Pale Rider (1985)
|Tagline:||... and hell followed with him.|
|Genres:||Action | Western|
|Released:||28 June 1985 (USA)|
- Classic Clint Eastwood, who shows no signs on intimidation, even when in a stand-off against U.S. Marshall Stockburn and his 6 mean bas arse deputies!
- You just don't want to mess with the Pale Rider! He's the perfect hero, always doing and saying the "right" thing, even when the 14 year old daughter asks him to make love (and then the mother later wants to make out with him too)!
- Richard Kiel is back (better known as "Jaws" from the James Bond films!), and he has two great scenes. One were Clint Eastwood hits him in the balls with a sledgehammer and another where he turns on his "bad" friends to save the girl.
In Pale Rider, Clint Eastwood returned to the saddle after nine years and Western movies were riding high again. After corporate mining boss Coy LaHood (Richard Dysart) begins a campaign of terror to drive independent pan miners out of the area, a nameless stranger called Preacher (Eastwood) rides into the underdog's camp. He becomes their avenger. The tycoon then hires a badge-wearing killer and his duster-shrouded deputies, men loyal to whoever pays the most. LaHood pays gold. But in a climactic shootout to remember, Preacher pays in lead.
Well, if you're waitin' for a woman to make up her mind, you may have a a long wait.
Nothing like a good piece of hickory.
Sacramento ain't worth moose piss.
