El Dorado (1967) Poster


Christopher George: Nelse McLeod



  • Bart Jason : [Thornton is trying to distract McLeod outside of Jason's saloon]  Didn't expect to see you here, Mr. Thornton.

    Cole : Hello, McLeod.

    Bart Jason : I said...

    Nelse McLeod : My show, Jason. Hi, Thornton.

    Cole : There's a little question... unanswered between us.

    Nelse McLeod : Which one of us is best?

    Cole : That's right.

    Nelse McLeod : I don't think we're gonna find out the answer to that question.

    Cole : No?

    Nelse McLeod : No. Your gun hand's no good.

    Cole : You just give me time to get down off of this wagon and we'll find out.

    Nelse McLeod : Why should I give you any time?

    Cole : Call it professional courtesy.

    Bart Jason : Don't listen to him. Why should you give him time?

    Nelse McLeod : Curiosity, Jason.

    Cole : [Bull blows his bugle, and when McLeod around, Thornton dives of the wagon and mortally wounds McLeod with a hidden gun]  McLeod?

    Nelse McLeod : You didn't give me any chance at all, did you?

    Cole : No, I didn't. You're too good to give a chance to.

    Nelse McLeod : Yeah. I let a one-armed man take me.

  • Milt : You've got a lot of faith in me, don't ya, Nelse?

    Nelse McLeod : Faith can move mountains, Milt. But it can't beat a faster draw. There's only three men I know with his kind of speed. One's dead. The other's me. And the third is Cole Thornton.

    Cole : There's a fourth.

    Nelse McLeod : Which one are you?

    Cole : I'm Thornton.

    [Milt withdraws] 

    Nelse McLeod : Aren't you glad you didn't try, Milt? Pick up your guns, both of you, real easy.

    Cole : Like he said, real easy.

  • Nelse McLeod : Can you use a gun?

    Mississippi : Well, if I could I'd be using one. Good evening.

    Cole : Just minute, Mississippi.

    Mississippi : Would you mind telling me why you have such a great passion for my company?

  • Nelse McLeod : There's only three men I know of with his kind of speed. One of 'em's dead; one of em's me; and the other is Cole Thornton.

    Cole : There's a fourth.

    Nelse McLeod : Which one are you?

    Cole : I'm Thornton.

  • Nelse McLeod : [refering to Harrah]  You think he's that good?

    Cole : Good ? Why he's...

    Nelse McLeod : The fourth man you were talking about.

  • Bart Jason : You just going to sit there, Mcleod?

    Nelse McLeod : [Facing down Mississippi's sawed-off shotgun]  ... Well there really isn't very much I can do right now, is there, Jason?
