When the classic western, Unforgiven was released in the autumn of 1992, it was promoted as Clint Eastwood's swansong. If anything, the film catapulted his career onto a whole new level.
Unforgiven earned Eastwood the first two of his four Oscars that now place him in the pantheon of great American filmmakers.
The movie stars Clint retired old west gunslinger William Munny, reluctantly taking on one last job with the help of his old partner (Morgan Freeman) and a young man (Jaimz Woolvett) as they face off against the corrupt sheriff (Gene Hackman) of the town of Big Whiskey. The film also features the late, great Richard Harris in a memorable supporting role as a loquacious bounty hunter also after the bounty.
