High Plains Drifter 8/10

Severely underrated film in my opinion.

Thanks Whalestoe! Clint Eastwood was amazing in this film, to cool for words. He had minimal diologue but when he opened his mouth, he had some memorable lines. I preticularly loved the scene where he's watching over the townies for the first time practicing their gunfire. His reaction and words are hilarious!

Speaking of Eastwood, my aunt and uncle went to his restaurant in California. He was supposed to show  up, but he never did.

The bastard.

Naaah.  People say that Hang 'em High is influenced by TGS (there are some very similar scenes), and that the mauser used by Silenzio in The Great Silence makes a reappearance in Eastwood's western Joe Kidd.

I love this film. It also gets better with repeated viewings from my perspective.

"What happened to our horses? We had three good animals"

"What do you think you've been eating these past 6 months?"

Great western quote, and apparently John Wayne hated this film.

Yes he did. He wrote Clint Eastwood a letter after he seen it didn't capture the real meaning of the west. Something along those lines.

Wonder if he wrote Sergio Leone a letter?

I've never read anything about that, but we do know that Wayne didn't think to highly about Spaghetti Westerns. I'm a pretty big John Wayne fan myself but this is one of the things I didn't like about him. He was a bit to stubborn and uptight.

It would have been pretty amazing what Wayne could have been capable of under Sergio's direction.

Yeah I've always wondered what would be like if Sergio made a film with John Wayne and James Stewart since they have great on screen chemestry.
