Although Ed has been listed as everything from co-plotter to having fully ghost-written Lawless Rider, the only thing he is known to have done is serve as associate producer (with Alex Gordon). The haphazard nature of the plot and the endless padding are certainly very Ed-like, but the dialogue has none of Ed's sparkle, so I don't believe he had a hand in the actual script.
Given the probable limited nature of Ed's involvment, The Lawless Rider is for completists only.
THE LAWLESS RIDERI can find no reference to a mass market release of this movie.
OUTLAW MARSHALLThe working title of The Lawless Rider. I am aware of no release under this name, although it did appear on Ed's resume.
