Storyline

Young William Bonney inspires the faith and friendship of Pat Garrett, despite Bonney's violent past. Garrett believes that Billy can make a better life for himself, a sentiment shared by rancher John Tunstall, who befriends Billy and gives him a job. Billy falls in love with Tunstall's niece, Nita, but this outrages Tunstall's foreman, Bob Ollinger, who exposes Billy's past as outlaw Billy the Kid. When Billy's new friend, John Tunstall, is murdered, he goes on a rampage of revenge, and Pat Garrett, now a lawman, is forced to go after his young friend.

Forgettable western
22 October 1998 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Another historical(???) piece brought to us by the same bunch that foisted "Jesse James vs. the Daltons" on us. This one has a slightly better cast. Title tells all.
