Saturday At The Movies: Joe Kidd

Another of the Clint Eastwood Westerns, but this one was a Hollywood version. After proving himself a box office commodity in movies produced in Italy, Hollywood decided that they wanted Clint all for themselves, and scripts started filtering in his direction. This was among the first, and pretty soon, he even managed to break out of the Western genre. This one also stars a young Robert Duvall.

    Ah, this is the one I was thinking of, where one of the rancher’s posse is carrying a Broomhandle Mauser with the wooden holster/detachable stock.

    I did not care for Joe Kidd as much as other westerns Clint did. When Clint really broke out was when he was doing his own producing. Although his “monkey movie” phase is probably best left unremembered (although he got to work with his friends, they made money, and they seemed like they were having a good time).

    I like the sniper angle in the movie.
