In Jim McGlynn's original Nicoll Fellowship-winning screenplay, Pat died in Bokky's arms while convincing him, in his broken gypsy dialect, not to leave the traveller family. The ending was re-written on-location at the behest of Bill Paxton and Jack Green. See more »

...you'll do far better enjoying Guy Ritchie's "Snatch" in which Brad
Pitt's Mickey brings that entire Celtic sub-culture to near
preternatural perfection. It's also a much better movie. I feel that
Traveler wastes so much of its potential impact with lame ripoff
schemes and a confusing sense of who and what the Travelers actually
are. Also, setting it in America is like setting a movie about Eskimo
life (not that I'm comparing Travelers to Alaskan natives by any means)
in New Orleans.
Paxton and Marky Mark are talented performers but this film, while
certainly watchable, doesn't really seem to get to the point.
