Ernie Parsons: I didn't see any jury.
Head of Posse: Well, they was around. Anyway, what difference does it make. You gunned down Windy Jones and he was one of our most beloved and respected citizens.
Ernie Parsons: I heard he was the town drunk.
Head of Posse: Well, now that he's dead, he's one of our town's most beloved and respected citizens.

Fun to watch
7 February 2004 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie about 4 times, under various circumstances, including a night in the hospital when I couldn't sleep. I have always liked Marjo Gortner in his limited career, and this movie was a lot of fun. It reminds me of the old TV westerns like "Maverick" in its humour and characterizations. I can't believe it's not had 5 votes yet.
