Overview

As a star, Clint Eastwood is recalled primarily for two early roles - the "Man with No Name" of three European-made Westerns and "Dirty" Harry Callahan, the uncompromising cop who spoke softly and carried a big gun in five movies. But like few other stars, Eastwood has shaped his own career by appearing almost exclusively in films he produced or co-produced, frequently under his own direction. No other contemporary dramatic star has directed himself so often. The interviews collected here range over the nearly three decades of Eastwood's directorial career. The emphasis is on practical filmmaking issues and on his philosophy of filmmaking.
