Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

Synopsis: A family scandal causes a wealthy and powerful Mexican rancher to make the pronouncement--'Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia!' Two of the bounty-hunters thus dispatched encounter a local piano-player in their hunt for information. The piano-player does a little investigating on his own and finds out that his girlfriend knows of Garcia's death and last resting place. Thinking that he can make some easy money and gain financial security for he and his (now) fiancée, they set off on this goal. Of course, this quest only brings him untold misery, in the form of trademark Peckinpah violence.

Well, cheers, money...

How do you like that beer?

You know they brought, uh,

German Burgermeisters over here

back in about eighteen

Who knows? Long time ago.

Some of the best beet in the

world comes from Mexico.

How good you are.

How you guys like baseball?

Take her away.

I'm beginning to like basketball lately,

it's a faster game,

you know what I mean?

How about that Bill Russel on the

Celtic, Nineteen sixty-nine?

Now, there was a ball player.

You've, uh, worked around

here quite awhile, huh?

Yeah, about six years.

Started up in the Black Cat in T.J.

Now there was a nice place.

Classy place, classy

people came in there.

One night Paulette Goddard came in...

and asked me if I knew...

You know a lot of

studs around here?

Who you looking for?

Well, like I said, an old buddy

of ours, a very close chum,

like to meet up with him again.

He's quite a ladies' man.

His name is Alfredo Garcia.

Maybe you can help is find him.

He's about thirty. Sometimes

he calls himself Al...Garcia.

He speaks English,

Spanish and a little French.

Quite a stud, huh?

I'll be a son-of-a-b*tch.

You got me.

I do recognize the name.

You know the name Garcia?

Sure, it's like Jones or Smith.

We're at the Hotel Camino Real,

if you come up with anything

we'd be glad to see you.

Bring that with you.

Well, don't worry,

if he's alive, I'll find him.

Uh, alive isn't our problem.

Well, uh, how about dead or alive?

How about that?

Dead, just dead.

What would you like to hear?

I didn't catch your name, Mister?

Dobbs. Fred C. Dobbs.


What's up?

When was the last time

Al Garcia was around?

One week. At the most a week.

You know anybody around here that...

might know where he is?


He has stayed with her.


No sh*t?

I'll be dammed.

Ola, Benny.

Smiley. Long wat from Durango,

aren't you, Pard?

Ah, lemme see.

Things have changed.

Hey... put my shoe back.

Get up.

Excuse me.

What are you doing here so early?

It's later than you think, Chula.

How'd you like a black eye?

What have you been drinking?

You're a lying, cheating,

no-good two-bit b*tch.

How's your, how's your cold?

What cold?

The one you had last week when

I couldn't see you for three days.

Ha, what'd the matter?

Ha, waht's the matter... Benny?

Ah, good evening.

Yeah, well, give me a double

bourbon with a champagne back

and none of your Texano bullshit...

now shove off.

Three days... and three nights.

Alfredo Garcia.

Si, Alfredo.

I feel very bad, uh...

Give me a chance I'll

explain it to you, olkay?

Do... it.

Well, he was here and

we spent some time together.

We were saying goodbye...


It took a little time.

If I ever get my hands on him

I'm gonna kill him.

I'm afraid it's too late.

When he left here he was very

drunk, and, uh, near Salti1 19...

his car refused the road

and the rocks killed him.

Jesus Christ.


I gotta go, Elita.

-Do you have to go?

-See you later.


Come in.


Give him your number.

Eleven. Lucky.

Bet you guys didn't expect

to see me so soon, huh?

You're wasting our time.

What have you got?

You don't mess around, do you?

Right down to business.

It's really very simple.

If you give us the information we want,

as to where we can find Alfredo Garcia,

we'll give you a thousand dollars.

If your information is wrong... you,

too are wrong... dead wrong.

Well, you see,

he's uh, friend of a friend.

And I'd like to know

what you want him for.

Well. that's not true. Uh, I mean,

I gotta tell somebody something right?

You're interested in money, aren't you?

Money you can spend.

Yes, sir. lndirectly.

I mean, there are other things.

Like I'd like to stay alive.
