It tells the story of the eponymous outlaw, EvilRoy Slade (John Astin), who gets a lot of enjoyment robbing everyone in town and killing people just for pleasure. And this was all because he was abandoned as an infant and left to fend for himself in the wild after an attack from Indians. His lawless life suddenly begins to change when he falls for a beautiful schoolteacher named Betsy Potter (Pamela Austin). By that time, Slade begins to question his position as being a no-good rotten outlaw. To make matters worse, he is also the intended target of Nelson L. Stoole (Mickey Rooney), a railroad tycoon, and his {{Dumb Muscle}} nephew, Clifford (Henry Gibson), as revenge for Slade robbing him previous times. Also wanting to turn in Slade is a retired former marshal by the name of Bing Bell (Dick Shawn).
