    Description

    The Outlaw (United Artists, R-1949). One Sheet (27" X 41"). One of the most controversial Westerns ever made, this picture was originally filmed in 1938, but was not finished until 1941, and finally premiered in 1943, as producer/director/billionaire industrialist Howard Hughes took an aggressive stance against the restrictive Hays Code, with the result that the film was denied a release certificate. Conservative censors wanted more cuts than Hughes was willing to make, and he preferred to shelve the film, and take the financial loss that he could well afford, rather than compromise his artistic vision. Looked at today, it's hard to see what the censors objected to, save perhaps for Jane Russell's sexy costumes. The film enjoyed several re-releases during the next several years, obviously benefiting at the box office from the air of scandal that surrounded it. When all is said and done, however, The Outlaw is a fine film, a gripping psychological Western that is well worth watching. Offered here is the very attractive 1949 re-release one sheet. This particular copy had pinholes in the corners, fold wear with crossfold separation, corner creasing, and a small chip in the bottom border, all of which have been addressed with professional restoration. Very Fine- on Linen.
