Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973)(part 3 of 4)
  • Average Shot Length (ASL) = 4.5 seconds (2005 DVD Version). This is fast by most 1970s' film standards, but quite slow for Sam Peckinpah. For example, The Wild Bunch (1969) has an A.S.L. of three seconds, Junior Bonner (1972) 3.5 seconds, The Killer Elite (1975) four seconds.
  • Barry Sullivan (Chisum) had played Pat Garrett in the TV series The Tall Man (1960). And James Coburn (Garrett) will play John Chisum in "Young guns II" (1990).
  • Kris Kristofferson was 36 at the time of filming, playing a character of 21.
  • Monte Hellman was supposed to direct the film as a follow-up to Two-Lane Blacktop (1971) (which was also written by Rudy Wurlitzer). His first choice to play Billy was James Taylor (who starred in "Blacktop").

  • Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
    Jim Rohn

  • Ancient Egyptians shaved off their eyebrows to mourn the deaths of their cats.
  • Illinois has the highest number of personalized license plates than any other state
  • The average American/Canadian will eat about 11.9 pounds of cereal per year!
  • There are about a million ants per person. Ants are very social animals and will live in colonies that can contain almost 500,000 ants.
  • More than 90% of the Nicaraguan people are Roman Catholic.

  • There are 50 horses and 50 kings riding along an old dirt road. They came to a peach tree with 50 peaches. Each took one, yet there were still 49 left. How is this possible?

    Don't say the old lady screamed. Bring her on and let her scream.

    A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
