PALE RIDER (1985) NINE, 11.30PM, M, WESTERN

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

An­other day, an­other Clint East­wood western. This time, Dirty Harry keeps to the usual cow­boy archetypes (i.e. mys­te­ri­ous stranger saves a town be­sieged by hood­lums) but gives it a re­li­gious bent: the saviour is a preacher, the bad guys are mostly rea­soned out of their das­tardly deeds and the towns­folk are sim­ple but good peo­ple search­ing for hope in a harsh land­scape. An­other wor­thy en­try into the “Man with No Name” se­ries that shows East­wood’s met­tle both in the sad­dle and be­hind the cam­era. ★★★★
