  • Phoenix cop Ben Shockley’s dream of breaking “the big case” has faded over time. His assignment to escort from Las Vegas “a nothing witness for a nothing trial” seems like just another meaningless exercise. Until the fireworks start. 

    Clint Eastwood runs The Gauntlet into an explosive movie embodying its title with a vengeance. The witness is a hardened hooker (Sondra Locke) whom everyone — including Vegas oddsmakers — wants dead. Trapped between both sides of the law, the two must survive an obstacle course of raging gunfire, blazing cars, swooping helicopters, murderous ambushes, crazed bikers and crooked police. Building to a ferocious finale that shoots an armoured bus to smithereens with more than 8,000 bullets, The Gauntlet is a trip you can’t miss.

  • Philo Beddoe is your regular, easygoing, truck-driving guy. He’s also the best bar-room brawler west of the Rockies. And he lives with a 165-pound orang-utan named Clyde. Like other guys, Philo finally falls in love – with a flighty singer who leads him on a screwball chase across the American Southwest.

    Nothing’s in the way except a motorcycle gang, two sneaky off-duty cops and legendary brawler Tank Murdock. Every Which Way but Loose was a change of pace for Clint Eastwood – and it proved to be one of his most popular films. With a soaring country score and a solid supporting cast including Sondra Locke, Geoffrey Lewis, Beverly D’Angelo and the great Ruth Gordon, it’s in every which way possible a grand time for all.

  • As The Outlaw Josey Wales, Clint Eastwood is ideally cast as a hard-hitting, fast-drawing loner, recalling his “Man with No Name” from his European Westerns. But unlike that other mythical outlaw, Josey Wales has a name – and a heart.  

    After avenging his family’s brutal murder, Wales is on the run, pursued by a pack of killers. He travels alone, but a ragtag group of outcasts (including Sondra Locke and Chief Dan George) is drawn to him – and Wales can’t leave his motley surrogate family unprotected. Time called it one of 1976’s best movies. Over time, The Outlaw Josey Wales has secured a place as one of top westerns ever.
