Yes sir, and I loved the shocking ending. Lawman and Valdez is Coming are underappreciated westerns in my opinion, especially Lawman.

I actually liked this film very much. It's not a classic but it does have it's moments. It could have been so much better though.

A remake anyone to correct the end. No I wonder how Elmore Leonard's novel ended.

No I wonder how Elmore Leonard's novel ended.

In exactly the same way.
The movie is a very faithful adaption.
A shame about the ending though.
The novel was based off a short story Leonard made but I forgot the title of it.

Wonder if the short story ended the differently?

So it could be a remake with a new ending that satisfies. It could be creative.  Afro

I'm already writing a script for a semi-remake of "Chato's Land." I think "Valdez is Coming" could be another good idea.

BTW, for those who have seen the Lancaster movie, I often wondered if the finale as it is rendered in the italian version is also featured in the english one,with Valdez saying that he shot and killed his adversary while closing titles are rolling. I have found this finale to be quite awkward, so I wonder whether it was an idea of the italian distributor.

Watched it tonight again no nothing over the closing credits it ends with a fade to black.

Now we need Tarrantino to remake "Valdez is Coming" as his joke in Grindhouse ....."Machete" Valdez - They fucked with the wrong Mexican, lol.

Now I've just read the novel and the ending makes sense there: Valdez challenges Tanner to a draw to get the woman and Tanner, unsupported by his mexican henchmen, surrenders.

The short story to which the late ( Cool) Firecracker referred as possible basis for the novel (The Hanging of Bobby Valdez, a.k.a. Saint with a Six-Gun) has nothing to do with the novel except for the use of the names Valdez and Tanner.
