Eastwood News / Re: Jersey Boys: Production Information and News

I could live without either film but I'd rather see him having a stab at Jersey Boys than A Star Is Born. At least it wouldn't be a 4th generation remake of a classic film.

I read somewhere that your favourite Bond movie tends to be the first one you saw at the cinema.

For me it's true with The Spy Who Loved Me. There may be better Bond movies but this one just does it for me. The pre credit sequence and theme are still my favourites and it also features the beautiful Caroline Munro who has ended up becoming a good friend of mine. For all those reasons it holds a special place in my movie loving heart.

That aside I'm a great fan of Licence To Kill. I thought Dalton was great and it's a shame he didn't get the chance of a few more movies.

ps. My wife thought Lazenby was the best but that could just because she fancied him like mad. :smitten:

That Gauntlet video was great. I think this generation forgets how rare it was to see behind the scenes footage such as this. Check Clint out, running into the fire to save a camera O0

The Gauntlet takes a lot of stick but i love it and always have. This video has just put me in the mood to watch it again. Why oh why aren't these little gems part of DVD/Bluray releases ?

High Plains Drifter hands down. Pale Rider has its moments but it's unoriginal.

Hang Em High & Two Mules are both very entertaining but I feel they are too long and a bit dissjointed. They feel more like a traditional studio movie but not in a good way.

Joe Kidd on the other hand has always felt more like a Clint film if that makes any sense. It has a terrific score and John Saxon in his best "mexican" guise. Add to that, Robert Duvall chewing up the scenery and I find it to be the one out of these three that I can watch time and time again.

I know I'll be in the minority but Joe Kidd for me, by a mile.

" One day, one day there was a fire"  Love it  O0

Now, I really like that one Walt.   O0     Is that scult unique or a very limited edition?

I can`t wait either  ;)  Please post an image when you have it

The DRACULA piece began as a limnted run of 5 but Steve's been getting so much interest he's going to do a few more.

You KNOW I'll be sharing photos of the Harry piece when I have it. It could be some time yet as he's still to finish a few more before he starts. This one is just for me but I'm sure I could convince him to do a few more if the interest is there.

That's a great looking piece Walt,if you like the classics here's Bela Lugosi  as Dracula and Glenn Strange
as the monster both lifesize.

Those are VERY nice !

I was hoping that the idea for this had died out. I can't understand why someone who strives for originality would consider doing a story that's been filmed 3 times. No matter how good or bad it is the finished movie will always be compared to the others.

For my money the Judy Garland film would take some beating so just leave it alone Clint. Retire or pick another project.

That's certainly one of the best sculpts I've seen of Clint. It does look better in the long shot though as the face is just a little off for me. As I said, still one of the best I've seen.

I have a friend who is working on a full colour Dirty Harry bust for me. His previous work has all been horror film related and they are astounding. When I get home I'll post some of his work. He's never attempted Clint before but I have every faith in him. I'll keep the board updated.

From that list High Plains Drifter is my favourite. In fact it's my favourite Clint western. I'm not sure why but everything about it just clicks for me. From the opening credits, the music and the general tone of the film it's one of the most atmospheric westerns I've ever seen.


The Winter Of Frankie Machine is a great book  and isn't a movie.... yet! The character is a bit younger than Clint but it wouldn't take much tinkering to suit the big guy. I think it would be an incredible "swan song" should he option it and play the lead.

This just went up yesterday in our home. We love Christmas and always put the tree up on 1st Dec. Just big kids, all of us !

We got to the Odeon last night.  NO advertising materials anywhere.

I did manage to scrounge a couple of quads for the film (they had obviously no intention of displaying them) from management.

I felt like a youngster again  :-[

I don't think they were expecting it to be a massive success.  Went into the theatre, we were the only two people there.  Just before the film started, five other patrons joined us.  Seven people in total in the whole theatre on the first opening night.  Oh Dear  :o

Had Clint not been in this film, I would not have went near it with a ten foot barge pole.

I did not care about the daughters career or love life, I did not care about Timberlakes character.  Baseball scenes were kind of boring.  Bo Gentry kept reminding me of Kids TV person Mr Tumbles   :D

Mr Tumbles -

However, Eastwood and Adams scenes were very good.  Eastwood and Goodman were also very good together.  Also enjoyed scenes with Lillard and Patrick, they both played good characters.

I tried to spot Palooka but could not see him. (any chance of a screenshot Palooka?)  You were a lot easier to spot in Hereafter !!

I will probably not revisit this film again any time soon, I don't even think I`ll buy the DVD.  Maybe I will catch it again when it come on TV.

I just hope this film will not be Clints swansong.  I cant help but think of Paul Newmans role in Road To Perdition, now that would have been a perfect role for Clint and would have been a great final acting role for him.

Davy Rating - 4 out of 10 (sorry Clint)

No more than I had expected Davy but maybe a bit less. I doubt if I'll be making the trip. It's obvious that Clint was doing a favour for a friend by appearing in this. Let's hope it's not his last in front of the camera. Was the score noticeable?
