Title: Pat Garrett, Billy the Kid and Kris Kristopherson

Description: Today we are joined again by actor, scholar and Wild West fanatic Jacob Herr to discuss on of the most compelling movies about the legendary Wild West Gunslinger Billy the Kid. The 1973 film “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid” reimagined the story of Billy the Kid. There was almost as much drama behind the scenes of the movie as there was on the screen as director Sam Peckinpaw battled with the actors, producers and film executives in order to make the movie and tell the story of Billy the Kid the way he felt it needed to be told.
