The Outlaw Josey Wales

Original Theatrical Date: June 30, 1976

Four-time Academy Award® winner Clint Eastwood stars in and directs this fast-paced Western about the fight for vengeance by a Missouri farmer whose family is murdered by a group of Unionists in the last days of the United States' Civil War.

As The Outlaw Josey Wales, Eastwood is ideally cast as a hard-hitting, fast-drawing loner, recalling his "Man with No Name" from his European Westerns. But unlike that other mythic outlaw, Josey Wales has a name--and a heart.

Based on the novel Gone to Texas by Forrest Carter.

Genre: Western
