Clayton hits Bronc so hard he’s staggered backward.

6 EXT. CIRCLE R~B RANCH - DAY 6
MARSHAL JACK BELL, 60ish, heroic looking, on a large black
horse, and TWO DEPUTIES ride under arched timbers.
An iron CIRCLE R~B swings from the cross beam.
From the ranch house some distance away, RANDALL BRAGG, 50’s,
an imposing charismatic presence, steps off the porch. He
cradles a WINCHESTER .73.
From the corral, bunkhouse and barn, BRAGG’S MEN... join him.
Bell and his Deputies ride to a halt.
They meet in an open area of trampled dirt between the ranch
house and the barn.
Randall, I’m afraid I’m going to
have to bring two of your boys back
into town with me.
Most of Bragg’s dozen or so hands hang back behind him -
including Chalk and Bronc.
You’re out of your jurisdiction,
Marshal, beyond city limits. And
you’re trespassing on my land.
They murdered that Chicago fella
and raped and killed his wife. I’m
taking them in.
Bell studies the FACES of Bragg’s men.
One of them is a YOUNG MAN, barely 18.
Bell’s eyes rest on Chalk and Bronc (who sports a black eye).

Those two on the end, cut ‘em out.
