6 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deux grands amis sont devenus des ennemis jurés. L'un est surnommé Billy le Kid (Kris Kristofferson) et vit au-dessus des lois. L'autre, le shérif Pat Garrett (James Coburn), représente la loi et chevauchait autrefois aux côtés de Billy. Sur une musique vibrante de Bob Dylan (qui incarne Alias, le comparse de Billy) et regorgeant de figures mythiques du western, la saga de Sam Peckinpah sur l'une des grandes légendes de l'Ouest a été restaurée à sa juste gloire. Pour la première fois depuis sa sortie de la salle de montage, le film contient l'équilibre entre l'action et le développement des personnages tel que désiré par Peckinpah conjuguant fureur et poésie en suivant les notes du réalisateur et les observations de ses collègues. La différence est frappante et la nouvelle version, des plus percutantes". --Verso du conteneur
