Clint Eastwood: 35 Films 35 Years at Warner Bros

I am a huge Clint Eastwood fan — I love the Spaghetti Westerns that, unfortunately, are not part of this package.

And these are remastered or BluRay — so I would not get these for my favorite Cinephile.

Still, at $77 bucks, this is a whole lotta Clint for not a lot of money. I know quite a few people this will make a good Shopmas present for.

    why 1968 ? I wondered where “dodidodala” was
    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)

    I wonder what his profits/loss statement looks like .. just wondering .. cause even if its an overall loss
    its a plus (in my book)

    last line from Lonesome Dove (a great western / birth of a nation):
    (crossing the LD bridge looking off in the sunset)
    newspaper reporter: They say you are a man of vision
    Woodrow F Call: A man of vision you say .. Ya – hell of a vision

    great work if you can get it – tell me a story of great adventure (since we all can’t)

    I’m a student with not a lot of money and my father is a Clint Eastwood fan so at first this seemed perfect. However, the reviews on Amazon are pretty bad. Apparently the packaging is awful and all of the DVDs are double-sided which, combined, makes it nearly impossible not to damage the discs when removing them. I think I’ll stay away from this one.

    CLINT EASTWOOD: A selected filmography

    CLINTON EASTWOOD, Jr. was a studio contract player, TV star, movie star and mega-star, and ultimately a much lauded auteur and aging Hollywood legend. The master of tough guy stoicism picked up the mantel from his mentors, b-movie action director Don Siegel and the Italian romantic poet of stylized westerns, Sergio Leone, and carved out a unique career for over half a century.

    Early career:

    Clint is now over 80, but he was once a brash young contract player for Universal, unable to get a film career going in the US and so played a supporting role on the successful TV series “Rawhide” (1959-1966). The series was a hit overseas, too, so Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone cast him as the leading “man-with-no-name” in a trilogy of Spaghetti Westerns that made Eastwood an international film star (he claims he wound up getting the role because James Coburn, to whom the role was originally offered, wanted $25,000. Eastwood accepted the role for $15,000). Clint parlayed that success into some Hollywood leads in various western, cop and war films… some good, some bad and some ugly… until he hit it huge with again DIRTY HARRY.

    A Fistful of Dollars (1964)
    For a Few Dollars More (1965)
    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
    Hang ‘Em High (1968)
    Coogan’s Bluff (1968)
    Where Eagles Dare (1968)
    Paint Your Wagon (1969)
    Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970)
    Kelly’s Heroes (1970)
    The Beguiled (1971)
    Dirty Harry (1971)

    Clint as Director:

    Eastwood used his new-found clout to coerce his first opportunity to direct, with the thriller PLAY MISTY, which was good enough to earn him more chances behind the camera (as long as he was in front of it, too). He followed it up with some more acting gigs in between acting/directing, including 2 mediocre DIRTY HARRY sequels and his 2 orangutan movies, which made a fortune. His best work of this period included OUTLAW JOSIE WALES, a spiritual rebirth of the genre, and the quirky little BRONCO BILLY about the nature of self-mythologizing, that was a theme that would come to occupy much of Eastwood’s later work. THUNDERBOLT & LIGHTFOOT is also a worthwhile caper film and HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER is a revisionist western with supernatural overtones, foreshadowing his subsequent work on PALE RIDER and UNFORGIVEN.

    Clint as Producer/Director:

    One of the biggest box office stars of the 1970s, it was no surprise that, by the 1980s, he had taken over the additional role of producing most of his own work, starting with the uninspired cold war thriller FIREFOX. Most of the films of this period were mediocre to bad, including 2 more DIRTY HARRY sequels, a lame team-up with fellow BO champ Burt Reynolds, mediocre actioners, and some intensely personal flops like HONKYTONK MAN and WHITE HUNTER. His notable films were the cop thriller TIGHTROPE, which explored the dark side of the heroic character, and BIRD his biopic of jazz great Charlie Parker.

    The Rookie (1990) [actor/ director]
    White Hunter Black Heart (1990) [actor/ director/ producer]

    Clint comes back:

    The outright flops of CADILLAC, ROOKIE AND WHITE HUNTER put his career on the cutting room floor. But Clint returned with a roar, as he hit all the right notes with UNFORGIVEN, a western about the anti-heroic nature of the authentic western hero and a critique of his own screen persona. It was not only a huge hit, it became the moment when the critical community reassessed his career and dubbed him a master. His last starring role in someone else’s picture was IN THE LINE OF FIRE, a terrific cop thriller that knowingly explores the aging of the Eastwood persona, as do most of the films of this period. A PERFECT WORLD allowed Clint the opportunity to direct Kevin Costner in the lead, while he took a supporting role, and it’s a surprisingly moving film. MADISON COUNTY has no business being anywhere near as good as it is, considering the source material. But he ended the period with a few wan examinations of (and examples of) aging and decline, like TRUE CRIME, SPACE COWBOYS and BLOOD WORK.

    Clint as wizened auteur:

    Eastwood’s love of jazz and European cinema really begins to influence his filmmaking style by this point, as he focuses more on character than plot, more on lingering emotion than fast-cutting action, including his great later works MYSTIC RIVER, MILLION DOLLAR BABY, and GRAN TORINO.

    * Mystic River (2003) [director/ producer / composer]
    ** Million Dollar Baby (2004) [actor/ director/ producer / composer]
    Flags of Our Fathers (2006) [director/ producer / composer]
    * Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) [director/ producer]
    Changeling (2008) [director/ producer / composer]
    Gran Torino (2008) [actor/ director/ producer / composer]
    Invictus (2009) [director/ producer]
    Hereafter (2010) [director/ producer / composer]
    J. Edgar (2011) [director/ producer / composer]

    He said that GRAN TORINO was his last screen performance, and a grand one it was, but he is currently planning to star in a baseball movie, TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE, scheduled for 2013 His last two directorial efforts, HEREAFTER, a supernatural thriller starring Matt Damon, and the J.EDGAR biopic with Leo DiCaprio (2011), while both commercially unsuccessful, were thoughtful studies on themes consistent with his overall body of work, with the former a contemplation of death and what comes after, and the latter exploring the psychosexual dysfunctions of an American “hero”.

    So Clint Eastwood has gone from b-movie bit player to most acclaimed auteur of his generation, with all the ups and downs of a Hollywood career in between.

    And he’s not done yet.
