Billy the KidWhen I think of Billy the Kid I conjure up an image of a murderous young punk, robbing at will and murdering at the drop of hat. The new American Experience documentary on the infamous outlaw paints an entirely different picture, a murderous thieving one yes, but also one of a lonely teen alone in the unwelcoming west who fights the evil tyrants of his day and, although becoming a scourge of the national media, becoming a hero of the local people and a legend after his time. "Billy the Kid" is an exceedingly good profile of the notorious outlaw, combining wonderful artifacts, scholars, and historians to tell William Bonney's surprisingly little known story.
