Judge Roy Bean V.1

Judge Roy Bean is the classic Western television series of 1955 that is based on one of history’s most colorful characters: Judge Roy Bean. The real Roy Bean was nicknamed the “”Hangin’ Judge”" for notoriously sending dozens of men to the gallows with the motto, “”Hang ‘em first, try ‘em later.”" But despite accounts that say otherwise author Jack Skiles states that although Bean threatened to hang hundreds of men, few were actually sentenced to the gallows, and even then, prisoners were usually allowed to escape their execution.
