Name that movie...

For a prize, take a guess in the comments. Name the movie and character. Double prize if you can tell me the situation for which the quote arose.

"Roy was hunting stagehands when the Comanches came. I grabbed the baby and a pistol and I hid in the root cellar out back. And the Indians tore up our sod house and I was real quiet but then the baby started crying and I tried to shush him and suckle him but he just wouldn’t stop. One Comanche, I remember, he acted real drunk and he wore my green apron. He must have heard something because he started hollering and coming closer. So I put my hand, gentle like, over my baby’s mouth, “Don’t cry, Daddy’ll be home soon.” The Indians found us but they just laughed, they were drunk. They didn’t want to hurt anybody…just rode away. At sundown Roy came home but I was too afraid to come out of the cellar. I was afraid what he’d do when he saw I smothered our son."

Good Luck!

ohhhh ... I don't know that one.

I know the one where it was the sister who smothered the baby in the same situation. But not this one. :(

LOL - waiting for someone to guess!

I have no idea. At first I thought Natalie Portman in Cold Mountain, but then she didn't kill her baby, and she was hiding from soldiers, not Comanches.

I would like a hint.

Wait, never mind. Dances with Wolves only has the one chick in the movie if I remember. And I'm postitive she doesn't make that speech. :P

Wasn't there a western with the mustache guy from Smokey and the Bandit?

Nope (or rather, correct), not Dances with Wolves.

Burt Reynolds. Not sure he did a western.

Was it a remake? It sounds real familiar. I keep seeing an indian wearing a dress.

By the way, I'm new here. Hello!

quigly down under, tom selleck, and i can't remember who played the girl. i don't remember the exact situation, but i remember they'd rescued this little aborigine baby, and at some point her and the baby had to hide while he went and took care of business and the baby started bawlin' and she was going to cover his mouth cause the bad guys were nearby, but then remembered this situation and was yelling "you cry, little whatever they named the baby, you cry loud!" and that was probably way more than was needed, but i know i'm right. *g* so what's my prize?
