Title: The Official MEMBER INTRODUCTIONS Thread
Post by: Matt on March 08, 2004, 06:09:54 PM
Since we've gotten a lot of new members lately, I thought I'd start this thread for any of our new members, or even our existing members, to introduce themselves to the members of this forum. Let us know a bit about yourself and how you became a Clint fan. We'd also love to know how you found this site. Basically, tell us anything you'd like us to know about you! We also have a "Clint Eastwood Web Board Member Map" where you can add your location and see where some of the other Clint Eastwood fans who are board members here live. You can check that map out HERE (http://www.frappr.com/clinteastwoodwebboardmembermap10).

We'll be merging all threads where members introduce themselves into this one, so keep checking back here to see who our newest members are.

Welcome to all our newest members. We hope you like it here. :)

Hi everybody, my nickname is [email protected] and I am from Uruguay. My main language is spanish and my name is Alejandro (Alexander in English)

I am a musician from Montevideo (capital City) guitar player, part time pro, and I own a computer store and cybergame.
I am a Beatles and Elvis Fan too
I am part of 12 years old rock band with two records in my country and two songs edited in two tribute albums in UK.
The name band is Bel Air, you can get more info in my profile

I pick nickname [email protected], because my first guitar (1970), was a german made, brand Framus

My mother was a huge clint´s fan, so when I was 13 years old I became fan too with "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly" or "El bueno, el malo y el feo" in spanish

I saw twice the first day. Later I bought it in VHS and now I have it in DVD
I must say I saw it more than 15 times. I saw all of his movies, but no more than 3 or 4 times each
It is the Western Nirvana for me, i enjoy like the first time every time I saw Tuco, Angel Eyes and Blondi
Is the best movie I have seen, always in my first rank

I was looking some Eastwood info and I found this board, and since that I love it!

I would like to thank Matt and mgk for their friendship and warm.

See you around, and "Imagine all the people
living life in peace"

Hi guys

My name is Johan (pronounced youhun) and I just joined the board. Obviously I'm a Clint fan and I have been visiting this site since 1998. I finally decided that it was time to join.
I live in Cape Town, South Africa.
I must say that I am really getting tired of Charlize Theron. She is in the country at the moment and she is all over the place. In the papers, on tv, on all our radio stations etc etc.
Don't get me wrong, I am very proud of her, but enough is enough. Let her be. I wish Clint would visit South Africa. He's not really that big here, although Mystic River did pretty well here.
Anyway, it's now 16h40 here and time to go home. Cheers.

Post by: Tuco on March 11, 2004, 08:00:49 AM
Hey Johan, I'm new as well.  I'm from Canada.   The thing I hate about Charlize Theron, is why'd she change her accent?  Why is it that every actor that goes to the US from other countries feels they must sound American?  (BTW This is not a knock on Americans, I love the States)Even our actors like Shatner, Donald Sutherland, J Carrey, Mike Myers and Leslie Nielson have all blunted the Canadian sounding words in their accent.   Christopher Plummer is probably the only one of our actors that hasn't.

Oh yeah, and I forgot to add - Clint Eastwood is my all time hero!  My favourite movie of all time is Unforgiven and GBU is also one of my favourite films.

how you became a Clint fan  
Easy, Sir (http://smiles.portalby.com/anim/12.gif)
as a child  ;D I was always very keen on prairies (huh? wright spelling?), cowboys, riding, shooting, cool grinning, trigger pulling and so on. And one day I found out there is not just a horseman in stetson, but  also a very handsome one.
now I`m 23 and still stupid enough  ;D

Hey guys, I've been around for a few months, occassionally posting questions that have been previously discussed, but mostly lurking. Unfortunately I'm not from an exotic place, just cold, dark Pennsylvania USA.

I became a fan watching butchered network versions of the Dirty Harry films as a kid in the 70's and decided to check out other Eastwood films and discovered I loved most of what Clint did.

Great board, I've learned a lot here.

Post by: Johan on March 12, 2004, 12:34:05 AM
How did I become a Clint fan? The first movie I ever remember seeing was Dirty Harry. It just sort of stuck in my head. I must have been 5. I also remember seeing Play Misty For Me at a young age.
Plus Clint made such an impression on me as a young boy. He was so cool and calm, always had the right thing to say, plus at that age I enjoyed the action and western movies. As I grew older I began to appreciate his movies on a different level. Not just for the action, but that they were different type of movies, the anti hero, the guy that shoots people in the back etc.
I am loved the monkey movies, I thought they were hilarious. I remember watching them as a kid, we canned ourselves, especially the scenes with the black widows.
I don't agree with Clint's moral values but as a filmmaker and a professional I respect him a lot. The fact that he makes movies with small budgets, finishes them ahead of schedule and still make quality productions, I respect that.

Post by: Jonaki on March 17, 2004, 04:34:17 PM
Hi, I've been a Clint Eastwood fan since I was in short trousers. Grew up with his films - my father was a big fan of his westerns and the Dirty Harry films. For years my brother and I used to speak to each other in our own private lexicon, derived from Every Which Way But Loose and Any Which Way You Can. Basically it was Black Widow talk ("We're the Black Widows, feared throughout the land..."; "I put all the bikes on Beddoe to win..." etc. etc.). To anyone not acquainted with the movies, we probably seemed quite mad.

I wonder if anyone could help me - I have a picture I'd like to post here. I'm a bit new to the technology, so can anyone tell me how to do it in layman's terms. Does it have to be on a website, or can I simply send it from my hard disk??

Cheers!

Greetings to All!  Just joined the board last fall when I was in search of a particular watch that Clint wore in the movie "Bridges".  Lilly came to my rescue with unbelieveable information! I have been a Clint fan forever, "Bridges" being my favorite.  What a terrific resource the board has been.  By the way, if anyone hears from Lilly tell her to post!  Indianapolis is home- Indy 500 and Indy Colts........May all your bridges be covered. :)

Just like to say hi to everyone and to introduce myself.  

I've just signed up but have been visiting the site for a while now and it is the best Clint site in existence.

I've been a Clint fan since I was in my early teens (about 15 years now) and have admiration and respect for Clint and his body of work.

I live in the South West of the United Kingdom having recently moved here from near London.

I previously had a rather large collection of all things Eastwood but as lack of space has been an issue I passed it on to other fans.  I used to belong to the Admirers of Clint Eastwood fan club in the UK that was run by Dave Turner (of the old Clint Eastwood Appreciation Society).

Although I no longer own much Clint memorabilia, I still enjoy watching the films and reading up on his latest projects.  

I have been to Carmel and Monterey many times and have had the pleasure of eating at both the Hogs Breath Inn and The Mission Ranch but unfortunately did not get to meet the man himself!

Hope to speak to you all sometime later but bye for now and thanks for producing an interesting forum that has kept me informed and amused!

greetings from the philippines!
as we say here - mabuhay (close to viva)

guess i grew up with his movies, remembered a grade school classmate singing 'every which way but loose' during recess.

clint is so famous here that his 'dirty harry' persona is a welcome attribute if your running for mayor here - shoot the bad guys if all else fails

dvds are not THAT available so we have to settle for vcds, took a 'space cowboys' vcd with me during my work stint in africa - the guys loved it.

here's hoping that the guys lasts as well as his movies
if he ever comes to the philippines he'll probably get royal treatment and a free tour from at least TWO mayors that say they represent his 'tough on crime' persona.

mabuhay to you all

Hi everyone, I'm Sean & I'm from Scotland. I'm new to these pages but cant wait to get involved.  :)

Clint has been my favourite actor since I was around 15 years old, now I'm 33 so I've been a fan for a while. I love his films more now than ever. Too many to pick a favourite but if pushed I'd probably go for 'Josey Wales'.  :D

I have a big claim to fame, I actually met Clint & got him to sign my copy of 'Dirty Harry' a few years back when he was visiting Scotland to play golf.   ;D  What a day that was.

Cant wait to search the posts & add my input. Speak soon.

 My name is Jason and I live in the UK.Ive been a huge fan of Clint's for well over twenty years.I think it was probably A Fistful Of Dollars that first made me aware of him.Im sure those Westerns mean a lot to all members of the board!  ;D
 Today I watched The Good,The Bad and The Ugly and it took me back twenty years to when I first seen it as a kid of 14.I think over the years Ive always thought of it as a super Western......But it truly is MORE than that.But Im getting off track  ;D  Ive visited this site before and found it great for info and debate but I never joined.But there are two kinds of people in this life...those who pass up an opportunity....and those who join...and today I joined  ;)

Hello everyone!

I am a new Clint Eastwood fan and I'm so glad I found this community. I had never watched any of Clints westerns until my fiance told me that I had to watch at least one. I grumbled and thought okay fine, just to appease him we rented 'The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly'. Well needless to say I was hooked! I've since watched 'A Fist Full of Dollars', 'For a Few Dollars More', 'Hang Em High' and 'Pale Rider'. I have a few others on my list that I'm looking forward to!

I had always enjoyed Clint in his more recent films like 'Unforgiven', 'Absolute Power', etc. but I feel like I'm seeing him in a whole new light! As a person I always admired his classiness and pleasant personality. I'm so glad to have finally been 'turned on' to his earlier work. I think Clint is a superb actor and quite frankly, his westerns make me feel like he's just the ultimate badass!

 ;D

 Thanks for the reply KC.I was glad to hear that Eli was on fine form that night.
 He still looked super on the DVD for Good,the Bad and the Ugly.I really could of listened to him talk for hours more! ;D Im sure just seeing him on that brought back some super cool memories of that for you.

I grew up in the dark days of Clint.  There was no cable TV in these parts and no Blockbusters , so his movies weren't even around.  This was the Firefox era.  no offense to anyone who like Firefox.  But  Escape From Alcatraz was always on tv and the 2 monkey movies.  Other than that he was just a name.  But then cable tv came and TNT or TBS had a 24 hour Eastwood marathon on the day after Thanksgiving (?)  which they did yearly.  Anyway I happened to get up early and flipped channels just to watch a few minues, and Fistful of Dollars played, then For a Few Dollars More and then The Good the Bad and the Ugly... I was getting tired but they kept coming and I had to keep watching. Nxt was Two Mules for Sister Sara. Wow that was a long day.  I remember having to work on that day one of the following years and set up a TV at work to watch these movies.  Then In the Line of Fire came out in the theaters and was amazing especially since I had spent a day with the secret service on their detail for the president a couple of months before (they really do talk into their pen like devices) and then Unforgiven and then the days of DVD and it was like seeing these movies again for the first time---ah widescreen and no commercials :) thats what they were supposed to look like-they were even BETTER!!!! thats how it all started, who knew these movies existed before cable and the internet :)

Greetings!  I'm Howie and relatively new to this site.  I love it.  I've been a Clint fan since the days of Rawhide (they weren't reruns when I first saw them) and I still watch them on the Hallmark Channel on Saturdays when not I'm working on my honey-do's list.  As for the movies, I used to watch them at the drive in theatre where I grew up.  I would have to go at least twice because I did'nt see all the movie the first time, Ahem, If you know what I mean.  If I need to explain, let me know.  The drive in is still in operation only now I see all the movie the first time!  Anyway, love the site and look forward to man years of enjoyment.

Hi,

i am a big Rawhide fan and that is main interest in coming to this board. but i also enjoyed Firefox because of its interesting (although at times tedious) depiction of the Soviet Union during the cold war. my girlfriend is Russian so this now holds a special fascination for me now and i can appreciate it more.

i also enjoyed In The Line of Fire and thought it was an extremely well made thriller.

i never really liked Clint's spaghetti westerns or got into his Dirty Harry films either. but that is what is good about Clint's career. there is pretty much something for everyone.

thanks to those who administer this website! it looks very nice and is one of the best i have seen.

Howdy all.  It's about time I got around to saying hello to everyone.  I've been busy checking out the topics posted here and creating my own.  This concept is great; sharing ideas & thoughts with other CE fans around the world.  I turned into a die-hard fan the winter before Firefox came out; I'd seen a few of Clint's movies on the big screen with a friend before then; 'Every Which Way But Loose', 'Escape From Alcatraz' & 'Any Which Way You Can' (missed 'Bronco Billy' due to limited release).  I enjoyed those movies but after a good dose of Dirty Harry & 'spaghetti westerns' on tv, I became hooked.  I'm always looking forward to hearing about Clint's next project.  Now I also look forward to hearing from and exchanging thoughts, ideas & laughs with you!

Just wanted to say I'm a new thread member and I'm happy to be on. I love Eastwood and his work. Just saw Coogan's Bluff the other day for the first time and I love that movie as I love the rest.

Some of my favorites are:

The Good...
For a Few....
Unforgiven
Dirty Harry
Thunderbolt...

Its tuff to just narrow them down any could have been favorites.

Hope to here from you and your favorite five Eastwood movies.

Welcome to the Eastwood Web Board.

I think you will find that a lot of us suffer from the same problem that you do.....it's very hard to list our favorite movies of the ones he has done because almost all of them are so good.  In my case, it usually depends on what I have seen most recently.  A few that usually make my list all the time are:

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Dirty Harry
The Bridges of Madison County


And, one I just saw this week that I've always been fond of is.........

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot

We have had many threads in the past where we have discussed our favorites.  You might want to do a search and see if you can find some of those, too.

Hi guys! I  registered here a long time ago but never posted. I thought it was about time I said hello! I've been a huge fan of Clint's all my life,and about a year ago I got to see "TGBU" on the big screen at the Nuarte theatre in Santa Monica. I dragged my wife to it and she actually enjoyed it! Seeing the old movies like that on the big screen makes you appreciate them a whole lot more. I wanted to ask everyone out there if anyone has heard if any of his other movies will hit the big screen? Preferably in the L.A. area?

Heej, I'm Bryn and I'm from Holland. I registered some ten minutes ago and my first post can be read in the 'How did you become a Clint fan?' thread, in which I explain the rather unusual way I became hooked on Clint's films.

So that's that  ;D

Well, I have only seen a few of his films but I'm especially looking forward to the westerns. The Good the Bad and the Ugly, a Fistful of Dollars and all...

Oh, a bit more about myself:

I'm 17 years old, female, and I'm having my final exams next week (I should be learning now...), and I'm going to study English Language and Culture. If I pass.

I live in Holland, in a wee place in the middle of this already very wee country.

I...love to read (Terry Pratchett!) and watch films (Clint!).

On the whole I'm a bit of a weird person but people tend to pat my shoulder and say 'therethere'.

Hi,

I'm Danish living in Spain, and I am a great fan of Clint, Jazz, football and golf. So I could discuss at least three things with Clint if I ever met him!

My favourite Clint films are Dirty Harry, The outlaw Josey Wales, and Unforgiven, until I saw Mystic River. I am now in doubt, is that better than Unforgiven?, maybe - both masterpieces. I haven't watched the Lord of the rings no. 3 thing yet, but it must be really good to beat Mystic River to best film at the Oscars.

I have this dream that Clint would make a fifht Dirty Harry - the plot would be something like Harry having retired, but having to come out of retirement to help solve an old case - causing complete havoc!

I look forward to checking this website in the future!

Clint is simply the man.. about 25 years ago I watched "The Good..." for the first time and I never stopped being a fan since. After years and years (it drove my wife nuts) of trying to find out what kind of glasses he wore in "Dirty Harry", destiny led me to this site.. As I posted a few days ago, I finally got my shades!!!(and my wife's sanity is back..lol) As Clint would say, I am going ahead, making my day. Cheers, Michael

Hi I'm Lin and a new member.
I'm from Richmond, North Yorkshire in the UK.
I have been a Clint Eastwood fan since Rawhide. (Does that date me?)  
I found the site quite by accident and I'm glad I did.     Of all Clint's movies I love The Bridges of Madison County most, as it shows a different side to him.  Clint hasn't made a movie yet that I don't like, however some are better than others and some I want to see over again.

Hi all, I go by the nickname of umrguy42.  I currently attend the University of Missouri-Rolla as a grad student.  

As far as my introduction to Clint, I would have to say probably seeing The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, and The Outlaw Josey Wales (along with Dirty Harry in there) on video, and somehow, I wound up an Eastwood fan.  (No regrets since!)

I found this site via Google, running across the "Clint's Guns" thread (which I'm finding really useful, except that I'm waiting for Josey Wales info!)...

Hi, Im quite new to this site,but I can say I have been an Eastwood fan since the age of 13 in the early 80`s.
Dirty harry was my movie hero growing up. This genre set the standard for the cop action movie and when i see some of the movies in this genre nowadays, Im  moved to say, `What  is this crap'???' Actually, Im inclined to say alot worse,but Ill keep myself in check.
But Im looking forward to posting here whenever I can and Im looking forward to some spirited and hearty interaction. `You can count on that.'

Hi there!

I just love Clint's movies and have since I was a young girl.  Just wanted to say that I met Clint in person.  I live in Monterey, and he owns the Mission Ranch in Carmel.  A girlfriend and I were there one afternoon about 5yrs ago, btwn lunch/dinner crowd during the slow season.  He stopped in for a quick drink.  I approached him calmly and cooly... told him I really liked his work.  Of course I knew from news media that he HATES this!  But did it anyway.  He was very gracious, and even GAVE ME A HUG!!!!!!!!!!!   I just felt so blessed that if I were to only meet ONE celebrity in my life, it was Clint!!

I had always been aware of Clint since they showed his movies on the networks in the 70's and 80's. I really became a fan in the late 80's when they showed a bunch of them on cable. Been hooked ever since

It's been wonderful to have Clint around for all these years, and like many, I'd sure like to see one more western before he rides off into the sunset.

Welcome, Jack! How far West are you riding?  8)

Later this month, I'll be visiting some friends in the Sierra's, but my long term plan (3 years out) is to relocate to Ridgway, CO or somewhere close. I have several friends out there, and fell in love with the place on my first visit.

It's dry as hell, but the aridity is part of the charm. Sure beats the 100% humidity and 95 degree heat in the Mississippi Delta!

Of course, everyone that moves out west wants to be the last immigrant, and the current residents probably don't care too much for newcomers and rightly so. But I'll have a small footprint, since my plan is to just build a small cabin and live simply.

Greeting to you all.

I basically stumbled on to your website when I did a web search for a list of Clints Westerns.
I was very impressed with your site that I signed up as a member and have posted some opinons.

I come from New Zealand and live in the south island in a city called Christchurch.

I have grown up with Clint esp his westerns but enjoy his many of his other films.

What I like about Westerns is the sense of freedom is reprentsents begin able to ride the open plains.

I have started collecting his westerns movies on dvd.

Thanks for the great website and the sense of community it brings to all Clints fans

Hey Everyone!! I've been a member since last year but lost my connection till today, but this is my first stop and looking forward to many discussions. I can't remember when I first discovered Clint but it was early in life and I'm so thankful for my parents letting me have a T.V in my bedroom. "The Outlaw Jose Wales" Changed everything!!!! I'd Like to know where I could get a copy of "Gone to Texas" I've looked on E-bay a few times but with no luck. See y'all around

Hi beefjerky, and we're happy to have you back among us! If you're looking for the book that The Outlaw Josey Wales was based on, it is in print, though not directly under the title Gone To Texas. You'll find it on Amazon.com ...

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0826311687/

... for $11.48, plus shipping. This edition was published by the University of New Mexico Press in 1989. It contains the novel that the film was based on and a sequel. The full title is Josey Wales: Two Westerns : Gone to Texas & The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales, by Forrest Carter.

The first of these was originally privately printed for the author in 1973 under the title The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales, and that is the title it bore when Eastwood read it. It was then reissued by Delacorte Press under the title Gone to Texas, and when the film was released in 1976, a tie-in edition was published as The Outlaw Josey Wales.

The sequel, The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales, was published in 1976. It was also made into a film, but Eastwood had nothing to do with that one. ;)

Howdy all

I am an aerial mapping photograper out of Tucson, Arizona. I do work all over the southwest and have mapped 103 sites in Mexico as well. There are places in Mexico that remind me of the Dollar trilogy every time I go down where it be for business or pleasure. It sort of has the ambience of the old west.

I got my first taste of what this is all about when I saw TGBU on the big screen and stayed to watch it twice that day. I have followed Clint's work every since.

I still believe that TGBU, Josey Wales and THe Unforgiven are the finest films ever made. I am a Dirty Harry fan as well.

Hello everyone.
I grew up watching Clint Eastwood films, have always enjoyed his authentic persona on screen and off. I have recently started watching his films again and have noticed how much is hidden in the works, that I did not notice the first or second time around. Many of his films are filled with hidden messages and humor. Bridges of Madison County is one of the most wickedly humorous films I've ever seen, for instance, and the first time I saw it, I thought it was just a mushy romance film...But it is more telling of the latter-day Clint than any of his works. The same can be said of Space Cowboys.
Unforgiven, too has a lot of clever details to the script, that remind me of Outlaw Josey Wales...
What can one say of Clint's long and extraordinary career other than, Holy Cow!
 ;)
Anyway, I'm a fan and I like this site. Hope to post frequently, but if I never have the time, I just wanted to officially introduce myself and thank Clint for his work.

Hi,

Thought I would introduce myself to you all. I've been a huge Clint fan since before I can remember, and have seen all of his films (with the exception of Blood Work and Mystic River). My favourites are Dirty Harry and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

I'm really looking forward to participating in this forum and meeting my fellow members. See you around the boards!

Maddog Frenzy here (a moniker based upon my MDF initials), coming to you from Madison, WI, USA. I'm a journalist by degree, technical writer for 15 years, middle-aged male (any women on this board? Just curious). This official site got me through some tough times, I'll spare you the details.

I usually surf into this site when a Clint flick is on AMC or whatever, just to see if anyone is chatting about whatever's showing.

Why do I like CE? He's cool. Great actor, great screen presence, classic lines (physically and verbally).  Above all, I'm fascinated with his impeccable coolness. If I ever had kids, I'd tell them to model themselves after Clint. While I tend not to worship or idolize others (rock stars, actors, etc.), I think I identify with the general character of Clint's Western characters; calm, cool, collected, pensive, and pretty much always the gentleman -- until he's crossed, at which time all's fair in love and war.

Other actors whose movies I seek out: Nicholas Cage, Christopher Walken, Dennis Hopper, and most anything by David Lynch and the Cohen (Coen?) bros. Sharon Stone is just plain yummy, as are too many actresses. I was glad to see her in a Western ("The Quick and the Dead," I believe).

Have I written too much? Hey, I'm a writer...

Hi  :D! Sorry it took me a little while to introduce myself to you all ... but here I am !

What can I say  ??? ... uhhh ... I LOVE CLINT !
 I think he is the best actor-turned-director the world has ever and will ever know, if you ask me. :D.
The Dirty Harry series, GBU, Bridges of MC, Unforgiven are cult movies to me
 ... and as for Clint the man, I find him kinda sexy and I like his coolness ....

This said, I also love the USA, Mike Jordan, Brad Pitt, peanut butter, DVDs, Manhattan, basketball, football, baseball, movies, CSI, The Political Machine, Britney Spears, Metallica, country music, Anastacia, LA, Hunter, Fred Dryer, pecan pies, reading, listening to Clint's movies' music, American History and Civilisation, jogging -I have to keep fit, who knows ? maybe one day I'll meet him ;) !-, big cars of the 70's and so much more I can't even remember LOL LOL  ...

Am I talking too much ? If you think I really am ... well then I guess this web board is definitely the right place for me !

What a nice Thread and its great to find more out about fellow posters.

Well my name is Andy and i hail from Manchester (Rain city) in England, i am out of work at the moment but undergoing training to design, create and update websites (its all fairly new to me so dont be asking techie questions lol). I have always worked but in ok ish jobs but now want a career.

I loved clubbing and dancing and dj'ed for several years which was great and i still enjoy that kind of music.

Movies have always played a big part in my life right from when i first saw the Sphagetti westerns as a kid and they blew me away.

My all time fav clint films have to be "Dirty Harry" and "Coogans Bluff" but any film with CE is always worthwhile watching.

I stumbled across this board earlier this year and really enjoy reading other peoples comment, there are some very knowledgable members here and the site has to be the best Eastwood website around.

This looks like a cool place to discuss Clint stuff.

 I'm 23, from Florida and attend seminary. I'm a relatively new Clint fan- since about September.

It all started in a rather strange way when I showed up for my first seminary class. Before the professor came in, all the students were whispering that they thought this professor acted like "if Clint Eastwood taught theology." Sure enough, the guy looks very much like Clint. To top it all off, he came to class in Dirty Harry character and scared us to death. After about 15 mins, he returned to his normal introverted self.

When I came home from school, I decided it was time for me to check out Clint's films. I went to the library, got Honkytonk Man, and have been hooked ever since. I'm now checking off the all of his films. My mom thinks I've gone crazy!

I'm looking forward to discussing my new favorite movie star.

Welcome, from a fellow Floridian. Hope you're keeping warm with this cold front we're having. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/boardwink.gif)

Since you have a professor who looks like Clint, you might really enjoy watching The Eiger Sanction. Clint is a college professor in that one (and a mountain climber, and a government assassin.)

Another noob here!

I live in Roseville, CA right outside of Sac, and it's damn cold here too. I lost all of my New England thick blood a few years ago.

I just came across the forum yesterday. I've been a Clint fan since the days of watching Rawhide when I was a kid. I see though from the upcoming birthdays, a lot of members are around my age (50).

Dirty Harry is my favorite movie period! I've seen it well over a hundred times. It's much more enjoyable now that we have decent versions on DVD to watch. I've got everything Clint has starred in on DVD, just recently for Christmas completed my collection of Eastwoods. I've yet to watch "Bridges" though...... ;)

Next to Clint films my passion is Horror flicks, I even run my own review site for them to feed my ever growing DVD addiction (over 1300 now). It's almost as bad as crack cocaine, but at least afterwards I get to keep the DVDs.

I look forward to great discussions on the films and my favorite actor! :D

Welcome, Dark ... or Jeremy! Unforgiven got me started on Eastwood, too. Enjoy the movies, enjoy the site and good luck in your Navy career! (http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/Themes/yabbse/images/post/smiley.gif)

thx for the welcoming everybody! i already stated why Clint is so awesome and inspiring on the other board with the spoilers allowed MDB overview. But i mostly like Clint's westerns and some of his Dirty Harrys. One of my favs are Unforgiven, In the Line of Fire, Good Bad and the Ugly, Pale Rider and now MDB. All the movies he's played him shows why he is the best actor ever and he can brush off any variety of roles in this industry!

Hey! I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself to the board!

My name is Sarah and I just love Clint Eastwood!  I think I first fell in love with him in his westerns, probably TGTBATU.  Unforgiven is also a really great flick that I loved.

One of Clint's most enduring traits to me was his voice, that and his smile. 

Oh a little side note, when Clint drags Tuco into town to collect the bounty, Tuco screams:
"I Hope you end up in a graveyard!" - How very fitting.  I am sure you all knew that though!

Well that's all for me!
Ta-ta!

Welcome littleblonde!

yea the thing that appealed to me the most about Clint is his voice and that mean muggin look on his face all the time which is unlike any other. Just his style of acting and directing of course is so smooth.  8)

Favourite film!! Can I only pick one?  :o Unforgiven, For a few dollars more, Heartbreak Ridge and Dirty Harry..  ;D

I found the site when I was searching for the composer of the music for the dollars trilogy. The musical pocket watch during the end scene of 'For a few dollars more' has got to be the best musical arrangement ever.  8)

  Let us know a bit about yourself and how you became a Clint fan. We'd also love to know how you found this site. Basically, tell us anything you'd like us to know about you!


Hi everybody, my name is Melody and I live in Illinois, near Chicago.  I found this website when I did an aol search for Clint Eastwood.  It was a link on one of the pages.
I’m so happy to have found it!  Whoever designed it and maintains it….excellent job!

The first Clint Eastwood movie I recall seeing at the theater is “Sudden Impact.”  Over the years I had seen a total of five of his movies, “Play Misty for Me,”  “Dirty Harry,”
“Tightrope,” and “Bridges of Madison County.”  BoMC is my all time favorite!  I’ve seen it I don’t know how many times…so much so that I pretty much know all of the dialogue.   I enjoyed all five of those movies but up until about two months ago I guess I was just kind of neutral about him.  I don’t really know how to explain what happened in the past two months.  There I was, back in January, watching BoMC yet again and suddenly…I don’t know..something clicked and I decided since I loved BoMC so much, perhaps I should check out some of his other movies.  So I went to the library to see if they had any Clint Eastwood movies.  Sure enough, they did.  I borrowed five movies and proceeded to watch them one after the other.  “High Plains Drifter” was one of the five and as I sat there watching it I found myself saying….”This is so good!”  “I never knew I liked Westerns!”  After exhausting the library's supply of his movies I turned to Netflix and I was pleasantly surprised at all the movies he has made.  I really had no clue he was in so many movies and so many genres.  Not to mention all the ones he stars and directs!

Okay, I may be slightly obsessed…LOL  but in the past month and a half I have seen every one of his movies with the exception of “Pink Cadillac” “Firefox”  “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” and “Bird”  And guess what?  The first three of those came in the mail today from Netflix.   And “Bird” is still on order.   I have been in 7th heaven! 

Prior to a month and a half ago, I owned exactly two Clint Eastwood movies, “Bridges of Madison County” and “Mystic River.”   I’ve slightly added to my collection.  ;D
I now own 21 of his movies…with at least another 10 I intend to buy, and I also just bought The Directors and Clint Eastwood: Out of the Shadows.  Somebody was asking about these in another thread.  I liked both of them, but if I had to choose between the two I’d pick Out of the Shadows.  I’d give it 5 stars!! J  The Directors….4 stars. J  I also saw Eastwood After Hours, my son, Shaun really liked that, he loves Jazz, especially bebop. :) 

I also just finished reading Clint’s biography by Richard Schikel and would love to read other books about him.  So if anybody has any recommendations I’d really appreciate it.

I went to see “Million Dollar Baby” and I will own that dvd as soon as it is available.  I rarely watch the Oscars, but knowing MDB was nominated, I made an exception.  :)  I was so excited when they read his name for best director I was jumping up and down.  I loved his speech and was touched…if not a bit surprised to see his mom there.   I am also thankful he has her genes!  I hope he is around for years and years to come and he never stops ‘making pictures.’

Okay, I’ll shut up now…..did anybody read this far?  LOL

I'm pleased that you've joined the ranks of people of all ages who've discovered Mr Eastwood's class. O0  You'll be in good company here on this board. 

Bridges is one of my favourite's too - and there are several more like us. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/boardgrin.gif)

You sure did move, seeing all those movies so fast!  :o  You must need a breather to take it all in, no? ???  I'm going much slower - purposely rationing myself so I can savour the pleasure. 8)

Glad to have you aboard.  By the way, as you're into Bridges you might get a kick out of some old discussion threads, starting here:

Welcome Melody.  Another Bridges of Madison County Fan O0 O0     I, like you, really enjoy Clint's movies but you do have favourites and Bridges is mine too.   I quite agree I never thought I would like westerns but Clint's westerns are something else 8)

After seeing Million Dollar Baby I bought the book and I just couldn't put it down.   I never thought I would read a book about boxing either.   Being a Clint fan and joining in on this board you never know what you will discover about Clint and about yourself.   It is a great place to be. :D

I feel that this is very much a matter of taste.   You either love it or you don't.   Guys on the whole tend to not like it but there are a few who love it.  It is one of my favourtie movies, but then I love Tightrope and some people don't like that.  It is the different views that keep this board so alive.

Hum ... 'know what ? I think that's why it clicked  ;D

I was watching Bridges which was the first I ever bought and the only Eastwood I owned ... hadn't I watched it, I probably wouldn't be here today  8)
So I'll be eternally thankful he made this movie ... I'd have missed so much ...

Then I bought the Dirty Harry series .... and then ... well you know the rest  ;)

And today I own 40 of his movies.
It took me no more than 3 months to get them all ... and to see them all ... hell I had to make up for all these lost years  8)

”This is so good!”  “I never knew I liked Westerns!”

Right now I have 42 and there are two on their way from eBay so I guess we are pretty near all the ones we can get on DVD.    The really old black & white ones are a lot harder to find.    :)

Thanks there. Looks like a very interesting forum/site.
In fact I have been visiting and reading here now and then for about a year..then finally thought it would be time to register.

I have been a Clint Fan for many, many years. despite I am not too old. It might have to do with my father was very interested in Clint films and had kind of grown up with many the films (born in 1938)..and passed that over to me  8)
Also, a bit strange but funny, my father ( passed away some years ago ), he really looked amazingly like Clint himself of nature.
Tall, slim, the hair style both as young and later when older, the cheek beard, the hand and fingers, way of walking etc., Even glasses far down on the nose like Clint now in MDB,hehe.

Well, a nice place to meet this forum.

Cheers

Well my name is Mithveaen from Mexico and I've been a Clint Eastwood fan since I'm a teenager, and that's a lot of time LOL!!

I don't want to say my age but I saw some of the last Dirty Harry and Firefox on theather. My Mom loved The Good the Bad and The Ugly, it was one of her favorite films. I don't have a collection of his movies, but everytime I turn on the TV and there is a Clint movie, no matter how many times I've seen it, I see it again

(For the record, today I saw White Hunter Black Heart and
Heartbreak Ridge)

I admire him and love him a lot as an actor and director. I can't tell a favorite film, but definetly Blondie and Mr. Callaghan have a special spot in my heart.

I haven't seen Million Dollar Baby yet, (with 2 jobs I don't have time) but I hope I can see it tomorrow.

How/why did I become a Clint fan? Let's see...I think it was "Honky Tonk Man" that did it for me back in the early 80's.  That film just had so much heart and soul that I couldn't turn away. That was the first time I started thinking of Eastwood as something more than just a gunfighter.

After "Honkytonk", I had to go back and look at "Play Misty for Me", "The Outlaw Josey Wales" and even "Dirty Harry" with new eyes.  Back then (mid 80's or so) I discovered that Clint's movies often have deeper meaning in them than what I, or critics at the time, had been giving them.

It is only now ("Unforgiven", "Mystic River" & "Million Dollar Baby") that the critics are realizing what I have known for about 20 years.

Which leads me to this website. I have been checking the website regularly for a couple years now. It is only now that I decided to join. Its great to hear from other people who feel the same way I do: that Eastwood has contributed so much to film, music and culture.

Besides, I need an Eastwood outlet. My wife gives grief because I have to watch either "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly" or "Pale Rider" at least once a week.   O0

Welcome to the board, Little Bill.

We have another member who goes by "little_bill" here. He's been a member a few years. To avoid confusion, you should probably change your user name. You can do this by going into your profile (through the link at the top of the board). On the left, you'll see a link that says "Account Related Settings". The first field is where you can enter a different name that will be displayed with your posts. You'll need to enter your current password on the bottom to make the changes to your profile. Then click on the "change profile" button.

Sorry to make you do all that on your first day on the board, but if you're going to continue posting here regularly, we don't want to get you mixed up with our other member. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/boardsmile.gif)

Hope you enjoy the board and we hope to see more of your posts soon.

Yes this board is so addictive that I don't even watch another site !
In the past, I was alone in front of my TV :'(  to see Clint's movies, alone in the theatres to cry with Francesca, to dream with Melanie (Meggan) ... well, I was misunderstood ! ;D

Now, my husband, my 3 daughters choose themselves which Clint "we are going to see tonight" !
Welcome all, enjoy this board as much as I do !

Should have figured that "little bill" would have already been taken. I don't really have an internet moniker. I also don't want to keep guessing at which names are taken and which are not.

I usually go for bad guy names.  Any suggestions? I mean, besides Scorpio (which I imagine has already been taken too) or Evelyn (I don't really fit the part).

Any help from the moderators or others would be appreciated.

Post by: Matt on April 29, 2005, 03:30:54 PM
I just checked the member list, and surprisingly... we don't have an "Indio" yet.

"Sentenza" has been taken, but that member signed up almost two years ago and has NEVER posted. I wish if someone was going to take a great name like that, they'd at least use it. Since you're a big GBU fan, I don't think it would be a problem using "Sentenza". If the person who signed up with it decides to actually post, I'd have no problem telling him to change his name if you've been using it regularly.  (We already have an active "Angel Eyes" member, so that's out.)

Hello G.A./Gant/Chessie.

G.A. glad to meet you and looking forward to reading many of your postings. I have read many since joining and find them interesting and very informative.

Gant, I absolutely loved Firefox. It was the first (if I recall correctly) Clint Eastwood movie I watched in a theater. IF not this one, then I think it was Escape From Alcatraz. Anyway, I thought Firefox was one of his most excellent films and still do. The thematic music was very well done as well. I don't know if by chance you read another posting I made that was something to do with sharing things we have of Clint or not but, in that post I mentioned I have part of a Lobby Card set to Firefox and 2 8x10 photos of Clint in Dirty Harry and Every Which Way But Loose. Also, I have a reproduction of one of his Were Eagle's Dare lobby cards. (Try finding an original)

Chessie, Thank you very much and I am very glad to be here. I like the idea of dividing my online time between The Duke and Clint Eastwood.

Best regards, M.Gant aka C.E.

Hi symphony  :)  Welcome to the board.

I'm not sure what you want to know, but if you browse around you'll get an idea of our community, and will see some great threads about Eastwood films.

Your English seems pretty good to me. O0  You are not our only member from France - you're countrymen appreciate Eastwood! 8)

There are quite a few people here who share your liking of The Bridges of Madison County.  You might like to start by having a look at some threads about that film.  There is a general Bridges thread HERE (http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=3513.0)  and a detailed discussion of many threads beginning at the bottom of THIS (http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?board=16.460) page.  That discussion is locked now, but we'd love to hear any thoughts you have about the movie, and you can post them in the first thread I linked to above.

I hope to have interesting exchanges with you.

If you stick around, you certainly will. O0 

(This thread isn't really in the correct place - perhaps it should be merged with the introductions thread?)

I also admire him very much as a director, he´s one of the few remaining 'old school' directors more concerned with content than style although he has both. This site looks great and has about all the information on Clint and his films one could hope for! I´m sure I´ll enjoy my stay and start posting as soon as possible.  :)

Hello, my "name" is Mistletoe and I live in the USA. I became a fan of Clint Eastwoods a couple of years after I married my husband...LOL.    ;D   I suppose he initiated my interest more. I found this site by searching Google in hopes of getting an autographed photo for my husbands birthday this year. It is one of those "milestone" birthdays and I wanted to do something different for him. I clicked on this site and thought it would be fun to join in.

Hi to all fellow CE fans. As much as I enjoy the "Dirty Harry" films, my favorites are "Eiger Sanction" and "Play Misty for Me." Years ago, I stopped in at the "Hog's Breath," and found I just missed Clint by 5 minutes; food was still good, though. If Mr. Allison is out there; how are you, Darren? I'm sorry I lost touch with you. I still have that great "Dirty Harry" compilation you put together for me. By the way, I still have that LP we talked about.  Hope to hear from you. Take care, all.

Mistletoe, if you're still looking for an autographed photo, have a look at some examples in threads in the Collectors' Corner section of this site.  There is some good advice in there, and help recognising the most obvious fakes (there are a lot out there!).  Good luck. O0

Hi,

Thought it was about time i introduced myself!  I have been viewing the website/board for about a year and a half now and enjoy it very much.  My name is Carl and i am 30 yrs old from staffordshire in the UK.  I have been a clint fan for many years and got into him because my dad used to watch the movies and was once told he looked like him! Looking forward to posting more soon and meeting lots more fans of the man!

May as well introduce myself, I'm Rob from Canada.  I'm 34 and an obsessive Clint fan, ever since I saw Outlaw Josey Wales on television when I was about 13 or so.  I've seen every Clint movie since Pale Rider on the day they are released in cinemas, but somehow it took me three months to finally see MDB!!

At any rate, I'm more of a Clint western fan, but I love all his work, and Unforgiven is my favourite film of all time.  My second is an English film called Withnail & I, and my third is a toss up between Josey Wales and GBU.

Nice to meet you all and I hope to become a regular contributor to the community.

Note:  Just so you know how pathetic I am, I quit smoking cigarettes years ago because I took up smoking cigarillos.

So thanks to Clint for getting me to dump ciggies!!
Title: Re: The Official MEMBER INTRODUCTIONS Thread
Post by: Lin Sunderland on June 24, 2005, 11:20:09 AM
Welcome Clint_Rules.  Now all we have to do is get you off the cigarillos because I am sure you know Clint doesn't smoke outside of his movies ;D ;D ;D.     Please do stay and enjoy your self on the board.

Hey guys, you got yourself a new n00b.

I have been a Clint Eastwood fan all my life. It also makes me happy that I can look up to a movie star knowing they have the same political beliefs as me. Ever since I watched Escape from Alcatraz, I have been hooked. Dirty Harry was an amazing movie and have grown up wanting to be a cop  ;D

I am also a Charles Bronson fan. I hope I don't get much shrapnel from that  :-[ :-[

Hi,

I used to be a member here a few years ago. I couldn't log-in using my old password so I had to re-register.

I left to persue other interests, building my Nancy Sinatra website http://www.movinwithnancy.fsnet.co.uk/
It's been a busy past few years building the site. I met Nancy last year backstage at the Royal Festival Hall in London.  ;)

I started a Clint Eastwood site about 6 years ago http://www.clinteastwooddomain.fsnet.co.uk but It got too much running two websites and my Clint site had to take a back seat for awhile.

It's good to be back, nice to see some old faces, KC, Philo, Matt....

Dear Clint,
                 I was adopted when I was born and found my natural Mother in 1987.  I just met her ex-brother-in-law that told me that my natural father got his nick name, "Rowdy" because he looked like you in the Raw Hide series.  I haven't found my natural father yet, but still looking.  I have always been told that I am beautiful but I never dreamed that my natural father looked like you.  That means my father is a handsome man.  I have watched your movies all of my life.  I was born in 1964 and I am 40 now.  I just rented your Million Dollar Baby and it is always a pleasure watching you on screen but I must say the ending shocked me.  I understand that in boxing that type of injury is very possible and your reaction to it was honorable.  Also, I lived in Burney Falls, CA in 1995 and heard that we lived close to your daughters home.  I guess it really is a small world.  Good luck with your movie and I hope that you will have more in the future.          Sincerely, Tamarah Lee

Hello everyone,

I just joined a couple of days ago.  I am a long term Eastwood fan but didn't really fully appreciate the degree of his artistry until after I saw million dollar baby.  I signed up here because this board seems to offer quite a bit more intelligent discussion of the subject than what can be found on the imdb.

Anyway, I'm glad to be here.

Hi, I am Kahuna.  I am 52 and have been an Eastwood fan since I was a little girl.  My favorite movie is "Play Misty For Me".  I have always loved his movies and have watched most of them over and over.  My friend and I both have a picture of him on our screen saver at work.  He is truly one of the greats!!!!  When the question arises at lunch, as it does sometimes, who is the sexiest actor of all time, they all know who me and her pick every time.  Although Sean Connery runs a close second, he never comes in ahead of Clint.  My Dad was a big Clint Eastwood.  I have never seen nor met him in person, but would love to one day.

Robert - no one here is in contact with Mr. Eastwood.  The only address we have for him is in the FAQ section of this website.

HERE (http://www.clinteastwood.net/sitefaq.html#faq7)

Clint Eastwood
C/O Malpaso Productions, Warner Bros.
4000 Warner Blvd,

If you have already sent letters and gotten no response, I'm not sure this address will help you.

Hi, I'm Dragon (a monniker I use in other places, but in different context - this "Dragon" might be a nod to that bloodless freak in The Eiger Sanction).

I'm here because I was unusually affected by The Bridges of Madison County, though I've been a Clint fan as far back as I can recall. I like his atypical work: Beguiled, Play Misty for Me, and now, "Bridges". Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan are consummate actors, but Clint and Meryl were fantastic. Finally, a movie for my lady and me with my favorite male lead.

I just wish I could turn back the clock twenty years and have Mr. Eastwood around that much longer.

Well, that's why I'm here...

Just a quick "thank you" to all. Watching "Bridges" again recently, I was struck by the beauty of the film score. My girlfriend plays a little piano and I'm hoping to find the music.

There's a part of the movie where Francesca is looking back up the driveway and her husband and kids are arriving. You hear the familiar notes on the piano, only this time it sounds like they're coming through a pipe; it's an interesting effect. Anyone else notice that?

Again, thanks and take care, Dragon

I'm 18 year old girl from Finland. I've never written here before, but now I got the courage to come and say hello to you all.  :) I've been a fan of Clint's almost all my life, and I'm not the only one in my family. My father has been a fan for over 30 years.  8) :o

I really can't say, what my favourite (Clint-)movie is, there are just too many which are brilliant.  O0  But once at school I wrote a film review about "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" and I got almost the best grade you can get from it.  8) That was cool.  ;)

Hello everyone,
                          I'm new to the board and I'm from Australia.  I have loved Clint Eastwood movies since I was a kid growing up in the eighties.  My Dad used to have a lot  of Clint's movies on tape, and now I,m gradually collecting them all on DVD.  My favourite would definitely have to be Every Which Way But Loose.  I reckon that would be the life, just driving around, drinking beer, and just sort of drifting.  Clint is the best. 8)

Greetings to everyone from Boston.  I have always been a huge fan ever since my Father and I watched Dirty Harry when I was a kid.  Since then we've seen all of Clint's movies together.  I recently got into watching them all (Westerns included) over again and it really is reassuring that he's still in the business.  I hope he's planning on acting some more, but it looks like he'll be in the director's chair for a while, which is a great place for him too!  Best regards.

P.S. Is it just me, or is there NOBODY in the business who even comes close to him?  They don't make them like they used to...

Welcome to the board, will! This is the best place to discuss Eastwood's film career and we all look forward to seeing you around here. As for your question of how to "boost up my rating" well, I'll quote one of our best members:

As your number of posts increase you go from one level to another.  However, the quality of your posts is more important than the number of posts you have.  Some of our major contributors have very few posts.  Anyone who posts just to raise the number of posts they have runs the risk of having frivolous posts deleted by the moderators.  It's important to earn your level of membership based on the informative information in yours posts.

We welcome you as a member and look forward to any valuable information that you care to share with us.

Hello. I am also new here but the things I have seen makes me want to get old here among you other Clint fans. 27 years old, 178 cm and 80 kg (pure muscle ::))
From Finland but belong to the Swedish speaking minority so I do not quite master the Finnish laungage.
I have allways been addicted to western films, books, guns and the hole "thing". I´am married to a lovely greeneyed brunett for the third year now and she´s pregnant with a boy. We have almost decided to name the boy Clint ;). I also hunt a lot and there for shoot some and do a leymans gunsmithing (not sure if that the way to say it). Cars has a small piece of my heart as well, I
own a 1985 Chevrolet Camaro 2,8 l, a 1984 Toyota Landcruiser HJ 60 and two Opel. Book collector ( by author, only second hand) 320 titles hardcover, 140 pocket of these 120 western pockets.

Post by: crowkiller on December 21, 2005, 12:18:58 PM
Ooups sorry, forgot to write the most important. I like
Clint´s western films the most out off all western films becouse he´s simply the best, hard as they come but still gentle and polite. The rough low voice and the steel look makes even the badest bandit think twice. He seems to me be the greatest actor in the roles off tough men in the time where you had to get tough or die trying (at least if lived off your guns).

I joined here last summer and got into the Leone board from links on this site and have become rather attached to that board. But today I thought I'd come back and check it out.

I think I'll stick around, if things go as well for me here as they did at the Leone board, I can't wait.

The main reason for me posting is I'd like to ask for your patience with me as I try to learn my way around different sections of the board. It's a little more complicated over here than over there.

As this is my first post here, hello to you all. I've been a fan of Clint ever since I saw A FISTFULL OF DOLLARS on television at the tender age of eleven...and i was lucky enough to see FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE on a double bill with GOLDFINGER around the same time too...damn if those old Dublin revival houses weren't brilliant! Sadly, they've long since been turned into multi-storey car parks or apartments.  :'(

I found this place by accident after Googling Clint...it seems a great place to discuss the great man...

My fave Clint film? DIRTY HARRY! Sure, I love loads more but DIRTY HARRY is the cream at the top...I'd even venture it's my number one film of any genre.

I'm not very good at intros so I'll finish up here and I hope to talk to you guys and gals around the boards.  :)

Hi,
 I am a fan of Clint Eastwoods movies.
But long before I new Clint as a actor we met in Torrence California when I was working for a Temp job service in 1978.
I was called to a job where I would be counting stock for a incorporation for a few days work.
When I arrived I was introduced to my co worker by the supervisor. (Clint)
At lunch break I invited Clint to have his lunch in my Station Wagon.
As we both worked side by side and where getting along very good.
I remember Clint offering to help me if I could not lift some of the heavy boxes.
As the supervisor told me I would not be able to have the job if I could not lift heavy items.
Clint covered for me and offered to lift the heavy boxes and the Supervisor never found out :-)
During lunch break Clint told me he had been in many movies in the past.
And was in between movies and needed to build up his muscles and earn a little cash at the same time.
I offered to pick Clint up for work and bring him home as Clint did not have a car at that time and we where both going to the same place to work.
Over the weeks that followed Clint and I remained friends.
This was back in 1978 while Clint was waiting for his next movie to begin filming.
I use to visit Clint at the temp place he was living and Clint introduced me to his mother.
Clint use to stop by my house and visit and we became very good friends.
One day I went to visit Clint and the trailer home was gone and I realized Clint had moved on.
I remember I fealt such so sad as now I had lost my friend!   :(
The next day I was in front of my house sitting in my station wagon just around lunch time.
I saw a red Convertable brand new 1978 Cadillac driving down the street I lived on.
The Red Convertible Cadillac stopped in front of my house and Clint stepped out.
In the car where many of the girls from the studio :-)
I will never forget that day as Clint explained someday I would look back on the fact we had been friends and it would be something special for me to look back on.
I new Clint was going to be in this Movie.
Every which way but loose!
But I still did not realize Clint was a famous Movie Star.
Clint invited me to come to the studio to take a screen test.
I still remember explaining to Clint you really had to know somebody to get into the movies and join the union.
Clint invited me still to come to the studio and take a screen test.
Clint said who knows I may meet a Super Star who would speak for me and help me out :-))  ???
Clint had to leave as he was on his lunch break filming Every which way but loose.
I did not want to loose contact with Clint.
You see I had lost my father in the fall of 1977 and in January 1978 I decided to leave my home and travel to california 3000 miles away.
When I arrived my Aunt took me in and then I was invited to move in with my cousin where I was living when I met Clint.
I was still not over the loss of my father.
And now I realized I was 3000 miles away from my home and family and now I still missed my father as much as I ever did back home added now with the loss of all my friends back home.
I found being in California was a very lonely place to be and I was not happy inside at all.
Making a buddy with Clint I began to look up to Clint.
Clint even helped me when my car broke down as Clint sent me to a garage that worked for the studio and they repaired my fly wheel and charged me something like 35.00 dollars for the entire job parts included :-)
Not a bad price considering they had to remove the transmition to replace a fly wheel :-)
And Clint once referd to me as being his kid brother.
After work Clint had to study his lines so was not able to go out for burgers and fun times after work like the other guys did I worked with.
So after a week when our work ended a few days went by and i did not visit Clint as I was not sure he wanted to have me around as he was so busy.
But then Clint would walk to my house and visit so I realized I was not being a pain to try to stay in contact as if I had Clint would not have came back to visit.
I guess I just did not realize how famous Clint was and did not understand why Clint could not go out for a burger with me in public.
So after all the times I had asked Clint to go have a fun time for himself.
It meant a lot to me when Clint offered to come back inbetween filming and take me out for a fun time.
Had I known as Clint was leaving and  I would loose Contact I would have stood there crying.
I had lost my dad and I was 3000 miles from home.
And now I was looseing my only friend.
And did not know it.
I would have gone to the studio for the screen test but to my knowledge the studio where I would need to take the screen test was 75 miles away and I was in between work and was not able to travel that far without gas.
Clint promiced he would return when he finished filming in a couple weeks Clint said there would be a break from filming and he would come back then and show me a good time.
I asked Clint if I could come with him & or be in that movie right then!
Clint said no!
Explaining it was too late to consider me for that movie as filming had already started.
I remember asking Clint what would happen if when he came back to find me if I was not home or if I was working I would loose Contact with him.
I asked Clint for a phone number or address.
And I pushed this issue as I was afraid I would loose contact.
Clint said "just go to the studio"
I asked if I could visit Clint where he was staying on location at the studio.
Clint said yes! for me to go to the Studio where I could take a screen test and Clint said they would call him and Clint would come and get me at the studio.
I asked when would be best for me to go to the Studio and Clint said anytime I wanted to go and he would come and get me at the studio.
Again I asked if I could just go with him right then.
And Clint explained no as he was on his lunch break and had to go back to work filming.
I did not understand!
How I could go to the studio any day any time and Clint would come and get me.
But I could not go with him right then?  ;D
Clint explained they where filming on location and it was not possible for me to be there for that when locations changed from day to day and Clint never knew what time he would be finished filming etc.
I walked over and got a closer look at the Cadillac and was really looking forward to Clint coming back so we could go out for a fun night.
As up until then Clint had not had time to go out for a burger or anything .
I understood he did not want to be seen in public restaurants and my favorite at that time was Burger King.
A very crowded place to be when your trying not to be seen :-)
I watched Clint drive off and waved g bye and went back inside the house.
The next day due to curcumstances out of my control I had to move out of where I was staying.
Clint lost contact with me at that time.
My Cousins told me if Clint stopped by they would tell Clint where I was staying so he could find me!
I moved from California months later.
A couple years later I was at a drive in movie with my girl friend when I recognized Clint in Any which way you can.
That is when I realized Clint was a famous Movie star.
I knew Clint told me he would be in many upcoming Movies.
But I did not realize Clint was going to be the star in almost every scene  :D
I remember telling my Mom when I got home from the movies that night that I knew the starring actor Clint Eastwood.
I asked Mom if she thought I should try to contact Clint
Mom told me without a direct contact I would only be able to send a letter where many thousands of other fans would be trying to reach Clint.
Mom told me my letter may not ever reach Clint in a pile of thousands of letters.
I did not know about Malpaso productions.
I did not know Clint had his own office.  :'(  :-\ :-[ ??? ;D
Many years later speaking to my aunt she told me Clint did stop by and was told I was no longer living there.
I thought many times I should have tried to find the studio.
Not because Clint was famous.
But because Clint and I had became friends.
I will say Clint was not like the man he played in the movies.
Clint was more layed back and very easy to get along with.
I have tried to contact Clint as of the past years and have had no luck contacting him.
It would mean a lot to me to hear from Clint again.
The other day I watched The outlaw Josey Wales.
And it brought back memories.
I typed Clint Eastwood into a search engine and found this forum :-)
I am very sad to hear of Clint's mother passing.
I decided even thou we lost contact many years ago.
I will always consider Clint a friend.
And wanted to say how deeply sorry I am for Clint and his family with the loss of his mother.
Clint is one of the greatest people I have ever had the pleasure to not only meet but walk with as a friend.
And looking back on this really is very special to me.
Hearing from Clint would really make my day.
Thanks for listening.

Thanks for the welcome!  O0
I feel very fortunate to have had a chance to meet Clint and get to know him for himself.
To watch the movies is great and very entertaining.
but to know the real Clint is very fortunate indeed.
I remember one day Clint and I had worked several hours unloading a truck.
After the days work the owner of the company came over with a ice cold six pack of beer.
In tribute to Clint :-)
I was only 20 and looked even younger for my age.
So the owner of the company was not going to give me a beer :-(
Clint spoke up and told the guy it was ok I was his kid brother.
That was so cool.
And I tell ya most places I worked the job did not end with ice cold beer from the boss lol.
So that was a real nice time to think back on.
I really was looking forward to taking the screen test and working with Clint on future movies if I qualified.
And Clint had promiced me a nice day out when he got his first break from making the movie.
So its really very sad for me to think back and realize our ships passed and we never met again.
When I had to move on my own back then I just got stuck working daily and trying to pay the bills etc....
I for sure will enjoy visits to this forum and maybe some day Clint will happen on by and read this and reply :-)

Hi! :) I'm a newbie... Just a recent Eastwood fan, really. I watched GBU and immediately fell in love. I've since watched the other two spaghetti westerns of the Trilogy, High Plains Drifter, Pale Rider, Dirty Harry, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Escape from Alcatraz and Unforgiven. All great films. I can't believe I didn't get into him sooner!

Title: Re: The Official MEMBER INTRODUCTIONS Thread
Post by: Matt on March 27, 2006, 07:43:38 AM
Blondie's Gal, all the mods have a "problem" with quotes being posted without sources. I haven't been around the board for a few weeks, but I did check in last night and was posting the exact response to you in the "Eastwood and Politics" thread that KC posted. Her post beat mine so I deleted mine. It's not personal, so don't make it personal. Just follow the Community Standards.  :)

If you have more to say about this, take it up off the board with KC, Brendan or myself. That's another one of the rules you'll see in the Community Standards. If you haven't already, read through them. They help keep our board one of the best on the internet. 
Title: Re: The Official MEMBER INTRODUCTIONS Thread
Post by: nightwolf05 on March 27, 2006, 12:38:27 PM
Hi Blondie's Gal,
 What Matt said is correct.
When you join a forum it takes a few weeks to get use to the rules of any community.
Please dont  be offended and leave.
We are lucky to have Mods who take the time to keep this forum in order.
And at the same time teach newbies in a kind manner how to post on the board following the guidelines of the board.
That is nothing personal against you.
And it is true most times if you are upset about something regarding a mod.
Its best to handle it in a PM.
Sometimes other members can get upset over a misunderstanding.
By the time its all worked out several new members may have already left the community.
I have enjoyed your topics and I know others have too.
So please stay and don't feel picked on if a mod corrects you.
Lets look forward to learning the rules of the board together.
I will look forward to many more posts from you :-)

Hi!  RawHideBaby here!!!!  :) My Father is John Cole.
He was an Actor / StuntMan on Rawhide.
I never knew my Father. My mother divorced him when I was just a baby..and he passed away when I was 6yrs old. I never got a chance to meet him but have often longed to know the man he was. As a child I always wanted to meet Clint Eastwood so he could tell me all about my Dad.
I have an older sister by my father, who I finally met in 1989... And found out in 1996 that we also have a brother. Is that some Oprah stuff or what!?  ;)
I've been told my Father was a real ladies man. They swooned over him and every one that ever met him, wanted him. So we have to wonder if there are more of us running amuck. ( laughs )

I have several pictures of my Dad . Most are casual home photos when he was married to my mother..but I also have a few character pictures from episodes of Rawhide ( could also be from Bonanza or 26 Men ..... I'm just really not certain of that now ).
I also have a few pictures from a Golf Tourney ( dated 1959 ) of my Dad and a young Clint...( couple of other men that I believe to be Directors or Producers....once again thats info I'm not sure of ).
One of the pictures has been noted & signed, to my Dad,  by Clint and the other two men.
Several years ago someone brought the autographs to my full attention..saying "  Do you realize you have an autographed picture of Clint Eastwood that is probably worth some money to someone? "
All I could say was that I had never really gave it any thought truthfully.... to me, it has always been simply a symbol of my Daddy, no one else in the picture ever really mattered...but the need to know my Father always has.  I'm always proud to show off Clint too  O0 tho he is usually the first person people notice.  ;)
I recently found some info about my Dad in the IMDB.com database.( lots of EastWood info there also) It was finally nice to see my Fathers accomplishments and name somewhere besides a death certificate. Thanks for listening .  And Great Site!!! O0

Nice story.  Good luck learning more about your dad, it's so important.  My dad never knew who his dad was - just that he was American - and it does make you wonder.  It's great that you have those photos.  Definitely something to treasure for its sentimental value. 8)

Hi, Sanctiongirl, and welcome to the board. This is an entirely fan-based board and as far as we know Mr. Eastwood has never posted here. However, his people are aware of it, and we believe they may check in from time to time.

You may be especially interested in our discussion of The Eiger Sanction, which took place a couple of years ago. (I mentioned it in the currently active "Eiger Sanction" thread.)

The topics start at the bottom of page 10 in the Previous Film Discussions forum, here ...

Hi,

My name is Jason, I've been a member for a while. Clint is my all time hero and I finally managed to meet him in Carmel on May1st. He kindly let me have a picture taken with him. His was very soft spoken but I will never forget his piercing eyes.

I'd post the picture but not sure where to put it

Regards

Jason.

I am a Veteran Marine who Googled Mr.Eastwood to see what was going on with "Flags of our Fathers"
    I am delighted He has such a nice web page and has indeed begun production of his next(I'm sure) masterpiece.
    To tell the truth,I wanted to be an extra in this production so I could go to Iwo Jima,Japan.I am still a Marine in my heart,and this fondest wish would eclipse my entire life.
     I subscribe to Military.Com where all the skinny and scoop thats worth printing and reading can be found about our Military.
     After watching "Billion Dollar Baby" and especially,"Unforgiven";I always watch what Mr.Eastwood is up to.He is a master of the Camera and the Film Art.
      I will drop in from time to time,if there are any fellow Jarheads out there who want to correspond,I will answer all.
      I have a few ideas for Movies that I will start threads on from time to time,I hope this Forum finds them as intiguing as I do.
      Thanks for allowing me to be here Mr.Eastwood,even though you aren't a US Marine,you honor us by telling this magnificent story of Marine Corp sacrifice. SEMPER FI! Mr.Eastwood! O0

I just recently retired in Calgary and have been watching Clint since his Rowdy Yates days. As a fairly knowledgeable western history buff, Id salute him for his honesty and  respect for what a lot of those guys were like back then. But I believe that his other non-western works deserve equal applause, just as enthusiastic. The fact is he's given all of his films both honesty and respect and you can't ask more than that of an actor, director,producer or writer. Happy Birthday Mr. Eastwood

As one of Clint Eastwood's many fans all over the globe i must say that i've enjoyed each and everyone of Mr. Eastwood's films, but my favorite movie of Clint's has to be "The Bridges of Madison County", this film proved to me that Clint Eastwood really stretched his muscles as well as his acting ability range in the realm of drama, something i had been waiting for decades to see come out in Clint's human side as a performer and i thoroughly enjoyed seeing Clint cry real tears of sorrow after realizing he must release Francesca Johnson and return to his life as a bachelor
Very convincing and amazing to watch Clint open himself up to a compassionate and romantic role after playing so many he-man characters for decades

Hey, nice to have found this site. I just happened to be googling quotes, since I always use Clint's quotes in my fantasy sports message boards.
I even name my leagues after each of his movie titles.
So here I am, and if I really had to narrow it down when I became a Clint Eastwood fan, it would have to be when I was watching the Escape from Alcatraz movie. After that, I re watched all of his older stuff, and made sure to watch any of the new stuff he came out with since. There is no better actor, director, and celebrity person in my mind, and its good to have a whole forum directed towards him and his career.
You haven't heard the last of me, because between the MG, beer, Clint forums, I am in heaven!

Hey!
I've been caught up in checking out all the different topics on this board that I never checked in on this one. Guess I should've  done that  first off.
Actually  I've been reading this board  off and on for quite some time as a "guest."  Should've joined sooner; no particular reason why I didn't.
     Been  a Clint fan for goin' on three decades now ( my girlfriend in high school said I was "Clint Obsessed").  Have a lot of friends from those days that are big fans as well.  A Clint movie (especially a western) was a BIG get together night for the guys ( it drove our girlfriends nuts) and that was before cable and videos when you had to wait for the ABC movie of the week to show one. In fact I stumbled on this website looking for Clint ecards to send to my friends for their birthdays.
     Well I said on another thread that I'd try not to be so long winded so I'll stop here .  This board is fascinating and very enjoyable. Hope I can do it justice.

I believe it was Magnum force, then Thunderbolt and Lightfoot at 4 , Josey Wales at 6, The Enforcer at 6, then the Gauntlet at 7. I know the first Movie my dad took me to see was also when I was three, was Live and Let Die.  I still remember the awesome boat scenes from that age.

I started going to the movies by myself when I was 8 and seeing my first movie on my own Every which way but loose, Grease, The Buddy Holly story.

Hello and welcome, ayhamhasan! I've answered your question in a Private Message, but I'll repeat it here:

We have only a mailing address for Mr. Eastwood and it is:

    Clint Eastwood
    C/O Malpaso Productions, Warner Bros.
    4000 Warner Blvd,
    Burbank CA, 91505

He gets a lot of mail from his fans, so we have no guarantee he will respond, but you are welcome to try!  :)

Hi I'm Theo. Wow, these forums are very detailed and ambitiious. I have a strong opinion about the new films, Flags of our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima. I think these are amazing movies about how our perception of things tends to differ from reality. I think Mystic River and Million Dollar Baby are great also, and I've always been a fan of Dirty Harry (1), The Outlaw Josey Wales, and Unforgiven. As great as Clint has always been, he's really turned into a national treasure in the last five years. I've written a review of the film Letters from Iwo Jima on my website, which is in my signature. I want to invite Clint Eastwood fans to check it out, but I want to respect the integrity of a forum dedicated to his work. Hope it doesn't seem rude. It's just a little suarez up the street, but the for Clint Eastwood fans, the real party is here.

Hi, Theo, and welcome. I too liked your review a lot, and in fact, I'd like to post the link to it in our Reviews thread for the film. It's as perceptive (to use your word) as anything I've seen in the print media.

I'll also post the direct link to it here: http://www.heyallright.com/MoviereviewsLettersfromIwoJima.html

Welcome, Theo. :)  I haven't read all your review because I haven't seen the film yet, and didn't want to see a spoiler, but it looks good, and it's always great to have people write reviews like this on the board. :)  Maybe you'll share some thoughts on other Eastwood movies while you're here? 8)

Dear all: wow, I'm honored. AmericanBeauty, KC and Lilly, thank you for your feedback and thank you for checking out my review. And thank you for the link. Absolutely, please post a link to the film review thread on your site. Are there discussion forums for Mystic River and Josey Wales? I'm sure there are but I couldn't find them. This site is vast. I saw extensive discussions of Tightrope and Escape from Alctraz. Anyway, thanks for the warm welcome.
Title: Re: The Official MEMBER INTRODUCTIONS Thread
Post by: KC on February 17, 2007, 10:53:42 AM
Hi again, Theo: we've had formal film discussions on a lot of Eastwood's films, but not yet on the two you mentioned. The discussions have kind of slacked off recently, so it would be great if we could revive them again.

Both Mystic River and The Outlaw Josey Wales have been discussed extensively outside of the "Organized Film Discussions" forums. To find some of the discussions, you might click on "Search" and then go to "Advanced Search" and check "Search in Topic Subjects only." Then click the plus next to "Choose a board to search in, or search all," and select just "Eastwood News" (for Mystic River, which was news here a few years ago), "General Discussion," "Questions & Answers" and (for Josey Wales) "Clint Eastwood Westerns." Type in your search terms, and look over the threads that come up. Feel free to add your own comments to any of them!

I love all of Clint's movies.. and prefer him to most other 'big stars'.  I'd love to interview him someday on my show.. find out what kind of music he listens to, etc.  What a star!  What a guy!

You can email me at [email protected] and say howdy.. especially if you are from this board!

Since we've gotten a lot of new members lately, I thought I'd start this thread for any of our new members, or even our existing members, to introduce themselves to the members of this forum. Let us know a bit about yourself and how you became a Clint fan. We'd also love to know how you found this site. Basically, tell us anything you'd like us to know about you! We also have a "Clint Eastwood Web Board Member Map" where you can add your location and see where some of the other Clint Eastwood fans who are board members here live. You can check that map out HERE (http://www.frappr.com/clinteastwoodwebboardmembermap10).

We'll be merging all threads where members introduce themselves into this one, so keep checking back here to see who our newest members are.

Welcome to all our newest members. We hope you like it here. :)

Welcome to the Board, kimmel! This is the closest thing to an official site there is, though it's all done by his fans, starting with Cal Anderson, the Webmaster, who put it all together and keeps it going for all of us to enjoy.

There is a biography (and a lot of other great stuff) on the other part of the site. The biography is from notes by Richard Schickel (Clint's "official" biographer) that originally appeared with Starwave's 1995 Eastwood CD-ROM.

http://www.clinteastwood.net/biography_1.html

There's also an "alternate" biography, here:

It's great to hear just how much Clints work is appreciated and enjoyed by so many people. The guy simply can't do any wrong for me. I'd pay to watch him at the cinema just to kick a stone up the street!!! :)

Hi All,

Just Yahoo'd after viewing True Crimes. A Clint Eastwood movie that somehow I had "missed" - sorry. I am from Awstralia, you know, downunder! Actually it is Australia, the land "down-under"!

I am, an absolute Clint Eastwood fan, a true "megastar" of modern cinema. Can't recall how many times I have watched his movies over & over. For all of you fans in North America, grew up on one Rowdy Yates in.....Rawhide!

How many "current day" real stars are there - I reckon Clint Eastwood and perhaps Harrison Ford top the list!

OK, I am sure that you can guess my age and my preferred film style/genre.

Pleased to be on-board, and I look forward to reading all the posts to this site and forum!

Cheers from Down-Under!

Hi All,

I am humbled by the (very) quick welcome from current members - thank you all individually and collectively!

What a great actor/director/producer...et al. There will probably only ever be one Mr. Clint Eastwood in my lifetime. A genius of the film genre!

I have had the pleasure of "shouting" an Anchor Steam beer or two for Mr. Jack Warden at R.J's in North Beverly Drive on one occasion and on another occasion had dinner with Mr. Robert Ellenstein who played the President of the Federation in Star Trek 1V - The Voyage Home. Not bad for an Aussie on business in LA!

Just wish that I had visited the Hog's Breath in Carmel...Oh well, another time.

Sincerely, thank you all again and I hope that I can have  a positive contribution to this forum!

Cheers All.

Hello Everybody.
I'm a new member to the Forum, but a long time huge fan.  I am from the Denver Colorado area, but I haven't yet run into Tank Murdock.   :D
When I set up this profile, I figured my email address is already named after Philo, so I tried to choose something new and original.
What an inspiration Clint has been in my life.  When I attempt to think back about my decision to be a Marine, I can only figure it had to be because of Gunny Highway.
Anyway, don't wanna make this too long, so does anyone know whether there is a plan to have Flags & Letters in a DVD set together?  I was kinda waiting for a special set to come out, but I'm also anxious to see Flags again asap.
Thanks.   ;)

Greetings from Scotland, everyone! (thus the 'Highland'...)  - well I thought it was good!

I stumbled upon this site, when looking for a download of the theme tune to 'For A Few Dollars More', and am very impressed.

I've always been a Clint fan for as far back as I can remember - my Dad always tuned in  when one of his films (especially Westerns) were on T.V.

I also remember kind of identifying with him because we shared the same birthday (May 31st) - as if you didn't know..

The Wild West just seemed very exotic when you are sitting in a house in Glasgow, and there was a great wit with the early westerns that kind of appealed.

I'm looking forwars to expanding my knowledge of the great man.

Cheers for now

Hell-o. I`m a ravenous youngster from Norway. I`ve always been into Clints merciless behaviour, but it got serious around christmas-time when a friend brought with him a Fistful of dollars dvd. After that, I`ve been watching Clint movies every week (since it`s always a Clint-movie on Canal +. Hail!) and purchasing them slowly. I have to say that the essesial Clint-movie is Dirty Harry and it is also my absolute favorite Clint movie.

Great site btw!

Hello to all of you! I recently found out about this forum being a long time member of the Sergio Leone Forums. One of the member's there mentioned this forum and being a huge Clint Eastwood fan it was only fitting to join here as well.

I've been a Clint Eastwood fan since I was a little kid. My father is a huge fan so I guess it rubbed off on me at an early age. I look forward to talking about Clint, his films, and films in general with all of you! I just wish I found this forum a lot sooner. Oh well, better late than ever!

Anyway, I'm happy to be here. Talk to you all soon. :)

So how is everyone doing? I'm very glad I discovered this forum and I look forward to meeting all Eastwood fans and movie buffs here and discussing his impressive career. My name is John and I've been a fan of movies for at least five years. I have a vast DVD collection of films spanning from at least the 30's to the present. From the original 1932 Scarface (I have the remake as well) to the Dirty Harry films, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro films and more.

My favorite directors (for now) are Martin Scorsese and of course Mr. Eastwood. See you all around on the forums  :)

Your guess would be on the mark. I absolutely love that film. I remember when it first came out the week before it opened there was a sneak preview. Lilly I loved the choice of Meryl and the way he humanized Robert. The book had him walking on water.   Now don't laugh but it was a love story that someone older could relate too. It was done beautifully and the score..What else can I say..

Yes, indeed. It's a wonderful film and so beautifully crafted by Clint Eastwood. I love it because many of us can relate to it in many different ways. I love stories like that which are so true to life.

And let's not forget; this film would not have worked if it were not for the amazing acting of Clint Eastwood and especially Meryl Streep who gave one of the best performances of her career. She acted brilliantly. When she was supposed to be shy, she appeared to be shy, when she was relaxed and reserved and laughing, you can tell she was finally warmed up to the character of Robert Kinkaid. She sold her character right down to the bone. I believe this is arguably Meryl's finest work.

Hola!

New to this forum, but it looks good!!

Not sure if this is the right place to put this thread but we are now living in Tabernas in Almeria where our friend Clint filmed some of his westerns.  We wanted to set up a holiday horse riding business here giving people the opportunity to ride through some of the scenery that made some of the westerns so special.

We also did it for the love of the horses and the way of life here.  Very laid back and always sunshine!!!

Feel free to look at our site and hope to hear comments from other people.  (Including the man himself!).

Hasta pronto!!!!

Hi everybody,

This is my first mail, I'm a huge fan of Clint Eastwood since the ' Rawhide ' years, and I'm a fan of this web site since
when I found 2 years ago, on the first day when I began the internet.
It was a great surpraise and  joy to find this site. ' You made my day!' ' I felt lucky!'
There was a lot of information and  I listened to the ' Rawhide ' of Frankie Laine many times. I enjoy very much.

I was surprised to find this forum too. Because you have a lot of conversations, exchanges and answers.
I can find many answers of my questions about Old Clint.
You are very nice , formidable . This site is great , N.1 in world!

I liked write here many times but my por English did not let do it.  ( If I can write it in Japanese or French!? )
But today, I would like to vote for top ten films of Old Clint, for this, I thought that it's better to introduce here
befor voting.

Thanks Doug to gave me a chance to say hello everybody and ' A.RI.GA.TO.U ! '

Bonjour, Sylvie !

Nice to meet you too!  Thanks for a warm welcome.
You are not an unknown parson for me, because I looked you on TV last year when Old Clint went to Lyon!

Yes, and that is still a great feeling of happiness when I think of that "meeting" in Lyon, and that will always be !
I've been so lucky to be sat just behind him, I could listen to his voice, and saw him smile, move ... a perfect moment in my life ! :)

Hi, I'm a 19 years old boy writing from Sergio Leone's country (Italy), and I would like you to know it's a great honor for me to be writing here. I'm not a long-time Clint's fan, but I've come to appreciate him more and more recentely, and I've also started collecting his films on Dvd. I think it must be only 2 years since I got to "know" Clint Eastwood and appreciate his screen-persona...before that, he had never been on my "favorite actors" list. I grew up watching Arnold Schwarzenegger's movies and he is, alongside with Kevin Costner, my number one favorite actor. I know what you're thinking now:"why the hell does this guy come here if Clint's not his favorite actor?"...and my answer is:"because Clint's already up there with Arnold and Kevin" ;) :) :) :).
I'm also really proud to be Italian because Sergio was Italian too and I think he revolutioned filmmaking and helped to let the world know about a great actor and director: our dear Clint.

All Eastwood Fans! Good Evening O0! Nice to meet you!
I'm Japanese who's living in Japan, where's brithplace of Otaku Culture. But I'm interesting the Otaku Culture to nothing but Tifa Lockhart in Final Fantasy VII (This http://stars.ign.com/articles/875/875562p10.html ) , and I'm interesting the Rock Music and American Movie which is better than Game/Anime :P.

I'm the beginner of Eastwood fans, and I haven't watched the standard movie "Dirty Harry" and his westerns even now, I want to watch the film of Harry and western, but I've no money for DVDeeeeeee :'(!!!!!!

I was watched the movies, "Heartbreak Ridge", "Flags Of Our Fathers" and "Letters From Iwo-Jima", and I could be moved his magnanimous style, and I've got interested Clint Eastwood.

My favorite the exception of Eastwood films is...
Saving Private Ryan
Forrest Gump
Apollo13
Thin Red Line
Back To The Future Series
S.W.A.T
Downfall (Der Untergang)
Die-Hard
And the others...

Is this finished?

Please, look after me from this time, but I'm beginners of Eastwood Fans.

See you again, good-bye

Hi,
I am Ralph a fishing, boating, and surfing nut.  I grew up in Cocoa Beach, Florida.  We all thought Dirty Harry was the coolest of the cool.  Especially that scene, "I can't remember if it was five or six shots"  I recently hunted this site down because someone recommended I do it.  We are setting several new world records in a boat.  We will be the smallest power boat in the history of the world to cross the Atlantic.  We will be the first "Flats Boat to cross the Atlantic. We will use less fuel than any power boat to cross the Atlantic.

Someone suggested I try to Contact Clint Eastwood Productions.  They said Our Voyage was movie worthy.  I hope someone would help me find the right contacts.  The story can be seen at www.crosstheatlantic.com

http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=7289.msg124090#msg124090

Unfortunately, it's not very helpful, as I'm certain that Clint Eastwood isn't involved in making documentaries about projects like yours. But good luck, anyway!

Sgt. Tom 'Gunny' Highway here!

I'm a brand new member to these boards, a member here who goes by the name 'WeAllGotItCominKid' referred me
to this messageboard.

Just over the past 3 or 4 years or so I have really gotten into Eastwood's films full force. I consider him probably my favorite actor now
and love pretty much all his films, and probably own 95% of them on DVD. A shame it took me so long to discover one of if not
the greatest living icons Hollywood has ever seen.

Hopefully I'll meet some nice people on these boards, and get to talk about all things Eastwood and somethings not. Cheers!

Hi, CorrectionOfficers_Dad, and I'm sorry for the loss your community has suffered. I'm sorry, but this is just a fan site, and it's not Mr. Eastwood's personal or official web site. We don't have any way of communicating with him directly. All we can do is refer you to his general mailing address:

Clint Eastwood
C/O Malpaso Productions, Warner Bros.
4000 Warner Blvd,
Burbank CA, 91505

Because he receives so much fan mail, I am afraid I can't guarantee that if you write him, your message will receive his personal attention.

Hi, I'm new.  I have looked around this forum for several weeks and finally decided to join.  Wow,
I am a member of several boards and felt like it was going to have to go through the F.B.I before I got on.  You guys really get into some deep discussions and are particular about what is posted where.  It's like you all have a Phd in Eastwood.  I didn't know if I had the depth to get into the board, but decided to go ahead and join.  Anyway, I became a big Clint fan in the late 70s and early 80s when movies like "Josey wales," "The Gauntlet," The Enforcer," "Every Which Way But Loose," and "Escape From Alcatraz" seemed to come on tv two or three times a year; I caught them every one.  I'm a huge fan, but may not know as much detail as most of you members do.  My favorite Clint movie is "Pale Rider."  I can't explain why.  I base that on the fact that I have seen it the most times.  When I was a teenager in the 80s, I would sometimes watch it twice in one day on those cold winter days, and I'm not kidding.  It just seems to have all the elements of a good movie.

You are certainly welcome to post anywhere here, and don't worry if the occasional post gets moved. It's just a matter of making it easier to find things, it's in no way a judgment on the poster.

If Pale Rider is your favorite Clint film, maybe you'd like to take a look at our "Current Film Discussion (http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?board=15.0)"? You would be welcome to post your own thoughts in any of those threads.

We're looking forward to having you post here! 8)

Hello....


I remembered the site after switching the O/S of my computer from Windows to Linux (and the trailers for Gran Torino didn't hurt).I've been lurking around for awhile,and I finally decided to make the jump.Believe it or not,I was inspired by the latest issue of Esquire-a lot of those comments by Clint hit home.

I'm from Baltimore,Maryland.

My screen name is inspired by just who you'd expect it to be (I think).

My favorite Clint Eastwood movie changes all the time-it's like trying to choose your favorite lung-but I'd have to say Dirty Harry and High Plains Drifter,especially with the way things are going now.....but that's a story for another day.I think a big appeal of Clints' work is the fact that we all wish we could be Harry at some point (or Josey,or "Blondie",or Munny or...........)

I know I do.

It looks to me to be a great bunch of people here.

I look forward to my time amongst you all.

Hi let me introduce myself. I am rowdysgirlmary. Clint Eastwood will always be Rowdy Yates to me. I remember when I was a little girl argueing with my best friend who was better Clint Eastwood or Chuck Conners. My heart was broken when Rawhide was cancelled. I loved that show. Just this past Thrusday I purchased the first complete season and have been watching Rawhide.  How I love that show and I still do.  I plan on eventually owning the whole series for Rawhide.  I am so happy to have found this forum.  Thank you so much for approving me. I love reading about my favorite actor.

KC  I love all of Clint Eastwoods movies I truly do. I have most of them on tape. But ya know I was only six years years old when Rawhide left the tv air and at six years old well lets just say alot of Clints movies were rated R for the violence it was kinda hard on a young girl not to be able to watch her favorite cowboy and actor for alot of years. It takes awhile to go from being six years old to 17 years old and old enough for R movies. I love all his movies even the ones he has directed and not starred in. He is a very talented man. I do have to say though I was relieved when he was no longer having Sondra Locke in his movies for I did not think she could act very well. I loved the movies with Clyde the orangatang and I also love the Dirty Harry movies.

I have a guestion for all of you what was the name of Rowdys horse in Rawhide? When looking this up I found a place that said it was named Midnight but the picture of the horse looked more like Gil Favors horse then Rowdys horse. Rowdy's horse had a blaze down its nose and seemed to be a lighter color.

I wonder how Reach is doing with his project? 8)

Hello sorry for the VERY late reply! The project was assigned to us in October (due Jan 5th) but almost nobody started until Winter Break!  ;D  I am done now and I checked back on the website to say thanks and also for one last question in the Q&A forum (we still have to present our person in a 15 minute presentation, looking for ideas!). I feel I should at least describe my project, warning long post!

It is a Multi Genre Project on a person influential to American culture (general 11th grade English is focused solely on influential American literature such as Huck Finn, Beloved, Great Gatsby, etc. while AP English is focused on college level English language and composition + a bit of American lit). I chose Clint Eastwood because he is a very influential actor and director that gave fresh life to Westerns and directed many Academy award winning films.

My writing genres consisted of:
-a fake Malpaso Productions website http://malpasoproductions.media.officelive.com/default.aspx
-a "Clint Eastwood" holiday gift guide located on website
-a "Make my Day" law for California based on others in states such as Washington, North Carolina located on website
-a Facebook profile about him located on website
-an interview about "What if Clint Eastwood was actually a good mayor and pursued politics, and ran for President". It is set in the 96 Elections against Clinton for reelection for two reasons: Clinton's Republican opposition was very weak, and 10 years would be enough for a mayor of a town to seek a Senate seat and run for President)

The "Original Visual Representation" was a large collage of Clint in his most famous roles as The Man With No Name and Dirty Harry.

The required timeline was supposedly to start from his birth, but I chose to start from after his American success with The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly because that is really when his influence on American culture began.

Hello to All Shooters!
    I only just learned of this site some weeks ago.  And after looking at various sites devoted to or discussing the subject of famous holsters, I thought it would be nice to contribute to this one for history's sake; to clear up misconceptions, myths etc.; to add new facts, never before told about the most famous holster in the world: The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® Shoulder Holster.  In fact a very nice article by noted Gunwriter, Jerry Ahern on The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY(R) can be seen at THE OUTDOOR Channel's Website:http://www.downrange.tv/artman2/publish/ahern/397.shtml (http://www.downrange.tv/artman2/publish/ahern/397.shtml)

My name is JERRY ARDOLINO, the Original trademark owner and Original manufacturer of The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® Shoulder Holster for the public for the S & W Model 29, 6 ½” .44 Magnum; a fact well-documented over the last few decades by JERRY AHERN in SOLDIER of FORTUNE, Elmer Keith, in GUNS & AMMO, October, 1978; SKEETER SKELTON in SHOOTING TIMES; BOB ZWIRZ in GUN WORLD, January, 1980 and scores of other notable gun writers. I am the successor to the Bucheimer-Clark Holster Company of California and own the Original Pattern from them used to make the holsters for the films as well as a holster cut from the leather at that time for the films—a holster which I wore to carry my “backup” S & W Model 29, .44 Magnum when I was a Chicago Cop working the West Side projects and high-crime Lakefront areas of Chicago back in the late-Seventies.  So, here is a brief History of the Most Famous Holster in The World:
HISTORY and ORIGINS of The Original Dirty Harry ® Shoulder Holster
by JERRY ARDOLINO, Original Manufacturer and Founder of LAWMAN LEATHER GOODS:
Copyright 2009 by Jerry Ardolino

“The holsters that Bucheimer-Clark Holster Company originally made for the films were, requested and ordered by ELLIS MERCANTILE (prop house), later called: ELLIS PROPS & GRAPHICS and now out of business. I, Jerry Ardolino, am also owner of the FIRST die pattern ever made to produce that holster as well as, the ORIGINAL Bucheimer-Clark dies used to make the Harness and all other dies to make that holster for any guns with barrel lengths longer than 5”. They hang alongside the Original film/hard-use/working, real-world Original Dirty Harry ® Shoulder Holster, in my office in Las Vegas, Nevada. The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® is still produced by LAWMAN LEATHER GOODS™. Only whereas, I—LAWMAN LEATHER GOODS™ (Sole Proprietor) used to produce it for 744 different handguns; we, (LAWMAN LEATHER GOODS CORPORATION™) now produce The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® for EVERY Handgun, EVERY Caliber, EVERY Barrel Length ever manufactured, in the history of firearms. We do this through the VEX™ Program, a program which, I invented and developed over the last 2 ½ years. We are the ONLY Holster Company in the world to have this technology. This means that we now can produce a holster for over many thousands of handgun models without dies. Patterns and disposable dies are produced by VEX™. Another company would have to spend a couple of million dollars and wait years for the dies to be made, in order to achieve this.
 
I have been in the gun and leather goods business since 1975 and producing The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® Shoulder Holster for the public since 1977 and have, in my own factories or shops as well as in contracted companies, licensed by me; been producing The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® Shoulder Holster in my own shop in Texas since 1990, when I took over from a company I had an interest in that was producing it for me. I have produced, supervised the production of and sold TENS of THOUSANDS of THE ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® Shoulder Holster since then. And, I must say, that it has been a pleasure to see the constant interest in THE ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® over the past 32 years. Especially the record-high bucks being paid for vintage models: $1000.00. (Incidentally, we now offer a CERTIFICATION SERVICE if someone is thinking of purchasing a vintage model. Visit our website: LawmanLeatherGoods.com for info)

I’ve produced—on a limited, but brisk basis—The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® for shooters all over the USA from 1990 through the millennium—for vintage 8” barreled Colt Pythons, 4” Colt Diamondbacks, 8 3/8” S & W Model 29s and of course, 6 ½” Model 29s--in my aforementioned Texas shop. I purposely did not publicize; I only dealt with former customers, dealers and by word-of-mouth in order to avoid tremendous volume production, making holsters for old clients, cop friends and doing small contracts; plenty of money was taken in. However: I am now, Executive Vive-President of LAWMAN LEATHER GOODS CORPORATION, with Corporate Headquarters and Factory in Las Vegas, Nevada. We also have business offices in Texas and in Tokyo, Japan.

For those of you who don’t realize it; The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® was the First Shoulder Holster ever made on a production basis for handguns with barrel lengths greater than 6 ½”. That was my doing. There is a lot to the story of the holster. To write a complete and detailed history would take up many pages of this site. So, I’ll condense the events. I shall now separate the fact from fiction, the urban myths from truth and the fake from the real thing; time for a history and hard facts lesson!
The Real HISTORY of THE ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® Shoulder Holster:

*The beginnings of The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® Shoulder Holster is well documented in the later chapters of my book, EXTREME COP:CHICAGO PD, by JERRY ARDOLINO, 2006, Xlibris and Big City Crime Publishing, Library of Congress Catalog # 2006909745.

Bucheimer-Clark started as the Clark Holster Company of California. They made the Shoulder Holster for a variety of revolvers (No semi-Autos) in barrel lengths up to 5” ONLY. Bucheimer-Clark was acquired as a division of J.M. Buchheimer, a company that had been around since the 1880s. The holsters were use in other films in the sixties. And the holster was used by LAPD cops and California private eyes for years.

I acquired exclusive rights to the 6 ½” Model 29 Holster and other models from J.M. Bucheimer in a detailed contract agreement in the late seventies (with full rights to the dies as well as acquired the patterns and rights to the Old Clark Holster Co. of Los Angeles); and, I had the pleasure to work alongside Ed Clark, son of the Clark Company Founder.  Ed was in his fifties back then and had been making holsters since the forties when he was a kid. It was Ed who hand-cut the holsters for ELLIS MERCANTILE and the one I own for the films. The FIRST Dies made for the holster were made for me. As I mentioned, I still have them and he original holster my company has duplicates. About the infamous Tension Screw: yes, there was one in the film models and some didn’t have them. ELLIS MERCANTILE probably chose the ones with the screw because of the gleam or something. Ed Clark had long since eliminated the screws. They served no useful purpose and, in fact, couldn’t possibly adjust tension as they were on the wrong side. But because they couldn’t be put on the opposite side as it was an open side; they were eliminated. Another big reason was the act that the leather washer used around them would wear off; scratching the user’s gun’s sight or top strap. It was strictly cosmetic. And by the way, on the holsters used in the films, the screws showed on the front and the entire affair is nickel, not brass.

The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® Shoulder Holster which, I, as mentioned before, have been producing for over 3 decades, is made to EXACT specs as the film versions and from the EXACT leather specs as the ones from the 70s--"Beware of Imitations"

URBAN MYTH DESTRUCTION: Myth 1:Contrary to many blogs, the gun in the films was a 6 ½”, Model 29, .44 Mag; and the scenes where it looks longer is because of camera lens distortion. It was a 6 ½”. Myth 2:The ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® is not just a “movie holster.” It IS and has for over 32 YEARS been a real-world holster for professionals like myself, who carry a gun for a living. That’s “R-E-A-L W-O-R-L-D” as in: Police, Sheriffs, Constables, Licensed Private Detectives, Security Agents, certain Federal Agents, certain Foreign Police, certain US. Navy SEALS, certain Army Rangers, many Force RECON Marines, many British SAS members, many British SBS members, the old Royal Hong Kong Police, Former Prince Ali Ben Nayif of Jordan’s Royal Bodyguard, Japanese undercover Police, French Gigene members, Italian Caribinieri members and German GSG-9 Anti-Terrorist forces troops. YES, we have sold to all of the aforementioned.

The late, Elmer Keith, the greatest, and most honored handgunner of all time, whom, I met on the telephone when I first started selling my ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® out of my apartment in Chicago; was the first of many famous gunwriters to write about the holster over the last three decades.  He was very old at the time and had been a real cowpuncher in Montana. As a kid, he had witnessed gun fights. He was real. We finally got to meet when I was an invited guest at a GUNS & AMMO luncheon during the 1979 NSGA show in Houston, Texas (see EXTREME COP: CHICAGO PD). That was a great experience. I thanked him for the great write up that he had given the rig in the previous fall issue. We had no ads in the magazine, not even a classified. Yet, Elmer Keith got the rig, loved it and in the October, 1978 issue of Guns & Ammo Magazine, he stated that it was “...the most comfortable shoulder holster I have ever tried for heavy guns."

Hey shooters---this is all real. The “copy harrys” is not. Now, if you want the Real ORIGINAL DIRTY HARRY® Shoulder Holster, made from the REAL HAND SELECTED, HEAVY LEATHER, by the ORIGINAL MAKERS from the ORIGINAL DIES for ANY Handgun in the World.  We just returned from exhibiting at the S.H.O.T. Show, in Orlando Florida where, we had a successful and great time.

Hi all,
I'm from the UK and have been a big fan of Clint Eastwood for 30 years now! The very first film i'd seen of his was 'High Plains Drifter' when i was 9 years old. The one thing i remember about that film at that time more than anything else had to be the music that accompanied the film. My favourite Clint Eastwood character has to be of course Harry Callahan hence my username. The Dirty Harry films for me are the ultimate but not far behind is 'play misty for me' and Thunderbolt & Lightfoot. I look forward to looking through many of the threads on this forum and giving some of my own thoughts and opinions of the GREAT man & his many films.          Looks a really 'COOL' forum by the way!

Hello there,

I'm elementalhero an Egyptian Eastwood fan living in the UK, I've been a fan of Clint Eastwood for a long time ever since I've watched Waner Video VHS of the Dirty Harry movies that belonged to friends of my parents back in Egypt. I've then became fascinated with Clint watching the Man With No Name movies, Unforgiven and many others.

Clint Eastwood is quite popular in Arabic parts of the Middle East to the point that MBC 2 (part of MBC, the most watched Arabic network on satalite) used to host a Clint Eastwood night either every Monday or Tuesday nights (I don't remember).

I haven't seen Gran Torino but I want to.

Welcome to elementalhero and LCat! Enjoy the Board! :)

elementalhero, I'm interested to know that Clint is popular in the Arabic-speaking Middle East. We don't hear much about people's preference in popular culture in that part of the world.

Along with appreciating Arabic/local popculture like Arabic movies...etc, most Arabic/Muslim countries actually enjoy Western popculture, Hollywood films are popular over there, in fact I remembered when I went to see Independance Day when it was released in Egypt, the place was stacked with a huge crowd wanting to see the film, the same thing with Titanic. US shows are popular like Murder She Wrote, Friends, Golden Girls, 24, LOST, Desperate Housewives, Sinfeld...etc Arab movie goers love Action, Romance and Comedy. Guys like Sly, Arnold, Eastwood, Norris and even Dolph have quite a following especially among Egyptians who grew up in the 80's. Speaking of 80's, there was a huge Kung Fu craze that time too, movies starring the likes of Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan were quite popular. Then in the early 90's came the popularity of Bollywood movies especially the ones starring Amitabh Bachan (I personally prefer the 70's movies over the 80's)

Cartoons are popular too, Disney, Looney Toons, Popeye, Tom And Jerry you name it. Anime also has a huge fanbase since the 80's.

AS for music, Middle Eastern music is loved of course. As for western music, Pop is popular followed by Rock music, Jazz, Classical Rap and Hip Hop (Rap had a following before but became really popular after Tupac's death)

Hello everyone,

Canadian french here, im happy to have found your forum, it looks really nice !


Here's my story :

Younger i tought that the old westerns movies would be boring.
One day, as i was watching tv, i stopped on a channel where this old western was playing...
I never had interests into that kind of movies, but then, i realised that i was curious about it, and i decided to give it a chance, you know, to see...
After 5-10 minutes, my reaction to "A Fist Full of Dollars" was something like : "hey.... hey... its cool !".
I watched the rest of the movie and i remember that at the end i just wanted to see more.

Thats how it started.


well i guess thats my intro  ;)

Hello Eastwood fans!

I will try to keep this brief; a couple of years ago (what seems an eternity to me, but i'm quite certain it was only a couple of years...) I used to be a member of this Fantastic Board, known back then as either Misty or Misty71, I can't be quite sure- But anyways- about 2 weeks ago I had the pleasure of viewing ''Gran Torino'' at my local theatre and I must say, it rekindled my interest for all things Eastwood.

So driving back home I suddenly remembered this place and wondered if it still existed-
(to be perfectly honest in the ever changing horizon of the internet, I most certainly had my doubts)
so I looked it up and imagine my surprise when-
A) Not only is it still alive and kickin'  -but
B) It has the same beautifull layout  -and even more surprinsingly
C) It still has most of the members I used to dwell amongst back then
D)The Endless Pointless Thread still exists!

Now That is quite a feat! I mean most web board tend to change overnight or become overwhelmed with one time posters and you never see the original members again- But this board seems to have risen above all that, proving in a way that once you've aquired a taste for Clint Eastwood films, it is something more than a fad, something that will remain with you. (even if you forget for  a while, as I did)

I hope all has been well for the members here-I don't know if any of you guys remember me, I imagine I must have been something of a pain in the neck back then and so I do thank you all very much for putting up with yours truely -
Hopefully my contribution now can be a little more enlightened if somewhat less frequent ;)

Now, I have an extensive collection of Clint films,and I will shamefully admit that I have not watched most of them in quite some time and I am sort of busier than I was back then, but I think the film discussions will allow me to relive the exitement , one masterpiece at a time, until there comes a time where I can quote with the best of 'em

'til then take care
Misty Wooster

Familiar Faces Familiar Faces...Really cool- And yes- I do remember all of you guys
As Ozzy osbourne once said in a random interview ''i'ts like putting on an old pair of shoes- it fits''

As for punk rock, we did keep playing back then for quite some time but it never materialized into something more than Garage entertainment, and then everyone sorta graduated and well...we still play but separately :)

-I still play a couple of instruments,write songs that no one will ever hear, still worship Nirvana , although my musical horizons are more Jazz oriented these days, but one can never quite forget her roots, right?

Xichado,One thing  I remember VERY well were all your threads about symbolism and how I used to think I would never be able to see links like that in movies, and now I do! (maybe not as insightful, but hey- it's a start!)

Well, i'm off to work (which is right here on the other computer next to me - I work from home now)
so i'll see you guys later

Hello everyone
I'm Bluemist and I'm new to this forum. I am a huge fan of Clint Eastwood and have enjoyed watching many of his films time and again over the years. I'd have to say my 2 top favourites are Play Misty For Me (hence my user name!) and The Bridges Of Madison County. Every time I watch The Bridges I always want Meryl Streep to get out of the car and go off with him in the end. Its so sad to watch him drive off for ever. I also enjoy a good cop film like Tightrope, for example. I never get tired of watching Clint and enjoy looking at those chiselled features every time.  :)

Hello everyone
I'm Bluemist and I'm new to this forum. I am a huge fan of Clint Eastwood and have enjoyed watching many of his films time and again over the years. I'd have to say my 2 top favourites are Play Misty For Me (hence my user name!) and The Bridges Of Madison County. Every time I watch The Bridges I always want Meryl Streep to get out of the car and go off with him in the end. Its so sad to watch him drive off for ever. I also enjoy a good cop film like Tightrope, for example. I never get tired of watching Clint and enjoy looking at those chiselled features every time.  :)

Welcome BLUEMIST ! And enjoy this site as much as a lot of us do ! ;)
Just like you  I love this particular scene in Bridges of Madison County !

Did you see the last Eastwood films on screen, Changeling and Gran Torino ?

thanks for the warm welcome.

I havent seen Gran Torino yet but hope to do so soon. Is it any good?

I've seen a couple of clips of it and it looks intriguing. Its just sad to see how Clint has aged now.

Hello everyone! _Clintan_ here. I’m a long-time fan of Clint Eastwood’s from Sweden. I remember being a kid and watching those classic westerns &  Dirty Harry  films on TV. It took me a while to find this forum, but when I did I knew it was right up my alley. I’m going to enjoy sharing my thoughts with all of you, this seems like a great place to be as a fan of Clint Eastwood.

Hi everybody! I'm a 23year-old Italian girl and I found this forum some weeks ago, looking for information about Clint and especially about "Human Factor".
This place is great, guys. So I thought it would be nice to introduce myself and say "hi!".

I may say I've always loved Clint, I saw "A Perfect World" when I was just a little girl and I liked it very much. 
But in the last few months - thank to "Changeling" and "Gran Torino" - I developed a bigger interest in his career, and I started watching all his previous movies ("Play Misty for Me", "High Plains Drifter", etc.)

My favorite Clint movies so far are "Million Dollar Baby", "Unforgiven", "The Bridges of Madison County" - but it's hard to choose.

What else?
I love cinema, of course. I watch tons of movies. I'm interested in film critic. I love period movies. I like reading. I adore listening to movie soundtracks.

Glad to meet you all, bye. :)

I'm from Sweden and a huge Clint Eastwood fan. I would post a picture of my Clint Eastwood dvd collection just to brag but since I'm missing three of his movies (Bird, Thunderbolt and Lightfood and The Beguiled) so I'll just have to hold on to it.

Hi all,

I am an Aussie who has not watched movies for a number of years (work, study, life intervened) but I have always carried a fondness for the superstars of my youth and Clint Eastwood was always the man for me (although I have a strong liking for Sylvester Stallone). I just liked Eastwood the most.

As with most people, I have a great affinity to the Dirty Harry movies but I can honestly say that I have never seen an Eastwood film that didn't have tremendous qualities. Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is a special with me.

Just finished rewatching Sudden Impact after a break of maybe 20 years and it was as great now as it was then. I only wish we could have seen Harry take the dog with him at the end!

By the way, something has always bugged me. There is a black man in the Dirty Harry movies. He was the "Go ahead make my day" guy in the first movie when he was caught and Harry didn't know if he had fired 5 or 6 bullets, he was in Sudden Impact and was in another Harry film. Who is he?


Cheers,

Peter

HELLO, I´M CARLOS FROM BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA. I´VE BEEN LIVING IN MADRID, SPAIN, FOR ALMOST THE LAST 11 YEARS, AND AM VERY FOND OF GOOD ACTION MOVIES. I THINK CLINT EASTWOOD MOVIES SUCH AS THE "DIRTY HARRY" COLLECTION AND "THE GAUNLET" ARE ON THE TOP OF POLICE MOVIES. OTHERS SUCH AS "EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE" STARRING WITH CLYDE ARE UNFORGETTABLE, I LAUGHED A LOT WATCHING THEM IN ACTION. REGARDING WESTERNS I THINK THAT "UNFORGIVEN" IS SUPREME.

WELL, I´M 39 AND I WORK IN CHEMISTRY. I´M SURE I´LL ENJOY VISITING THIS FORUM.

Hi all,

I came across this forum several months ago and have enjoyed reading the discussions on various topics.  I decided to quit lurking and sign up.  I'm totally new to this and probably won't post often, but that could change.

I first saw Clint Eastwood in For A Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly on TV when I was 14.  Early this year I rediscovered these movies and have been working my way through as many of his other movies as I have been able to get my hands on.  Fortunately, my local library system has many of them.  I'll get around to posting my thoughts on some of them some other days.  :)

Hi all!

I've been following the forum for a really long time and finally decided I just needed jump in and join. Seems like everyone has a good time here and I've enjoyed reading many of the threads.

I really like that you have a "movie night" (nice idea) but my TV and computer are in two different rooms, so watching with you all would be difficult! Sorry that I missed the "Survivor" game, but I'll get it next time 'round!  ;)

Anyway I'll say that Clint's westerns (Dollars Trilogy, High Plains Drifter, The Outlaw Josey Wales, etc) are probably my favorite of his body of work and I think I've seen most of his movies over the years, barring a few. Joe/Manco/Blondie is definitely my favorite character.

Well I guess that's it for now and I look forward to joining in when I can!

This isn't a so big surprise, GreenEyes. Coogan has always been one my fav Clint characteres and he and Julie make a lovely couple. :)

Hello, my "real" name is Mike, I love the Rush song Tom Sawyer, a huge Rush fan. I love Clint Eastwood films, he is second only to Jimmy Stewart on my favorite actor list.

Nice to find this board!!

New Here and wanted to say Hi!

I've been trying to register for what seems like forever, but I stuck with it and I'm finally in! Success!  O0

In reality I just fell hard for Clint earlier this year (when I caught Hang 'em High and High Plains Drifter on TV) and have since been watching every movie I can get my hands on. I've seen most of them by now, with the exception of a few I'm still working on getting my hands on. My friends and husband are probably tired of hearing me talk about his movies and how awesome he is, so I thought I'd just join you guys.

I'll go ahead and credit Clint with getting me interested in Westerns in general, which is awesome because now I know about Lee Van Cleef, Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, etc.. who are all also amazing to watch.

I look forward to posting with you guys!

Hi!  I'm Nelson Johnson, a Clint fan from the early sixties.  My wife doesn't understand me, or Clint, but that doesn't matter.  I know talent when I see it, and Clint Eastwood is one of the most talented, creative and intelligent men I have ever seen.  He lives what he performs, and that makes him real.  He is direct, clear, kind, and truly cares about people.  He's tough!  To say the least, and not tough in a trivial, bullying way, but in the way that the poet Kahlil Gibran described:  "When you see one who is strong, and gentle too, pray, feast your eyes.  The blind can see his qualities."

So, please, make my day!  Looks like you got a great site here.

Peace with honor.

Nelson

Hi,

Just some background on me and why I joined. I wrote to Clint Eastwood when I was 6 years old to ask him to send a birthday card to my mum. I live in the UK and I knew he had the Hogs Breath inn, so I wrote a letter to them rather than to the film studio. 6 months later I got a signed photo with Happy Birthday Valerie Clint Eastwood from Carmel. How cool is that. I was working in Seattle a few years ago and went down to Carmel and rung her up in the middle of the night to say I was actually in the hogs breath Inn. She died recently and I found the photo.

I also now have two Clint Eastwood tattoos, the first was the Dirty Harry Magnum force pose taken from the 6ft pop art image in the saatchi gallery in London. And more recently the Good, the Bad and the Ugly three head shots with the italian title underneath each head tattoed.

Hello to everyone.

Hi all. It's unlikely that this will be read by any but the most dedicated from this forum. First: where we agree; I'm 47 and have been watching CE movies for as long as I can remember. I have watched his growth as a actor and then into an auteur.
Now where we may disagree, or maybe I need help in understanding: What the hell went wrong with J. Edgar? It's potentially such a powerful story.

Greetings fellow Eastwood fans. I've been enjoying Clint's films for quite a few years, but only recently came across this site.  I found it just the other day after watching a Clint double feature on AMC(Pale Rider/Josey Wales). Very impressed with all the info and background available here.  O0
I was doing a search on the mining town La Hood from Pale Rider. It looked so real I've always thought it was one of those old western ghost towns. So I browsed through the forum here and was surprised it was built as a movie set. It sure looked authentic.

I'm also an amateur firearms enthusiast and got a real blast out of the thread on Clint's guns. I've got some questions on that topic so I'll be posting them there.
Looking forward to up coming discussions and will try to make some interesting contributions as well.

Greetings, I was looking for information on an 1858 New Army conversion & found the site by accident..a happy accident as it were.

I am a fan of Clint's older westerns, Outlaw Josey Wales stands out, & many of his other films as well.

As one might gather from my opening statement, I am a "gun guy" & as many of Mr. Eastwoods films have firearms raised almost to the level of "co-star", it's probably natural that I would be a fan.

Hello Clint Eastwood fans,

I am a huge western movie fan, and naturally I am also a huge Clint Eastwood fan as well!  I do have my favorites when it comes to all of his western movies just like everyone else does.  But I can tell you I really like every one of his western's!  There's not one that I don't like!  His ability to grab the audiences attention not just in western's but in all of his movies is first class and second to none!  I also really enjoy all of his other non western movies as well.  To me a sign of a great actor is the ability to grab the audiences attention, keeping them interested, and the actors ability to play various roles.  He definetely grabs my attention and keeps me interested.  And he has proven that he is a great actor in various other movie genre's as well.  I had been visiting this site for a few weeks and decided to become a member.   Everybody on here seems really cool!  I am looking forward to getting to know all of you.  And I am really looking forward to posting and replying to various discussion topics about our favorite actor, director, and producer Clint Eastwood.

Thanks

Rawhide7

Never knew a forum about Clint even existed. I'm sure I would of joined years ago. It'll be great to catch up on all the trivia I should already know. Lots of passionate people here I'm sure. If I truly have something to say I'll be brief and if I don't I'll just keep it to myself. I came to this site to deliver some long over-due ideas. Hopefully they'll inspire just a little and everyone's input here will inspire me just a little as well. This is a very well run forum I must say. I'm sure Clint is very happy with what has been done here no doubt. Lots of cool people here...  O0

Welcome David.

I did enjoy your thread for another Dirty Harry.  Hope we see you around here more often.

We have no idea if Clint does look at this forum.  If he ever did I would hope he would be pleased with it.

See what I mean...Cool people everywhere. Thanks for the compliments everyone. I know forums are read by lots of people; especially celebrities. They can't help but want to know what others are thinking about them. You simply can not ignore public opinion. The internet is everywhere.

The outline I wrote for a Dirty Harry sequel is always evolving. I've fine tuned it somewhat but still add things when I get ideas that seem to work well with it. By the end of this summer I'll most likely consider sending it to one of those web sites I listed at the very end of my posts. I'll roll the dice and see what happens then...

See you out there in cyberspace eveyone.  :)

Hi all, glad to be on the site…!

Your posts caught my attention, rr-electricangel. I completed a Dirty Harry screenplay a couple weeks ago and talked with his agent on Monday, who was extremely kind, cordial, and helpful -- up to the mention of Dirty Harry, at which point I was smacked down like a snot-nosed school kid. Lol...d'oh! Sort of a "Not only no, but hell no" kind of thing. Ah, well...can't blame him. But still a darned good script. Maybe I can rework it as some other hard-nosed retired cop helping solve what I feel is a pretty interesting and timely string of politically-motivated crimes. Not near as fun without that Clint Eastwood sparkle, though. I actually started to rewrite it already, but it's just not the same. Maybe I'll try Spartacus 2 for Kirk Douglas...

It was Mr. Eastwood's own fault, really, since -- although he's dismissed and ridiculed the idea of another Dirty Harry for reasons I fully understand, and probably would've voiced myself prior to the inspiration to write it -- he did say in one of the interviews on the Dirty Harry DVD four pack that "If the right script came along" he'd consider it. And what with my being a bit of a writer, and having a germ of an idea from a Dirty Harry reference I'd made regarding the Superbowl ad in private correspondence, and it being during the two or three months I had no TV reception and only watched DVDs, three-quarters of which were the first five seasons of Gunsmoke (which are surprisingly noir in their dialogue and situations) and the aforementioned Dirty Harrys, I said "Ah, what the hell...?"

What the hell, indeed. SMACK! Thanks for letting me share my grief with you. I can move on now...

Hi everybody.

I'm a huge Clint Eastwood fan.  I've lurked on this board for years and I've got to say this is a great website. My favorite Eastwood movies are his westerns and cop movies but I don't think he has very many bad movies in his whole filmography.  You can't say that about most actors.  Anyway I thought I'd just introduce myself. :)

Dear Clint Eastwood, I joined this Blog to let you know how much I respect you for coming forward to let the American People know what to do. You are very much respected around the world as an American Icon and Idol. Your call to do the Right Thing was an important message to the world, it let those who thought they did the wrong thing know what the Right Thing is to do now. So, Thank You.  Sincerely, Linda L Hill

Welcome to the Eastwood Web Board, Jalene Howse! 8)

All I can locate online as sheet music is the theme from Where Eagles Dare, not the polka. I also checked the international library database, WorldCat (http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/694367642). But there, too, all I can find is the theme.

If you have more questions, you might want to pose them in our Questions & Answers Forum.  :)

Hello all, this is MacDave from Scotland.
I've been a Clint fan since I was too young to get into the cinema to see Dirty Harry. 
Me and my family will often  have a Clint movie night and I don't mind what we watch, the movies all have something.  Favourite is certainly Dirty Harry - everything about it, the soundtrack, locations, those tweed jackets, I'll never tire of this film.
I've looked in at this site for information before but I like the idea of on-line discussions with fellow fans and look forward to making your acquaintance.

You probably remember the great Don Stroud as Clint's  nemesis in Coogans Bluff and Joe Kidd , a particularly nasty character actor up there with the all time bad buggers Richard Widmark , Vic Morrow ,Stevie Ihnat, Luke Askew or Clu Gulager.

But The Stroud's attempts to cover his balding head with his magnificent mane of hair are truly legendary and possibly deserve a website all of their own. One of the most thrilling , joyous and downright silly pleasures of 1970's and 80's cinema was the combover of Don Stroud...

Hi all. I am a UK Eastwood fan who started collecting when given a video recorder in 92 and wanted films to watch so started collecting. Mind you I remember going to see Heartbreak Ridge by myself in 86 as none of my mates wanted to see it so the die was struck pretty early really! One thing lead to another and over 20yrs the collection is still steadily growing. I was back in touch with Davy Triumph very recently and comparing posters and trying to help in the question of who the man in the buck is on the Kelly's Heroes poster and so I thought I should join in properly. Don't do social media but this is far more interesting so here I am!

Oh and I'm so addicted to Clint I am having trouble remembering the one that made me love him. So many reasons for it as I had crushes on his co stars at some points. Probably A Perfect World as I use to have a crush on Costner.  :smitten: . Anybody watch the Oscars he came on my screen not doing anything and I scream Clint and kiss my tv

I'm new here.

I was interested in finding a way to contact Clint Eastwood (mail a letter or send him an email).

I'm sure I am not his biggest fan, but he has always been extraordinary to me. It would be great to get to shake his hand.

You can set up automatic notification in your profile. Go to your profile summary page, and under "Modify profile," select "Notifications." Then pick the options you want.

Gday,

Seemed like the right place to post my initial reply. Was browsing through the discussions and must say am a tad disappointed at the lack of interaction which leads me to think of how to to raise awareness to this forum- direct more fans to this site.. how did we all get here? Personally I am travelling and therefore away from my stash of DVDs that have satisfied my desires as a big fan - watching online and googled my interest - this site came up. Would like to see any suggestions on how to enhance the number of topics and responses put into action.. first post cheers

Welcome to the Eastwood Web Board, DoYouPunk!

This site has been around for a very long time—in its original incarnation it goes back to 1996! The Board in this version was started in 2002. So naturally, discussion has died down a bit. We are always happy to hear from new members, especially those who wish things were more lively around here! Perhaps you could find something that interests you among the older topics, and add your own thoughts to start with?

I hope you will enjoy the Board!

Hey Andrew!

There's a lot of us still here every day, and thousands of threads on the board. I was gone for a little while, and trying to catch up, and there's a lot of reading to catch up on!  Some of our threds here go back to 2002, and some moved over discussions from older incarnations of this board go back even before that. No one minds a discussion being reopened from the past -- some boards frown on it, not us. So if you read through any threads and want to comment, please comment away. It may prompt us to join back in too.

It's sort of an old community here, like KC said, and you'll find it's not just about discussions, we become like friends and family, hanging out and discussing whatever we love, whether it's a Clint movie, or even others in the Off Topic forum.

It's not a slow board, but it CAN use a sprinkle of new blood and enthusiasm, so good to see you here, and join in!

Good ol' introduction thread...  Charlie here.  Eastwood fan after watching Outlaw Josey Wales in High School and never looked back.  I think one of you guys tapped my movie poster forum I co-own, looking for SouthernCat (aka Matt) whom is also an owner with me and one other Aussie.  I'm from Texas.  I ran through my Eastwood phase (buying everything I could) a while back and I imagine between Matt, Myself, and Davytriumph we could host our own Eastwood memorabilia convention...  I do pick up new stuff now and then and of course watch the films.  Just thought I would pop on, check you guys out and look for places to contribute.

Charlie, that was me (the sleuth that found him) and my hired gun tapped you.

Try to get some more Eastwood fans over here for the Eastwood Challenge. We're watching ALL his movies, and we just started the first week (of 33 weeks of Eastwood Movie glory).

Try to get Matt (Southern Cat) over here too. Things got a little slow here, but then I showed up (again) to bring hell back to the board (feeling like Stranger a bit).

I wish I had known about your forum. I just practically gave away about $10k worth of Eastwood for $1,800.   :(

I will promote the challenge on our forum and maybe we can do a co-forum movie night or something if you guys are up to it.  Last year we did a movie night with Unforgiven.

Hello, I don't know if this is the right place to introduce myself.
I've discovered your forum this afternoon when I made a resarch on google.
I'm French and I've been an Eastwood fan since 1977 ! I can remember very well because I couldn't see The Enforcer; the movie was forbidden for people under 18 in France.
I've watched all movies since then. I recorded them on cassettes when they were broadcast in the 80s, I bought the DVD in the 2000s and I gave up the French version and nowadays, I have most of the movies on DVDs or on Blu-rays when the quality is better.
I've begun to write reviews of each Eastwood's movies since last April for our French website (dedicated to series and film stars). So far; I have reviewed 20 movies (up to The Outlaw Josey Wales) and the 40 others will follow.
http://theavengers.fr/index.php/hors-serie/cinema/clint-eastwood

It's in French of course but with some google translations devices, it will be possible to understand the big points. I hope you can understand my English and I will participate in this interesting and incredible forum dedicated to the most fabulous actor. Eastwood means movie for me and thanks to his movies, anyone in the world can understand and lean American culture and way of living !

Hey folks, I just wanted to tell Clint Eastwood how much I admired him and his work. I`m 63 and when I was in High School, there were 3 drive-ins around my home. We especially liked it when they showed the three Sergio Leone movies on the weekend specials. How many time I saw them? Uncountable.
I know it is nearly impossible to personally contact him, but this forum will have to do. Even at 63 yrs old, Clint is still one of my mentors in life situations. His body of work and his personal life helped shape my life in a very positive manner. So, "Do ya feel Lucky"? Yeah, I do.

I just discovered this site after reading the cover story of the July 17 edition of...closer magazine, good article, so I thought I'd check to see if there was a Clint web site  (and I thought I was his biggest fan). I'm probably not the first person to think of this but there should be a movement to.....CLONE CLINT.   Where better to start it than here.  There are some people so special that at the very least their DNA ought to be preserved in a special DNA Bank (just in case they ever perfect cloning). I want mine preserved so I can watch his new movies ,  maybe they will perfect C.G. enough so that cloning won't be needed.  :)
