Movie Review: ****The Outlaw Josey Wales (Clint Eastwood, 1976)

The Outlaw Josey Wales
This is one of my favorite Clint Eastwood pictures.  It combines that old spaghetti western style with something more exciting and new.  Wales is heading West, escaping the Civil War as Confederate soldier, without surrendering.  Most of his unit was murdered when they surrendered.  He is labeled an outlaw and people are looking for him.  Heading west he meets an Indian chief, (Chief Dan George) and his squaw.  He later rescues a family who also joins his entourage.  They head for the family’s ranch in the West, and finally get there.  However they still have to fight off Native American’s as well as those who would capture Wales.  This movie is about moving on.
