  Ok, then, I'll let you in on a secret.  Colonel Mortimer can read minds so he just read the bank manager's mind about the reward.  It's a little known deleted scene that didn't make the final cut that reveals Mortimer's secret.   Grin

Was this before or after the scene with the gang trying to break into the bank's ATM machine?  Wink

Back to subject:

That's what the Colonel says to Il monco after having shot him at the neck is the Bank of El Paso' reward for retrieving the stolen money. But how's he able to know that as the heist was just a few minutes before?


I seem to remember that outfits like Wells Fargo & Co., Butterfield Overland Stage Co., various railroads, and banks put out general notices stating reward amounts offered for the arrest & conviction or pecentages of the stolen amounts for the recovery of money etc., etc.

About what Tim was trying to do he probably is the only one who knows it. Anyway there's no reason why he should come doing it in my thread: he can open up one of his own and horse around as much as he likes.

  titoli, I'm sorry if I messed up your thread, like everyone said it was just an innocent joke, and I didn't intend to piss everyone off like this. I made a joke, apparently a bad one, and I'm sorry once again if your thread was thrown off-kilter.

Yeah, but the problem is: could they do this before the fact, as the case in question warrants? Was it good policy let the prospects clients know that the Bank wasn't impregnable?

that impregnable part was just an early form of advertizing I think or maybe even wishful thinking, not to really be taken literally.

Well just as the Union Pacific did why wouldn't they put out the notice as another form of deterant.

Surely not by the thieves. But can you imagine a bank advertising the solidity of her own security and adding in the same line"and in case of theft we'll put out warrants in the amount of $..."?

Well I think... That Mortimer a) has the experience to have a good idea of what the reward would be and/or b) asked the law or the banker what the reward would be. To get that information, he could have said that he was going after them, and they would be inclined to tell him the reward in order to get him to chase them as hard as he can.

Yes, but the problem he's too definite. He doesn't adopt the conditional tense.

He couldn't have made the question without making the banker (and even more the sheriff) suspicious. Also, he wouldn't have received an answer for the reasons I brought.

I agree with your arguement about the conditional tense. He was too definite, but I must say, I don't understand why he wouldn't get an answer. Allow me to try to explain.

From the sheriff ot banker's point of view, if Mortimer came to them saying he was going to get the money for them, as long as there was a reward, they would be happy to tell him "40,000 dollars if you get all the money back." Besides,  why is that information to be guarded so closely? What can they lose by telling bounty killers what their reward will be? That, sir, is what I don't understand.

I thought you were referring to what Mortimer could have asked banker\sheriff before the heist. As I have already explained, "after" the heist he just wouldn't have the time to.

Ah, I see.

Well, my only thought is he stuck his head in the sheriffs office and asked before chasing after Monco.
