Director: Clint Eastwood
Actors: Clint Eastwood, Sondra Locke, Chief Dan George, Bill McKinney, John Vernon, Paula Trueman, Sam Bottoms, Geraldine Keams, Woodrow Parfrey, Joyce Jameson, Sheb Wooley, Royal Dano, Matt Clark, Will Sampson, William O’Connell and John Quade
Year: 1976
Genre: Western
Conclusion: 4/5
Based on a book called “The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales” by Forrest Carter. There has only been one western hero since John Wayne and that is Clint Eastwood. As well as him being the main lead in this he is also the director in this full feature length western. I have to say that there isn’t much dialogue in this film. This is on Barry Norman’s list of 100 Greatest Films of all time that he produced at the start of 2012 in The Radio Times.
