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 opens 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 (including Sondra Locke and Chief Dan George) are drawn to him - and Wales can't bring himself to leave them unprotected. Time called it one of 1976's best movies. Over time, The Outlaw Josey Wales has secured a place as one of the top Westerns ever.
