I too have a soft spot for Two Mules..., Welshrat.  :)

The relationship is very warm.  And old Don does direct a cracking battle scene at the end! 8)

Clint was required to kill a rattler by the script ... not because it was upsetting anyone. ;)

As to Liz Taylor, no one seems to know for sure why she dropped out of the running to play Sister Sara ... I've never heard that it was because she didn't want to work with Clint, though. She met him when he was working with her then-husband Richard Burton on Where Eagles Dare, and as far as I know they got along fine. In fact, Don Siegel said Taylor gave Eastwood the script in the first place because she wanted him to co-star with her. (A Siegel Film, p. 322.)

Siegel also says that Taylor dropped out because she wanted the picture to be shot in Spain, where Burton was going to be working at the time, and the studio refused.

I think the question about the rattler is more about whether or not Clint really, actually killed a snake for the film.

I have to disagree.
I didnot like Joe Kidd at all
The whole movie lacked pace and plot.
The ending was way over the top.
HPD and Pale Rider were better.

Two Mules for Sister Sarah is another memorable Clint movie.  The concept and conduct is excellent.  Joe Kidd - hmmmmm - need to watch it again and re-think that one.  At the moment not too high on my Great Clint Movies List.
