Well, Doc, how about it?

This man has a very bad leg.

You're telling me.

The vein in his right

leg is greatly enlarged.

See here.

Midway between the

kneecap and the ankle joint

there's an area of great congestion.

This vein is the cause

of all your trouble.

I've never seen a vein

like it in my life.

It's enormous.

What's the answer, Doc?

I ain't gonna lose my leg, am I, Doc?

I've had it ever since

I was a little kid.

Oh, of course not.

Just go out west a couple of months

and you'll be just as good as new.

Oh, thanks, Doc. The

leg is as good as new.

It feels great.

- Easy!

- It's all right.

We're heading west.

Boy, that sawbones had the right dope.

My leg feels swell.


What's the matter with that stuff?

Give me something with a jolt in it.

I'm tough!

Look, we're out west now,

so we've got to be tough.

Don't worry about us. We'll be tough.

We know what to do.

Okay, boys. Get western.

- Shoot you for the drink.

- Right.


- Shoot you for the drink.

- Throw.

You throw.

Hold it!


Here's your change.

There you are.

What's the matter with you guys?

What are you trying to...?

Hey. Easy, easy.

Smooth as silk.

Those jaspers down

there... Who are they?

I don't know, boss.

Nell, come here.

Go find out who those men are.

Doc Barker, I won't do it.

You won't do what?

You're forgetting who I

got locked up down there.

That's better.

- He's all right.

- Hello, boys.

What brings you to Coyote Pass?

Well, lady, it's my vein.

- Your vein?

- Biggest vein you ever saw.

Quirt, I always knew

there was gold around these parts.

Now see it... It's my

vein. Ain't it a whopper?

It certainly is.

You see, it's just halfway between...

It's all very interesting,

but I must go now.

I want to tell you

some more about my vein.

You can tell me. I'm Doc Barker.

Pleased to meet you, Doc.

This is right up your alley.

Did you ever see a vein

like this in all your life?

I should say not.

You know something?

I could do things with a vein like that.

- You mean, operate?

- That's right, partner.

We're really gonna work on it.

- No small-time stuff either.

- No?

If it's near the surface,

we'll use 20 men with pick and shovel.

Well, that might be... Listen, Doc!

And if the vein is any

deeper, we'll use dynamite.

Oh, no! Not on my vein!

The tinhorns around here will say

that Doc Barker ain't a big operator.

Well, they won't have

a leg like to stand at.

Neither will I.

Oh, mister, you're a card. You kill me!

Thanks anyway, Doc,

but we'll handle the vein ourselves.

Yeah. Come on, let's go, boys.

I saw it. It's worth millions.

Big operator... He ain't kidding.

- What's the matter?

- Come on.

I've got to talk to you. Follow me.

Go ahead, go ahead, come on.

Doc Barker is a no good crook.

He stolen the Red Dog

Saloon from me and my sisters

and he's left them up.


- Zell, Bell!

- Well, well!

Maybe these gentlemen would help us.

Please, let us out of here!

Doc Barker said if

we'll not get marry him

something terrible

going to happen to us.

Oh, don't worry, gals,

we'll get you out of here.

But how do you get the

keys from Doc Barker?

He keeps it in his coat pocket.

I'll get those keys, I'll

drive with that Doc Barker.

Actually I'll do, gal...

Hey, wait, listen fellas, come here!

Hey, I got a scene to make

Doc Barker take off his coat.

- You get the coat in here.

- Yeah.


Well, boys, drinks are on me.

Okay. Where is that bartender?

Oh, he's out. I'll fix the drinks.

Don't go away.

Let's ante a dollar.

Did you take care of the bartender?

Jack White

John Anthony White (né Gillis; born July 9, 1975) is an American singer and songwriter. He is best known as the lead singer and guitarist of the duo The White Stripes, but has also had success in other bands and as a solo artist. White has enjoyed consistent critical and popular success and is widely credited as one of the key artists in the garage rock revival of the 2000s. He has won twelve Grammy Awards, and all three of his solo albums have reached number one on the Billboard charts. Rolling Stone ranked him number 70 on its 2010 list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time". David Fricke's 2011 list ranked him at number 17. After moonlighting in several underground Detroit bands as a drummer, White founded The White Stripes with fellow Detroit native and then-wife Meg White in 1997. Their 2001 breakthrough album, White Blood Cells, brought them international fame with the hit single and accompanying music video "Fell in Love with a Girl". This recognition provided White opportunities to collaborate with famous artists, including Loretta Lynn and Bob Dylan. In 2006, White founded The Raconteurs with Brendan Benson, and in 2009 founded The Dead Weather with Alison Mosshart of The Kills. On April 24, 2012, White released his debut solo album, Blunderbuss. His second studio album, Lazaretto, was released on June 10, 2014. Both received wide commercial and critical acclaim. His third studio album, Boarding House Reach, was released on March 23, 2018. White is a board member of the Library of Congress' National Recording Preservation Foundation. His record label and studio Third Man Records releases vinyl recordings of his own work as well as that of other artists and local school children. Lazaretto holds the record for most first-week vinyl sales since 1991. White has an extensive collection of guitars and other instruments and has a preference for vintage items that often have connections to famous blues artists. He is a vocal advocate for analog technology and recording techniques. White values his privacy and has been known to create misdirection about his personal life. He and Meg White married in 1996, but divorced in 2000 before the height of the band's fame. They then began calling themselves siblings. He was later married to model and singer Karen Elson from 2005 to 2013; they have a son and daughter. He currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee. more…
