Even Stoddard was in agreement with other townsfolk and Tom that the two were almost betrothed:. Doniphon: I'm tellin' ya that Hallie's my girl. I been buildin' that brand-new room and porch for her, for when we get married.
Stoddard: Well Tom, I guess everybody pretty much takes that for granted. Doniphon: Everybody except Hallie, maybe you. Reportedly, Hallie had come to Tom after speaking to Peabody and was "frettin' herself sick because you were gonna get yourself killed facin' up to Liberty Valance. During a target-practice sequence, Doniphon tossed a paint can into the far distance and challenged inexperienced "gunslinger" Stoddard to shoot it while offering markmanship coaching - with a condescending and abusive rather than helpful tone:.
When Stoddard missed twice with his "popgun," Doniphon wanted to show off with his own revolver. After Stoddard placed three other paint cans on corral posts, Doniphon shot and deliberately splattered Ransom's suit with paint from the last of three targeted buckets, and then explained how the "trick" should teach him a lesson - he was suggesting inadvertently that he may have The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance - Gene Pitney - The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (Vinyl) fight and defeat Valance through trickery which actually occurred later on :.
I hate tricks, Pilgrim, but that's what you're up against with Valance. He's almost as fast as I am. Ransom gave a growling response and slugged Doniphon in the jaw, sending him to the ground: "I don't like tricks myself, so that makes us even!
Inside the rowdy gathering after order was restored, attorney at law Ransom Stoddard was called upon to chair the meeting.
Although denied even a beer, press man Peabody reluctantly agreed to keep notes. Positioned awkwardly under a stairway, Stoddard used a wooden mallet [a bung starter, used to loosen the stopper bung out of barrels, kegs or casks] as a makeshift, order-restoring gavel. Stoddard explained the purpose of the gathering and coordinated the nominations and voting, for two delegates to attend a regional Territorial Convention in Capitol City:.
We're here to elect two delegates, because the growing population south of the Picket Wire entitles us to two. Now, these two delegates will represent us in the Territorial Convention for statehood You know the issue. The cattle interests want to keep this Territory an open range And we, that means everybody in this room, we're for statehood!
We The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance - Gene Pitney - The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (Vinyl) statehood, because statehood means the protection of our farms The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance - Gene Pitney - The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (Vinyl) our fences, and it means schools for our children and it means progress for the future! Now, we'll proceed with the nominations. Now remember, you can nominate as many as you feel like, and in order to show you how this procedure works, I'm gonna step out of the chair for a minute.
That's parliamentary law. You can do that. I'll step out of the chair, and, uh, l'll make my, uh, I'll make the first nomination. I'd like to nominate a man who I think is the only man in Shinbone who has the right qualifications The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance - Gene Pitney - The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (Vinyl) lead us The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance - Gene Pitney - The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (Vinyl) our fight for statehood.
Now, I could stand up here and talk about this fella all day, but I know that everybody in this room could do the same thing, and I don't think that's necessary. I nominate Tom Doniphon. Cheers and applause. Although nominated, Doniphon quickly refused his candidacy for personal reasons: "I refuse the nomination Personal plans.
Suddenly, horses approached and Valance and his gang tried to crash the meeting, although were told by the mayor that they were ineligible to vote because they didn't live south of the Picket Wire.
Valance quipped: "I live where I hang my hat," and barged in. Identifies Killers. The next nomination was for Ransom Stoddard himself, seconded by Doniphon who mentioned Stoddard was a perfect candidate because he knew the law and "throws a good punch. Although the motion was overruled by Doniphon, the nomination was allowed by Stoddard, noting Valance's "address unknown. Peabody, the notorious "town drunk," who protested his selection:.
No ya don't. I-I'm a newspaperman, not a politician! No, politicians are my meat. I build 'em up. I tear 'em down. But I wouldn't be one. I couldn't be one. It'd destroy me. Give me a drink Good people of Shinbone.
I-I-I'm, uh, your conscience. I'm the still, small voice that thunders in the night. I'm your watchdog that howls against the wolves! I'm, I'm your - your Father Confessor! After the nominations were closed, Valance accosted everyone and waved his outstretched bullwhip before the vote was taken: "You sodbusters are a brave bunch when you're together, but don't vote any way now that you'll regret later, when you're alone.
Valance was outraged: "That vote don't mean a thing. He threatened Stoddard and baited him with a gunfight duel-challenge that evening on Shinbone's main street:. You got a choice, dishwasher. Either you get outta town, or tonight, you be out in that street alone. You be there, and don't make us come and get ya. Doniphon was resigned to Stoddard's endangerment, with so little gun practice: "Well, he called it plain.
Too bad you didn't come to me sooner with that gun. He said he would prepare Pompey to await him in a buckboard and take him away, but Stoddard didn't answer. All rights reserved.
