I know many people that love Clint Eastwood posters prints. If you like them too, take a look at this one. It was inspired in the Outlaw Josey Wales movie.
The first movie I saw with Clint Eastwood was Magnum Force. I was a young Brazilian teenager living in LA with my mother and was overwhelmed by the actor’s power on screen.
From then on, I became a fan and did not miss any opportunity to watch his movies.
It was only about 10 years later that, already back to Brazil, I saw his spaghetti westerns directed by Sergio Leone.
Josey Wales was filmed about 10 to 15 years after Eastwood’s experience with Leone.
The movie, set in an American Civil War background, was made in 1976 with a keen interpretation about human behavior during conflict times and spice extracted from the Italian style.
The director Clint Eastwood, who also plays Wales, was starting to stand out from the crowd as a great filmmaker.
The movie is also starred by Chief Dan George, Sondra Locke, Sam Bottoms, and Will Sampson.
The story is about a farmer from Missouri that faces a tragedy when his family is murdered by Union militants during that war.
He then joins a Confederate guerrilla band and fights against the North seeking revenge.
After the Civil War, wishing for a useful life, Josey Wales goes west, determined to honor his family memory.
A group of settlers who need the protection asks him, a tough and experienced man of resources, for help.
But his past comes in the way and he has to face bounty hunters and Union soldiers hunting down the wanted man.
Depicting a revisionist interpretation of the Civil War, in 1996, the film was considered of great historic value and was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress.
While researching for this post, I found out that a sequel named The Return of Josey Wales was filmed and portrayed by Michael Parks in 1986.
