High Plains Drifter
As close to a horror film as Clint Eastwood ever made. The Man With No Name returns, sort of, in director Eastwood’s first western. Dedicated to Don Siegel and Sergio Leone. A bit of a dry run for the later Pale Rider. Not in the forefront of progressive portraits of women onscreen.
