3 Lunch Breaks …

Opening Line for Unforgiven:

“”She was a comely young woman and not without prospects. Therefore it was heartbreaking to her mother that she would enter into marriage with William Munny, a known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition. When she died, it was not at his hands as her mother might have suspected, but of smallpox. That was 1878. “”

Closing Line for Unforgiven:

“”Some years later, Mrs. Ansonia Feathers made the arduous journey to Hodgeman County to visit the last resting place of her only daughter. William Munny had long since disappeared with the children… some said to San Francisco where it was rumored he prospered in dry goods. And there was nothing on the marker to explain to Mrs. Feathers why her only daughter had married a known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition. “”

That’s the emotion I feel in this picture. A man, hardened by life, brutal by nature, trying to fight against everything he is, yet still needing to do what it takes to raise and provide for those who came from the only person to love him.
