Amy & Paul saddle up for Clint Eastwood’s revisionist 1992 Western Unforgiven! They ask if Gene Hackman is truly the villain of the piece, put the film in the context of Eastwood’s career, and praise the script’s comic touches. Plus: Screenwriter David Webb Peoples discusses Unforgiven’s origins, and Saul Rubinek (W.W. Beauchamp) tells stories from the set that shed light on Eastwood’s directing style.
