Birth of a Legend: Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County War The story of Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County War has become an American legend, and there have been movie versions by the dozen based on his short and violent life. But somehow or other the movies always get it wrong. That's why there has never been a definitive Billy the Kid movie. Until Now Director Andy Wilkinson, determined to tell the story the way it happened, called for a script by Frederick Nolan, the world's leading authority on Billy the Kid and the ruthless struggle for power and money the Kid got caught up in. The Result is a Revelation "Birth of a Legend" is a story of the old West. The Santa Fe Ring plotting death as casually as smoking a cigar; John Chisum staring death in the face as he tells a young newspaperman how it all began. An Englishman John Tunstall, riding unwittingly to his sudden, brutal death on a lonely mountainside, and Billy the Kid, standing at his friend's graveside and vowing to hunt down and kill the men who murdered him. Bonus Feature "Birth of a Movie", features an extensive and detailed conversational interview by director Andy Wilkinson of author and scriptwriter Frederick Nolan, who draws upon the nearly fifty years of research he has devoted to the subject to fully and honestly answer questions on every aspect of Billy the Kid's life and death and the labyrinthine political treachery that lit the fuse of the ticking time bomb that exploded into the Lincoln County War. The Betrayal - Part Two "Birth of a Legend" is just the beginning; in Part Two, going before the camera soon, director Andy Wilkinson will bring the rest of the story to the screen with the same respect for history.
