Evil Roy Slade (1971)
An All-Star Cast Headlines This Hilarious Western Spoof.
|An all-star cast headlines this hilarious made-for-television movie spoof on the western genre. John Astin (The Addams Family) plays Evil Roy Slade, the meanest villain in the West. The good guys do not have a chance, as Evil Roy turns the tables on the classic western story of good triumphing over evil. Western veteran Pat Buttram narrates, and Mickey Rooney, Dick Shawn, Henry Gibson, Edie Adams, Pamela Austin, Milton Berle, Pat Morita, Ed Begley, Jr., Dom Deluise and Penny Marshall co-star.|
Editor's NoteEvil Roy Slade (Astin) is the roughest, toughest, meanest train robber the West has ever known, but when he falls in love with a beautiful young woman, he's transformed from a villainous thug to a loving family-man. Meanwhile, archenemy Nelson Stool (Rooney) and Marshal Bing Bell (Shawn) are unconvinced the ex-villain has gone clean, and continue to pursuit Slade in the hopes that he'll "slip-up." Silly jokes, sight gags, and campy humor aplenty in this comedy for the whole family.
