Actually Woodie did a lot of "philanderin" on his second family as well. By the time of his third marriage and umpteenth kid he was pretty philandered out.

His take on Pretty Boy Floyd was pretty rosy, but the farm folk really DID love the bank robber. "1912" massacre was pretty spot on from what I've read.
