Clint Eastwood is one of the true Hollywood greats. Since the 1960′s, audiences around the world have been fascinated by Eastwood’s style — with his deceptively soft voice, squinty eyes, and world-weary cynicism, Clint Eastwood has built up an awesome reputation as one of the meanest, yet coolest, heroes of the screen.
Eastwood’s career started rather uninspiringly back in the mid 1950′s, with brief appearances in low-budget horror movies and T.V. commercials. A few years later, he acquired more notability as Rowdy Yates in the hit T.V. Western Rawhide. However, it wasn’t until the mid 1960′s, through a trio of “Spaghetti Westerns” that established Clint Eastwood as a star.
Building upon that success, Eastwood switched his allegiance and teamed up with director and mentor Don Siegel, a partnership which resulted in a number of great films, including the one that ultimately made Eastwood a superstar, Dirty Harry.
Clint Eastwood soon found himself calling the shots in his directorial debut, the highly acclaimed psychological thriller, Play Misty For Me. His impressive reputation for high quality work has continued its way through the eighties and into the nineties with the Academy Award winning film Unforgiven, and recent blockbusters such as The Bridges Of Madison County, Absolute Power and Space Cowboys.
