There is no language on the track, but it is typically American.
It is remixed - in 7 minutes we get all elements of a Western, the
cock crowing, the gun shots, the ominous music, the square dancing,
the indians attacking, the cowboys shooting, the sun rising, the
peaceful camp, etc. The screen is black except for the opening title
which is scratched in black leader, and the "Fin" at the end.
