Judge to prisoners part 1 of 2: Turn around. Face the people in this room. … For the crime you men have committed, and found guilty of, you shall all serve three years in prison. It is a pity the jurisdiction of this court does not encompass the guilty ones who now sit in front of the prisoners. Those of you who mentholate and perborate urged them on to do your bidding. Those of you who are so willing to purge your humility of the two so called immoral people and in so doing, let loose death and lawlessness. This court wants the prisoners to look at the faces of the people before them.

Judge to prisoners part 2 of 2: Remember them well. They are the faces of those who are narrow minded, of people who feel they have the right to criticize others even though they themselves are as guilty as you who took part in this murder. You are serving their terms for they are as guilty as you. Everyone in this room can feel proud today. The town Rock River is on the map, bleak and black, speaking very poorly of a civilized frontier of the West. This court is dismissed.

1957 black and white western -- A besieged sheriff tried to uphold the law and protect his friend who was miscegenating with a young Indian woman from the self-righteous citizens in a small Frontier town. Though without caption, the dialogues were clearly delivered and understood.
