GOD FORGIVES... I DON'T!
Joe, come here! It's dangerous!
The train is coming!
But there's nobody...
What's going on?
They killed Mr. Hoskins.
They attacked the train!
They're all dead! All of them!
One hundred more.
One for me.
A thousand more.
Think carefully, buddy, he said one thousand. I want to see the money. He's right, he doesn't know us. But we're honest people. Fine, I'll vouch for Ronnie. With cash or tobacco? Because you're out of cigars. I think you didn't understand. I said I'll vouch for him.
This place is... peaceful.
I won't forget it.
One moment. Do you vouch for me too? Of course. You need three thousand to see.
He'll need a guarantee too.
Very well. I see that you don't want to play anymore.
I wouldn't touch that if I were you.
To be honest, I might as well vouch for myself...
Please, forgive me.
Keep quiet... You might wake them up.
It's closed. I'm hungry, I'd like to eat. I said it's closed. Where can I find something to eat then? In hell.
You're a funny guy.
And you, you're breaking my balls...
- ''Will you vouch for me?'' - ''Of course.''
- ''For me too?'' - ''Sure!'' And they started to fight.
- Did you see him before? - Of course not. You don't forget a guy like that.
Do you know him?
I think I do.
He's the man I'm looking for.
A thousand more. Stupid fool.
You stayed alone, Doc. It's better to play alone. I never go for a walk at night. Especially since I believe in ghosts.
You were looking for me? Yes. Why? A week ago, a MKT train has been attacked.
They stole 300 000 dollars in gold. A lucky move.
Everybody got killed. Nobody left to tell what happened. It's the work of a specialist.
How many people would be able to pull out something like that?
I lied, they didn't all die. There was one survivor. He told me what happened... and who did it.
Come on... try harder. Tell me everything. Talk.
Bill. Our good old friend Bill Sant'Antonio.
What's your point? Exactly what I just told you.
That's why you believe in ghosts.
Listen to me carefully. Here are the 300 miles of rails from El Paso to Canyon City. The gold was loaded in El Paso. The robbers tracks seem to show... that the attack happened here. But it was just a trap. Two days before the train left... the robbers went this way. They just wanted to leave tracks near the rails. And they went north. To the river. There, they turned around and went back to El Paso... where they waited for the train to leave. They bought tickets and... went in the train as passengers. After an hour, near the Mexican border,
20 miles from Puntal, a small village... they drew their guns and killed everybody. The driver, a judge and everybody else. They stopped the train... and unloaded all the gold. Two of them left the train just before it got to its last stop. All the searching was done in the north. Except that nobody will find these men there. Because they're safe in the south.
I only know one man able to organize something like that. It's Bill Sant'Antonio. He's the one who attacked the train.
The dead would have fun robbing trains? I don't know what happened a year ago, but I know one thing: Bill is alive. And since the one who saw him on the train is dead... we're the only ones to know. There's just me and you, now. Even if you don't believe it yet. We have a few advantages over him. First, he doesn't know that we know he's alive. Then, we know where he's hiding. And finally, considering what happened, he feels safe now.
Don't you have anything to say?
Where's your interest in all this? Harold Bank had the gold insured by an agency. I happen to work for this agency.
You haven't changed, you stupid fool.
Tell me what happened that night.
Go to hell.
Tell me what happened that night.
You're lucky tonight, niأ١o... It couldn't be any better. Hello, you! You know, Bill, your friend is quite good-looking. Why did I never see him before? He wasn't here, my dear. He just arrived.
She's a lady... Everything in its own time. How dared you hit me? Come over here! Have her shut the fuck up!
My turn to deal the cards this time, we'll see if you're gonna win.
What do you mean? Nothing... I never met someone so lucky.
Luck has nothing to do with it. What is it then? You've always had the same skill in cards...
Are you sure?
I asked you a question. You're too curious. And that, you have to pay for it. I'm curious to know if you cheat. Quiet! I won't let you laugh at a friend. Especially an old friend like you. No one is allowed to laugh. Except me.
No, niأ١o. You shouldn't have done that.
In the past...
you'd have never considered doing something like that.
Because I'm the one who gave you those tools...
and taught you how to use them. Yeah, in the past... I'm sure you wouldn't have done that. You're talking because you're carrying a gun. Calm down, buddy, you'll get one too. Don't worry. Stay calm. A man like you would never accept to fight... someone who makes a living playing cards... without first thinking of the consequences. I've heard that... you have good reflexes with your gun. If you're as good as you are playing cards then I should be careful. Because I have many responsibilities.
For example... I must think about my men.
Look at them. What would they do... the poor boys? They would get my gold share if I was dead. I'm generous with my men, but they're not the only ones. There's Paquita too. What would she do if I was dead? What would she do? What would you do?
And let's not forget the funeral. I want an unforgettable funeral. With music, everybody will cry, the priest will make his speech... And a funeral is expensive. I shouldn't be the one paying for it. Nor my men, Paquita and the villagers... who have a hard time making a living, unlike you.
I think you should...
put back on the table what you won. Because it's my money. It was my money, wasn't it? And also, I'm sure... that you'd be willing to pay for my funeral if you killed me.
Here, that's good.
You really think you can kill me. At least my buddies have guts. You thought that he wasn't a friend... and that he didn't want to pay for my funeral... but you were wrong: he's a friend. It's a shame to kill him. But I respect my friends. If he wins, you'll let him go. Now all of you go outside, nobody will see us fight. No one will watch the fight. Bud will make sure that the rules are respected. Once you're outside, he'll set the house on fire. No one will see the body of Bill Sant'Antonio or of his opponent. If I win, this money will be used for his burial. And now get out, everybody outside!
Give him a gun, Bud.
Now go outside and follow my orders. When the flames will reach the roof, this matter will be settled.
And now Doc, it's between you and me. I always liked jokes. This one might be the best.
You won't make it alive. Even if you're faster than me... my men will look for you everywhere... and will get revenge.
There's quite a few of my men, Doc. What are you doing? What are they waiting for?
Ready when you are...
You won't make it alive. Even if you're faster than me... my men will look for you everywhere... and will get revenge. There's quite a few of my men, Doc.
There's quite a few of my men... Will you buy me a drink, stranger? No, get lost!
There's quite a few of my men...
I always liked jokes. This one might be the best.
You! A guy will come through here soon. You'll recognize him easily, he will have walked 20 miles on foot. And he hates walking. Give him this horse.
Rose! Come here! Where are you going? I'll be right back.
Shut up. I'm not here to kill you.
When did you arrive? You very well know that you might be killed here.
I must hurry, I'm expected somewhere. It won't take long. I just want to know one thing. I thought you were here for me... I went up to redo my makeup... I'm starting to need some. Rose... You must tell me what happened after that night. What night? Don't put on an act. It was a century ago. Ten months. It's a long time to me. Listen carefully, Doc. I don't blame you. But I lost my man. And it seems you're the one who shot him.
- Who are you talking about? - Joe Tam-Tam. You didn't miss much.
I became attached to him and he was generous... More generous than the others. I wasn't the one who looked for trouble. I know, but you should understand, you got them. You must be very rich now.
What? People say that you stole the money during Bill's funeral. Listen to me, Rose. Your Tam-Tam was a stupid fuck. But you, you're everything but a fool. Who was it then?
Yes? Rose, what are you doing? We're waiting for you. I'll be right here.
- Did you lock yourself up? - Wait a minute. You won't let me in? Not now. Later. Who were you talking to? I've started talking alone since I've met you... Open! I'll smash the door! I'll lose him... I told you to go to hell!
I hope he didn't hurt himself. He's a nice man after all.
Come on, tell me everything you know.
I don't have much time. Me neither.
Bill had one kind of a funeral, exactly as he wished.
I had never seen such a good ceremony. Yes, it was a first rate funeral.
Then Bill's men left to split the gold. They were even about to split Bill's share among themselves. Tam-Tam intended to forget the past. He wanted to start a new life with me.
But the worst kind of surprise was waiting for them there.
The gold had disappeared.
Only one man could have done that and I know who he is. We should never have let him go. Because he didn't really leave. He stayed to watch us. He stole the gold while we were at the funeral. But I'll make sure he won't enjoy it. Bill said that our band is finished. But he didn't expect such a low blow. He managed to convince them. Then they all went looking for you. Tam-Tam came back a month later. He told me that Bud was the first to disappear.
So it's Bud who said it was me. The others were still looking for you... but each on his own. They were all hoping to find you to keep all the gold.
I tried to stop Tam-Tam, but it was pointless. He only stayed for a night. He promised me that he would come back before he left.
But you're the one who came back.
He was a good-looking man. He was so generous!
Bud gave me the gun that night. Give him a gun, Bud.
I have to go, Rose.
Since they left, a year ago... I stopped working and there are no more dead. Except for the natural deaths. People have to supplement one's income. That's why I'm doing small precision jobs.
If you let me, I'll continue... Tell me, old man... is it you who made Sant'Antonio's coffin? Of course it's me. And is it you who put him in it? Yes. Even if I must confess that there wasn't much left of him... What do you mean? It was an ugly sight. He looked like he had already been home. In hell, I mean.
If you were asked to swear... that the one you put in the coffin was Bill Sant'Antonio... would you do it? Aren't you the one who killed him? I'm waiting for your answer. I already answered! No one could have identified the remains of this burned corpse.
You're wasting my time with these riddles.
If you told me that you never shot Bill Sant'Antonio... I'd say that... this bastard is still alive.
Because I don't believe in ghosts... even if some people of the village... swear that they've seen him riding his damn black horse... during full moon nights.
You can say that... Bill Sant'Antonio was such an important man... that people can't forget him. I agree. But not so important as to make him a legend. But people love legends. Otherwise they wouldn't have anything to tell during the evenings... they wouldn't know what to talk about. Thanks for everything, old man. It was nice to see you again. And don't forget... that if I didn't know it was you who shot him, I could swear that Bill Sant'Antonio is still alive.
Indeed, he's still alive.
But he'll regret not being dead.
Too bad you've been so curious. All you had to do... was to keep doing your job.
Gimme something to drink.
Listen, assholes. I've got some good news for all of you.
Aren't you interested?
Here. It's better. A very important man will come soon.
The new lawman needs to be welcome with dignity. Get up, assholes!
Don't let him wait outside, he could catch a cold.
Let's make the introductions. If he's in charge of protecting your rights... the new lawman will have to know you well.
The new commander wants to know your name. You must tell it to him.
- Jose... - Very good, Jose what? Hernandez. Does this name ring a bell? What? Is that him who called you? I'm disappointed... And he told you that we...
That's true, they deserve to be punished.
You're way too harsh... They're good men... they won't make the same mistake twice.
Tell it to the commander. You won't make the same mistake again. Did you hear, commander? He said they won't do it again.
Stop! You can't... It's a good thing that we're here to make sure people respect the law! Jose, give the commander a drink. A lawman is always sensitive at the sight of blood. Come on, give the commander a drink.
Cheer up and move.
The new commander of the village won't bother us anymore. Where was he? Not far... from the village. He was about to arrive. Did someone see you?
Nobody saw us. Then Bud got a great idea. Which one?
It's nothing, it was just a joke... Tell me.
It was just a joke! You know that I hate jokes! If they're made by others. My orders were clear. You had to get rid of the commander far from the village.
I want to know who will come and when. No one must make it out of here alive, like three days ago.
Bud is a nice boy, but he doesn't have a good memory. That'll teach him.
I can teach a lot more things, Bud. Except one thing that you'll never have.
That's what it is. You're stupid, Bud. You must know it.
Haven't you realized that you're a retard yet?
I'd like a room.
What's up? Nothing...
I need a bed to rest before I leave. First room on the right.
I don't want to be disturbed. You didn't pick the right place.
What was it?
Go on, hand out the cards.
Come on, out! Walk! And don't move if you want to see your chiquita again!
That's good, amigo... you'll get used to it soon, you'll see.
Who is this guy?
- Do you know him, Jesus? - No. And you, Miguel? Ask him. I'd like to know how you got here. There's only one door. Let me down. Did you hear, Miguel? He wants to get down.
Come on, tell us who you are and what you're doing here. Let me down, I'll only talk to Sant'Antonio.
Are you crazy? Who do you want to talk to? To Sant'Antonio. And then you'll want to talk to God? I want to talk to your boss whatever his current name is. You'll have to do with us. He's got better things to do.
Well, well, look who's here. Let me down.
I owe you one.
It's the gold from the train, I was right!
Your hands. They'll be here soon.
Forget it, Bud. I'm thirsty.
The two of us will never be able to carry this chest. You're right, it's impossible with just two.
There's something new.
If you knew who came today...
Why didn't you tell me we had some visitors? I didn't know you were interested.
I didn't say that I'm interested. Who is it? A stranger, he's leaving tomorrow.
- Where is he? - Upstairs, sleeping.
Go, beast, quick!
It's so damn heavy!
Now, go under it.
Follow my boots.
I'll never make it. You will if you don't want to die under it.
What are you doing? You're leaving?
He's a heavy sleeper.
What? He doesn't answer.
Get out, my friend! What about a game?
Let's go, quick!
We'll settle it later! Come!
- Get it down yourself! - No, you'll die under it. Quick, get it down! Bill will roll on the floor laughing when he'll find you under this chest. He'll think that you're just a thief who wanted to steal his gold. That's enough, I can't bear it any longer. Listen to me, beast. Bill thinks that you're just a brainless mountain of muscles. And he's right. You're also a coward, a fat coward!
Hurry, get in.
Why did you stop?
This wagon will never get there. The chest will. The chest will?
- They took the gold! - And the wagon too! Follow me!
He's just like me, he doesn't like water.
We have to swim to the shore. Look!
- Don't even think about it! - I forgot that you couldn't swim. I don't care.
Water isn't really warm, but... Come on, don't be stupid. Hang on to me.
What did you tell me when I was carrying the chest? I remember, you said that I was a fat coward! Come on, hurry.
It was a good idea to burry this chest.
It'll be safer on the hill than inside a bank while we're away.
- While we're away? - Yes. We have to warn the agency...
You want to stay here?
Your buddy still owes me 10 000 dollars from the last game. You'll come with me.
The fact that you got me out of the water... doesn't give you the right to tell me what I must... or mustn't do. I should have left you there.
You wouldn't have gone far. Anyway, once we'll have warned the agency your share of gold will be enough... to pay for Bill's debts. It's another story. Also, do you really think that I'd be satisfied... with a small share?
You're the one working for this agency, not me.
If that's how you take it... you'll come with me for sure. Or we can settle this affair right now. Gunshots make a lot of noise.
And I don't think it's the right time to make some noise.
There's another way to convince you.
There's one thing that I don't understand.
What is it?
Why do you want me to smash....
your dirty dog face?
Get down! I'm coming.
You fucking bastard!
Cheers... I would have never thought that the three of us would meet again... after all this time. Me neither.
You should be more wary of your old friends. I wanted to have some peace... minding my own business... then you came, killed 3 of my men... robbed me... and wanted to leave without even saying good bye.
Tell me, ghost, what's your new name?
If only people could mind their own business...
Yet, you tried to see me a year ago. Are you upset for a few blank bullets? Yours were real.
You should thank me, Doc. I could have killed you if I wanted to. It wouldn't have helped your affairs. You managed to get rid of your men since they went looking for me.
It was a good idea. This trick helped me to get rid of all those who wanted me dead...
my men included. They weren't of any use to me anymore. It's great to be alive...
without anybody knowing it. So I'd like to know who told you that I was around here. You didn't kill all the passengers on that train. One of them survived... and told me that you were still alive.
That's why I have to do everything by myself, isn't it Bud?
I'll remember it next time.
There won't be a next time, ghost.
You're so ungrateful. I saved you because they would have killed you for sure. And you won't tell me where you've hidden my gold. Why hide it anyway? Only Bud could believe... that it's been lost in the river. It's obvious. Otherwise, why would you fight? I'll finally know who is the bravest of you two.
It looks like it's Ayrton, but we never know. What do you think, Bud? No, Bud isn't allowed to think.
If he could... he would have killed you already. But you see, Bud... they're the only ones to know where our gold is. You probably think...
that they won't talk.
But you're wrong. And do you know who will help us to find the gold? The weakest? No, not at all. If you keep two men perfectly matched, just like two animals... they'll never die at the same time.
Even if it's just for a second... one of them will survive. I've known you for too long... I know you far too well to not be aware of your weaknesses.
Raise your arm when you'll feel like talking. I'm not in a hurry.
Pull him up, quick.
So? Did you change your mind?
To the bottom!
Nobody must come in here while I'm away, understood? Not Bud nor Pedrito. Nobody must come in here, whatever the reason. Shoot those who disobey, understood? It'll take him some time to change his mind. But we're in no hurry. I'm counting on you, do a good job. Lock yourself up.
I don't want to see those faces! We'll get our gold back. Bud and Targo know what to do.
Nobody must disturb them. But keep an eye on them still. You two! Go and watch Bud at the well. Hurry! Shoot him in the legs if he gets away. I don't want anybody dead, because the dead don't talk. Pedrito and his men will watch the cave. Targo mustn't move from there either. Why can't we take care of the gringos? Obey me!
Get up, it's time for a bath.
I'll take you there if you don't tell anybody.
You won't have to share it with anyone, Bud. Think about it.
It's not the time to rest. Stand up!
And if I told you that we've arrived?
Calm down, buddy. We make mistakes when we're in a hurry. I never said that we don't.
Your gun... Your hand is next to it...
The gold should be here.
No, now, it's your turn to dig. I told you to dig.
Didn't anyone ever tell you...
that you're a fucking asshole?
Where is he? Where is he?
When? They had an agreement. Otherwise they wouldn't have escaped. It's not true! When? I noticed it at dawn. The texan was supposed to watch him. When I woke up, he was there, near the well... his throat slit. So you were sleeping? Just for a few minutes. He was the one supposed to watch Bud. And you didn't follow them?
- The horses... - What? They set them free. They probably had an agreement. There's no way that this scumbag didn't hear them. What?
They put some clothes around the horses hooves. A good job... but it takes time.
You only slept for a few minutes?
Let's go! What about us, what do we do? Try to not fall asleep.
Gimme something to drink.
You must be the man I need.
Can you repeat the few words I'm going to tell you?
Take the horse and go tell to the leader of these men... that the time has come to finish the game started a year ago.
You know what I mean?
I think I do.
Since you have a good memory...
do me another favor. Of course. Tell him that I hate latecomers.
Open, you bastard! Open! I want to talk to the gringo!
Open! The other gringo is gone, he left with Bud. Open, I want to take care of this one. Leave him to me! I'm telling you to open!
Dirty son of a bitch!
Leave me alone, I must talk to your boss. Don't worry, tell us everything. You!
Where did you get this horse? Let me go, I must talk to Mr. Bud asap. He'll thank me for the information I'll give him. It's a good thing that I met you. Take me to him please. Who gave you this horse? The American. He's the one who gave it to me. Where is he? At the inn. He's waiting. He told me...
Wait! Don't kill him! He must be alive, understood?
Too many people.
Too many people.
Calm down, buddy. Calm down. You'll be the only one to shoot if it's so much fun to you. I hate playing without an outlay. And during a real game, we put the outlay on the table. All right.
Come on, come. Wait. We're not in a hurry. I have a proposition to make. I had to plan this job a year ago. People were coming from everywhere to kill me and get a reward. I couldn't trust anybody. Not even my men.
It was the only way to get rid of everybody. But you had nothing to do with it. I'm sorry. I'll make it up to you. Why didn't you tell me yesterday? In business, the strongest is in charge. Yesterday, I was the strongest, but I had to meet someone... very important who couldn't wait. And I did the right thing. I made a better deal than the one we're currently talking about.
My proposition is very simple. We could be partners. Me and you. Like good old time. What about our friend? Let me tell you. You'll accept. And what about our friend? No need to worry about him. He's in good hands.
Calm down, Targo, calm down. Don't shoot!
There's one thing you didn't understand.
I'm the one handing out the cards this time.
Our ways of thinking are way too different. If I wanted to see you...
it's most definitely not to do some business with you.
Think about it a little. Do you want to know where what the idiots call my luck come from? Why I've managed to pull... lucrative jobs without any trouble for years? Let me tell you. The owner of the El Paso bank is insuring the transportation of his goods. He gives me the day and the time of the train departure... as well as all the safety measures taken by the agency. I take care of the rest. There's no risk. Not for him, not for me. It's always lucrative jobs, without anything unexpected. He's a contact you have to keep very closely. He's the one who advised me to disappear last year. Listen to me, Doc. You're the only one to whom I ever told that. And do you know why?
Why? Because I know I can trust you. You're wrong, ghost.
We don't share the same point of view.
I only agree on one thing.
We'll put the outlay on the table.
Do you know what I'm gonna do, ghost?
I'll offer you the same thing you did last year. I don't see how you'll be able to set those rocks on fire. It's a little difficult. I'm not talking about fire.
But about dynamite.
A charge enough to make you fly. There won't be any trap this time.
Drop your guns!
Don't you want to come to the party? We don't fight with hyenas in my family. It's a shame. Dead hyenas don't talk. Explain yourself, bastard. As you can see, the chest is where we left it... but it doesn't mean that it's full of gold. You can check it if you want.
You were cheating then.
Don't be upset by a little joke. You love jokes. Shut up! And move back.
It's your last dirty trick, ghost. Quick!
It doesn't matter if you lost a leg.
We'll see if you're gonna fool me again.
Crawl, you dirty vermin.
You're one hell of a troublemaker.
You know, I dreamed... that a mountain was falling on me. My shoulders still hurt.
Where are we going? North, we must remove the lead that's inside your body. Stupid fool...
And what about all this?
We'll talk about it when you'll be able to defend yourself again.
