broderick crawford

In one scene, the final scene I think of an Italian movie, Broderick Crawford was dying, I don’t recall exactly how but he’s dying, if not physically he’s about to expire spiritually, getting shot and beat up or maybe already shot, he’s trying to scramble on hands and knees up a scrambly eroded slope, he can’t make it because of (or in spite of?) his desperation, wearing his ill-fitting dirty suit with collar open, probably symbolic of his old life killing him, he can’t get shed of it, dirty shirt and a look of crushed desperation on his face, his mouth dry and his face dusted with dust flying off the slope in some abandoned countryside desolation, the pebbles and clods crumbling down, he’s sliding down too, the movie ends there I’m pretty sure he’s doomed, that’s it for him
