I thought everyone was wondering if Blondy, Joe and Manco were one in the same, so I thought: let's shed some light on what imdb says.
Not that anyone's dying to know...  ::)

I don't know if someone's already mentioned this, but lo! and behold!

It says Clint's character was called Joe.

This doesn't prove anything but it strikes me as a bit odd.

General Discussion / Re:Sean Penn's performance in Mystic River

I thought Sean Penn's performance was marvellous.
You mean a father can't freak out like that over the murder of his daughter?  It's the most realistic performance I've seen in years!

And the porch scene... Well, there hasn't been any moment during the film where I thought: isn't that a bit too much?
No, it was all excellently realistic in my view.

I understand why you think Hugh looks a bit like Clint, but I can't see it.

I think that's because Clint's got something special (the Look? ugh, there I go again... ::) ), something that makes him Clint, and I've never seen anyone with that certain aspect.

I have sometimes seen the 'look' on someone, though, but it never deserved a capital L.

As soon as you can find someone with the 'Look' (note capital L), I'll agree that he looks like Clint  ;D

Questions & Answers / First scene in City Heat
« on: May 23, 2004, 08:30:25 AM »
In the first scene of City Heat, Clint Eastwood is sitting in a bar and a fight breaks out.
Anyway, on a certain moment the bartender wants to interrupt, but Clint holds his arm and gives him a look that says 'don't'

Now that look is genius.
I tried to find this particular movie still on the internet but couldn't find it.

Is there anyone who did find this particular moment on the internet?

I'd be very grateful if someone did.  ;D

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. 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'.

Well let this be my first post :)

My story as to how I became a Clint fan is very...unusual.

I am a huge fan of Terry Pratchett (anyone knows him?). He writes the Discworld series and one of his characters is Samuel Vimes, the commander of the Watch.
The first novel he appears in is Guards!Guards! and it contains lots of Dirty Harry aspects (sort of parody, but not really. The sign over the police office, for example, is FABRICATI DIEM, PVNC. dog latin for make my day  ;D ).

Vimes appears to have certain Clint Eastwood characteristics. His tendency to look at people until they cringe, for example.  ;D
But I can't really explain, you just have to read it yourself   :)
But I really started to like Vimes and the way he dealt with things, and because he had the Look.

By the way, most people vote for a 55-year old Clint Eastwood to play Vimes if there ever were to be a Discworld movie, so I'm not the only one who thinks they look alike...

Ah well, I thought, let's go and see a Clint Eastwood movie. If he looks really like that, I'm sure I'll like Eastwood as well.

So since then I watched The Rookie, The Deadpool, Sudden Impact, True Crime and City Heat, and I immediately loved him.

The Look, well, the Look in his eyes...gosh.  ::)
I always look for the Look in someone's eyes, but Clint Eastwood's Look is unique.

oh what am I rambling on about...
Oh well, at least I've found some people to whom I can explain this matter  ;D

and i use too many smilies
