Eastwood has said in interviews that he prefers not to do commentary for his films, because the film should speak for itself.

Ok fair enough, I wasn't aware of this.

Thanks.

Seen this film many times and still love it. All the cast were brilliant, and it was obvious to see that there was a great chemistry between Eastwood & Bridges. This underrated movie is one of my all time favourites...only Dirty Harry, Play Misty For Me and Good The Bad & The Ugly rank higher.

1970s without a shadow of a doubt. He was at his absolute peak, and some of his best and most memorable films were from that period.

It was High Plains Drifter for me when I was around 9 years of age. The only two things that stay in my mind about seeing that movie at that time was the music and the whole town painted red. After seeing this film I never looked back. Eastwood was great in High Plains Drifter btw.

Thunderbolt & Lightfoot. Haven't seen it for 3 or 4 years now so was good to see it again. This film is in my top five greatest Clint Eastwood films. Personally I think it's underrated.

General Discussion / Commentary by Clint Eastwood??

I have just bought the 'Dirty Harry 6 disc collection', and even though I am generally pleased with what extras there are, and that there is commentary included on all 5 Dirty Harry films, there is NO commentary from the great man himself.

Would I right in saying this is the case for all Clint's films that have been released on DVD/Blu-ray?

If so I think it's a great pity. I know that Clint is generally a busy man even into his 80s, or may not like the idea of sitting for 2 hours plus commentating on one of his own movies in a room somewhere.  But I am sure like me there are many of his fans out there who couldn't ask for anything more to get Clint's take on a particular film role, how he got on with his fellow actors etc etc.



What do you all think?

Hope I am not alone on this..

thanks for the warm welcome.

I havent seen Gran Torino yet but hope to do so soon. Is it any good?

I've seen a couple of clips of it and it looks intriguing. Its just sad to see how Clint has aged now.

The Beguild & Play Misty For Me. Both roles that he played ie; (Corporal John McBurney & Dave Garland) were completly different to anything that Eastwood had done before, but managed to pull off both roles with great aplomb! It showed that Eastwood wasn't just adept to the man with no name in Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Westerns, & for once the critics acknowledged his acting skills. In these two films this wasn't the 'Macho Mr. eastwood' instead we got to see the depth and versatility of Clint's acting abilitys but at the same time displayed a more vulnerable side to these two characters alone. Two underrated but important films in Clint's career!

High Plains Drifter.
Haven't seen it in a few years, so it was very enjoyable watching it again!

Hi all,
I'm from the UK and have been a big fan of Clint Eastwood for 30 years now! The very first film i'd seen of his was 'High Plains Drifter' when i was 9 years old. The one thing i remember about that film at that time more than anything else had to be the music that accompanied the film. My favourite Clint Eastwood character has to be of course Harry Callahan hence my username. The Dirty Harry films for me are the ultimate but not far behind is 'play misty for me' and Thunderbolt & Lightfoot. I look forward to looking through many of the threads on this forum and giving some of my own thoughts and opinions of the GREAT man & his many films.          Looks a really 'COOL' forum by the way!
