Pale Rider

Clint Eastwood stars as a brooding, enigmatic transient (playing against type, right?) who rides into a small town and defends its villagers against an evil mining company. Pale Rider is an overly simple, painfully obvious not to mention boring Western that doesn't hold a candle to any of the great films Eastwood has starred in or directed in the genre. Otherwise, I did enjoy some of the supporting performances, including Michael Moriarty, a young Chris Penn, and Richard 'Jaws' Kiel.
