Retired Old West gunslinger William Munny reluctantly takes on one last job, with the help of his old partner and a young man.
The concept for the film dated to 1976, when it was developed under the titles The Cut-Whore Killings and The William Munny Killings.
Dammit! Come a-running, lad!

Several of the characters, including Little Bill and William Munny, are seen sometimes wearing shirts that button all the way up the front. This is incorrect for 1880/81, when men's shirts were still of the pullover variety, with or without a collar, and a small buttoned placket at the top.
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).
