The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)

After avenging his family's brutal murder, Wales is pursued by a pack of soldiers. He prefers to travel alone, but ragtag outcasts are drawn to him - and Wales can't bring himself to leave them unprotected.


Great film?


I reckon.

Epic, eminently quotable Civil War western is probably my favorite of Eastwood's non-Leone excursions into the genre. Lots of first-rate showdowns and memorable characters, including a hilariously bad-ass granny, a "civilized" Indian, and a loyal squaw who speaks no English. Beware of flying tobacco juice!
