Editor's Note
Director Walter Hill's WILD BILL is a film biography of legendary outlaw James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok (Jeff Bridges). The story covers the major events that shaped the gunman's life, including his work as a Kansas lawman, his stint in Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show, and his part-time relationship with a whip-wielding Calamity Jane (Ellen Barkin). In addition, the film shows how Hickok gained his deadly reputation, as well as his repeated confrontations with a vengeful young killer named Jack McCall (David Arquette), whose mother was wronged by Hickok years back--and who may or may not be Hickok's own son.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"...Brought growlingly to life by Bridges....Hallucinatory..." 05/31/1996 p.68

Variety
"...[Hill] clearly has an affinity for the Old West and the men who lived in it....Diane Lane is one of the dreamiest visions to hit the territories since Claudia Cardinale..." 11/27/1995

Los Angeles Times
"...[Bridges] gives us a marvelously rich and honest look at a simple man of legendary pluck....It's a remarkably full performance..." 12/01/1995 p.F1

Uncut
"[P]layed with flinty integrity buy the ever-reliable Jeff Bridges." 01/01/2005 p.83

Washington Post 8 of 10
Picking out a favorite Jeff Bridges performance is no easy task... The actor, so underrated for so many years, keeps discovering new facets of his talent, and in Wild Bill he adds a bruised, meditative quality to the charismatic laconism of his recent roles... the actor magnificently expresses the character's rage over the role he's been forced to play... - Hal Hinson
