    Synopsis


    Pale Rider
    A mysterious and possibly otherworldly stranger comes to the rescue of a frontier town in this Western, which was strongly influenced by the George Stevens classic, Shane. The peace of a small mining community is shattered when Coy LaHood (Richard Dysart), the ruthless proprietor of a powerful strip-mining company, arrives in town with his son Josh (Christopher Penn) and a posse of hired guns to drive out the townspeople and take control of the territory. Megan (Sydney Penny), a young girl whose pet was killed in the melee, prays to God for someone to defend the village from the marauders; soon, the Preacher (Clint Eastwood) arrives on a pale horse, and joins forces with Hull Barrett (Michael Moriarty), the unofficial leader of the miners and one of the few who attempts to defend himself, to take a stand against LaHood and his men. As the Preacher and Barrett try to organize the miners to fight the invaders, both Megan and her mother Sarah (Carrie Snodgrass) find they're drawn to the Preacher, who keeps to himself and seems to have more than his share of secrets. Pale Rider was also directed by leading man Clint Eastwood; it was his first Western as both director and star since the acclaimed The Outlaw Josey Wales. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      The only reason I gave this movie a four and not a five is because, in my humble opinion, is basically a remake of High Plains Drifter. In both movies you aren't sure if Clint is real or a ghost. It was a great movie in its own right, but like the movie, eerily similar in many ways. Still highly recommended...

      This entertaining western, obviously inspired by Shane, begins with a young girl (Sydney Penny) praying that someone comes along to give her town a hand against tyrannical miners. That help comes in the form of a preacher (Clint Eastwood) who speaks softly but carries...,well, I think you know the rest.

      In this amazing movie, Clint Eastwood plays the role of "Preacher" in a gold town thats divided buy two kinds of people that every western needs ( Good and Bad ). "The Bad pays in gold, but Preacher pays in lead" And it ends in the in best gun fight ever!
