The Devil and Leroy Bassett (1973)

American National Enterprises
Directed by Robert E. Pearson
My rating: 1.5 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

Three country hick brothers in New Mexico devise a plan to break an Indian friend out of jail. They go on the lam after killing a few police officers. The pursuit takes them deep into the New Mexico mountains, ultimately leading to the brothers confronting the police in a shootout. The Indian escapes into the woods on foot but is pursued by the police on horseback. Low budget production has jarring violence but is also played for laughs. The interaction between the three brothers is particularly entertaining. John F. Goff as Leroy is unhinged as the psychotic evangelical Christian and leader of the group. His goofy brother Wilbur is played by prolific character actor George Buck Flower. Perfect film for that six pack night with your drinking buddies.
