High Noon


directed by Fred Zinneman

[High Noon is set in a small town in the West named Hadleyville, a town that has only recently, in the words of one citizen, "been made safe for women and children" by the efforts of town marshal Will Kane. The threat of lawlessness, however, is still present. Our first scene is Will Kane and Amy Fowler's wedding ceremony. Kane has just resigned as the town's Marshall.]

A MARSHAL & A MARRIAGE [Scene runs from 6:27 through 10:10, track 2 and 3]

JUDGE: Do you, Will Kane, take Amy to be your lawful wedded wife? To have and to hold, from this day forward, until death do you part?

WILL: I do.

JUDGE: Do you, Amy, take Will, to be your lawful wedded husband? To have and to
hold, from this day forward, until death do you part?

AMY: I do.

JUDGE: The ring please. [The ring is given to Will and he places it on Amy's finger]
Then by the authority vested in me by the laws of this territory, I pronounce you man and wife.

[Will and Amy kiss and those gathered cheer. The judge walks towards Amy]

JUDGE: I can't speak for the rest of you men, but I claim an ancient privilege.

[The judge kisses Amy. Outside, the station master is running from the train station to let the marshal know of the telegram he received and the town's new visitors.]

MAN: [Seeing the station manager] Moving mighty fast for a Sunday!

[Back inside, Will and Amy are alone]

AMY: Will!

WILL: All those people. Amy, it seems to me like people ought to be alone when they get married.

AMY: I know.

WILL: I'm going to try, Amy. I'll do my best.

AMY: I will too.

[They kiss and the door flies open and those gathered for the wedding interrupt the kissing couple]

JONAS HENDERSON: The honeymoon is officially over! Come on everybody, and don't look so shocked!

JUDGE: One more ceremony and Will's a free man. More or less. Marshal, turn in your badge.

WILL: To tell you the truth, I kind of hate to do this without your new marshal being here.

JONAS HENDERSON: Will [addressing the marshal], Fuller, Howe, and I are the entire board of selectmen in this community. We're also your very good friends. With the fine job you've done here, I feel free to say, and the judge will bare me out, this town will be safe 'til tomorrow.

WILL: You win. But don't ever marry a Quaker, she'll have you running a store.

SAM FULLER: I can't picture you doing that, Will.

AMY: I can.

MART HOWE: [Howe is the town's former marshal, who brought Will Kane to Hadleyville to replace him when he was retiring] So can I. And a good thing too.

AMY: Thank you.

WILL: You didn't talk that way when you were wearing a star. All right, it's coming off. But I got to be paid first.

[He lifts Amy off the ground and puts her on the window ledge.]

AMY: Put me down!

WILL: Not 'til you kiss me!

AMY: Let me down, you fool! [Laughing, they kiss. He puts away the star and the others cheer.]

JUDGE: You should have been a lawyer!

[Enter the station master]

STATION MASTER: Marshal, telegram for you. It's terrible. It's shocking.

WILL: [Reading the telegram] They pardoned Frank Miller.

JONAS HENDERSON: Can't believe it. A week ago, too! Nice of them to let you know.

STATION MASTER: And that ain't all. Ben Miller is down at the depot now with Jim Pierce and Jack Colby. They asked about the noon train.

WILL: Noon train? [He looks at the clock. It is 10:40]

JONAS HENDERSON: Will, you get out of this town. Get out of this town this very minute. Oh never mind that [Jonas pulls Will way from his things] now, just don't stop 'til you get to Clarksburg.

AMY: But what is it, Mr. Howe?

MART HOWE: Don't you worry, ma'am, you'll be out of town in a minute and everything will be all right.

WILL: I think I ought to stay.

JONAS HENDERSON: Are you crazy? Think of Amy.

[They get in their buckboard, and Will drives off. There are shouts of goodbye as they leave.]

[Scene runs from 13:46 to 16:21, track 4]

[Will has turned their buckboard around and he and Amy have returned to Hadleyville. Amy wants to know why they have returned.]

AMY: Please, Will, if you just tell me what this is all about.

WILL: Sent a man up five years ago for murder. He was supposed to hang. But up north, they commuted it to life. Now he's free. I don't know how. Anyway, it looks like he's coming back.

AMY: I still don't understand.

WILL: He's a, [Will hesitates] well, he was always wild, kind of crazy. He'll probably make trouble.

AMY: But that's no concern of yours, not anymore.

WILL: I'm the one who sent him up.

AMY: But that was part of your job. That's finished now. They've got a new marshal.

WILL: He won't be here 'til tomorrow. Seems to me I've got to stay. Anyway, I'm the same man, with or without this.

[He puts the star back on as he has strapped his guns on as well.]

AMY: Well, that isn't so.

WILL: I expect he'll come looking for me. Three of his old bunch are waiting at the depot.

AMY: That is exactly why we ought to go.

WILL: They'll just come after us, the four of them, and we'd be all alone on the prairie.

AMY: [Looking at the clock] We've got an hour. We could be--

WILL: What's an hour? What's a hundred miles, we'd never be able to keep that store, Amy! They'd come after us and we would have to run again. As long as we live!

AMY: No we wouldn't! Not if they didn't know where to find us. Will, Will, I'm begging you, please, let's go.

WILL: I can't.

AMY: Don't try and be a hero. You don't have to be a hero, not for me!

WILL: I'm not trying to be a hero. If you think I like this, you're crazy! Look Amy, this is my town, I've got friends here. I'll swear in a bunch of special deputies and with a posse behind me, maybe there won't even be any trouble.

AMY: You know they'll be trouble.

WILL: Then, it's better to have it here. [Amy walks away] I'm sorry, honey, I know how you feel about it.

AMY: Do you?

WILL: Of course I do. I know it's against your religion. Sure I know how you feel.
AMY: But you're doing it, just the same. Oh Will, we were married just a few minutes ago. We've got our whole lives ahead of us, doesn't that mean anything to you?

WILL: You know I've only got an hour and I've got lots to do. Stay at the hotel until it's over.

AMY: No, I won't be here when it's over. You're asking me to wait an hour to find out if I'm going to be a wife or a widow! I say it's too long to wait. I won't do it!

WILL: Amy!

AMY: I mean it! If you won't go with me now, I'll be on that train when it leaves here.

WILL: I've got to stay. [Amy walks out the door.]

A LESSON IN CIVICS   [Scene runs from 16:45 to 18:18, track 5]

[Will enters the building of the Judge. He is packing up to leave the town before Frank Miller returns at noon.]

JUDGE: You've forgotten that I'm the man who passed sentence on Frank Miller? You shouldn't have come back, Will. It's stupid.

WILL: I figured I had to. I figured I had to stay.

JUDGE: You figured wrong.

WILL: I can deputize a posse. Ten to twelve guns is all I need.

JUDGE: My intuition tells me otherwise.

WILL: Why?

JUDGE: No time for a lesson in civics, my boy. In the 5th century B.C., the citizens of Athens having suffered grievously under a tyrant managed to depose and banish him. However, when he returned some years later, with an army of mercenaries, those same citizens not only opened the gates for him but stood by while he executed members of the legal government. Similar thing happened about eight years ago in a town called Indian Falls. I escaped there only through the intercession of a lady of somewhat dubious reputation and the cost of a very handsome ring that once belonged to my mother. Unfortunately, I have no more rings.

WILL: You're a judge!

JUDGE: Been a judge many times in many towns. And I hope to live to be a judge again.

WILL: I can't tell you what to do.

JUDGE: Why must you be so stupid, Will? Have you forgotten what he is? Have you forgotten what he's done to people? Have you forgotten that he's crazy? Don't you remember what he sat in that chair and said, "You'll never hang me. I'll come back. I'll kill you, Will Kane, I swear it, I'll kill you!"

HARVEY, 1    [Scene runs from 19:45 to 22:50, track 6]

WILL: Johnny, why aren't you in church?

BOY: Why ain't you?

WILL: Look, will you do something for me.


WILL: Go find Joe Henderson, Sam Fuller, and Mart Howe and tell them I want them here.

HARVEY: Right.

WILL: Then go find Harv Pell.

HARVEY: You don't have to do that here I am.

WILL: Where you been?


WILL: You know what's doing?


WILL: Then come on, we've got lots to do.

HARVEY: Now hold up a second. Now, this ain't really your job, you know?

WILL: That's what everybody keeps telling me.

HARVEY: Just listen a second.

WILL: All right. I'm listening.

HARVEY: Now this is the way I see it. If you'd gone, with the new marshal not being here until tomorrow, I'd be in charge around here. Am I right?

WILL: Right.

HARVEY: Well, tell me this then -- If I'm good enough to hold down the job when there's trouble, how come the city fathers didn't trust me with it permanent?

WILL: I don't know.

HARVEY: Don't you?


HARVEY: That's funny. I figured you carried a lot of weight

WILL: Maybe they didn't ask me. Maybe they figured you were too young.

You think I'm too young too?

WILL: You sure act like it sometimes, come on.

HARVEY: It's very simple,Will. All you got to do is tell the old boys when they come that I'm the new marshal. And tomorrow they can tell the other fellow they're sorry, but the job's filled.

WILL: You really mean it, don't you?


WILL: Well, I can't do it.

HARVEY: Why not?

WILL: You don't know, it's no use in me telling you.

HARVEY: You mean you won't do it.

WILL: Have it your way.

HARVEY: All right, the truth is you talked against me from the start. You've been sore about me and Helen Ramirez right along, ain't ya?

WILL: You and Helen Ramirez? It so happens I didn't know, and it doesn't mean anything to me one way or the other, you ought to know that.

HARVEY: Yeah, you've been washed up for more than a year. You go out and get yourself married, only you can't stand anybody taking your place there can you? Especially me.

WILL: You're a - I haven't got time, Har.

HARVEY: OK, then let's get down to business. You want me to stick, you put the word in for me like I said.

WILL: Sure I want you to stick, but I'm not buying it. It's got to be up to you.

[Harvey takes off his star and leaves it on Will's desk before he departs.]

MRS. RAMIREZ   [Scene runs from 28:20 to 29:45, track 8]

[Scene is in Helen Ramirez's rooms. She has summoned her business partner, Mr. Weaver. Mr. Weaver runs a store; she is his silent partner.]

RAMIREZ: Come in, Mr. Weaver.

WEAVER: Hello, Mrs. Ramirez.

RAMIREZ: Hello, Mr. Weaver. Sit down, please.

WEAVER: Thanks. Is there anything wrong, Mrs. Ramirez?


WEAVER: Then why did you send for me?

RAMIREZ: I'm leaving town. I want to sell this store. You want to by me out?

WEAVER: Well, how much did you want?

RAMIREZ: Two thousand. I think that's fair.

WEAVER: Well, it's fair all right but I couldn't raise that much right now.

RAMIREZ: How much can you raise?

WEAVER: Oh, a thousand dollars.

RAMIREZ: All right. You can pay Sam the rest in six months. He can get it to me. A deal?

WEAVER: Yes ma'am!

RAMIREZ: All right Mr. Weaver, thank you. [Mr. Weaver rises to leave.]

WEAVER: Mrs. Ramirez, I want to thank you for everything. I mean, when you first called and put the deal to me about staking me in the store and being a silent partner. You know my wife thought, uh, what I really mean to say is that you've been real decent to me right along and I want you to know I've been honest with you.

RAMIREZ: I know you have, Mr. Weaver. Goodbye.

WEAVER: Goodbye, Mrs. Ramirez, and good luck to you.

RAMIREZ: Thank you.

MRS. RAMIREZ, FRANK MILLER & WILL KANE [Scene runs from 32:27 to 33:27, track 9]

[Amy, waiting in the hotel library, has seen Will go up to see Mrs. Ramirez. Amy walks up to the hotelkeeper to find out more about Mrs. Ramirez.]

AMY: May I ask you something?

CLERK: Sure.

AMY: Who is Miss Ramirez?

CLERK: Mrs. Ramirez? She used to be a friend of your husband's a while back. Before that, she was a friend of Frank Miller's.

AMY: I see. Thank you. You don't like my husband, do you?


AMY: Why?

CLERK: Lots of reasons. One thing this place was always busy when Frank Miller was around. I'm not the only one. There's plenty of people around here think he has a comeuppance coming. You asked me ma'am so I'm telling you.

[Scene runs from 43:30 to 45:45 and 46:14 to 51:00, track 12]

[Will is walking to the town church in hopes of recruiting a posse.]

PARSON: Our text today is from Malachi, chapter four. Oh, behold, the day cometh that shall burn as an oven, and all the proud and all that do wickedness. [The door opens and Will enters.] Yes?

WILL: I'm sorry, Parson. I don't want to disturb the services.

PARSON: You already have. You don't come to this church very often, marshal. And when you got married today, you didn't see fit to be married here. What could be so important to bring you here now?

WILL: I need help. It's true I haven't been a church-going man and maybe that's a bad thing. And I didn't get married here today 'cause my wife's a Quaker. But I came here for help because, because there are people here.

PARSON: I'm sorry, marshal. Say what you have to say.

WILL: Maybe some of you already know it, but if you don't, it looks like Frank Miller is coming back on the noon train. I need all the special deputies I can get.

MAN: Well, what are we waiting for? [Rises and walks with others to Will] Let's go!

MAN 2: Hold it a minute! Hold it! Before we go rushing out into something that ain't going to be so pleasant, let's make sure we know what this is all about. What I want to know is this -- ain't it true the Kane ain't no longer marshal? And ain't it true there's personal trouble between him and Miller?

[Commotion takes over the church]

JONAS HENDERSON: All right! All right! Quiet everybody! There's a difference of opinion, let everyone have a say! But let's do it like grown-up people. And let's get all the kids out of the building. [The children leave the church]

[Scene runs from 46:14 to 51:00]

MAN: I say it don't really matter if there is anything personal between Miller and the marshal here. We all know who Miller is and what Miller is! What's more, we're wasting time!

JONAS HENDERSON: All right! Hoyt.

HOYT: Yes. We all know who Miller is. But we put him away once. And who saved him from hanging? The politicians up north! I say this is their mess, let them take care of it!

JONAS HENDERSON: [calling on another man who wants to speak] Clare.

CLARE: Well, I say this. We've been paying good money right along for a marshal and deputies. Now the first time there's any trouble, we're supposed to take care of it ourselves. Well what have we been paying for all this time? I say we're not peace officers, this is not our job!

MAN: I've been saying right along we ought to have more deputies. If we did, we wouldn't be facing this thing now. [Church erupts]

JONAS HENDERSON: Just a minute, just a minute! Quiet, everybodykeep it orderly. You had your hand up, Ezra.

EZRA: I can't believe I've heard some of the things that have been said here. You all ought to be ashamed of yourselves. Sure, we paid this man and he was the best marshal this town ever had. It ain't his trouble, it's ours. I tell you, if we don't do what's right, we're going to have plenty more trouble. So there ain't but one thing to do now and you all know what that is.

JONAS HENDERSON: Go ahead, Jimmy.

JIMMY: This whole thing has been handled wrong. Here's those three killers walking the streets bold as brass. Why didn't you arrest them marshal? Why didn't you put them in jail where they ought to be? Then we would only have Miller to worry about instead of the four of them.

WILL: They haven't done anything to arrest them for, Mr. Trumble. They haven't done anything. There's no law against them sitting on a bench at the depot.

WOMAN: I can't listen to any more of this. What is the matter with you people? Don't you remember when a decent woman couldn't walk down the street in broad daylight? Don't you remember when this wasn't a fit place to bring up a child? How can you sit here and talk and talk and talk like this?

MAN: What are we getting so excited about? How do we know Miller is on that train anyway?

JONAS HENDERSON: Oh we can be pretty sure he's on it. Time's getting short. Parson, you got anything to say?

PARSON: I don't know. The commandments say thou shall not kill. But we hire men to go out and do it for us. The right and the wrong seem pretty clear here. But if you're asking me to tell my people to go out and kill and maybe get themselves killed, I'm sorry, I don't know what to say. I'm sorry.

JONAS HENDERSON: All right. I'll say this. What this town owes Will Kane here, it can never pay with money. And don't ever forget it. He's the best marshal ever had, maybe the best marshal we'll ever have. So if Miller comes back here today, it's our problem, not his. It's our problem because this is our town. We've made it with our own hands, out of nothing. And if we want to keep it decent, keep it growing, we've got to think mighty clear here today. We've got to have the courage to do what we think is right. No matter how hard it is! All right. There's going to be fighting when Kane and Miller meet, and somebody's going to get hurt, that's for sure. Now, people up north are thinking about this town. Thinking mighty hard, thinking about sending money down here to put up stores and build factories. It would mean a lot to this town, an awful lot. But if they're going to read about shooting and killing in the streets, what are they going to think then? I'll tell you. They're going to think this is just another wide-open town. Everything we worked for will be wiped out. In one day, this town will be set back five years. And I don't think we can let that happen.

Mind you, you all know how I feel about this man. He's a mighty brave man, a
good man. He didn't have to come back here today. And for his sake, and the
sake of this town, I wish he hadn't. Because if he's not here when Miller comes, my hunch is there won't be any trouble. Not one bit. Tomorrow we'll have a new marshal and if we can all agree here to offer him our services, I think we can handle anything that comes along. To me that makes sense. To me that's the only way out of this. Will, I think you better go while there is still time. It's better for you and it's better for us. [The church is quiet]

WILL: Thanks. [He leaves the church with no help]

MART   [Scene runs from 52:08 to 54:40, track 13]

WILL: I sent the kid to find you. Didn't he come?

MART: He was here.

WILL: You've been my friend all my life. You got me this job. You made them send for me. Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to be like you, Mart. You've been a law man all your life.

MART: Yeah, all my life. It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the jurys turn 'em loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. And if you're honest, you're poor your whole life and in the end you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star.

WILL: Listen, the Judge has left town. Harvey's quit, and I'm having trouble getting deputies. It figures.

MART: It's all happened too sudden. People got to talk themselves into law and order before they do anything about it. Maybe because down deep they don't really care. They just don't care.

WILL: What'll I do, Mart?

MART: I was hoping you wouldn't come back.

WILL: You know why I came back.

MART: Not to commit suicide.

WILL: Sometimes, sometimes prison changes a man.

MART: Not him. This is all planned. That's why they're all here. Get out, Will. Get out.

WILL: Will you come down to that depot with me?

MART: No. You know how I feel about you, but I ain't going with you. Seems like a man with busted knuckles didn't need arthritis too. No, I couldn't do nothing for you. You'd be worried about me. You'd get yourself killed worring about me. It's too one-sided like it is.

WILL: So long, Mart.

MART: So long.

[Will leaves]

MART: It's all for nothing, Will. It's all for nothing.

MRS. RAMIREZ & MRS. KANE   [Scene runs from 55:16 to 57:40, track 14]

[Amy walks up the stairs to room 3 to speak with Mrs. Ramirez]

RAMIREZ: Come in. [Amy walks in.] Yes?

AMY: Mrs. Ramirez. I'm Mrs. Kane.

RAMIREZ: I know.

AMY: May I come in?

RAMIREZ: If you like. Sit down Mrs. Kane.

AMY: No thank you.

RAMIREZ: What do you want?

AMY: Oh please. It's just that I'm afraid if I sat down, I wouldn't be able to get up again.


AMY: It wasn't easy for me to come here.


AMY: Look, Mrs. Ramirez, Will and I were married an hour ago. We were all packed and ready to leave and then this thing happened and he wouldn't go. I did everything -- I pleaded, I threatened, I just couldn't reach him.

RAMIREZ: And now?

AMY: That man downstairs, the clerk, he said things about you and Will. I've been trying to understand why he wouldn't go with me and now all I can think of is it's got to be because of you.

RAMIREZ: What do you want from me?

AMY: Let him go. He still has a chance. Let him go.

RAMIREZ: I cannot help you.

AMY: Please.

RAMIREZ: He isn't staying for me. I haven't spoken to him for a year until today. I am leaving on the same train you are.

AMY: Then what is it? Why is he staying?

RAMIREZ: If you don't know, I cannot explain it to you.

AMY: Thank you anyway. You've been very kind.

RAMIREZ: What kind of woman are you? How can you leave him like this? Does the sound of guns frighten you that much?

AMY: No, Mrs. Ramirez, I've heard guns. My father and my brother were killed by guns. They were on the right side but that didn't help them any when the shooting started. My brother was nineteen, I watched him die. That's when I became a Quaker. I don't care who's right and who's wrong. There's got to be some better way for people to live. Will knows how I feel about it.

[She goes to leave.]

RAMIREZ: Just a minute. Are you going to wait for the train downstairs?

AMY: Yes.

RAMIREZ: Why don't you wait here?


HARVEY, 2   [Scene runs from 57:56 to 101:25, track 15]

BARKEEP: Well, I've got no use for Kane, but I'll say this: He's got guts.

Man: Mighty broad-minded, Joe.

[Barkeep walks over to Harvey Pell, who is drinking alone, and takes a seat with him.]

BARKEEP: What about you, Harv. I always figured you for guts. I never gave you any credit for brains until now.

HARVEY: What's that mean?

BARKEEP: Nothing. Only, it takes a smart man to know when to back away.

HARVEY: If I can't pick my company when I drink in here, I ain't coming in here no more.

BARKEEP: OK. All right. The boy with the tin star. All right, if that's the way you want it.

BARKEEP: [To the other men at the bar] All right boys, what are you gonna have?

[Will walks out to the stables and looks at a horse, perhaps thinking still about riding out of town. Harvey follows him into the stables.]

HARVEY: Put a saddle on him Kane. Go on, saddle him up. He'll go a long way before he tires. That's what you were thinking, wasn't it.

WILL: Kinda.

HARVEY: You scared?

WILL: I guess so.

HARVEY: Sure, stands to reason. Come on. Let me help you.

WILL: Seems like all everybody and his brother wants is to get me out of town.

HARVEY: Nobody wants to see you get killed.

HARVEY: Hold on. Where you going?

WILL: I don't know. Back to the office I guess.

HARVEY: Oh no. You're getting on that horse and you're getting out. What's the matter with you? You were ready to do it yourself and you said so.

WILL: Look, Harv. I thought about it because I was tired. You think about a lot of things when you're tired. But I can't do it.


WILL: I don't know.

HARVEY: Get on that horse Will.

WILL: Why's it so important to you? You don't care if I live or die.

HARVEY: Come on.

WILL: Don't shove me, Harv. I'm tired of being shoved.

[Harvey hits him and they fight.]

HERB [Scene runs from 1:05:09 to 1:06:39, track 16]

[Will walks back into the marshal's office where Herb is waiting. Herb has volunteered earlier to be a part of the posse that takes on Frank Miller and his gang.]

HERB: Will.

WILL: I guess I forgot about you, Herb. I'm sure glad you're here.

HERB: I couldn't figure out what was keeping you. Time's getting pretty short.

WILL: Sure is.

HERB: When are the other boys going to get here? We gotta make plans.

WILL: The other boys? There aren't any other boys, Herb. It's just you and me.

HERB: You're joking.

WILL: No. I couldn't get anybody.

HERB: I don't believe it. This town ain't that low.

WILL: I couldn't get anybody.

HERB: Then it's just you and me?

WILL: Guess so.

HERB: You and me versus Miller and all the rest of them.

WILL: That's right. Do you want out, Herb?

HERB: Well, it isn't that I want out, no. You see, look I'll tell you the truth, I didn't figure on anything like this, Will!

WILL: Neither did I!

HERB: I volunteered. You know I did. You didn't have to come to me, I was ready. Sure, I'm ready now. But this is different Will. This ain't like what you said it was going to be. This is just plain committing suicide and for what, why me, I'm no lawman! I just live here. I've got nothing personal against nobody. I've got no stake in this.

WILL: I guess not.

HERB: There's a limit how much you can ask a man. I've got a wife and kids. What about my kids?

WILL: Go on home to your kids, Herb.

HERB: You get some of the other fellas, Will, and I'll still go through with it.

WILL: Go on home, Herb! [Herb leaves]

THE SHOWDOWN   [Scene runs from 1:22:00 to 1:24:38 to End, track 20]

[The streets are deserted. Frank Miller and his gang have come after Will. Ben Miller and Jack Colby have already been killed by Will. Pierce and Frank Miller remain. Although Amy went to the train with Mrs. Ramirez, she decides not to leave and returns to the marshal's office. Will has taken refuge in a store. Miller and Pierce continue to fire at Will. As Pierce reloads to continue firing at Will, Amy shoots him in the back. As a result, Frank Miller sees Amy and takes her hostage.]

FRANK: All right Kane, come on out. Come on or your friend here will get it like Pierce did.

WILL: I'll come out. Let her go.

FRANK: Soon as you walk through that door. Come on, I'll hold my fire.

[Will comes out. Amy attacks Frank Miller, gouging at this eyes. He throws her to the ground. Will shoots Frank Miller as he tries to shoot Will. Frank Miller is killed. Will lifts Amy up off the ground and they embrace. The townspeople come out into the streets. A young boy pulls Will's coach up and Amy gets on. Will takes his marshal's star and drops it on the ground. Will and Amy leave the town behind.]
