        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 Clint’s 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 doesn’t matter.

Gant:  What do you mean, it doesn’t matter?  I don’t understand why you’re all so willing to die.

Baranovich: I don’t expect you to understand.

Gant: Don’t you resent those people in London ordering your deaths like this?

Baranovich: Mr. Gant... you’re an American.  You’re a free man.  I’m not.  There is a difference.  If I resent the men in London who are ordering me to die...then it’s 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:



Here’s 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.  I’m the meantime, I came across a couple of nice ones.  Not sure if they’ve already been posted here but they’re 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, I’ve revisited most and decided with this posting to upgrade them to a 4.  That’s because he appears so infrequently these days that I appreciate them much more.  I’ll take the bad with the good.  The only one with a 0 that he’s appeared in is Paint Your Wagon.  I don’t plan on watching that again.

The same goes for the movies he directs but does not star in.  He’ll probably do this with his next project and I’ll go see it on the big screen with an open mind.  That’s where my interest ends.  While some are better than others, I’ll revisit movies he’s starred in instead of the ones he doesn’t.  Well, except for the musical. 😎

I’m surprised I haven’t seen this before.  For sh*ts & giggles, I’ve 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, I’ve come to appreciate 99% of what he’s starred in.  My high expectations of seeing something similar to Dirty Harry or The Man With No Name are long gone.

Off-Topic Discussion / Movies I have watched this week

Antwone Fisher (2002)

I had trouble sleeping last night and came across this.  Very good and entertaining.  Great acting by all involved.  My first time seeing it and reinforces my opinion that Denzel Washington is the greatest actor.

General Discussion / What was the last Eastwood film you watched?
« on: May 20, 2020, 12:28:42 PM »
Pink Cadillac

I watched this yesterday.  One of my least favorites but hell, Clint’s in it and these days that’s good enough for me.  I’d love to see him work with Bernadette Peters again.  Maybe not a comedy, though.  It was fun spotting a lot of names in here, actors Clint had worked with before and would again.  Bryan Adams has a small part as a gas station attendant.  I’d forgotten about James Cromwell, who’d go in to star in Space Cowboys with Clint.  I’d also forgotten about Paul Benjamin, who’d been in Escape From Alcatraz.  Jim Carrey works with Clint for a second time but in a much smaller role here.  I believe this was Frances Fishers’ first appearance with Clint and also did very well with Unforgiven and True Crime.  I did remember Geoffrey Lewis being in this, a regular in a number of Clint’s films.  I laughed at myself thinking, “Wouldn’t it be cool if Bill McKinney was in this, too?” Minutes later, Eastwood’s character walks into a bar...and McKinney is the bartender!  I’d recently seen this movie just last year, too!  Never leaves a strong impression but I enjoyed seeing it again.  Dan Blocker’s son, Dirk, is in this movie, too.  I didn’t realize it was him until I saw his name in the credits. 

Clint’s character is a little goofy at times and that’s probably a hard pill to swallow.  Hell, at least he tried.  The antagonizer wasn’t intimidating and that was a big mistake.  The dude was short!  Same problem in The Dead Pool. 

So, it was fun sitting through another home-screening of Pink Cadillac.  I’m not sure what I’ll watch when the big man’s birthday rolls around later this month.

How could I forget?.... Yoko Ono!

Man!  Just no artistic, entertainment value whatsoever.  Not one iota!  Just completely horrible.  I can’t tolerate anything by her.  It’s a struggle listening to her & John Lennon’s “Sunday Bloody Sunday” recording.

Yes, KC, you hit the proverbial nail on the head.  Nicholas celebrated his 13th birthday this past Sunday. 🙂

Diana set up a “social distancing” celebration for him for family and friends to stop by and wish him a Happy Birthday.  I worked it out so that I’d have time to see him and Nina before that got underway. 

After opening his cards and gifts, I shared stories of the time he was born and when he was an infant.  I also shared stories of the year I turned 13, celebrating whilst at Massachusetts General Hospital due to fighting off Spinal Meningitis.

We also shot some hoops and kicked around a soccer ball a little.  Fortunately, the weather was beautiful and it was a very nice visit.  Below are images taken from that day.

...And now, back to our regularly scheduled topic.  😉

Thank you so much, KC, for remembering.  That’s very nice if you. 🙂
