Joe Kidd

We decided to add a second feature to our movie night last night. Joe Kidd is a 1972 Clint Eastwood Western directed by John Sturges. Robert Duvall, John Saxon, Gregory Walcott and Dick Van Patton are also here. Elmore Leonard wrote it. The music is by Lalo Schifrin.

Here's the first couple of minutes of it, since I can't find an embeddable trailer:

Roger Ebert gives it 2 stars. Variety says, "John Sturges' direction is sufficiently compelling to keep guns popping and bodies falling." The New York Times says it's "modestly decent ... almost until the climax".
