It's good to be back on the board, been mega busy lately. Shame I had to re-register :'( but like the new look forum.

Just saw The Outlaw Josey Wales for first ime last night.

Am I right in saying the man who double crosses Josey in the begining is also the Mayor in Dirty Harry. He looks very familiar.

Will do! I just thought someone may know. I don't get so much time to watch movies these days sadly so it may be a while before I can re-watch Dirty Harry.

RGP, next time ... try the Filmography right here on this site. No waiting.  :D

BTW, Fletcher didn't double-cross Josey. He was double-crossed himself by Senator Lane, who promised his men amnesty, then had them all shot.

Thanks KC, yeah I know he wasn't double crossed, but in Josey's eyes it would have appeared that way. It was a fantastic ending when they both meet eachother. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for something to happen.

It's also nice how in this western I was left with the impression Josey settles down in the town rather than going off on his own as he does in many other westerns.

RGP, Eastwood purposefully left that a bit ambiguous so the audience could make up their own minds. Here's an  excerpt from an interview Clint gave to Richard Thompson and Tim Hunter of Film Comment in 1978:
Quote
It's much more interesting for the audience to write with you, to draw with you. ... At the end of Josey Wales, who knows what's going to happen? The audience is rooting for him to go back, but you don't show him going back into the arms of the girl he's left. He's just riding off in that direction, into the sunrise rather than the sunset. Hopefully, it gives you the feeling. The audience is willing him to go back there. That's their participation.

And from an interview with Tim Cahill of Rolling Stone in 1985:
Quote
So you have a lot of faith in your audience.

You have to. You don't play down to people, you don't say, "I'd better make this a little simpler, a little more expository." For instance, in Josey Wales, when he rides off at the end of the picture, the editor ... had wanted to superimpose the girl's face over him. He said, "We want the audience to know that he's going back to her." Well, we all know he's going back. The audience wills him back. If he rides off on the other side of town, the audience will say, "Well, he's gonna turn left." It's really looking down on an audience to tell them something they already know. Or tell them something they can draw in because it arises out of the story. I try to make that part of their job.

(Both reprinted in Clint Eastwood: Interviews, p. 60, 121-122)

Stranger, this thread seems to be about actors in The Outlaw Josey Wales who have been in other Eastwood films ... not about Eastwood's "repertory company" in general. ;)

There's still one who hasn't been mentioned, however. ;)
