Colin, you should know by the question I mean does it feature any historical personalities in the film who would eventually be members of the gang, which obviously wasn't called that until years later.

              Let's not forget Armento who was a notorious cattle and horse thief (1880 to 1900) and hung with Butch and others at Lost Cabin and Lander. He is even with Butch at the Occidental Hotel in Buffalo.... more

          Colin that's not correct. Butch was in Big Horn Basin by at least 1889. Flat Nose Curry was in JC much earlier where he ranched near HIW. In fact the HIW gang was known at that time.We also have... more
