Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman play retired, down-on-their-luck outlaws who pick up their guns one last time to collect a bounty offered by the vengeful prostitutes of the remote Wyoming town of Big Whiskey.
Richard Harris is an ill-fated interloper, a colorful killer-for-hire called English Bob. And "Best Supporting Actor" Oscar winner Gene Hackman is the sly and brutal local sheriff whose brand of law enforcement ranges from unconventional to ruthless.
Eastwood picked up the "Best Director" Oscar and Unforgiven was also rewarded with the "Best Picture" Academy Award.
