Eastwood News / Sam Bottoms, R.I.P.

The Actor Sam Bottoms died at age 53 yesterday. Anyone not familiar with him, he was 'Jamie' in The Outlaw Josey Wales' and Leonard James in 'Bronco Billy'. I guess most will remember him as the surfer in 'Apocalypse Now'. Thats a shame.. good actor.

Eastwood News / Eastwood On Charlie Rose
« on: December 20, 2006, 01:54:11 PM »

Eastwood was interviewed on new Charlie Rose show today. Unfortunately, I only caught the last 8 minutes. Needless to say I was pretty bummed. From what I saw Eastwood was the sole Interview. PBS does usually replay these Interviews time to time, but when is hard to say. The 8 minutes I saw was better than the 30 minutes with Larry King.

Off-Topic Discussion / Breakfast With the Arts

 Well, It's Oscar time again, though i have no intention of watching the overrated flicks this year but I was curious If anyone seen this Show on A&E this morning?. I was flicking between the Olympics and saw about the last 3o minutes of this stupidity. I recognized Rex ( Looking For Mr. Goodbar is the best movie ever) Reed, Peter Travers from Rolling Stone. Get this....One female critic from I think Entertinment Weekly says: "George Clooney is the greatest Actor/Director of all time." Even Rex fell on the floor aftt he, heard this.
It's amazing how ignorant no one brought Eastwood's name up. I'm sure there are others you could have, but If they repeat this...you have tyo see it...just for the sheer stupidity and the realization that anyone today can be a movie critic and get paid for  it.

Off-Topic Discussion / Michael Cimino
« on: December 15, 2005, 01:46:57 PM »
HI Gang:
                    I was wondering If Anyone caught or had seen the  Documentary on Cimino and 'Heavens Gate" last weekend?. It was on TRIO on cable. Very Interesting story about that whole bizarre movie. I knew the story, but this was the first time I saw a whole documentary about that whole mess. It's a shame because Cimino is a talented guy and from what i hear he pretty much is  off the map mentally today. I liked his Thunderbolt and loved ' Year Of The Dragon' with Rourke. You would have thought being around Eastwood he would have had a different outcome, though he did win the Oscar with Deer Hunter. Try to seek this   Documentary out..It's  very good.

General Discussion / CLINT WHERE ARE YOU?
« on: December 09, 2005, 01:41:35 PM »


            I don't know about any of you but I kind of wish Clint had something out this month. The past 4 months months I can't believe the stupid movies they have out. Outside of maybe Spielberg's Munich pic thats coming out in a few weeks the films  they have coming out for the holidays are pretty dismal and recycled. Another KING KONG? (i'm sure it will make a billion dollars) Gay Cowboys, Geishas?...Just not into it. The hype is pathetic. I guess I might have a passing interest in the Johnny Cash  movie......

             I guess alot of you all know this, but it's amazing how many actors became  famous and lauded for there work that Eastwood hired or over the past 35 years when they were just starting out. Check this  small sampling.
Liam Neeson= The Dead Pool
Jim Carrey= Dead Pool, Pink Cadillac
Patricia Clarkson: Dead Pool
Tyne Daly: The Enforcer
Donna Mills: Play Misty For Me
Michael Cimino : co writer of Magnum force and  Director Of Thunderbolt & Lightfoot.
Fred Ward: Escape From Alcatraz
Diane Venora: Bird, True Crime
David Soul, Tim Matheson, Robery Urich= Magnum Force
Gary Busey: Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
I know there r many others, but these r the main ones who relly did very well..Alot Of Oscar nominies, Golden Globers and Emmy winners in this group..

General Discussion / Eastwood and the movie The Group
« on: September 17, 2005, 11:12:19 AM »


          Most Eastwood fans probably know that he cast Jessica Walters years later in Misty after seeing her in the movie The Group. This morning was the first time I saw that movie in many many years. It actually came out in 1966. I was a kid when I first saw it on tv. But what i found interesting was Elizabeth Hartman and Hal Holbrookwere in it too, which I didn't realize, so Clint ending up casting  3 actors in from that film. For those  who don't know the two other movies....

Hal Holbrook= Magnum Force
Elizabeth Hartman= The Beguiled

I had read Hartman had committed suicide some years ago. I was sorry to read that..She was a fine actress.

« on: September 04, 2005, 03:46:20 PM »


  Hi guys:
                       Just out of curiosity, anyone ever notice that the Sountracks for Once Upon a Time In the West' and 'Once upon a Time In America' are basically  similiar if not the same?

The Dirty Harry Films / Make My Day Not Clint's
« on: August 30, 2005, 12:58:04 PM »
Hi Guys:
                    i was reading the  favorite " one liners " everyone likes in the Dirty Harry movies, but hate to break this all you ya's, but  " Make My Day" was not  the first movie to have that  uttered. Actually, it was by actor Gary Swanson from a 1982 movie called  Vice Squad. He actually says it to a hoodlum with a gun to the hoodlums head as i recall. This movie starred Season Hubley as well. Some of you might recall her as the  actress who tries to help George C. Scott find his daughter in the movie Hardcore.

General Discussion / John Russell
« on: August 24, 2005, 02:33:29 PM »
Helllooooooo,

 I was just curious. I know John Russell from the tv show Lawman though It was before my time, but it is  obvious Clint thought alot of the obscure actor by putting him in three of his movies, not too mention a big part in Pale Rider. Were they buddies?

General Discussion / Eastwood: Hollywood's #1 Honcho Alltime
« on: August 22, 2005, 02:59:03 PM »
Hi Guys:
                 A few months back I was having a discussion with a few people at work and the topic came up about who was probably the biggest Hollywood star of all time. Some people offered John Wayne, Bogart, Gable and a few others and I offered Eastwood and I told them It's not even close. And the reasons were longevity, diversity, and  If you want to get technical still a Box Office star. Wayne probably comes close, but Eastwood at this point has surpassed him considering Wayne never won a Oscar for directing and If you want to throw Orson Wells into it who did both like Eastwood, he still doesnt compare. The only person who might even someday match Eastwood as far as the diversity is Mel Gibson who has staying power as a actor and has shown to be a terrific director. It was a interesting discussion and I think I might have persuaded a few people , but one guy still though Wayne is #1, but I think thats  the "true american" tag Wayne got, which I always felt was biogus anyway...

Any Thoughts????

General Discussion / Bronco Billy 25 years later
« on: August 22, 2005, 01:31:05 PM »
Hi Guys:
                     It's been awhile since I been on. I had  puter probs, but I did want to write about  something about Bronco Billy. I was in Arizona  in April and watched it again for the first time in 25 years. I didnt like it  then, probably because I wanted Clint to kill people in every movie..hah..but now I get it. It's a truly wonderful movie that really was a throwback era  themed  film. I still was not  thrilled with Sondra Locke, but she actually gave a decent effort in that movie. I think what stuck with me this time was the fact that Clint was changing and I didn't want to accept that. Interesting how in 1980 I hated the movie and all of a sudden I was reading  critics like Andrew Sarris and Rex Reed praising the film. That blew my mind. I wouldnt put up with that..!!..but now that i'm 25 years older and wiser(???), I realize that Clint was moving on and asking us to  accept the fact that everyone does.

General Discussion / Marianna Hill
« on: October 01, 2004, 03:52:50 AM »
Hi Guys:
                Not a major discussion here, but I was wondering If any of you Knew she was a 1st cousin of General Schwarzkopf. Thats actually her last name. I remember seeing a pic of Clint in the late 1980's on a date with her.
Clint always had good taste.

                   P

Hi Guys:
             I recently found a box of old magazines (Downbeat, Rolling Stone),and much to my surprise a Crawdaddy magazine with a great long story on Clint by Robert Ward. This issue came out about the same time the Guantlet was released. It's a great story on him and Ward's intro on Eastwood  as being a college student back in the 60's and being forced to go see The Good The Bad and The Ugly with some friends as a goof, so he went on assorted inebrients and walked out of the theatre virtually stunned at how much he loved the pic and knew right there " this guy Eastwood was one mean mother---- and was the heir to John Wayne." Unfortunately, I have no way of putting that interview story from Crawdaddy on here, but is there a way I can fax it to someone here and it can be put on the website. It's an excellent read even after 27 years.

                thanks, Perry

Hi Guys:

         i was watching Once Upon a Time the other night and I have seen the movie many times and like it alot, but as Much as I see why Leone wanted Eastwood for the Bronson part, I personally could not see Clint blowing the harmonica in various parts of that movie, in fact I find some of that really annoying. I think If Clint would have done that movie i think he would have done it differently. I just could never see Clint sitting in the bar with a harmonica in his mouth when Jason Robards walks in the bar.
