Fantastic downbeat western, I love it!
It's my favorite of Eastwood's movies. First saw it in the theater as a pre-game movie for my high school football team. Saw The Shootist the following week. I have always found it funny that Bill McKinney played Red Legs Terrell in Josie Wales and Cobb in Shootist and they were playing next to each other in the "Fourplex" in my home town. So McKinney was being killed almost simultaneously by the Duke and Clint in Homewood, Alabama in September 1976.
