His name: William Bonney. His legend: Billy the Kid, the fabled gunslinger of "The Left Handed Gun". The West had never before seen the likes of this Brooklyn-born desperado, a troubled teen who wrote his name in blood on history's pages. And the ganre had never before seen a performance like that of Paul Newman. He displays a complex twitchy moodiness that captures the killer's half-boy, half-man nature.
