Aroview: Influential version of the Billy the Kid story, with Paul Newman portraying the Kid in an ambiguous light, unstable and homosexually repressed. Has an ironical, violent edge (partly due to a Gore Vidal script) that was to blossom into the dir.’s later epic BONNIE AND CLYDE.

2 stars (Good Try) As a character study it doesn't go to any great depth. The screenplay is a bit stagey and Newman gets the dramatics at times. The set design of the town is well done and the black and white photography is easy on the eye.~tubbs
