Funny what a little push can do. Based on a rumor, I need to tell my version of this story before someone poaches it and ruins it. My version of the story deals with what really happened to the Apache Kid. Of course, I am not alone in this quest (see quote below).
In my version a certain head hunter brings in his bounty to San Carlos.
The bounty hunter bagged his prey deep in the Sierra Madres, with the help of this guy.
And this guy.
All three of these intrepid scouts rode across the border and made their way up a blood-soaked trail.
Of course, it must be said, to this day, the same trail is littered with the carcasses of numerous failed screenplays.
"I met a tour manager for the band Genesis in Vienna years ago. When he found out I was from Arizona, we bonded over our respective failed attempts at screenplays of the Apache Kid story."
