Quotes

[Johnny offers Willie a pistol]
Johnny Liam: And while you're at it, you learn how to use this and hang onto it. You can get by without a dime in your pocket, but without this iron, you're nothing.
Willie Duggans: Oh, it can't be as bad as you say.
Johnny Liam: Now, maybe where you come from the law comes in books, but in this country, a man carries it on his hip.

The versatile Mr. Dureya
31 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What absolute nonsense that a previous reviewer states that Mr. Dureya cannot carry off nice in this film. The guy was acting for over 30 years and was a brilliant, versatile actor. Sure , he could play villains to perfection and because of this was well known and cast in these parts. But during his 30 years of film acting he frequently was cast as a good guy and he played these roles well.The Bounty Killer does ask too much in his age, sure, the part was written for a younger guy but as Dureya is so exceptionally good as the naive easterner it still works well.It's a wonderful film, it's low budget but it's a fine well acted and well written western.
