I had been looking for a copy of this video for years. I had first viewed this movie while I was in high school and it was a movie made for TV. It is probably the funniest movie I have ever watched. When I watched it again, I was laughing so hard, I fell off the couch! My daughter enjoyed watching it, and so have all of the people who have watched it. I am now waiting for this to come out on DVD, so that I can buy another copy, in case my VHS doesn't get returned or simply wears out.
This movie was made in a time when family-viewing films were more common. I would place it into the same category of many of the Disney films of the era.
A gunfighter is attempting to reform himself for the love of his life. The Evil Roy Slade trys real, real hard to become a member of society. My favorite scenes are when he becomes a shoe salesman. People working with the buying public will understand his frustration with the customers.
Again, a wonderful, funny look at life for the entire family.

To the uninitiated this film may seem a bit dated--after all it's a made-for-TV film from the early '70s, how good can it be? In this case, outstanding! I was a senior in high school when I saw "Evil Roy Slade" in its debut on NBC in the Spring of 1972. Coming just as "Monty Python" was beginning to be aired in the U.S. and before Mel Brooks hit the screen with "Blazing Saddles" ('73) and "Young Frankenstein" ('74) there had been little of this sort of zany humor since the days of Ernie Kovacs. And as a TV flick, it had to stay within the bounds of what was then proper without the language and sexual innuendo which the Python crew and Brooks could play for admittedly hysterical--but crude and non-family-friendly laughs. The numerous great lines ("9 to 5 job? The only job I like is 9 men, robbin' 5!")and John Astin's creation of "Evil Roy" and Dick Shawn's "Bing Bell" took on a life of their own among my friends and I back then. Last week my two sons (10 and 8) and I watched the film for the first time--and the same thing has happened: "Is that the door?" "key-chonk-a-tonk," "See my new doll house," and "Cain't walk without mah guns!" are part of our daily banter now. A great comedy, ahead of its time, that you can actually view with your kids!

Evil Roy is simply greatness. I first saw the film in the 70's and like many of the other reviewers, my close friend and I would scour the TV listings every week trying to find when it was coming on again. For years we hardly ever had a conversation that someone wouldn't insert at least one SLADE quote. The movie obviously achieved cult status but it seemed it never became known to the true masses. After college I went to work for the Federal Reserve and met people from all across the U.S. One day in casual conversation I dropped a Slade quote and this girl from Chicago reached in her purse and produced an EVIL ROY SLADE fan club card (they started the club at her college back home). My fifteen minutes of fame came when I actually got to personally speak (albeit via the telephone) to Evil Roy when he came to Dallas to promote the Adams Family release. It was a call-in talk show and the first three callers all wanted to speak to Evil Roy Slade not Gomez Adams. Although I think everyone would agree we all liked Gomez, EVIL ROY is true greatness.

My husband and I saw this movie shortly after we were married. It was probably around 1973-74 (we married in 1970). We never laughed so hard over a movie like this one! After seeing it, it seemed like it would play on New Years Eve for the next two to three years. Since then, we have looked every week under cable and TV Guide listings, but it is never there. We checked books on what is available to buy, it wasn't there either. We have asked every video store if they can get it, and the answer is always "it's not in our book, sorry!" Our kids are now 22 and 23 and have never gotten to see it but have heard about it their entire lives. FINALLY, WE GET TO SEE IT AGAIN!!! While checking e-mail I thought it would be a long shot to find it, but hit the jack pot in no time at all! Thanks for having such a vast library of movies. I can't wait to get it in the mail. Again, thanks and I wish everyone could have the opportunity to see this movie. John Astin is so funny in this movie, more than any others we have seen, and all of them are great too. This is comedy beyond belief. ! bye

"Evil Roy Slade" -- Just to mention the title brings an immediate reaction to those who know just how funny this movie is. <grin>
I can spend time naming the stars, commenting on the story line, or the character development of each and every character but I believe the other reviews have these areas covered quite adequately. Besides, "Evil Roy" is 'much more' for me -- far beyond the actors or their characters.
I first heard of this movie from my oldest brother who was on leave in '73. It was airing late at night. After he woke me he said, "Don't go to sleep. You're going to love this. Everyone has been going nuts about this movie!" I watched that night and he was right. And I never looked back. A few years later, while I was overseas, someone passed the word down the line: "Evil Roy Slade is on Armed Forces TV, tonight!" You should have heard the hoops and hollering. And of those who never saw "Evil Roy", they were bombarded by others saying "Oh, man! You're going to LOVE Evil Roy!" I never expected a reaction like that about a TV western/comedy. I watched "Mr. Evil" with about fifty others that night and it was just as fresh as the first night I saw it back in '73. It was a blast.
Probably the best compliment I can give to this show is this: After watching "Evil Roy" that cold December night in Korea . . . when things seemed at their very worst someone would quote a line from this movie (any character) and it never failed to bring laughs. And it continues to do so. That, in a nutshell, is what this movie is all about.
