It's John Huston week at Trailers from Hell and Josh Olson is kicking it off with the trailer "The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean," starring Paul Newman!

This late career John Huston comedy-western seems to have been an attempt to hitch a ride on the Butch Cassidy/Sundance Kid train to boxoffice glory, but it was a critical and financial misfire. Paul Newman is back, this time as a highly unlikely incarnation of frontier hardass Roy Bean, the self-appointed "judge" known as "the only Law west of the Pecos". Huston seems to be having fun, as does the terrific character-laden supporting cast.
