The Law vs. Billy the Kid

Movie: The Law vs. Billy the Kid
Director: William Castle
Produced by: Columbia Pictures
Released By:
MPAA Rating:

Scott Brady plays a decidedly mature Billy the Kid in this Columbia western programmer. According to this acount, Billy was just a mixed-up kid who was forced against his will to become a gunslinger. Billy’s friendship with sheriff Pat Garrett, which has always been a matter of historical speculation, is deepened in the film, with Garrett reluctantly tracking Billy down after the latter has tried to avenge the death of kindly rancher John H. Tunstall. British leading lady Betta St. John is cast as Billy’s love interest while Alan Hale Jr. is far removed from his Gilligan’s Island role as The Skipper, cast here as a scowling heavy.
