Product Information : High Plains Drifter (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Clint Eastwood once again portrays the 'Man With No Name' in this bleak morality play about a man who protects a frontier town from outlaws, more out of contempt for the outlaws than love for the cowardly townspeople. This dark, moody, almost supernatural western was Eastwood's second directorial effort following the very successful PLAY MISTY FOR ME.
