These are the only three Eastwood westerns that I dont own.  Joe Kidd, Hang Em High, and Two Mules for Sister Sara.  Just curious which movie out of these three is your favorite?

I edited your post to make the title more descriptive.

I don't feel very strongly about any of these. I guess Hang 'em High and Two Mules for Sister Sara are about equal in my affections, with Joe Kidd trailing behind ... pretty far behind, come to think of it.

Have you seen all three movies, Rawhide? Two Mules for Sister Sara is easily my favorite out of those three.

I got this collection that included two of those:



I had already owned High Plains Drifter but it was a good enough price that I got it for Joe Kidd and Two Mules.

I've actually never seen Two Mules all the way through before.  And Iv'e never seen Joe Kidd before. I know pretty sad considering how big a fan I am of Clint's.  But I have watched Hang em high several times before.  I have seen that same 3 movie dvd set before and am very tempted to buy it even though i also have High Plains drifter as well.  But it would knock out two more that I dont have.  Does this three movie dvd set have each movie on its own disc or are the disc double sided.  Is it a pretty good case how are the movies inside the case set up?

thanks

Do they sell all three of these Joe Kidd, Two Mules, and Hang em high on one dvd case.  I saw above that two are in one case but am wondering if they sell all three in one dvd case?  I just dont want to have a ton of dvd cases if I dont have too.  Also, if you have all three of these movies do you have all three in there own dvd case like each movie individually?  Three individual movies, or do you have like the set above which has two mules and Joe kidd in one dvd case?

Thanks

Joe Kidd is his best Western after Josey Wales, H.P.D. and the Spaghetti Leone's.

Haha I'm with KC on that one.
Don't even get me started on Joe Kidd :D
Let's just say that it wasn't love at first sight ;D maybe I should watch it again. And maybe I will. In the meantime:

1) Hang 'em High
2) Two Mules
3) Joe Kidd

Hang'Em High.

For some reason, I never really liked "Joe Kidd"

Hang  'em High would be my first pick and then followed by Two Mules. If I never see Joe Kidd again it will not break my heart. I put that film with City Heat and Pink Cadillac!

Haha! I agree with the first part but I've always liked City Heat and Pink Cadillac :P
They're so silly... they're almost good ;) They're not masterpieces but I've always had a fun time watching them.
Joe Kidd on the other hand was so bad it felt like nails on a chalkboard to me :o
I'll try and watch it again sometime, just to make sure...

Hang Em High & Two Mules are both very entertaining but I feel they are too long and a bit dissjointed. They feel more like a traditional studio movie but not in a good way.

Joe Kidd on the other hand has always felt more like a Clint film if that makes any sense. It has a terrific score and John Saxon in his best "mexican" guise. Add to that, Robert Duvall chewing up the scenery and I find it to be the one out of these three that I can watch time and time again.

I know I'll be in the minority but Joe Kidd for me, by a mile.

Hello!  I'm back after a LONG haitus!  I thought my handle was MakeItVin, but I guess I'm just good 'ole FourEyedTom!  Anyway, I like Two Mules best of those three.  Joe Kidd is awesome, but High Plains Drifter always seemed to be on TV whenever I'd flip through channels as a kid.  But definately "Two Mules".  Excellent locations and, well, just every reason....

Hello there,
I think that the best one is Hang'em High because I always enjoy the fact that someone takes revenge...

I'm surprised Joe Kidd gets so little love, I've always found it very enjoyable, just like I've found the other two mentioned in the thread. Hard for me to choose though, it would have to be between Joe Kidd and Hang 'Em High.

Like all three films but when compared,Joe Kidd loses in my books too.I´ve always thought that with a cast and all the other talents involved with that film,it should`ve been much better.Now it`s"only" entertaining enough-little western.

Have not watched Hang `Em High for ages but have seen it so many times that I do remember it to be a good,solid western with an ending that slightly disappoints me.Still better film than Joe Kidd easily.

Two Mules For Sister Sara is a great western if not as great as Sergio Leone`s westerns or rest of the Eastwood`s westerns (Josey Wales etc ).The film has quite good chemistry between Maclaine and Eastwood,lots of action,great music and good plot.Very entertaining.

Need to watch these last two again soon  ;)
