Academy Award winner Paul Newman stars as the legendary gunman Billy the Kid in this film adaptation of Gore Vidal's play. Staying closer to historical truth than the legends developed, this western drama follows young William Bonney, an illiterate murderous thug as he's befriended for the first time in his short life by the rancher Tunstall (Colin Keith-Johnston). But when Tunstall is killed, Bonney goes on a killing spree fueled by his uncontrollable rage that has gone on to become legendary in the lore of the American West.

Penn's first film, it is in many ways a key stage in the development of the Western.
