Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Clint Eastwood is a man of few words but many bullets in this, the first western he made back in America after Sergio Leone had virtually invented him as a film star in the spaghetti westerns they made together. Eastwood does the strong, silent stuff with characteristic efficiency, in a tale of revenge and justice for all. The laconic one plays a rancher who's mistakenly hanged by a lynch mob but survives to become a deputy sheriff and wreak terrible vengeance on the perpetrators. It's perhaps more memorable as a staging post in Eastwood's career than as a landmark in the history of the Hollywood western.
