It's just such an awkward number:  24 films. Clint needs to do at least one more so we can get over the 25 hump.  :P

Alright, let's see what my Top 10 will look like:

1.  Unforgiven
2.  The Outlaw Josey Wales
3.  High Plains Drifter
4.  Pale Rider
5.  Gran Torino
6.  A Perfect World
7.  White Hunter, Black Heart
8.  Tightrope
9.  The Gauntlet
10. True Crime

This list is subject to change constantly, as it always does.

He didn't direct Trouble With The Curve at all. Since part of Tightrope was directed by him rather than all and isn't credited director, I am not counting that.

Ah, I'm rusty on my Eastwood trivia -- I'll edit TWTC out of my post above.  On this board, Tightrope is always considered an Eastwood directed film. You don't need to put it on your list, but the rest of us do.

Guess this means Clint needs to direct/act in two more films!  ;)

Here it is in chronological order. There's 11 in the list, because I wouldn't normally include Tightrope either since he's not credited.

That's a good question. ;D  It could be Josey Wales or Unforgiven, but I also really like Misty and Honkytonk Man.
