I just found out that I did make the final cut of the film - so happy.

I'd imagine if you approached Mr Eastwood carrying a rifle, you might be welcomed with taser.

Might be the early scene of City Heat to which sage is referring? No speakers but definitely a diner and coffee.

Filming should be finished now. Assuming they are on schedule - and Clint is always, at the very least, on schedule.

Thanks guys. This is my 5th time as an extra on a Clint film.

I was privileged to spend a day on set in Paris on Friday.

As always, Clint's sets are a truly wonderful place to be. The crew, although under great pressure because of a special location, were in brilliant form and as friendly as they were efficient.

Clint is still the master. Incredibly energetic and enthusiastic moving around like a 30 year old even with such a long day.

The 3 stars of the movie are just lovely people. Very humble about their actions and clearly thrilled to be making a movie with Clint Eastwood.

We managed to get a couple of pictures at the end of the day and I'll look at posting those later.

Great news. Hopefully this will film in Europe.

Appreciate the thought (ya big palooka), I am happy with idea of people with long experience having a gander.  Unforgiven... doesnt get much better:-), so many great movies for this Oz fan.

Is it the smudginess that makes you pass or  not close to any Clint signing you have ever seen? 

I thought when I bought very free flowing and fast given the crossovers, and it would have been hard for a forger to shape to the curve of the brim that freely.  It is the 'C' that I have picked on starting on the wrong spot. The large lassoo E going through the T  looks so smooth confident and at the right angle for late "Eastwoodie."

Love the photo, and the signature even 60% likely to be Clint is fine for me, looks better in real life than scan.  I will check back with the seller about a signing photo, none offered with sale.

I gotsa know (being a mere punk)

The signature itself looks wrong. Nothing to do with the flow etc of the ink

I'd certainly never describe myself as an "expert". I've just been looking at his signature for many years.

What I can say is the above image is not an autograph I would have bought. Maybe the supplier has an image of it being signed? Which is becoming ever more standard practice these days.

I love the way he is so humble about his films, talking as though people might not know who he is, or seen his movies. Amazing.

Very nice indeed! Costume needs to be distressed and "roughed up" a bit though?

I'm now at least a week behind. PMFM done. The beguiled and Dirty Harry next.

Palooka--Say you had another opportunity to work on an Eastwood film, and you had a choice between acting in a scene with Clint, and having actual dialogue for the movie, or a piece of memorabilia you've really been wanting, what would you choose? If you took the memorabilia, you could still be an extra in the movie, btw, but just not have any lines with Clint.

I think lines with Clint would have to win out. That is there for ever. I'm just a temporary custodian of the props and costumes. I did a scene with Clint in TwtC, and if I never do anything else - I'm more than happy.  It's a great question though.

Matt. What prop or costume would you go for?

Palooka: You said you collect movie props and clothing from Eastwood movies. Is there anything specific you've been looking for and hoping to acquire that would be realistically attainable?

Thanks Matt. A Dirty Harry ID and any one of Clint's western hats would probably do it for me. I do have a few cool pieces in the collection but those would top the list. Clint still has the poncho which would be the ultimate of course.

Although I've been collecting a number of years, nothing really tops actually being in a Clint movie. Turns out I myself, ended up being a prop.

I love Burning Bridges. It often comes up on my playlist in the car. Good old fashioned toe tapper.

Looking forward to watching Kelly's Heroes this weekend. Will watch 2 Mules tonight.

Collecting movie props and costumes is my thing. Clint's in particular.

I'm going to assume you own a similar suit, and not THE suit, but since you've worked with Clint several times, maybe a little clarification? If you own THE suit, we must see pictures!

It's THE suit. Or at least one of them. He would have had a few on set as it gets ripped and distressed during filming.
