Wild Bill is a 1995 Western film about the last days of legendary lawman Wild Bill Hickok. Wild Bill, portrayed by Jeff Bridges is serving as sheriff of Deadwood, South Dakota.

Jack McCall, played by David Arquette is a young man whose mother and family have been slighted by Bill in the past, and is out for revenge. Troubled by his on-again, off-again relationship with a woman called Calamity Jane (Ellen Barkin), haunted by the ghosts of his past, and struggling with failing eyesight, Wild Bill faces with grave concern the arrival of this dangerous newcomer to town.

The motion picture was distributed by United Artists. It was written and directed by Walter Hill, with writing credits also going to Pete Dexter, author of the book Deadwood, and Thomas Babe, author of the play Fathers and Sons.
