 A lot of people associated with Eastwood over the years passing away. Robert James Waller who wrote Bridges Of Madison County died a few days ago.

Just watched Where Eagles Dare again on TCM. What a great movie. It's amazing how much actress Mary Ure looks like Sondra Locke and in other scenes looks like Allison Eastwood.

I don't know much about the 4K releases, but it's cool to see they're doing something special for Unforgiven's 25th anniversary. I have the 10th anniversary DVD release. I would love it if they'd show the movie in theaters for its anniversary this year. It'd be a great one to see on the big screen.

I'm curious which out of the three is everyone's favorite. Well, I'd imagine it'd be more between Yojimbo and A Fistful of Dollars. I saw Last Man Standing a long time ago, and it was okay I guess.

Considering where we're discussing this, of course Fistful might have the upper hand. But I remember Yojimbo being a fun movie. But between the two, I'd say A Fistful of Dollars, which is a movie I've grown to appreciate more and more.

I just watched Rope again. I'd seen it years ago, and then just saw where Rawhide had asked if people had seen it earlier in this thread. I think it's a terrific movie.

Matt, you grew up in Philadelphia, right?

How many times has Matt run up those stairs we see in Rocky, I wonder?

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Blu-ray
Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo | 50th Anniversary Edition
Kino Lorber | 1966 | 1 Movie, 2 Cuts | 161 min | Not rated | Summer 2017

Kino Lorber have confirmed that they are preparing a brand new 50th Anniversary Blu-ray edition of director Sergio Leone's classic western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), starring Eli Wallach, Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, Aldo Giuffrè, and Luigi Pistilli. The two-disc set will arrive on the market this summer.

Synopsis: By far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic and stylistically influential western ever mounted, The Good The Bad And The Ugly is an engrossing action shot through with a volatile mix of myth and realism. Clint Eastwood returns as the "Man With No Name," this time teaming with two gunslingers to pursue a cache of $20,000-and letting no one, not even warring factions in a civil war, stand in their way.

From sun-drenched panoramas to bold hard close-ups, exceptional camera work captures the beauty and cruelty of the barren landscape and the hardened characters who stride unwaveringly through it. Forging a vibrant and yet detached style of action that had not been seen before, and has never been matched since, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly shatters the western mold in true Eastwood style.

Unforgiven 4K Blu-ray

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Clint Eastwood's award-winning western Unforgiven (1992) with a brand new 4K Blu-ray release, which will be available for purchase on May 23.

Synopsis: The passage of time continues to confirm the landmark achievement of Unforgiven, quite possibly a great director's finest film. Now, get closer to the legend than ever before with the 20th Anniversary Blu-ray release, featuring the newly restored masterpiece plus a commemorative book with 54 pages of exclusive insights and behind-the-scenes accounts. Winner of 4 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Director (Clint Eastwood), Supporting Actor (Gene Hackman) and Editing (Joel Cox), Unforgiven stars Eastwood and Morgan Freeman as retired outlaws who pick up their gun one last time to collect a bounty. Richard Harris is an ill-fated killer-for-hire, Hackman is a sly lawman of chilling brutality, and "Unforgiven is a classic Western for the ages" (Todd McCarthy, Variety).

Special Features:
Remastered Blu-ray disc
Audio Commentary by Clint Eastwood biographer Richard Schickel
Four Documentaries
Classic Maverick Episode - Duel at Sundown
Original Theatrical Trailer

Matt, you grew up in Philadelphia, right? I also want to ask about what the story is behind the giant clothespin. :o :D

Here's a few shots of Center City Philadelphia:

This is from One Liberty Place's Observation Deck. It's 57 floors up, and the highest point for public access in the city. It was fully enclosed, which I was disappointed by -- the glass was dirty, and the colors usually get messed up when shooting through glass. In this pic, you can see City Hall with the bronze statue of William Penn, the famous PSFS building, and the Ben Franklin Bridge. Everything on the other side of the Delaware River is Camden, NJ.

City Hall with William Penn atop:

The Giant Clothespin, which has been around almost as long as I can remember (built in 1976):

The tallest building in Philly is Comcast Center. I liked how the glass building reflected the smaller more ornate buildings around it:

And finally, my favorite Philly Bridge, the Ben Franklin Bridge, as seen from Penn's Landing:
