Anyone know why Eastwoods movies tend to prominently have the name Frank?

- Frank Horrigan, in the line of fire
- Frankie Dunn, Million Dollar baby
- Frank Corvin, space Cowboys
- Frank Morris, escape from alcatraz
- Seth Frank, Ed Harris in absolute power
- Frank the biker, everywhich way you can

It's a common name, so it's not too surprising that there are several over the course of Clint's long career. I believe all the ones you mentioned were in the respective screenplay when Clint first became involved in the project. Frankie Dunn is the character's name in the stories the film is based on, and Frank Morris, of course, was a real person.

Interesting question. And welcome to the Clint Eastwood Web Board!

I have to say. I have thought of this same question many times while watching his ovies with the name Frank in them. I just wondering if it's cause of a more personal meaning he keeps usng it.

I noticed the name come up a lot in his films, too.

There's a lot of Sara(h)'s too.
