Movie Details

This video traces the story of perhaps the most famous gunfighter of the West: Billy the Kid. Born in 1859 in the East, much of the gunman's short life is shrouded in mystery. Even his true identity is the subject of debate. But it is certain that the man who became Billy the Kid was a sharpshooter with many deaths notched on his gun belt. He became involved in the cattle baron wars in Lincoln County, NM, where the killings began. At the same time, he was known for his courtesy and loyalty to friends. He outsmarted the law for a long time until his nemesis, Pat Garrett, tracked him down. The film shows why this legendary figure is forever linked with the romantic image of the Wild West. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
