Pale Rider


A mysterious preacher (Clint Eastwood) arrives in time to help a community of prospectors in California fight an aggressive mining baron (Richard Dysart). Eastwoodā€™s only Western in the 1980s was a hit, taking skillful advantage of genre conventions and borrowing heavily from films like Shane (1953) and High Plains Drifter (1973). Eastwood is solid as the preacher who might actually be a ghost; the pacing is uneven, but wintry locations help and thereā€™s tension near the end as our hero faces an old enemy. Former Bond villain Richard Kiel adds color and heart in a supporting role.

1985-U.S. 113 min. Color. Widescreen. Produced and directed byĀ Clint Eastwood. Cast: Clint Eastwood (The Preacher), Michael Moriarty (Hull Barret), Carrie Snodgress (Sarah Wheeler), Chris Penn, Richard Dysart, Sydney Pennā€¦ Richard Kiel.
