VIEW ON SKINNY DUBOIS

STANDING THERE IN THE DOORWAY, his nasty face eaten with

smallpox scars and he is looking at Delilah who is a fountain

of blood, looking at her coldly, and looking down at the

melee on the floor and, pointing the big Navy Colt in his

hand, he says,

SKINNY:

Get offa her, asshole.

And he says it so cold and with such authority that everything

goes quiet.

EXT. MAIN STREET - DAY

SNOW/MOONLIGHT/THE SHADOWY BUILDINGS and the silence of the

Nebraska winter except for the sound of the snowshoes.

The snow has obliterated the Main Street of Big Whiskey giving

the impression that the dark, low buildings are scattered at

random. The only structure with any sign of life is Greely's

Beer Garden and Billiards which shows a glowing window and

two horses out front and that is a hundred yards away from

the struggling silhouettes of the two men on snowshoes. The

big one is LITTLE BILL DAGGETT and he is very big, wrapped

in a huge bearskin robe.

The smaller one is CLYDE LEDBETTER who isn't small though he

has only one arm.

LITTLE BILL:

...wouldn't let you settle it, huh?

CLYDE:

Hell, you know how Skinny is. Says

he's gonna shoot 'em... an I says,

"Skinny, you can't do that," an' he

says, "Well, then get Little Bill

down here an' let's settle this" an'

I says, "Bill's sleepin', Skinny,"

an'...

They make their way in silence through the snow, getting

close now, close to Greely's and the lights.
