Paul Newman portrays the cow-country Rebel Without a Cause, Billy the Kid, in a western which is crammed with slambang action. Its characters, however, remain shadowy to the end. Full Review

Penn's first film, it is in many ways a key stage in the development of the Western.

Rating: B+ -- Boasting a strong turn by Paul Newman as Billy the Kid, this disturbingly psychological, technically innovative deconstructive Western marks the impressive debut of Arthur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde), signaling the beginning of the New American Cinema. Full Review

Saddled with a pretentious and senseless screenplay about Billy the Kid, this lame oater drags all parties down with it. Full Review

Penn's training in theater and live-TV drama (e.g. Playhouse 90) shows; the central performance is rehearsed into an anxious stir, every line matched to an actorly decision, a blocking cue. Full Review
