I just got thru watching Young guns 1&2 and I was trying to explain to a friend how loosely they are based on what really happened during the LCW.It was almost depressing at how characters were switched around and even killed off who didn't even die.Here we are getting close to the day that Billy died and the "Powers that be" feel like his actual life events were too boring to put them in a movie.you would think after almost 130 yrs. and all of the research that has been done we could get a truthful movie about Billy and the LCW. Sad

There seem to be plenty of rumors about a BTK movie circulating. There was the one mentioned recently on this board and I've read that "Endless Ride" had been optioned for a movie. I don't know if these two are the same project or not. Also, I've read that Nolan has a BTK script ready to go and this one really excites me because not only is he the foremost authority on the LCW but he is also a successful fiction writer! To me, this bodes well for the quality of his script.

We can only hope and keep our fingers crossed.

BTW: I recorded "Chisum" yesterday because a co-worker has been telling me how good a movie it is. I peaked into it about half-way thru and the scene was William Bonney being visited by John Tunstall as he lay recuperating in bed.

Chris-If Nolan is involved then we might get something authentic for a change.I hope that it becomes a reality because we certainly need something to put some life into the BTK scene.I gues I've been under a rock because I haven't watched any part of "Chisum" sounds cool though.You'll have to let us all know how you liked the entire movie.I enjoyed "Endless Ride" that will be interesting to see how that one is played out because it was kinda complex lets just hope that it stays on target and doesn't become a half-truth type scenerio.

Bronte and Chris
We can always hope but I'm afraid that we already know all there is to know about Billy and anything new is going to be hollywood generated.

The problem with Hollywood is they always choose to base their movies on the legend, not the history of Billy the Kid. I guess Hollywood thinks the Robin Hood-like figure is more appealing to the public. I personally think the real life of Billy to be more interesting and more tragic then the myth. I sure hope an accurate movie is in the fix and I agree…what better script then Fred Nolan’s.

I’ve seen “Chisum” several times and the movie does list accurate names to a pretty accurate role in the history of the LCW (it even has Sally Chisum, Peppin, Jesse Evans, Dolan, Murphey, Baker and Morton, etc.), but the movie’s storyline and the portrayal of Billy the Kid is very inaccurate. Basically, Billy is a kill-crazy humorless avenger and Chisum comes out the big hero…probably because he’s John Wayne. Wink

Aside from the inaccuracies, it’s still an entertaining movie.

If you picture billies life from the time he became a petty thief in silver city and climed out the chimmy all the way through to his death and you made a film with all his escapes and shootouts that he was involved in it would make for one hell of a movie and the beauty of it is it would be true.

What a shame hollywood can,t see it.

one of the problems with historical movies is that they can be edited to suit the movie maker's take on the events...Young guns being a great example (well, maybe great was a bad choice of words silent

having said that however ANY BTK movie that was attempted to be done as factually as possible with a Fred Nolan approved script would sure be worth the price of a ticket and a big tub of buttered popcorn Very Happy
