List of Duel in the Sun quotes.

The Sinkiller: Under that heathen blanket, there's a full-blossomed woman built by the devil to drive men crazy.

The Sinkiller: I don't really know much about Sam Pierce, oh Lord, but from what I hear, he'd be needing no introduction to you. Seeing how Sam was snatched from his loved ones' arms before they even had time to get a good grip on hm, I'm counting on you to give him a better break up yonder.

Lewt McCanles: You double-crossin' bobcat.
