Anybody around?

Good afternoon.

I I've got to get

some papers signe understand d here.


You speak English, because I...

- That's right.

- I speak English.


I want to go inland and

I got the papers.

I want to go inland and

I got papers here.

Identification of permission,

see, to go inland.

You have to sign it or something.

I'm looking for a man who might

have come through this way...

a few months ago. A man by

the name of Kallen...

Bob Kallen, Robert Kallen.

I'm sorry.

I want to ride south...

to arrest a man by the

name of Kallen.

That's right. Has he been

through here?

Wait a minute.

You and me, we're police.


Yeah, sure.

Thank you very much.

I guess that takes care

of it. So long.

You go mucha distancia?

I'm going down to a little

place called Cerralvo.

I understand he's hiding out

around there somewhere.

- So long.

- Adis.


You know where Cerralvo is?

Up that way?

Thanks very much.

Good morning.

Is this Cerralvo?


You speak English?

I'm looking for a man, Americano,

a gringo by the...

name of Kallen.

I just wondered if maybe...

Wait a minute!

Can I help you?

- Excuse me. L...

- Just a moment, seor.

My name's Hamish.

How do you do, seor?

I'm Father Ignatius.

How do you do, Father?

I guess the man I was talking to

didn't understand me.

That was Luis.

He does not speak English.

It is very unusual to see an

American in these parts.

You are traveling south?

That depends, Father. I'm

looking for somebody.

Someone of this village?

No. An American by the

name of Kallen.

A friend of yours?

No, he isn't, Father. You see...

I'm a lawman. I've come to take

him back to the States.

I know the man.

He is here. What has he done?

- Couple of shootings.

- Murder?

He's accused of it. He's

going to stand trial.

Kallen is a very strange man.

- I have not been happy to see him


- He's caused trouble?

He has not been trouble. My

people like him.

His father was Mexican, so

they understand him.

Ordinarily, I would be at peace

with him myself...

but there is another matter.

A woman.

She has left her parents'

house for him.

You see, this is my village.

The woman is one of my own

family. A cousin.

I have searched within

myself to know...

that it would be the same degree of

sin, were it anyone else.

But what Kallen is doing has

weakened me in the eyes of my...

and it is not good for them.

Father, I wouldn't know about it.

Has he been wearing his

guns down here?

All those times I have

seen him, no.

If he has not, he'll have them on

when I go for him.

Will there be shooting? You

will have to do this?

I don't want to. He's probably

better than me.

I hear he's better than most

people with a gun.

You are afraid?

I'd just as soon be home.

God is with you.

I never thought about that, Padre.

Where does he live?

You leave here and continue

through the village...

and a little way further,

it is a place...

in the clearing. You

cannot miss it.

Thank you, Father.

- Seor Hamish.

- Yes, Father?

- I am coming with you.

- No.

There are two lives here.

The man who is in your hands, and

the girl who is in mine.

We both serve the same law.

Seems to me a dead priest is about

as useless as a...

dead deputy, Father.

It is not far. I will

walk with you.

Hold it, Father.

- You better stay here, Father.

- No.

- He might start shooting.

- I told you, not when I am with you.

Wait a minute.



Where has he gone?

You don't speak Spanish?
