The Quick and the Dead

July 13, 1995

The Quick and the Dead


The Lady (Sharon Stone) enters the Old West town of Redemption circa 1881. In an attempt to seek vengeance for her father’s death, The Lady enters a gunfighting contest held by Redemption’s ruthless leader, John Herod (Gene Hackman). The Lady is introduced to Cort (Russell Crowe), a former Herod henchman turned preacher, whom Herod forced to enter the contest.

The Lady forges a friendship with Fee “The Kid” Herod (Leonardo DiCaprio), an arrogant and young gunslinger who hopes to impress Herod, his ignorant father. As Cort is persecuted for abandoning his violent past in favor of a peaceful religious life, the first and second rounds of the competition ensue. Both Lady and Cort find that Herod’s main goal of the contest is to eliminate anyone who might pose a threat to him as leader of the town.

Haunted by her childhood traumas, Lady reflects that as a young girl, Herod manipulated her into killing her father, the town’s former Marshal. With Lady, Cort, Herod and The Kid left as the four remaining contestants, Kid challenges Herod to a duel to win his respect. Although they both injure each other with bullet wounds, Kid’s wounds prove fatal. John declares that Fee was not his son and explains to the crowd that his wife (Fee’s mother) had an affair with a farmer. When Lady and Cort are forced to face each other, they devise a successful plan to kill Herod and free Redemption from his oppression.
