  • An Uneven Movie

    The movie begins with Paul Newman playing Billy the Kid as a borderline simpleton who somehow acquires a normal intellect by the end. The first half of the movie is manic, with Billy and his two sidekicks talking loud, acting silly, and laughing at things that are not funny, probably because they are drunk, but ends as some kind of psychological melodrama. The movie would have us believe that we are seeing a demythologized version of this character from the Old West, but it depicts all his killings as being justified, and when he is shot by Pat Garrett, he has no gun in his holster, so he really is not beaten to the draw.

    Competent western, good cast and generally well acted, although some performances a little over the top. Well produced. It has some slow scenes, but overall it held my interest. I didn't feel Paul Newman brought the right depth of the character to the screen.
