The western movie, the cowboy novel, the rodeo and the wild west show are all means by which the West has become mythologised, distorted, caricatured and made larger than life. The West no longer lives in reality, only in the world of the imagination, but the key figure in the historical process whereby the factual, historical West was transformed into the ‘Western myth’ was William Frederick ‘Buffalo Bill’ Cody. It was within his persona that the raw material of experience was transformed into showbusiness.

This documentary is adapted from the 1879 autobiography ‘The Life of Hon. William F. Cody known as Buffalo Bill’ and tells his story, including his life as a Pony Express rider, prairie scout, buffalo hunter and wild west show creator. With rock legend David Johansen as the voice of Buffalo Bill, Arena uses drama and unique archive of the real Buffalo Bill to tell an extraordinary tale with strangely contemporary resonance.
