I watched 'The Outlaw Josey Wales' on TCM television last night , and I just want to say that I enjoyed it immensely. It must rank as one of the best cowboy films ever. I w 8)ill be watching it again in the near future.

Yeah, the Outlaw Josie Wales is great.  The scene where they've crossed the river but have the run-in with Ladge & Co. is great.   More superb casting: the close-up shot of his face, the drawl, everything.  

'...real slow, so I can count the haaaaiiirs on that hand....'

'...shut up Ladge...'

And of course: '....she thinks I'm some sort of Cherokee chief....!'

Yeah Josey Wales is a great western.

I highly recommend the Josey Wales SE DVD.
Apart from the superb transfer and the (quite good) 5.1 audio, it also contains a 35 min all-new documentary.
The documentary is highly informative and includes interviews with all of the cast. Also, Clint talks about how much this film means to him.

I have always felt that this movie is my "gold watch". And by that I mean that I like to keep this DVD away, and when my friends ask if I have a god movie and can pull out Josey Wales and show them a really good film...

Anyone else feel that this is Clint's "forgotten" film?!?

Forgotten!!!  :o Not at all. That title would go to Hang em high.
Every time i try to convert some of my
non-clint-believing friends to proper clint worship, ;) i show them (ot talk about) OJW, and every time so far they all say something like ; OOOHH, Iīve seen this movie before, itīs so cool. When i mention Hang em high, i usually get blank stares.

Yeah, that's my experience as well.
Love to impress my friends, who usually watches such films as the Matrix films which, quite frankly, does not impress me at all.

I have my DVD copies of both of those movies. OJW is an excellent movie.

They have something in that territory called a Missouri boat ride. :)

This is just one of Clint's great western movies! He is a bad man from the bad lands...a farmer minding his own buisness >:(  Josey is a man of heart and the classic icon of the Old West..."I reckon so"! You just don't get any greater classic phrases, facial expressions, or even the way you spit your baccor(tobacco). I love this film along with the many other westerns that Clint made!!!

heh, josey wales could wipe the floor with neo anytime. ;D

I think that one of the reasons OJW is such a good western, is because we got the usual revenge storyline which later turns into a "help each other" storyline.
Josey have lost his family, and future, and heīll be damned if heīll let that happen to anyone else.

Yes, right on!

But don't forget to add flawless direction, superb cinematography, sublime acting and a oscar nominated score.

We still had Drive-Ins when this movie came out and that was great!  BUT, I still had to see it indoors to get the full effect of this sound track.  At least that was the story I told my girlfriend when we saw it the second time   ;D

It's a good book, I read it years ago. It's called The Outlaw Josey Wales a.k.a. Gone To Texas. It's a pretty good read if you can find a copy.

We discussed the book briefly in a thread last August.

The book is in print and can be ordered from Amazon.com for $11.48 plus shipping ... and you'll benefit this site, which has an affiliation with Amazon. (I hope I copied that link correctly so the affiliation will work.)

This is a University of New Mexico Press edition from November 1989, and it contains the original novel, which was originally published in 1973 under the title The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales, and subsequently under the titles Gone to Texas and The Outlaw Josey Wales, and the 1976 sequel, The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales. It also has an Afterword by Lawrence Clayton.

The Outlaw Josey Wales is, I believe, the strongest film made by Clint.  It not only has a story to tell of one man's struggle against 'being wronged' but it brings into play a number of topics that are now viewed in a politically correct light today.  Josey, in my opinion, is true to himself and true to what is right and what is wrong in the world of his time.  These points are also applicable to this day and age.  I have a copy of this film and I think I may have watched it, over the years,  maybe 100 times (guess).  And every time I watch it I see and feel something different.  Brilliant.

I have to admit myself, The movie had an epic quality that seemed to be missing in some of the other Malpaso films. It brought back that Leone feelign we all feel so warm about.
