The Story of Pretty Boy Floyd [The Daltons: Outlaws]

Clyde Ware (director, screenwriter)
Martin Sheen, Michael Parks, Kim Darby, Joe Estevez (starring)

Burbank, CA: Universal Television / American Broadcasting Company [ABC], 1973. Draft script for the 1974 television movie "The Story of Pretty Boy Floyd," seen here under the title "The Daltons: Outlaws."

As the script's title indicates, a story originally intended to be about the Dalton Gang. For reasons unknown, presumably legal, the script was haphazardly rewritten in the same year to become a sympathetic portrait of Depression-era bank robber Pretty Boy Floyd. The completed film retains some of the Dalton-like elements seen in this draft, including a trio of brothers as main characters. The resulting film starred real-life brothers Martin Sheen and Joe Estevez, with Estevez in his first role.

Set in Oklahoma.
