Synopsis / Plot
Eastwood is Joe Kidd who comes in 1900 to the New Mexican town of Sinola, where Saxon is leading the local Mexican-Americans in a protest against the illegal acquisition of their land. Eastwood, in jail after a drunken spree, watches as Saxon's crowd, enraged by the judge (Carter) who refuses to listen to their woes, steals the forged land grants from the courthouse and sets them on fire. The rebels are about to kidnap the judge, but he's saved by Eastwood. A posse is formed, and Eastwood is invited to join it. Led by Duvall, they take more Mexican-Americans hostage and threaten to kill five of them unless Saxon surrenders. Eastwood is becoming convinced that Duvall's tactics are cruel.
