Ed Wood and the Outlaws
For all you cowboy fans . . . . Did you ever wish that you could be in your very own cowboy adventure? As you watched Roy Rogers, or John Wayne, or Bill Boyd, did you ever imagine that you could be like them and get the outlaws . . . . and then ride off into the sunset with the pretty girl? If you only had the money you could hire a director, a good story writer, and get some buddies to act different parts in your movie and you too could be a star! . . . . Well, that is what Johnny Carpenter did. This is the first of four cowboy adventures that he paid for and starred in with the help and advice of his good friend Ed Wood . . . . Fans of movie history will recognize the unique hand of Ed Wood in this production.
As I watched it I imagined that these folk were channeling the ten year old child inside them playing cowboys and outlaws in the back yard. They act like I would have acted when I was ten years old and all the neighborhood kids decided to put on a show . . . . Instead of the one pretty girl that was in virtually every cowboy adventure I’d have three . . . . And all three of the pretty girls would want me more than life itself. But I would be strong, and shove them aside while I beat down the bad guys one by one . . . Even as the Sheriff was after me because he thought I was an outlaw . . . . . . That is how this story plays out, and you know what? . . . . Call me crazy, but I enjoyed watching the movie.
Maybe it was the Ed Wood style . . . . Maybe it was because in the back of my mind I saw myself as Red River Johnny, and this is exactly how I and my friends would have acted if there were cameras around when we were ten years old and playing make-believe in the back yard . . . . Whatever the reason, and I apologize in advance, I actually enjoyed this movie. I will admit that if you haven’t been dropped on your head as a baby you might not have as much fun with it as I did. . . . . But you will never know unless you pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and watch the show.
