My Favorite Westerns

A Celebration of Western Movies … Pardner!

Official Poster

I was laid low by a nasty flu for over a week. I’m not over it yet, but I think I’ll feel well enough to do some work here.

Mainly, I’ve continued research on Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. It’s worth noting that Pekinpah’s version of ‘the kid’ saga does pretty well follow the actual historical chain of events.  So those who often criticize many western movies for historical inaccuracy should take note. There are some liberties taken, such as Kristopherson’s age (32) compared to ‘the kid (20).

I’ve included a link to the Wiki which details the events. But with or without any such inaccuracies this would have been a fine piece of Western film making.
