In one of the best introduction fight scenes for a hero, preacher played by Clint Eastwood, after dousing a match fire by a goon says “You shouldn’t play with matches’ and before the rest of the gang react, gives them a  bashing they will remember for the rest of the lives.

Pale Rider is  classic commercial film woven around a legend, someone who shows up when evil forces are at full play and meek have nothing else to do but pray.  Clint Eastwood on a pale horse appears as if the prayers of a teen girl are answered and with him brings hell.
In short, Pale Rider is a about how a hero who rescues a poor village from the plunder of a rich businessman. Producer-Director Clint Eastwood, makes it a different fare, with religious undertones and a preacher as the lead character, who is out there to execute God’s will.
