Silverado script
Silverado (1985)
Synopsis: Rambling man Emmett (Scott Glenn) assembles a group of misfit cowboys (Kevin Costner), (Kevin Kline, Danny Glover). After helping a group of settlers track down a pack of thieves, Emmett and his men descend on the troubled town of Silverado to seek their fortunes. Soon after arriving, they discover that the town has fallen into the grasp of greedy rancher Ethan McKendrick (Ray Baker) and corrupt Sheriff Cobb (Brian Dennehy) with whom many of Emmett's men have unfinished business.

Emmett listens, moves silently to the door, and opens it

carefully. WE FOLLOW him outside, out into the bright

sunlight, into the awesome promise of the American West.

EXT. SHACK - DAY

Emmett moves warily around the isolated shack. There are no

more attackers. He looks off into the distance. Two riderless

horses, galloping away, are the only moving things in the

empty landscape. A third saddled horse, a pinto, stands

nervously near Emmett's horse, which is tied to a stake.

Emmett walks to the body of the Man Outside and looks down

at him. He doesn't know him. He moves to the pinto and calms

it. He examines the distinctive brand on its flank, a circle

with two wavy lines beneath it. Emmett is clearly mystified.

He rests his arms on the saddle and stares after the

retreating horses.

THE MAIN TITLE BEGINS.

EXT. EMMETT RIDES (VARIOUS SHOTS) - DAY/NIGHT

Emmett travels, the saddled pinto in tow. He moves from high

mountain terrain down-country, through meadow and canyon. He

makes night camp near a rushing stream. The land flattens as

he approaches the desert. The sun beats at him as he dismounts

at the edge of a white-hot plain. He takes a short pull from

his canteen and squints off across the flat, empty space.

All he can see ahead is blinding sand and blue sky.

THE MAIN TITLE ENDS.

EXT. DESERT (SERIES OF SHOTS) - DAY
