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.
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.

Great. I watched it when it first came out. But the expensive LED bulbs I bought from you for my new truck did not last, They are burnt out all ready.Published 6 months ago by Steven Bozman
The movie came very quickly . In very good order and works well.
A very funny older type of movie with some great scenes and comedy.
How time flies. We remember so many scenes and catch phrases, but seeing the movie again is not as good as our memories. However, still a nice time to pass time.Published on May 7 2012 by laleduc
