Title: High Plains Drifter "Behind the Scenes" featurette
Post by: KC on August 15, 2010, 10:53:33 PM
I noticed a link to a Cinema Retro bit about this on the IMDb today. Here's the bit:

Here's a short but interesting B&W promotional film shot by Universal showing Clint Eastwood directing his 1973 Western High Plains Drifter. If fans and collectors can locate gems such as these and post them on YouTube, why can't studios find them in their own vaults and include them on the DVD releases?

And here's the link to the video:

Near the end, the narrator says, "You can bet on one thing. He's going to be around making films for a long time to come."  That proved to be true!

Oh this was excellent! Thanks so much for sharing this KC, it made my morning!  8)

And as the original article said, I wish this stuff was on the DVD's too. *sigh*

Great KC.   Thank you for posting it.   There are a few other items related to the youtube video when you open the link, so there is even more to see.

Excellent.

Well done KC O0

Surely that must have been filmed in colour?

Yip, I found a great behind the scenes clip from Paint Your Wagon.  It runs for 8.5 minutes.

Gees, I`ve just noticed that it is mentioned in Cinema Retros web page.  Don`t you just hate it when you think you have found something interesting, just to realise that you have been beat to it .  ::)
