Decision at Sundown (1957)
Noah Beery Jr.: Sam
Sam : [to Bart] Oh, well, we'll both be as dead as a pulled beef by suppertime anyway, but I sure ain't hankerin' to try to argue my way past old St. Peter on an empty stomach.
[Discussing Sundown's town boss Tate Kimbrough]
Bart Allison : Is he a big man in Sundown?
Sam : The biggest! He's got that town in his fist and he's squeezin' it hard. Ain't heard folks complain much. Guess they're all scared.
Bart Allison : I'm glad to hear he's doing so well. When a man's riding high, the ground comes up and hits him a lot harder when he falls.
Sam : You just stood up in church and told Kinbriugh you was goin' to kill him? Bart, you must be plum crazy!
Bart Allison : I'm doin' this my own way, Sam. For three years I've hunted Kimbrough, but he didn't know it. Before I settle with him, I want him to know he's bein' hunted.
Sam : [after a bullet shot through the window whistles near Sam's head] You ain't huntin' him no more. He's huntin' you.
Sam : Bart, I think you done a fool thing. After all that searching around, it seems like you would have been satisfiedl to just kill him on sight.
Bart Allison : Even a rattler gives a warning.
Sam : Oh, yeah, well, if they give as much advance warning as you're givin' that Kimbrough, rattlesnakes would be as out-of-date as them dinosaurs.
