MAVERICK:

Jesus.

HORSE:

Oblivious.

SACK:

Half-a-dozen rattlers are moving out of the sack now.

Close by. Some of them are big, some of them are very

big. All of them have fangs.

MAVERICK:

struggling harder than ever, and he's actually making

more headway. It's exhausting labor. As he continues

his fight for life -MAVERICK

(V.O.)

It had been just a shitty week for

me from the beginning.

Now, FROM that -9A

A lone rider rides through dusty area up and down dips

in the road. It is Maverick. He rides a mule. Angel

follows and then Coop follows.

9B EXT. DUSTY CANYON -AFTERNOON 9B

Maverick rides his mule along dusty trail; as we PAN WITH

him a wagon train travels in opposite direction; kids

play poker in the f.g. --one smokes a corn cob pipe; we

CONTINUE PAN WITH Maverick and REVEAL the town of Crystal

River, a ferry coming across the river in the b.g.

MAVERICK (V.O.)

I was heading into Crystal River

to take some money from the bank.

Probably I should have expected

bad luck on the horizon when my

horse got stolen and I had to

replace it with something less

than a thoroughbred.

10 EXT. CRYSTAL RIVER -AFTERNOON 10

Crystal River. Not much of a place. Dusty. One main

street --and almost every storefront indicates that it

is either a saloon or a gambling hall.
