<spoiler below as to why I found it unbelievable>







in just three days he goes from bitter old racist to leaving his most treasured possessions to someone of the race that he seemingly hates the most!
worse, a guy that just half an hour earlier he didn't like and didn't trust because he'd tried to rob him.

not being funny, but if I was an embittered old racist, I think it'd take more than a guy stealing my car and being made to apologise to quell my racism, in fact I think that it'd only make it worse.

It was actually the first Clint Eastwood movie I saw in the theater. I thought it was amazing. Eastwood truly is a movie genius...and supposedly he taught himself how to play the piano!
