Following the slaughter, Max swears revenge under the name Nevada Smith. Barely in his twenties and unable to read, write or shoot, he meets Jonas Cord (Brian Keith), a decent gun merchant. Cord cannot dissuade Nevada from the futility of his pursuit and teaches him to play Poker and to shoot, “you learn to do that with either hand, when you're drunk or asleep, or with the sun in your eyes and you might stand a chance.”
Undaunted, Nevada hunts his quarry, one by one, through gambling halls, brothels and a Southern chain gang until the terrified Fitch (Karl Malden) realizes, “he doesn't just chase you. He executes you.”
