Ain't you off the reservation,

red ass?

I'm afraid I have to leave now.

Forgive me for it.

You dropped this coin on your way in, Sir.

What are we doing in the reservation?

This is where it happened.

I didn't do it!

I was only accompanying the commissioner

back to the reservation

It happened so fast...

I didn't know where the fire came from.

They attacked him right in the back.

He tried to say something.

April Morning...

Then I saw the Indians.

I knew it wasn't them who did it.

They loved that old man.

Mr. Collier was...

he was like a father to them.

All the things he did for them.

He was like a father to everyone,

even to me.

What are you gonna do with me?

Why did you bring me here?

You were with him when he died.

What did he say?

April Morning.

Then why are you so scared?

You're a crazy Indian!

He tried to tell us something.

What did he mean?

I told you...

I don't know!

Well then find out!

By tomorrow.

Mr. Griffin, we've been waiting

impatiently for you

Show the lieutenant!

The general will be pleased.

- Where is His Excellency?

- This way.

Come, fools,

gather the guns!


Welcome, Mr. Griffin.


Your Excellency.

Mr. Griffin has delivered

the rifles, my general.

Sit down, Mr. Griffin.

Sit down.

You are a man of your word, Sir.

Tell me are you, general, to be

a man of your word, too.

Many years ago...

... I promised my mother

that one day...

... it would become governor

of this province.

With your guns...

... I will keep that promise.

Before doing that general...

Try to remember the promise you made to me!

Lieutenant, what was it

we promised Mr. Griffin?

Now you don't have to ask him,

you just take a moment and think.

Patience, Sir.

I'm thinking!

You made that promise to me

only a month ago.

You have no trouble remembering

a promise you made to your mother

many years ago.

A son's promise to his dying mother

is something sacred.

To forget would anger God.

Your Excellency,

God is in heaven.

I am here.

And I'm getting very angry.

You are blaspheme, Sir.

Now you take a moment and try

to remember, Your Excellency.

I remember nothing!

Then I'm leaving...

... and I'm taking my guns.

The guns are staying...

... and you are not leaving.

You want it all, don't you?

I have it all.

I have a hundred men

and you have six.


Lieutenant, you said they were

six with him altogether.

Oh it's nothing!

We are just getting a new general.

I'm gonna send you

more ammunition.

Bury him next to his mother.

You two, come!

Now you remember what to do

and when.

I'll cross the border in time

...for April Morning.

O.J., what you are doing?

I want It now!

Hit him again, O.J.

What does April Morning mean?

I don't know!

I only got till tomorrow.

One of you better come up with the answer!

How many lumps?

We should have killed him this morning.

He's only one man,

a lousy apache.

All right. You get him.

Get him!

You relax, O.J.

You'll have his scalp

for breakfast.

I hope you don't think I was too forward

... asking you to have dinner with me, captain.

- Not al all.

- I don't know what's come over me...

... I never speak to strangers.

- I'm sure.

- I come from a very

... strict family.

- Ah, yes?

- I never even kissed...

... a boy until I got my degree...

... in the finishing school.

Is that so?

The only reason I came out west...

... was to study the Indians,

savages fascinate me.

- How?

- The Indians are the only people

with truly strict morality.
