Retired Old West gunslinger William Munny (Clint Eastwood) reluctantly takes on one last job, with the help of his old partner Ned Logan (Morgan Freeman) and a young man, The "Schofield Kid" (Jaimz Woolvett).
By Clint Eastwood's own recollection, he was given the script in the "early 80s" although he did not immediately pursue it, because according to him "I thought I should do some other things first." He later said that he waited purposely until he had the right age and he was in the right place of his career. Biographer Patrick McGilligan specifies that it was presented to him in the spring of 1984 by Megan Rose, a story analyst at Warner Brothers, who Eastwood happened to be sleeping with at the time.
Dammit! Come a-running, lad!

When the Kid and Munny are discussing the killings after the last one, the Kid is drinking from a bottle that's fluid level keeps changing around however slightly.
At the end of the credits, there is caption reading, "Dedicated to Sergio and Don". This is a reference to late directors Sergio Leone (who directed Clint Eastwood in the Dollars trilogy) and Don Siegel (who directed Eastwood in Dirty Harry and Escape from Alcatraz).
