Eastwood News / Happy 90th birthday Clint.....
« on: July 05, 2020, 10:00:15 PM »
I guess Iím celebrating Clintís 90th birthday with repeated viewings of Firefox.  Itís taken 38 years for me to finally, fully appreciate this movie and love it.  I still canít get enough of it lately.  Until now it meant little having even seen it on the big screen...twice!  I only wish I couldíve enjoyed it as much then as I do now.  Better late than never.  The movie poster I bought recently has renewed meaning now.  I reluctantly purchased it only because of the significance it held for me.  It was the first big screen movie of Eastwoodís Iíd seen after having become a fan.  My expectations were very high.  I anticipated the release date, watching the movie trailers on tv, reading about it and collecting picture ads from the Boston Globe and Boston Herald newspapers.  There was an article on Eastwood the weekend it opened in one of the Sunday papers, too.  I wish I still had that, I think it was Parade.  Unless my memory is mistaken, I believe it was a Boston Globe supplement.  In 1982 Clint was 52 years of age, a year younger that what I am now.   Iíve pondered with that having anything to do with my renewed interest in Firefox.  I donít think so.  Here I am, 38 years later, apparently having come full circle.  ďPunching in new coordinates.  Iím coming home.Ē 😉

Hi Gant, Iíd say my favorite scene is where Gant (er, ah... the other Gant, that is 😉) steals the Firefox.  Itís a pivotal moment in the film, where the efforts of all involved have paid off.  While heís only just gone airborne and has yet to successfully complete the mission, seeing the expression on Colonel Kontarskyís face as Gant takes off is priceless.

I was going through some DVDs in my closet and saw my Firefox DVD. Might have to watch it sometime.
Great idea 👍🏻

What is your favourite scene in Firefox Jed ?
Wow, thatís a tough one, Gant.  Iíll have to give it some thought.  Iím still surprised Iím loving this film so much.  But, itís a pleasant surprise.

        When I checked out Lady Godiva obviously Eastwood has basically a one line role as a young Saxon and I even noticed his speaking voice was dubbed. Eastwood must had been 25. The movie is horrible and it's even more surprising Maureen O'Hara was in such a stupid movie.
I noticed the same thing about Clintís voice in Away All Boats.

I really like his scenes together with Clarke and Hawthorne...
This is a  very good scene. 

Gant: Supposing I get to liftoff and everything works well, what happens to you?

Baranovich: It doesnít matter.

Gant:  What do you mean, it doesnít matter?  I donít understand why youíre all so willing to die.

Baranovich: I donít expect you to understand.

Gant: Donít you resent those people in London ordering your deaths like this?

Baranovich: Mr. Gant... youíre an American.  Youíre a free man.  Iím not.  There is a difference.  If I resent the men in London who are ordering me to die...then itís a small thing when compared with my resentment...of the KGB.

I always think of the similarities of these images of Clint.

Here he is in Tarantula, 1955:



Similarly in Firefox 1982:



Hereís what seems to be a publicity photo from Le Streghe (The Witches, 1967):



Again in Firefox:

Gant, can I help?  I think I posted pics for you before.  Iím the meantime, I came across a couple of nice ones.  Not sure if theyíve already been posted here but theyíre definitely cool.

5/22/20 update:  Ok, to explain.  When I first compiled this list years ago, there were many ranked 1-3.  Since then, Iíve revisited most and decided with this posting to upgrade them to a 4.  Thatís because he appears so infrequently these days that I appreciate them much more.  Iíll take the bad with the good.  The only one with a 0 that heís appeared in is Paint Your Wagon.  I donít plan on watching that again.

The same goes for the movies he directs but does not star in.  Heíll probably do this with his next project and Iíll go see it on the big screen with an open mind.  Thatís where my interest ends.  While some are better than others, Iíll revisit movies heís starred in instead of the ones he doesnít.  Well, except for the musical. 😎

Iím surprised I havenít seen this before.  For sh*ts & giggles, Iíve updated my ratings. 

The last time I did this was some years ago.  With the passage of time and his appearing on screen much less, Iíve come to appreciate 99% of what heís starred in.  My high expectations of seeing something similar to Dirty Harry or The Man With No Name are long gone.
