  • It's Clint Eastwood doing what he does best!

As the Outlaw Josey Wales, Clint Eastwood is ideal as a wary, fast drawing loner, akin to the "Man with No Name" from his European Westerns. But unlike that other mythic outlaw, Josey Wales has a name and a heart.

That heart open up as the action unfolds. After avenging his family's brutal murder, Wales is pursued by a pack of killers. He prefers to travel alone, but ragtag outcasts are drawn to him - and Wales can't bring himself to leave them unprotected. One of the top Westerns ever.

Get ready, little lady. Hell is coming to breakfast.
Josey Wales
Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. 'Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is.

When I get to likin' someone, they ain't around long.I notice when you get to DISlikin' someone they ain't around for long neither.
Ten Bears
Josey Wales
These things you say we will have, we already have.That's true. I ain't promising you nothing extra. I'm just giving you life and you're giving me life. And I'm saying that men can live together without butchering one another.It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life.
