The Outlaw is a 1943 Western directed by Howard Hughes as well as uncredited Howard Hawks (who was replaced midway through filming) that fictionalizes the last days of Doc Holliday, played by veteran actor Walter Huston. In the film, Holliday meets up with Billy the Kid (Jack Buetel), both known to each other by reputation. They end up quarreling over a horse and a woman named Rio (Jane Russell) and end up uniting against Holliday's friend, Lincoln County Sheriff Pat Garrett (Thomas Mitchell). The film takes "artistic license" to a new level with its fiction but is better known for the controversy surrounding its production (including an incident involving Russell and the wearing of a specially-engineered brassiere) rather than its actual content.
The following weapons were used in the film The Outlaw:
Single Action Army
All of the characters in the film, including Doc Holliday (Walter Huston), Billy the Kid (Jack Buetel), Rio McDonald (Jane Russell), Pat Garrett (Thomas Mitchell), the Stranger (Gene Rizzi), and Fred the drunk carry Single Action Army revolvers. Doc and Billy each carry a set of two nickel SAAs with white grips.
Colt New Army
In some scenes requiring a quickdraw, Doc Holliday (Walter Huston) or Billy the Kid (Jack Buetel) draw a Colt New Army & Navy or a similar double-action revolver rather than their SAAs. Since the film takes place in 1881 and the first New Army model was introduced in 1889, the use of these revolvers is anachronistic.
Winchester Model 1892
Lincoln County Sheriff Pat Garrett (Thomas Mitchell) takes a Winchester Model 1892 when he goes in search of Billy the Kid in New Mexico. Doc Holliday (Walter Huston) also has one, using the sight to snipe Garrett's deputies in the posse.
