The Outlaw Josey Wales - “Mad-Dog Mean”
© 1976 - Warner Bros. All rights reserved
Starring in the 1976 release of The Outlaw Josey Wales, Clint Eastwood plays Josey Wales…a tough, fearless confederate guerilla fighter from Missouri whose family was murdered by renegade union army soldiers — led by a corrupt, blood thirsty officer known as Captain “Red Legs” Terrill. After the war, with Terrill in hot pursuit, Josey heads to Mexico to join up with other displaced guerilla fighters. On the way, he ends up reluctantly shepherding a rag tag group of settlers and outcasts through the wilds to a homestead in Texas. Ultimately, he finds himself giving the group a 1860s version of the pre-game pep talk as they prepare to defend themselves against a hostile attack in which they are badly outnumbered and completely out matched.
