The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)

Outlaw Josey Wales

This week, returning guest Derek Jarvis rides with us as we ride into the sunset to watch the 1976 Clint Eastwood Western The Outlaw Josey Wales! One of the more interesting revisionist Westerns of the 70s, Josey mixes up the white-hat do-goodery of the Old West with morally grey characters, vicious anti-heroes, and a frontier constantly beset with treacherous government officials and hordes of banditos who try to stop the titular outlaw (played by Eastwood) from just escaping the war and living his life. One of Eastwood’s earliest directorial efforts, we get a glimpse at the acclaimed director he would become. Check it out along with our drinking game and custom cocktail!
