The Outlaw Josey Wales

Running on the treadmill on Saturday and Sunday, I watched The Outlaw Josey Wales. Released in 1976 and based on the book Gone to Texas, it stars Clint Eastwood, Chief Dan George and Sondra Locke.

In part, the movie tells the story of Missourians who fell prey during the Civil War to the Kansas-based Unionists called "Red-Leggers" (after their red-striped stockings and gaiters).

The movie is also interesting because it marks the beginning of the relationship between Clint Eastwood and Sandra Locke. They ended up living together for the next 14 years and making six films together.
