Sometimes, the white man speaks the truth.

Like, one in 20, 25 times.

I believe this is one of those times.

He knew your mother, White Knife.

Maybe he can give you some peace.

Talk to him.

Maybe after I close my eyes to dream.


Oh, no.

One look at me, and you knew your old man

had done a lot of bad things, didn't ya?

I cheated men, I killed men...

So I deserve whatever's comin' to me.

The only one that ever saw any good in me

was your mother.


Why have you come here?

Not a man for chitchat, huh?

Well, me neither.

Kid, I'm dying...

of consumption.

Don't worry...

I'm not looking

for no big father-son hoo-ah.

"I love you, son. "

"I love you too, Daddy. "


I've come for a more tangible reason.

Tommy, I've been stealing from folks

since I was nine years old...

and that's the way I've amassed

a good little fortune.

I wanna do something

decent with it.

I want to give it to you, son.

I don't want your money.

But maybe you could give...

$50,000 to these nice Injuns

who raised you.

We'll take it.

Go back to bed.


Seriously, though,

we'll take it.

Look, it's buried in the meadow

just up the trail,

next to a big ol' pine tree.

What do you say

we go dig it up in the morning

and start playing Santa Claus?

I don't remember much about my mother...

but I do remember her telling me...

you were dead.

Maybe it was because...

she didn't want

you to come looking for me.

She was a smart lady.

Only stupid thing she ever did

was fall for me.

Meeting Betty Dunson...

was the luckiest thing

that ever happened to me.

From the first day I laid eyes on her...

she was bawlin' out this...

half-drunk, big ol' burly blacksmith...

down at Silver Canyon.

She's been the only one, Tommy.

Mom had a temper?
