Evil roy slade 1972 part 16
Orphaned and left in the desert as an infant, Evil Roy Slade (John Astin) grew up alone—save for his teddy bear—and mean. As an adult, he is notorious for being the "meanest villain in the West", so he's thrown for quite a loop when he falls for sweet schoolteacher Betsy Potter (Pamela Austin). Nelson L. Stool (Mickey Rooney), a railroad tycoon, along with his dimwitted nephew Clifford (Henry Gibson), attempts to get revenge on Evil Roy Slade for repeatedly robbing him, and sets out to hire legendary retired singing-sheriff Marshal Bing Bell (Dick Shawn) to bring Slade to justice.
Although it was a 1970s made-for-TV movie, many baby boomers consider the film a cult classic. Some popular quotes are "He's a born showman", "A dead neighbor and all six apples", and "Your ruby red lips taste like prairie dust". Its rapid-paced style of humor can also be seen in many later films, most notably Airplane!.
Evil Roy Slade was released on DVD in January, 2008.
