The Professionals.
Any Clint movie is worth watching.

Can't think of the names but 2 other good ones I remember were:
1.)Chuck Conners, came back into town after a number of years and got branded by Bill Bixby and some others for being a rustler.
2.)Greorgy Peck played a retired army scout and was chased by an Apache for kidnapping the Apache's son.
