The Outlaw Josey Wales is a 1976 American Revisionist Western film set during and after the American Civil War.
It was directed by and starred Clint Eastwood (as the eponymous Josey Wales), with Chief Dan George, Sondra Locke, Sam Bottoms, and Geraldine Keams.
The film tells the story of Josey Wales, a Missouri farmer whose family is murdered by Union militants during the Civil War.
Driven to revenge, Wales joins a Confederate guerrilla band and makes a name for himself as a feared gunfighter.
After the war, all the fighters in Wales' group except for him surrender to Union officers, but they end up being massacred.
Wales becomes an outlaw and is pursued by bounty hunters and Union soldiers as he tries to make a new life for himself.
The film was adapted by Sonia Chernus and Philip Kaufman from author Asa Earl "Forrest" Carter's 1972 novel The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales (republished, as shown in the movie's opening credits, as Gone to Texas).
The film was a commercial success, earning $31.8 million against a $3.7 million budget.
In 1996, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry of the Library of Congress for being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
