Winning Academy Awards for Best Picture, Director (Clint Eastwood), Supporting Actor (Gene Hackman) and Film Editing, and co-starring Oscar-nominees Morgan Freeman ("Driving Miss Daisy", "Glory") and Richard Harris ("The Field"), boxoffice sensation Clint Eastwood produces, directs and stars in this Western adventure. Eastwood's biggest hit ever, this boxoffice winner ($101,000,000!) tells the story of a former gunfighter and outlaw who, now struggling as a poor farmer, is forced out of retirement only to finally face his cold-blooded past. Tremendous critical acclaim! The New York Times says Eastwood is in "his richest, most satisfying performance since... "Heartbreak Ridge." There's no one like him." Roger Ebert gives a "thumbs up" to the movie he calls "a great-looking western filled with moments of quiet threat and risky face-downs between desperate men..." and Time Magazine calls it simply, "Classic. Majestic. Passionate."
