This is a confusing question. I don't really understand what you mean. My favorite villain in an Eastwood film is probably Mitch Leary in "In the Line ofF Fire," who plays the would-be assassin. What does it mean to be the favorite "worst" villain. Does this mean the acting was poor but it was in a villainous role, or who was the most evil character? I am not sure. Please clarify.

I go along with antonis.  Lee Van Cleef is perfect as The Bad.  The part is great and I always feel a little sorry when he dies.  ;)

Yeah... I also gotta go along with Lee Van Cleef.  Although Scorpio in Dirty Harry is a close second.

Gene Hackman as Little Bill Daggett in Unforgiven. Though you might say he's really the good guy ... trying to prevent gun violence in his town.

Maybe not the most evil but I liked Everett McGill in Heartbreak Ridge.

Scorpio and Mitch Leary are two of my favorite villains. Both actors gave brilliantly creepy performances.

Give credit where it is due to the acting and direction in Unforgiven. My emotional nature is set upon every time I have viewed the film such that I embody Munny in his rage against the villains that have harmed and desecrated my only and last friend.

Kill my friend and humiliate him? Then you will pay Hell.

The villain arousing the greatest emotional ire was any and all who were responsible, or, in my drunken rage,  any who I might happen to see as responsible.

Unforgiven is a fabulously successful film for the way that it involves a viewer in the emotions of a film persona and therefore may help a viewer learn an important lesson about their own human condition.

The worst villain in a CE film was, perhaps slightly paraphrased, according to Munny, "Every one of you Sons Of b*$@hes!"

Yeah, Cassidy really created a piece of sleeze in that film character, the cold blooded way he set up Hemlock. You notice the way Hemlock grinned when he noticed  he was being followed? And I appreciated it when he rescued the dog.

Scorpio..!

Right on! I remember when I first saw DH that Scorpio was somebody I could hate without one ounce of mercy. It was a genuinely masterful job of acting.

Know what? I bet the actor was a really nice guy in offstage life.

Geraldine Page in The Beguiled
That's interesting. I could see Page being considered a villain in The Beguiled, but there's a couple of characters that could, Eastwood's included.

Perry usually manages to come up with rather off-beat answers to these kinds of questions. And after all, it's Page who told little Amy to pick some nice mushrooms for dinner ...
