OPEN COUNTRY - DAY

Endless green hills bisected by a ribbon of highway. A road
gang clearing brush by the side of the road... Twenty-five
men in prison fatigues sweating through their mid-afternoon
labor.

THREE GUARDS

Flank the working prisoners... Mountie hats, shotguns,
sidearms, sunglasses; they look like they mean it.

HIGHWAY

A battered pickup appears...approaches. Suddenly, it coughs,
shudders, stalls. A big Blackfoot Indian named BILLY BEAR
gets out and starts cursing and kicking the vehicle.Then he
begins walking toward the road gang...

ROADSIDE

BRADY is the Guard near the center of the work gang; he
smiles at the oncoming man, pokes a prisoner beside him.

BRADY
Wonder what reservation they let
him off of...

The prisoner is GANZ who looks up, grins at Brady...

GANZ
Yeah, there goes the neighborhood.

Brady laughs as Billy Bear closes in on him.

BILLY
Say, buddy, my engine's
overheating and I got 30 miles
before the next station... Could
I get some water out of your
cooler?

Ganz leans on his hoe, speaks as Billy passes...

GANZ
Maybe you shoulda stole a better
truck, Tonto.

BILLY
You got a real big mouth, convict.

BRADY
It's okay, chief. He's just
joking...

BILLY
How about the water...

GANZ
Firewater, Tonto? Is that what
you...

Billy whirls, swings at Ganz. Both men roll to the ground.

BRADY
Hey! Jesus Christ!

THE OTHER GUARDS

Seeing the commotion, they run toward it.

GANZ AND BILLY

As they struggle, Billy slips a pistol into Ganz' hand.

BRADY
That's a state prisoner,
asshole...! Back off...

ROADSIDE

Brady pulls Billy away from Ganz just 'as one of the other
officers arrives... Ganz suddenly whips out a pistol, shoots
Brady at point-blank range. Before the other Guards can even
react, Billy comes out with his own pistol, caps the Second
Guard.

THIRD GUARD

Still forty yards away... In mid-draw, be howls as a bullet
from Ganz breaks the nearby ground. He fires, then turns and
runs for the prison bus.

GANZ

Smiling, fires twice. but the range is too great for pistol
work...

THE OTHER PRISONERS

Watching....Then they all scatter in different directions...

GANZ

Hefts his weapon...

GANZ
Come on...

He and the big Indian run to the pickup, climb in and roar
away.

INT. BUS

The THIRD GUARD making a call on the police radio...

OFFICER
APO 657, Unit 25 to APO 478t APO
657t Unit 25 to APO 478.

RADIO RESPONSE
Go ahead, Unit 25.

OFFICER
Escape in progress. Two officers
shot off rail crossing 31.
Prisoners escaping. Two men, one
six-four, 200 pounds, dark, an
Indian, the other, Albert Ganz,
five-ten...

FURTHER DOWN THE HIGHWAY

Several miles from the escape... A big semi parked by the
side of the road; back doors to the closed trailer open. A
station wagon parked across the road. The pickup appears,
approaches the semi, slows down and drives up the ramp into
the van. Ganz and Billy jump out, shove the ramp up
inside the truck and close the big doors.
