Retired Old West gunslinger William Munny reluctantly takes on one last job, with the help of his old partner and a young man.
The character Corky Corcoran is the name of a cameraman that was filming a promotional spot for another Clint Eastwood movie. During a break in the interview, Clint Eastwood asked what the cameraman's name was, and when told it was Corky Corcoran, Clint did not believe him. His given name is John, but he went by Corky his whole life. Clint said that was a hell of a name.
Dammit! Come a-running, lad!

English Bob takes his beating from Little Bill, on "Independence day" (July 4). A few days later Little Bill dishes out another beating to Will Munny and then days after that, Munny is recovering in a shack/barn where there is snow outside. Since the fictional town of "Big Whiskey" is most likely located in the East high plains section of Wyoming near Laramie, as opposed to the mountain ranges and Indian reservations in the Western part of Wyoming in the 1880s, the average temperature in July is between 85-95 degrees. Even in the highest mountain plains accumulated snowfall would be nearly unheard of in early to mid July. Also there is much rain in the film, and July is the driest month in Wyoming.
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).
