I think the series was only in black and white, not primarily. But thanks for starting the thread. It would be nice to have some detailed commentary on Clint's only starring role in a TV series.

Thank you!I'll PM Gant, just in case he misses it here. :)

Hey Matt, have you got more of these? :D

Gant has lost his av (of Gant, naturally enough), and this site doesn't seem to offer any "native" avatars any more.

AKA, you are sure that it was released in 4K?

Hi Gary, I think most of us here are now using Imgur for image hosting: It's free and quite painless.

If you have any trouble, I can host the photos for you on my Imgur account.

Enjoy, Gant! 8)

There's another screening on May 18. Details here: BFI Link

Big screen classics
The Outlaw Josey Wales

Farmer Josey Wales (Eastwood) decides to hunt down the friend he believes betrayed him…

Having joined Confederate guerrillas after his family was massacred at the end of the Civil War, former farmer Josey Wales (Eastwood) decides to hunt down the friend he believes betrayed him. However, as he inadvertently gathers a motley surrogate family of strays on his travels, his thirst for revenge diminishes. Clint Eastwood delivers a marvelous western that journeys through a harsh landscape to somewhere altogether more forgiving.

That one-sentence summary at the beginning is a little ... odd. ???

Ooh, that would be fun. (And I need to update the News on this site.)

I seem to have lost my "Gant" pic....

You don't seem to have an avatar selected in your profile. Do you remember what the pic was?

Another story about this potential project was posted here:

Clint Eastwood Aims to Direct Film About 1996 Atlanta Olympics' Security Guard, ‘The Ballad of Richard Jewell’.

Thanks for restarting this thread, AKA.

Looks like he also worked on Sully as a set dresser

And he was "on set dresser" on Battlecreek (2017), Alison Eastwood's second film as director. Anybody catch that one?

Clint also says that he first learned about Leo Sharp from an article he read. It seems from his answer that the article led him to be intrigued about the story, which caused him to discover that a script for a movie version of Sharp's story existed. I could be wrong, but that's the impression I got after reading his answer, and to me, that's new information.

I think you may be on to something. Here's the quote from the interview:

Is there a role out there you really want?

No. I mean I don't know what it is. I'm sure there are but I don't know offhand. I have no idea what it is. And it's more fun that way. For "The Mule", I read the article thinking it was a good thing, and the writer wrote this thing. And I thought, "OK let's try that."

And here is a quote from the journalist who wrote the "article":

Even with all my reporting, I couldn’t fully tell you what motivated Mr. Sharp. I don’t think anyone could, not even Leo Sharp himself.

That’s where Hollywood stepped in. Movie producers read my article, saw a spark and eventually sent it to Nick Schenk, a gifted screenwriter. From there, Mr. Schenk ran with it on his own, inventing an elaborate back story for the elderly drug mule, complete with a resentful daughter, a guilty conscience and a predilection for pecan pie. Fiction filled in the spaces where journalism could not go.

And guess what? When Schenk was hired, a guy named Ruben Fleischer was already attached to direct:
After helping Robert Duvall earn his latest Oscar nomination for “The Judge,” screenwriter Nick Schenk has been hired by to adapt Sam Dolnick’s New York Times Magazine article “The Sinaloa Cartel’s 90-Year-Old Drug Mule” for Imperative Entertainment, TheWrap has learned.

Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”) is attached to direct the film, which will follow Leo Sharp, an award-winning horticulturist who secretly spent years working as one of the most trusted drug courier for Mexico’s powerful Sinaloa cartel. Sharp was 87 when he was arrested in 2011 for transporting hundreds of kilos of cocaine to drug dealers in and around Detroit.

It's been very quiet here on the board for about a week. Only about 5 or 6 posts all week. :(

Yeah, I've noticed. I guess the excitement over The Mule has died down.

The most photogenic bird in New York since the Central Park Mandarin Duck ... the Bryant Park American Woodcock.

Bryant Park is the large green space in Midtown Manhattan just behind the Library. I shot these on my lunch hour today. It was his lunch hour also! (They eat worms.)

Why did the woodcock cross the road?

I'm told they are migrating, resting here briefly and will continue on north.  :)

Christopher's post in the movies I've watched this week topic about renting dvds reminded me of this article a few weeks back.

Related: the New York Times ran a story about what is now the last extant Blockbuster store ... in Bend, Oregon.
