Overview

Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. Clint Eastwood was catapulted to film stardom as "The Man With No Name" in Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns. Once established as a star, he became the John Wayne of his era, an American icon whose box-office drawing power remained undiluted three decades later, despite unfriendly critics, unfavourable gossip, and unspectacular forays into politics. Uniquely, Eastwood used his new-found star status to launch a second, and arguably more successful career as a director. This book analyzes all of Eastwood's films as a director, and includes information about his acting career, particularly those films directed by members of his "stock company," as well as tracing the influences of his work.
