When the gossiping women are in the Marshall's office talking to Ringo, the Marshall walks in and asks Ringo if they got the guy in the window (Ringo's sniper). The Marshall had been away following Hunt out of town and would not have known there was a sniper. Maybe there was a cut scene where someone told him. See more »

Many viewers may not expect this little known tale to grab their attention, but that,s exactly what it does. There are no spectacular gunfights, cavalry vs indians or raucous barroom brawls. It is quite simply a character study of a haunted man trying to exchange his reputation for a simple quiet existence far from his reputation. I suggest you watch this movie without outside interuptions. Don,t over analyze it,just accept it for what it is. Damn good storytelling.
