Wild Bill was a guy who had to live with fame. He was one of the most famous Americans of his time, like a sports champion or an entertainer. He couldn’t go into any bar in the West without being recognized. Some guys wanted to pick fights with him and other guys wanted to buy him drinks. And this movie examines both the good and the bad of his attitudes toward, and his being a product of, celebrity. — Walter Hill, 1994.
