Captain Woodrow Call, now retired from the Rangers, is a bounty hunter. He is hired by an eastern rail baron to track down Joey Garza, a new kind of killer, only a boy, who kills from a distance with a rifle. Joined by his old compadre Pea Eye, it is a long ride to south Texas and the Mexican side of the border, where the past, in the form of Maria Garza, Joey's mother, haunts Call.

Judge Roy Bean is killed in this film, and John Wesley Hardin survives. The manner of Bean's death does not conform to historical fact; Bean actually drank himself to death; but his reputation as a "hanging judge" who was hanged outside his own courthouse is a popular legend. However, John Wesley Hardin died in 1895. Judge Roy Bean died eight years later in 1903. See more

I killed a gringo, Mama. I only like gringos when they're dead.
