It stars Tim Blake NelsonLiam NeesonJames FrancoBrendan GleesonZoe KazanTyne DalyHarry Melling, and Tom Waits, and features six vignettes that take place in the American frontier.

The film was based on Western-themed short stories written by the Coens over a period of 20 to 25 years (accounts vary) that differ in mood and subject.

“All Gold Canyon” was based on a Jack London story.

“The Gal Who Got Rattled” was inspired by a story by Stewart Edward White and based in part on contemporaneous accounts, including those of heated arguments over pets.

the Coens intended the stories to be seen together, structured them that way in the script they submitted to Annapurna, and shot the script as written. (wiki)
