Clint: A Retrospective

    By

    Over the course of a celebrated and spellbinding career - both on screen and behind the camera - Clint Eastwood has become one of the all-time Hollywood greats. From early starring roles in Sergio Leone's genre busting Spaghetti Western A Fistful of Dollars to recent movies such as Jersey Boys, he has captivated audiences with his tough guy persona for over fifty years. As a director, his films have received great acclaim. He re-invented the Western with Unforgiven, while more recent films such as Letters from Iwo Jima and Mystic River have been hailed as modern classics. He is one of only three living directors to have directed two Best Picture winners for Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby. This beautifully produced book is the definitive retrospective of this great movie icon. It features rare images from the Warner Bros. archive and revealing behind-the-scenes photos that show the film-maker at work, as well as dramatic pictures that capture his unforgettable screen performances. The award-winning film critic Richard Schickel contributes an illuminating assessment and perceptive commentary on each film. This new format paperback edition is updated to include Eastwood's latest films, as an actor in Trouble with the Curve and the director of Sully.
