Clint Eastwood's tale of unrelenting darkness and violence is often described as the last best Western ever made. The film is seen by many as a companion piece to Eastwood's 1971 film THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES, but there are also thematic references to his other films, including his career-making spaghetti Westerns for Italian director Sergio Leone. The film earned Eastwood his first Academy Award for directing - signaling the moment when the world began to recognize Eastwood as not only one of the great movie stars of his generation - but also one of the master craftsmen of the art form.
