Hi everyone, I'm Sean & I'm from Scotland. I'm new to these pages but cant wait to get involved.  :)

Clint has been my favourite actor since I was around 15 years old, now I'm 33 so I've been a fan for a while. I love his films more now than ever. Too many to pick a favourite but if pushed I'd probably go for 'Josey Wales'.  :D

I have a big claim to fame, I actually met Clint & got him to sign my copy of 'Dirty Harry' a few years back when he was visiting Scotland to play golf.   ;D  What a day that was.

Cant wait to search the posts & add my input. Speak soon.

Welcome Sean,

Metting Clint, WOW, your the envy of every member (who hasn't met Clint) on the board.  :D

I turned a Clint fan at around 6, when I wayched Dirty Harry with my Dad, I'm 14 now, so I've been a fan for 8 years.

Looking foward to disscussing Clint with you.

Hi There!  :)
 My name is Jason and I live in the UK.Ive been a huge fan of Clint's for well over twenty years.I think it was probably A Fistful Of Dollars that first made me aware of him.Im sure those Westerns mean a lot to all members of the board!  ;D
 Today I watched The Good,The Bad and The Ugly and it took me back twenty years to when I first seen it as a kid of 14.I think over the years Ive always thought of it as a super Western......But it truly is MORE than that.But Im getting off track  ;D  Ive visited this site before and found it great for info and debate but I never joined.But there are two kinds of people in this life...those who pass up an opportunity....and those who join...and today I joined  ;)
 Looking forward to meeting you all

Hello everyone!

I am a new Clint Eastwood fan and I'm so glad I found this community. I had never watched any of Clints westerns until my fiance told me that I had to watch at least one. I grumbled and thought okay fine, just to appease him we rented 'The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly'. Well needless to say I was hooked! I've since watched 'A Fist Full of Dollars', 'For a Few Dollars More', 'Hang Em High' and 'Pale Rider'. I have a few others on my list that I'm looking forward to!

I had always enjoyed Clint in his more recent films like 'Unforgiven', 'Absolute Power', etc. but I feel like I'm seeing him in a whole new light! As a person I always admired his classiness and pleasant personality. I'm so glad to have finally been 'turned on' to his earlier work. I think Clint is a superb actor and quite frankly, his westerns make me feel like he's just the ultimate badass!

 ;D

Welcome, hot_tamale!

Jason, I'm sorry we couldn't get any pictures. I don't think they'd have been allowed anyway, but at any rate, I didn't have a camera with me. But, Eli looked hale and spry.  :)

I grew up in the dark days of Clint.  There was no cable TV in these parts and no Blockbusters , so his movies weren't even around.  This was the Firefox era.  no offense to anyone who like Firefox.  But  Escape From Alcatraz was always on tv and the 2 monkey movies.  Other than that he was just a name.  But then cable tv came and TNT or TBS had a 24 hour Eastwood marathon on the day after Thanksgiving (?)  which they did yearly.  Anyway I happened to get up early and flipped channels just to watch a few minues, and Fistful of Dollars played, then For a Few Dollars More and then The Good the Bad and the Ugly... I was getting tired but they kept coming and I had to keep watching. Nxt was Two Mules for Sister Sara. Wow that was a long day.  I remember having to work on that day one of the following years and set up a TV at work to watch these movies.  Then In the Line of Fire came out in the theaters and was amazing especially since I had spent a day with the secret service on their detail for the president a couple of months before (they really do talk into their pen like devices) and then Unforgiven and then the days of DVD and it was like seeing these movies again for the first time---ah widescreen and no commercials :) thats what they were supposed to look like-they were even BETTER!!!! thats how it all started, who knew these movies existed before cable and the internet :)

Greetings!  I'm Howie and relatively new to this site.  I love it.  I've been a Clint fan since the days of Rawhide (they weren't reruns when I first saw them) and I still watch them on the Hallmark Channel on Saturdays when not I'm working on my honey-do's list.  As for the movies, I used to watch them at the drive in theatre where I grew up.  I would have to go at least twice because I did'nt see all the movie the first time, Ahem, If you know what I mean.  If I need to explain, let me know.  The drive in is still in operation only now I see all the movie the first time!  Anyway, love the site and look forward to man years of enjoyment.

Hi,

i am a big Rawhide fan and that is main interest in coming to this board. but i also enjoyed Firefox because of its interesting (although at times tedious) depiction of the Soviet Union during the cold war. my girlfriend is Russian so this now holds a special fascination for me now and i can appreciate it more.

i also enjoyed In The Line of Fire and thought it was an extremely well made thriller.

i never really liked Clint's spaghetti westerns or got into his Dirty Harry films either. but that is what is good about Clint's career. there is pretty much something for everyone.

thanks to those who administer this website! it looks very nice and is one of the best i have seen.

Howdy all.  It's about time I got around to saying hello to everyone.  I've been busy checking out the topics posted here and creating my own.  This concept is great; sharing ideas & thoughts with other CE fans around the world.  I turned into a die-hard fan the winter before Firefox came out; I'd seen a few of Clint's movies on the big screen with a friend before then; 'Every Which Way But Loose', 'Escape From Alcatraz' & 'Any Which Way You Can' (missed 'Bronco Billy' due to limited release).  I enjoyed those movies but after a good dose of Dirty Harry & 'spaghetti westerns' on tv, I became hooked.  I'm always looking forward to hearing about Clint's next project.  Now I also look forward to hearing from and exchanging thoughts, ideas & laughs with you!

Welcome, Jed! If you want to check out the discussion we had on "your" film last year, you'll find it in the Previous Film Discussions forum. The topics start at the bottom of Page 17, here ...

... and continue for a couple of pages. They are locked now, but if you see anything you'd like to comment on, feel free to quote the topic and post your reply in the Westerns forum.
