[gypsy whinnying] >> pancho, look what you did. you embarrassed gypsy. >> well, people get married, don't they? >> oh, pancho! >> oh, cisco!
pa? do i make a good looking jail bird? you come on out of there. nobody looks good in jail. you're my witness, zack. my pa said i'm ugly. you don'n'need a witness for that, ann. everybody just knows you're the ugliest gal in town. is that why you brought me here pa? so i could hear all these fine compliments? frank wilson rode in a while back. thanks, pa. pam! he's rotten. i love him. he loves me too. here's the latest.
ot that horse out from under you. i hate to hurt dumb animals. that bullet was meant for you. yeah, i know. all right you can finish yououdrink if you want to maybe i wantnt or 4. you haven't got time. oh yes, hoby. i've got plenty of time. let's go. nonothey don't want me to go. platton's a nice town. ain't had a shootin' in two years. well you look like you're dressed for it today. this is a closed town, hoby. now we respect the law here. and in return the law respects us. who are you? sam willis. i own this place. and the other respectable busniess men in town feel the way i do. it's the most peaceful town in texas. and like i said, we don't have any crime here. no crime, just criminals.
we like it the way things are. and man comes into blatton is safe. as long as he acts decent. the state of texas a man canae in one place. and run to sanctuary in another. let's go frank. why does a ranger always mean trouble? uh...now why don't just the ranger and me draw on each other hmm? man to man. you reregnize him? that's phil macklin. yeah, i know his reputation. but don't you worry, he won't draw. as long as you're right here i i blatton, well you're safe too. now, please understand we don't want any trouble. i i derstand. the rest of the respectable business men in blatton
look here, frank. there's ann's mom. came from good stock back east. fine people. they lead a different kind of life from us. music. literature. things like that. they wouldn't accept our ways. that's why pa wouldn't let me o oa horse 'til after i was twelve years old. and that's why he's filled this house with books full of words my tongue can't hold on to. she fights me every inch of the way. when she goes s st i want her to be not ashamed. pa, i'm not going east. jejee, let's look at it this way now, now that album there with all the pictures that's a real good try but it just doesn't work because we're not interested in what they do or think back east.
but it seems you men can never get to the point. pa? we're gonna get married. a toast to the h hpy couple. no. you're not gettin' married. now how you gonna stop us? ann's of age. i'll stop you. my girl isn't marrying a crook. isn'n'that just what you are? now listen you-- frank, i think you better go now. he'll get used to the idea once he cools off. frank. don't you get used to the idea. where's the sheriff? thought i saw you ride out.
it seems like there's some rifle men staked out in the hills up there. so it's outside the town limits. well, tell the sheriff anyway. well i'll figureree knows. well you figure wrong. there's one thing he's not and that's a bush wacker. well you tell me one thing he is, huh? he's a decent human bein'. he's not doin' a thing that he doesn't feel . well how 'bout you, how do you feel about it? what do you mean? well you're wearin' a badge. in a showdown where are you going to stand? with jackson or with the law? jesse jackson's been sherifff. there's never been a better peace officer. it don't sit right to hear someone place him on one side and d w on the other.
y daughter shaken loose from frank wilson. if those rangers ever get in here, you're problem's solved. force won't do it. reason. that's what i want. her head talking to her heart. well where do i come in? you tell her about frank wilson. tell her his record. the killings. the hold ups. the kind of a skunk he is. why should she listen to me any more than you? in the old days a father meant something. these times, it's the fashio for children to go against their folks. that the only reason? no. she figures i'm the same breed of cat as frank. well she's right, isn't she? you know what happens to sheriffs when they outlive their usefulness? nobody forced you to take the job. when i took it i didn't have a family.
she died. it was 5 years ago. i made up my mind then that my daughter would never want anything for lack of money. another year i'd have had enough. now what did you get a split off of every job these boys pull? no. i get a $10 a month head tax from every one that holes up here. same thing. that's my job. it worked good for every body. well the rest of the town is just as guilty as you are. looked the other way because it was convenient and profitable. is it a deal? my deputy carries the message, you talk some sense into my daughter. well it's understood if those rangers ever get here. i'd take you. as well as frank wilson.
you've made a deal. i never could see any fun in fishing. a lot of time. not a man to interfere with the pleasures of others. bring me back a mess of trout from a frying pan. fun's in the fishin'. not the eatin'. remember me? i nearly knocked you down coming out of my father's office yesterday. that's right. may i come in?
zack was the kindest, most decent human being i ever knew. why? he was kind to the wrong people, that's all. hasn't been a gun fired in this town in over two years. everybody keeps reminding me of that. well, it's true. maybe the texas rangers never heard of my father, but he's got quite a reputation. he stopped the morton gang single handed. and the butterfield stage line gave him medals for stopping their hold ups. see this? this is a citation
from the comanshees. it's quite a while ago. there been any medals recently? no occasion. because of my father, blatton is probably the most peaceful community in all of texas. because of your father, blatton is full of outlaws. that's a lie! he told me so himself. says he gets $10 a month head tax on every one of them. why'd he tell you that? because he's worried about you. i wish he'd stop worrying about me. tarted and it hasn't stopped since. be kind of a unnatural if he didn't, wouldn't it? is it part of a ranger's job to poke his nose into things that are none of his business? your father made a wrong turn. he wants to set it right. he's willing to go to jail if it'll straighten you out. who are you to tell me what my father's willing to do? i'm just trying to tell you the truth. it'd be foolish to hook up with frank wilson.
you don't have a chance. you'll always be on the run. and you'll never have peace. you'll wind up hating each other. it's my life. do you mind letting me lead it? your friend killed zack. frank was at sam willis's place when zack was shot. i saw him leave. i didn't say he pulled the trigger. o death of listening to holy talk from you. i'm sick to death of being around you. used to be a time she couldn't bear to be away from me. i'm afraid i didn't help much. then there's been too much talk and thought of me and mine. we both want wilson. let's get him.
they're too fat and soft. i made 'em that way. well, let's say it's a self-made town. there's no point in giving away something for nothing you go on back to your office, i'll... i'll look around. we haven't had a shootin' in over two years. you tell that to zack. he's lying down the street on a slab. zack. it's hard to believe. i'm going to arrest everybody in this town as accessories to murder. maybe you should. instead i'm going to deputize you. you got a chance to clean house. go to the sheriff's office and wait. you still haven't answered me about zack. now honey i told you-- my father said that-- now i'm not gonna try to explain to you what he said now it's simple. who are you gonna believe? him or me? i don't know.
what happened everybody? word gets around. ranger's gettin' himself a lot of deputies. what about the sheriff? he's not lettin' his squeeze fall apart now is he sam? you had no business killing zack. mm? he's right. killin' zack was a mistake. and i'm cuttin' out. now just where are you cuttin' too? that ranger doesn't want me. he wants you. then we just get rid of the ranger. they won't stand for us dry gulchin' no ranger. i tell you, if this ranger is taking care of the sherrif he's gonna fall right in line.
phil puts him under in a fair fight and you watch the citizens run for their holes. hey, ranger. you lookin' for somebody? i'm only intersted in frank wilson. well i don't like your interests. i guess we'll be the one to run for the holes. i don't want a lot of men killed, hoby. the sheriff wants the town clean and all i want is frank wilson. now the rest of you can ride out of town. the offer expires in 3 minutes. we ain't gotta go, you're all wanted.
come on out, frank! come on, honey. i got a surprise for you. sheriff, take a look! that won't do you any good, frank. now i got a gun in the back gonna clear a path or she's gonna get a bullet. i'm real generous, 'cause you got three minutes before this offer expires. she went to him. after zack was killed. frank, why are you doing this? i would have married you. sure, but not because you love me. just to punish yourself. you think i don't know how much that broken down old sheriff means to you? i've heard you talk for hours about the good old days.
and your old man was a king pin in these parts, huh? old honest jesse jackson. the peace officer. the...the model husband, the perfect father. shut up! you listen to me. but old jesse, he kept makin his good, solid $50 a month. but everybody else was gettin' rich. big ranches and solid businesses. i said shut up! listen to me! remember you almost cried when you told me one day you told your daddy he was a nothing because he could do nothing for you? look at me! you blame yourself for all these years because your daddy gave away his good name. you blame yourself because he turned crooked to give you the good things in life, huh? (crying) you're right. i never realized what a fool i've been.
