No kid was harmed in the making of this movie.

Joe Kidd. John Sturges. There is something about this movie that attracted me. I had to watch it since I was and am a John Sturges fan. He made plenty movies that I loved to watch. However the movie is a disappointment unless you see the beauty of the characters developing which would later come to full grown complexity. Eastwoood is grooming and training his piece-du-resistance character acting and Duvall is clearly on the road of becoming one of the great actors. The movie Joe Kidd is agreeable but easy forgettable against the much better westerns that Eastwood would make in his life. (1972)
