Trivia:
Just before the shooting, Clint Eastwood had never heard of Don Siegel and Siegel had never heard nor seen any film where Eastwood acted. So both, from their side, watched several movies of each other.See more »

'McCloud' With Some Sleaze, 10 May 2006
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

In this breakout year when films could dump most of their restrictions, this inspiration for the hit television series McCloud, dumped a couple and went the low road on a few things.

The language still was pretty tame but it had a big-time sleazy atmosphere with a bunch of unlikeable characters. Susan Clark played a lot of these kind of roles in the late '60s to about 1980. Clint Eastwood and Don Stroud are the male leads and Eastwood fits the mold as a tough Arizona lawman going to New York City to bring back an escaped convict. This kind of set of the stage, I think, for his Dirty Harry series which began a couple of years after this.

The story moves well and has some good action scenes, but, man, you can tell it is the late '60s and no longer the "classic era" in Hollywood with the nudity and no one with any moral standards.
