Five Odd Actors Who Played Billy The Kid

Billy The KidSometimes movies and television don’t pick the wisest choices in movie actors to fulfill the roles.  Take Billy the Kid for instance.  The real Billy the Kid was (possibly) named William Bonney.  At least that’s the name most people credited him with having, but no one knows for sure.  He’s known to have killed anywhere from 4-21 men before he was gunned down by Pat Garrett at the age of 21.  So when you think of an actor playing him, you probably think he should be a young…I don’t know….”kid”?

myFiveBest Opinions: Historical Western Films

gunfighterEveryone loves a western.  American cinema was founded upon the cowboy and his journey over the plains of our nation.  Screen legends, such as Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and John Wayne are icons to the men who pioneered the West.  The problem with trying to find a historical western is that 99% are stories.  Here is a list of westerns that hold some semblance of the truth.  Feel free to add your own choices to the list.
