The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)

Director: Clint Eastwood

Cast: Clint Eastwood as Josey Wales, Chief Dan George as Lone Watie, Sondra Locke as Laura Lee, Bill McKinney as Terrill, John Vernon as Fletcher, Paula Trueman as Grandma Sarah, Sam Bottoms as Jamie, Geraldine Keams as Little Moonlight, Woodrow Parfrey as Carpetbagger, Joyce Jameson as Rose, Sheb Wooley as Travis Cobb, Royal Dano as Ten Spot, Matt Clark as Kelly (as Matt Clarke), John Verros as Chato, Will Sampson as Ten Bears

Strikes all the right notes of humor, adventure, gun fights and most of
all, authenticity. Eastwood is impressive in front of and behind the
camera. The script stays reasonably close to the book (Gone to Texas).

Chief Dan George is truly a treasure and was perfectly cast. The great
Will Samson is imposing and utterly believable as Ten Bears. Bill
McKinney (from the "Eastwood acting collective") is great as Terrill.
Although, Sandra Locke is typically forgettable in an otherwise well
cast film.

This along with Unforgiven will forever be branded classic "Cowboy"
movies in my mind. I still recall Orson Welles on the Tonight Show
telling Johnny he had just seen "the greatest Western ever made" after
viewing The Outlaw Josey Wales. Brilliant film.
