Billy the Crabbe had nerves of Steele
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 06/11/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Fifteen titles in MILL CREEK's BILLY THE KID 20 MOVIE PACK have never been previously issued by this manufacturer.

The "Billy the Kid" movie series recasts an outlaw gunslinger as a hero. The real "Kid" wasn't as noble or noted.
Henry McCarty (alias "William Bonney") was gunned down at age 21 and would've faded into obscurity if his killer, Patrick Garrett hadn't published a fictionalized biography, "THE AUTHENTIC LIFE OF BILLY, THE KID." Over time, the Kid's legend grew. At last count, 21 men died at his hands. This number is wildly inflated.

As for the cinematic Billy, Buster Crabbe played him in 13 programmers in 1941-43. Many of that number are here, as are Crabbe as Billy 'Sunset' Carson. Al St. John, who's "Fuzzy" in this series, was the nephew of Fatty Arbuckle. In the silent era, St. John had a penchant for leaping into the air with legs pointed in opposite directions. Sam Newfield directed all.

Bob Steele was Billy before Mr. Crabbe (Steele later played Pvt. Duffy on TV's F TROOP). Others who portrayed the Kid include Johnny Mack Brown, Robert Taylor, Audie Murphy, Scott Brady, Paul Newman, Michael J. Pollard, Kris Kristofferson, Val Kilmer and Donnie Wahlberg.


Also from MILL CREEK:
WESTERN LEGENDS 50 MOVIE PACK features vintage programmers starring John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Tom Tyler, Hoot Gibson, Tex Ritter, Buck Jones and others.
