The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean: Judge Roy Bean’s combination saloon, courthouse and opera house: the real Judge Roy Bean Visitor Center, Langtry, Texas

Mythmaking script by ultra-rightist poseur John Milius, saved by director John Huston’s quirky treatment.

The real town of Langtry, where eccentric Judge Bean embodied the ‘law west of the Pecos’, is named in honour of Bean’s obsession, singer Lily Langtry.

For the movie, the town was reconstructed in the Arizona desert near Tucson.

What you'll want to visit, though, is Bean’s unique combination of saloon, courthouse and opera house, which has been preserved as the Judge Roy Bean Visitor Center.

Langtry is on US 90, southwest Texas near the Mexican border.
