9: Joe Kidd

#9: Joe Kidd

In Clint Eastwood’s extensive filmography, Joe Kidd may not be the most celebrated or groundbreaking work, but it is noteworthy for where it fell in the

trajectory of his career. The 1972 film served as a bridge between Eastwood’s early Western successes and his later, more diverse roles as both an actor and director.

Peppered with action-filled sequences befitting of director John Sturgess, Joe Kidd is perhaps best known for … you guessed it: the scene where Clint Eastwood fires from a train as it crashes through the middle of a saloon!
