Don Siegel had a very solid run during the 1970’s, especially his four collaborations with Clint Eastwood, which – of course – yielded the iconic Dirty Harry (1971). Coming in at the middle of the decade, The Black Windmill is a slickly made and well-crafted thriller that was mostly dismissed by both critics and audiences upon first release. Now, Kino has resurrected the movie on Blu-ray as part of their Studio Classics line.
