Overview

A mysterious and possibly otherworldly stranger comes to the rescue of a frontier town in this Western, which was strongly influenced by the George Stevens classic, Shane. The peace of a small mining community is shattered when Coy LaHood Richard Dysart, the ruthless proprietor of a powerful strip-mining company, arrives in town with his son Josh Christopher Penn and a posse of hired guns to drive out the townspeople and take control of the territory. Megan Sydney Penny, a young girl whose pet was killed in the melee, prays to God for someone to defend the village from the marauders; soon, the Preacher Clint Eastwood arrives on a pale horse, and joins forces with Hull Barrett Michael Moriarty, the unofficial leader of the miners and one of the few who attempts to defend himself, to take a stand against LaHood and his men. As the Preacher and Barrett try to organize the miners to fight the invaders, both Megan and her mother Sarah Carrie Snodgrass find they're drawn to the Preacher, who keeps to himself and seems to have more than his share of secrets. Pale Rider was also directed by leading man Clint Eastwood; it was his first Western as both director and star since the acclaimed The Outlaw Josey Wales.

    Dark and Violent Western Classic

    Clint Eastwood stared, directed, and produced this classic western in 1985. Eastwood plays a man called "Preacher" who comes as an avenging angel and helps an independent mining community against an evil mining boss, Coy LaHood. Eastwood captures your attention and imagination by using a cold, dark, and realistic atmosphere in this tale of Good and Evil. This is one of my favorite westerns but, like most Eastwood films, it's not for the weak of heart. There is a lot of ruthless killing and violence that may not be suitable for younger viewers. However, the film is very enjoyable and a must have for all Clint Eastwood fans!
