Description:Joe (Clint Eastwood) rides into town and sees a thug raping a wife and threatening the woman's husband and son. Joe discovers that there are two rival gangs in town, one that runs liquor and one that runs guns to the Indians. He decides to stick around and play the two against each other, pretending to be part of one group and then the other. His motive is money, but when the woman asks why he's helping, he says, "I knew someone like you once, and there was no one there to help." The finale shootout is the famous scene where he wears a piece of iron under his cloak as armor.
My Rating:8
