Trivia

  • Interestingly, the title of this movie promotes a common misconception that was only recently proven untrue. Most people thought Billy the Kid was left-handed because the only known photograph (from 1880) that exists of him seems to show his pistol on his left hip. However, upon closer examination of details such as his beltbuckle and the Winchester rifle, it was realized that the photo is actually reversed as it was created using the tintype photo process. The real Billy the Kid was in fact right-handed.
