't help. The finale with the new girl arriving in town and starting the cycle again is musty and making little sense of what precedes because there was no story to begin with. 6/10 only because Jory as Bean is not memorable but passable.
