The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean is a 1972 western directed by John Huston. Bank robber Roy Bean rides into a small Texas town full of himself and his own toughness, but, minutes later, he finds himself robbed, tied to the back of a horse and facing a lynching. He survives the rope and returns with a gun; shooting his opponents dead, he decides to stay on and sets himself up as judge and ruler of the land, taking a brothel and bar-room as his court and appointing himself as judge. There being "no law west of the Pecos", he is unchallenged, and the hard-pressed Mexican peasants of the area are grateful to him. The tiny, isolated town begins to grow and prosper - but then civilization begins to arrive and the days of the judge's power are numbered.
