Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970)

Director: Don Siegel. Cast: Shirley MacLaine, Clint Eastwood. 116 min. Rated PG. Western.

The movie's selling point is obviously the odd duo of Eastwood as the reckless mercenary and MacLaine as the heavenly nun - and it works. The attractive point of the plot is what the nun is (literally) hiding behind her robes, and it'll keep you guessing till the end when mystery is delightfully revealed. Not necessarily one of Eastwood's best Westerns, but man, can he deliver those lines. ("I'd sure as hell like to know what she did before she became a nun ...")
