Quotes

[interrupting the trappers' gruesome song about the joys of killing animals]

George Noon: Oh, stop!

James Humphrey: That's sick!

Frenchy Cabazon: I agree! Nutter was singing in the wrong key!

Preston Nutter: No I wasn't! It was Loutzenheiser! I was singing in E flat minor.

Frenchy Cabazon: The SONG'S in F sharp major!

Shannon Bell: I think they're the same thing. I mean, E flat is the relative major of F sharp.

Frenchy Cabazon: No it isn't! The relative minor is three half-tones DOWN from the major, not up!

George Noon: No, it's three down. Like A is the relative minor of C major.

O.D. Loutzenheiser: But isn't A sharp in C major?

Shannon Bell: Wait, are you singing mixolydian scales or something?

Frenchy Cabazon: A sharp is tonic to C major! It's the sixth!

James Humphrey: No it isn't!

Israel Swan: Well, it would be like a raised 13th if anything.

[singing]

Israel Swan: Sometimes, the world is black./And tears run from your eyes./Maybe we'll all get really sick./And maybe we'll all die... /Sooooooooooooo, let's build a snowman/We can make him our best friend./We can name him Tom or we can name him George!/We can make him tall, or we can make him not so tall./Snowman!/He'll have a happy face, a happy smile, a happy point of view./If you build me a snowman, then I'll build one for you./So, let's build a snowman!/We can make him our best friend./We can name him Bob or we can name him Beowulf!/We can make him tall, or we can make him not so tall./Snowman!/Hey!

[Tapdance solo]

Israel Swan: He'll have a happy face, a happy smile, a happy point of view./If you build me a snowman, then I'll build one for you./Snowman! Snowman! Snowman!

[Packer rises]

Judge Melville B. Jerry: Alferd Packer, a jury of twelve honest citizens have sat in judgment on your case and have found you... guilty.

[the courtroom buzzes with quiet chatter about the verdict]

Judge Melville B. Jerry: Alferd Packer, the judgment of this court is that you be removed from hence to the jail of Hinsdale County, and then be taken to a place of execution prepared for this purpose, within the limits of the town of Lake City, and then and there be hung by the neck until you are dead, dead, dead.

[Packer is aghast at this]

[first lines]

Title Card: The film you are about to see was originally released in 1954. Upstaged by the overwhelming popularity of "Oklahoma!", it's short lived theater run was canceled, and "Alfred Packer: The Musical" soon fell into obscurity. The original negative, re-discovered just last year, has been painstakingly restored using state-of-the-art color enhancing and computer reconstruction technology. The film's violent scenes have been edited out for your viewing pleasure.
