Title: The Definitive List Of Eastwood Related Books
Post by: The Schofield Kid on January 22, 2008, 10:39:22 PM
I know there a plenty of threads already about Eastwood related books, and doing a search last night, I came across so many topics, I thought this is crazy. We should have one thread with a complete list. So here is it.

I searched the threads we already have and have put those books on this list (there may be more that I missed), plus a couple that I have. Anyone who has a book not listed please post it and any comments you have about it and I'll add it to this list, and everytime someone mentions a book or a new book is released I can keep modifying this first post. If possible please add the title, author and year of release.
This will only be books about Clint and/or his films, or books by/on others that Clint is featured prominently. No books that Clint made into films or film tie-in books please.

Post by: KC on January 23, 2008, 07:42:26 AM
I'm a librarian. We'll get a definitive list on here, no worries ... marked up for MARC if you like. ;)

I think I had around forty to fifty titles on my list but I haven't updated it in a while. I'm in the process of moving files between computers, but should be able to attend to this shortly. 

Or, of course ... talk about not reinventing the wheel ... one could just go to worldcat.org and put in an "advanced search" on the subject "Eastwood, Clint."

http://www.worldcat.org/search?q=su%3Aeastwood%2C+clint&qt=advanced

I got 192 hits. :D
Title: Re: The Definitive List Of Eastwood Related Books
Post by: KC on January 23, 2008, 07:44:33 AM
Not all of those are books, of course (but why not include documentary videos on our list?) What would really make this worthwhile would be if we could produce an annotated list, with comments about each book/video by someone who's read it or watched it. That would be a project.

Yeah, that would sure be nice ... and very helpful too. But that demands a lot of work. I could probably help, but I'm so busy right now I wouldn't be able to help until say a couple of years  :D :D

I've been too busy to get back to this, also! Did anyone check out the list at WorldCat.org? (Hint: select format "Book" (124 hits), then sort by "Date: Increasing.")
Title: Re: The Definitive List Of Eastwood Related Books

I had a quick look just to get the dates for the books I didn't have, so I could put them in order.

At Schirmer Encyclopedia of Film, volume 3, there is a reference to the following book

Horizons West: Directing the Western from John Ford to Clint Eastwood
by Jim Kitses, London, British Film Institute, 2004

not quite sure if it belongs in this thread, but the book has an entire chapter on Clint Eastwood.
Title: Re: The Definitive List Of Eastwood Related Books
Post by: KC on March 24, 2008, 06:34:42 AM
I have Horizons West ... the chapter on Eastwood is called "Clint Eastwood: Tightrope Walker." I've only skimmed it so far, though.

I'd forgotten about this thread. I was suprised when I saw I started it over a year ago.

Anyway I went through the worldcat.org list and added plenty that weren't on the list including some written in other languages other than english.

I was quite suprised I didn't run out of room in the post.

I have only The Films Of Clint Eastwood by Boris Zmijewsky & Lee Pffeiffer (1982)

I found and bought this book in a library right here in Brasil. I was 18 year old or something I when I got home I showed to my dad, as he said:

"but...it's whole written in English!" (at that time my english was even worse that it is today so he thought I wouldn't able to translate it ;D)

"No dad it's only some excerpts..."
"No it's the whole book!"
 :D

This pic is in the page 34, I love it.

The WorldCat link I posted above now gives you 150 books, out of 227 total hits! :D

EDIT: I should note that in this context, "Books" includes print material such as pressbooks and other publicity material, such as the Danish booklet "Han kom, han så, han skød!" ("He came, he saw, he shot!" aka Two mules for Sister Sara). The results list also includes some impossible items, such as an alleged pressbook promoting a film not known to me, titled The Outlaw Josie Wales.

99% of all library cataloging is done by idiots.

Post by: KC on January 29, 2012, 09:36:57 PM
The World Cat list now comprises around 380 items classed as "books," though quite a few of them are either duplicate records or variant editions of the same title (including e-books, large print editions, etc.) and translations. It's a good way to check out the latest stuff, though, if you select "Sort by Date: Newest first."

I have tons of Clint books from when I was writing my undergraduate university dissertation on Clint and masculinity. I probably have over 10 books on Clint including one with essays on Clint and a number of original magazines that one of our original members, mgk, was kind enough to send to me through the post. My dissertation had incredible reference material thanks to mgk. I should have sent her a present to say thank you. I could list the books I have here but I'd have to go hunting round to get them all together and list them. None of my books are in order since I moved house in January 2015!

Just so we have the title in the thread ... the book fanoclint linked to is Das große Clint Eastwood Buch, by Tobias Hohmann. It's Part 1, which carries the story up to 1979. It is in German, but seems to be well-illustrated.

Here is the summary from Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Trail-Bronco-Billy-3rd/dp/152388309X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1468168317&sr=1-1):

Quote
Clint Eastwood filmed Bronco Billy in Southwest Idaho in 1979. It was a big thing for Idahoans from the Treasure Valley to follow a Hollywood movie being filmed in front of them and many came out to watch and/or participate in the production. More than a thousand Idahoans were involved as extras or crew while hundreds more watched. They all have their stories. This is some of them. The book also includes insights about the shooting locations (over 20!) and newspaper articles keeping the locals apprised of the movie's progress. Sandy Kershner put this book together out of her love of her native state and the people who populate it, her respect for the actor/director who brought this film to Idaho, and for the character Clint Eastwood created, a frustrated 20th century man who creates his dream of being a cowboy by recapturing the past with a wild west show which he struggles to keep alive, along with his dream.

Clint Eastwood (Critical Evaluations of Leading Film-Makers)Apr 8, 2017
by Laurence Knapp


Quote
This new 4 volume collection includes the best and most influential critical scholarship on Clint Eastwood. The articles gathered here embrace issues such as gender, masculine lack and anxiety and interrogate Eastwood as a symptomatic object of American identity. Other themes include mortality, female subjectivity, post-colonialism, and existential despair brought on by war and ecological disaster.

JUST PUBLISHED:

Clint Eastwood vs. The Rainbow: Racism, Misogyny, Homophobia and Other Cinematic Foolishness, by David Womack.  Flying Public Press 2021 softcover.  186 pages.

- Which Eastwood film has a dog named "Faggot" and a black woman referred to as "Aunt Jemima?"

-  Which film stops the plot in its tracks in order to make a rancid statement on black identity?

- Which film has the most gun commercials?

-  Which Eastwood performance made a Republican politician puke?

In disentangling Eastwood's directorial persona from the prestigious work of the directors (Sergio Leone, Don Siegel) who spawned him, Clint Eastwood vs. The Rainbow exposes a filmic sensibility increasingly relegated to the dustbin of cinematic history in the wake of gay marriage, Black Lives Matter, Me-Too and Gen Z.
