Pale Rider is far better than "Joe Kidd" (blech) thats for sure.

Oh, I forgot about Joe Kidd. I take back my previous comment, Joe Kidd was the worst Eastwood western made in America.

"And it completely pales to Clint's three best american westerns: Outlaw Josey Wales, High Plains Drifter, and Unforgiven."

That's probably why it's called Pale Rider Grin

I've never seen Joe Kidd, so I wouldn't know, but I think that Hang 'em High  and Pale Rider were his two worst that I've seen.

"Hang em High" would work very well if there would be a proper  (complete!) ending and if that romance segment was cut from the picture.

The romance thing really did need to be cut.

The romance side-plot is the perfect example of when Hollywood has to halt the pace of a western or any action film so they can throw in some sappy romance story that has NOTHING to do with the plot.

It's frustrating.   Angry

I've only seen the last half hour, but it didn't impress me.  I did like Clint's guns with the interchangable magazines though.  Wink

"Hang 'Em High" sucks, it has some good scenes early on but goes south pretty quickly.  And I've already said I'm not a fan of "High Plains Drifter". . .

the intro where eastwood beats down the baddies with wooden planks is probably the high light...

I don't think much of Pale Rider, it has no real strong villan, and the prospectors were more like some hippy commune, I liked seeing John Russel (TV's Lawman, & Yellow Sky) though.

We should revive this thread where I sort of rant about Clints AW's

Oh, for the record, I've only seen parts of "Joe Kidd" and I don't remember it well at all.

And nice self-promotion CJ.  Wink

Well Joe Kidd is somewhat similar to the plot of TGS if you think about it.  Grin

here's a radical thought, apart from Unforgiven and maybe High Plaines Drifter were all Eastwoods other Westerns just quick offerings to his fans while his real aim was the Dirty Harrys and his more arty flicks
A kind of short changed sop to raise the cash for the nextoff the field flick.
By the way I thought the Beguiled was a pretty neat Western in a funny sort of way and I hate all movies with Sondra Locke in, talk about getting some fame from the back of your boyfriend

Thats kind of the way it seems don't it. Anybody else that was that hot a box office draw should have been in demand by some of the great directors through out the 70's & 80's.

Maybe Clint just wanted total control with Malpaso.

Pale Rider is a GREAT movie,up there with Clints classic High Plains Drifter and Outlaw Josey Wales.
  Eastwood produced the most Italionate American westerns and in my opinion is the number one American director of westerns.
   C'mon Clint,lets have some more! Wink
