The Outlaw

Jack Buetel as Billy the Kid and Jane Russell as Rio made their film debuts in The Outlaw (1943), directed by Howard Hughes after Howard Hawks left after a week or two to direct Sergeant York.  There’s no telling what the finished product would have been like if Hawks completed the film.  As it stands, there are only a couple of memorable scenes with Jane in an otherwise mediocre western.
