Pale Rider (1985)

Pale Rider (1985)

Yet another appearance for Clint Eastwood in our list, who produces and directs as well as starring as a taciturn preacher who, for a man of the cloth, seems strangely well versed in the use of firearms. The plot is pretty standard Western fare, with Clint protecting a group of downtrodden townspeople from a gang of thugs (in fact it’s almost a remake of Shane) but the religious overtones and air of mystery surrounding the lead character make Pale Rider the pick of the genre as far as the 1980s are concerned.
