Triple bill of western movies starring Clint Eastwood.
In 'High Plains Drifter' (1973), the unwelcome arrival of a stranger (Eastwood) in the town of Lagos causes resentment and fear among the locals.
However, when they come under threat from a band of escaped convicts, it is to the stranger that the townsfolk turn for salvation.
He agrees to help, and sets about teaching the populace the arts of self defence.
In 'The Beguiled' (1970), during the American Civil War, a wounded Union soldier (Eastwood) is taken in by the all-female staff of a Confederate Louisiana girls' school as their 'prize'.
However, the soldier cunningly plays the women off against each other, working on their sexual frustrations and biding his time until he can make an escape.
In 'Joe Kidd' (1972), Eastwood plays a drunken tracker coerced by American business tycoon, Frank Harlan (Robert Duvall), to go in search of Mexican agitator, Luis Chama (John Saxon).
