Editor's NoteIn a dusty, Prohibition-era Texas border town, a lone-wolf hit-man richochets between rival mobs, pinning his allegiance to whomever offers more money for his services. But when he sticks his neck out to help a woman, he ends up risking more than money--he risks developing a conscience. Hill patterned his film after Kurosawa's legendary 1961 YOJIMBO.
