16. Joe Kidd (1972)
Not one of Eastwood's best westerns but he still manages to make another memorable character and we plays well against Duvall.

12. Boxcar Bertha (1972)
Scorsese had yet come into his own and was clearly a for-hire directing gig. Of course, it's still good and entertaining for the most part, especially the robbing sequences.

My dad introduced me to this movie when I was 12, the day before we were to go rafting of the Chatooga, the same river that's featured in movie. What a good dad.
