Since this is now all "official," I've changed the thread title to "Production Information and News." We'll post all updates here until the time comes when the reviews start coming in, and then we'll start a new thread for that. :)

^ Agreed. That cutting around in time could have been very confusing, but wasn't (thanks partly, if I recall right) by the use of intertitles giving the date and place.

I'd almost like to see it a second time, though, to more clearly understand what was going on in some of the early flashbacks.

Thanks for sharing that, SDS! :)

Wow, that's really a good one, AKA! I'll have to think about this. I too hear this (a lot), from one friend in particular with a suppressed sneer in his voice.

May I ask KC.. After being so impressed by Unforgiven.... What was your second Eastwood film. Where did you look next.. ?

Can't remember for sure ... I saw a number of them at a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art the next year. It may have been A Fistful of Dollars. I know I saw that one early on, at least, and it made a deep impression, as did Dirty Harry, also one of my first. Later that year I attended a film series in connection with a course on Clint at the New School, which is how I met the film studies professor who would later invite me to co-edit Clint Eastwood: Interviews.

Even back then I was especially interested in Clint as a director. One of the first of his directorial efforts I saw after Unforgiven was High Plains Drifter. I remember really anticipating it, and it did not disappoint!

OK, how about this? :)

It's very dark green, but definitely green compared with Amy Adams' black jacket.

EDIT: It's definitely woven, not knit. ;)

Yeah, the one in the above screencap could be blue, or blue-green at best.

I have the DVD, so I'll try to get a screencap, but it will have to wait a bit. Later tonight, hopefully.

You are on the right track Gant! It is Trouble with the Curve but I dont think its either of those shirts. Its kind of tough to tell but I think he may wear multiple colors of the same style, one of which looks more green. Or, maybe its lighting and our eyes are playing tricks on us? KC, isnt there another shirt that is more clearly dark green which he also wears?

How about this one? :)

Good job, Gant! I never would have thought of Trouble with the Curve8)

OK, but definitely long-sleeved, right? :)

Knit or broadcloth? :)

I probably shouldn't have thrown out the word "broadcloth." I meant ordinary woven shirt fabric, as opposed to a knit fabric such as is used in polo shirts. Like this:

I should have said "Knit or woven?"

From Wikipedia:

Polo shirts are usually made of knitted cloth (rather than woven cloth),

In the Million Dollar Baby pic, as well as in the Fistful of Dollars pic that AKA already nixed, Clint is wearing a polo shirt. Collared, but short sleeved. And knit, not woven.

But I thought it was long-sleeved, and not a polo-type shirt? ???

Eastwood News / Pierre Rissient, R.I.P.
« on: May 09, 2018, 07:00:14 PM »
Pierre Rissient, the French all-round film maven, whose championing of Clint's career goes all the way back to The Beguiled in 1971, has died. He was 81.

Mr. Rissient filled roles that no one could easily define but that all agreed were vital: scouting movies for Cannes, advising directors, making introductions, cultivating journalists. “A cinema guru,” “an ambassador of film” and “the Cannes-do man” are among the phrases reporters used to describe him.

When Todd McCarthy, a longtime film critic for Variety, made a documentary about him in 2007, he titled it simply “Man of Cinema.”

But he made his real mark in promotion, working in that business during the 1960s and ’70s with Mr. Tavernier. They were not the kind who would plug just any movie.

“We were partners during nearly 10 years,” Mr. Tavernier said, “working as freelance press agents. We were only picking films we loved.”

Among the people who caught their eye was Mr. Eastwood, then known mostly from roles in westerns, though he was seeking to broaden his acting résumé with a Civil War drama, Don Siegel’s “The Beguiled,” and was also starting his directing career.

“In 1971, I went to Paris for only the first or second time in my life, with Don Siegel, for the release of ‘The Beguiled,’ ” Mr. Eastwood said by email. “We met these two maniacal publicists, Bertrand Tavernier and Pierre Rissient, who loved the picture and wanted to handle it. They were famous for pinning people up to the wall if they didn’t agree with them about something!”

The relationship Mr. Eastwood formed with Mr. Rissient would be a lasting one. Mr. Rissient’s promotional efforts gave Mr. Eastwood considerable cachet in France, which in turn elevated his career in the United States.

Awwwwwwwwwwwww! :)

Have to add a shout-out to Sylvie, who, like Holden, is one of the relatively few Board members I've actually met, and a most pleasant time we had that afternoon, too.

Joyeux anniversaire, Sylvie! :)

It's Holden Pike's birthday today ... he hasn't been around here in a long time, and I miss him.

Wherever you are ... I hope you had a great day today, Holden! 8)

Edit: I have to add Holden's old signature to go with that pic ...

"We're not gonna get rid of anybody. We're gonna stick together, just like it used to be. When you side with a man you stay with him, and if you can't do that you're like some animal, you're finished. We're all finished."


Gran Torino
Dirty Harry
The Outlaw Josey Wales

I cant see any new viewer who would prefer Unforgiven over TOJW and the Leone Trilogy.
It was the film that hooked me, and I've never found one of Clint's I liked better, or that moved me more.

But good choices, Perry. :)
