Quotes

Preacher Jason: I used my pulpit to teach the wrath of God - hell and damnation, the vengenance of the Lord. And I thought I had won you away from evil. But instead of conquering evil, I only made you fear God. If there's a second chance for us, perhaps I can teach you to love God and so cherish His Word that you can face evil and rise above it.
Judge John J. McLean: A fine sermon! You can repeat it over at the saloon. I might bring the rest of your flock back!

An inspiration for "High Plains Drifter"?
5 April 1999 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

Despite the wooden acting of its stars, this film's intriguing themes and well-written dialog elevate it to something out of the ordinary. "A Day of Fury" is about the end of the Old West, embodied by the gunfighter, and its replacement by "decent folk" and their values. However, one gunfighter returns to town and exposes the hypocrisy and small-mindedness that lies beneath the veneer of civilization. This film is a must-see for those who love Clint Eastwood's "High Plains Drifter" as it seems to have inspired that film to a large degree. (One character remarks that if Jagade is allowed to stay, "He'll turn this town into hell.") Despite the emotionless acting of its leads and the irritating, strangely pronounced name of the main character, I enjoyed this film a great deal for its cynical view of the human character and its exposure of human weakness and fear.
