Epilogue – based on “The Stranger,” a script by Donald S. Sanford
(Sunrise in the Sherman ranch yard. LORENA VIKTOR’s children are getting into a buckboard. DAISY COOPER, SLIM SHERMAN, JESS HARPER, EMIL VIKTOR and LORENA VIKTOR are by the buckboard.)
LORENA VIKTOR: Thank you for being so good to us.
DAISY COOPER:You’re more than welcome We’re sorry you’re leaving, but I can imagine that you are eager to be on your own again.
EMIL VIKTOR: I can’t tell you how good it is to be free, to go where you want to go.
JESS HARPER: Now that the charges against you are dismissed, I can’t figure why you want to go to Canada, Emil.
EMIL VIKTOR: Big country. Not unlike my homeland. And, ah, we will miss our good friends here, but it would be so good to start over again.
JESS HARPER: Well, I can’t blame you for that and I wish you a lot of luck.
EMIL VIKTOR: I, ah, I would not soon forget what you and Slim have done for us.
SLIM SHERMAN: You did a couple of things for us we won’t forget. And the folks that live in that town in Colorado they used to call Madox…
LORENA VIKTOR: Used to.. have they changed the name?
JESS HARPER: Well not officially, but since the government uncovered so much about the Madox family and Emil’s fake trial, they are thinking about calling the town Viktorville.
EMIL VIKTOR: Oh! (Laughs)
JESS HARPER: So long.
(EMIL VIKTOR drives off midst waving by ALL.)
