Although the Lincoln County War has come to a conclusion, Billy the Kid turns his back on a gubernatorial pardon and continues his lawless career.
The infamous incident involving Billy the Kid and Joe Grant in the Fort Sumner saloon is portrayed differently here. Grant's misfire is generally believed to have been caused by his firing the traditionally cautionary empty chamber. Billy reacted by fatally shooting him in the chin. In this film Billy uses sleight of hand to remove the bullets from Grant's gun prior to his firing it, contemptuously giving him a backhanded slap across his mouth and chin after the misfire, and leaving the saloon without killing him.
Mrs. Alec McSween:
Don't you think it's time now, Alex, that you traded your Bible for a gun?
Alec McSween: No. I may perish by the sword, but I'll never live by it.
