1967: Eastwood plots schedule
A look back at the legendary filmmaker


July 26, 1967
GOOD MORNING: Clint Eastwood is plotting his next year-and-a-half in civvies. He inked a U-pact for contemporary "Coogan's Bluff." He's currently outdoors in "Hang 'Em High" (UA) and anxious for a wardrobe change after 250 hours of "Rawhide." And three westerns abroad ... Incidentally he reveals "The Good, the Bad And the Ugly" the third of the foreign-filmed oaters, makes his first (profit) participation. (And needless to say, he hopes for as much success as on "Fistful of Dollars" and "A Few Dollars More.") ... Eastwood, incidentally adds, "I never complain about all those hours of the series, although I felt like it sometimes, but I was tired of reading about other actors complaining. It's funny, they break their necks to get into the business and then spend the rest of the time griping." (2007 update: "Where the hell has the time gone!" Clint Eastwood laughed when I read him my 40-year-old column. "I can't believe I started 54 years ago. I'm still cooking and I still learn something every day and I enjoy keeping active and productive -- and no thought of retiring. ... When I made 'Play Misty For Me' in 1970 I thought, 'If I do OK, maybe I can go back BEHIND the camera. " (It was his first directorial stint). On Oct.15 he starts directing "Changeling" starring Angelina Jolie, a 1928, L.A.-set true story. Will he also write the score? "One thing at a time," he laughed. "Let's shoot it first. " But music remains another of his loves and on Saturday at the 50th anniversary of the Monterey Jazz Festival, Eastwood will receive an honorary doctorate in music from Boston's Berklee College of Music. "I wish I had gone to it," Clint admitted, "I would have loved it, but L.A. City College was as high as I went." He also recently received congrats co-producing PBS' Tony Bennett special, "The Music Never Ends." Clint will again participate in the A&T Pro-Am Pebble Beach golf tourney -- he started playing there with Bing Crosby and is on the board of the foundation. No matter how busy Eastwood is, he reminds me, "My family takes precedence.")

Thats a cool article. It's interesting because last night Bill O'Reilly had Johnny
Crawford from 'The Rifleman " on in the segment TV Icon's and Eastwood's name came up during the interview and Crawford had been on Rawhide I guess in a few episides and O'Reilly asked  " What was it like to work with Eastwood"?  and Crawford  said that Eastwood had told him that he was ' very tired, but was headed to Europe to do a Western." Crawford told O'Reilly that he said to himself " That poor guy.. It's all over for him now"....lmaooooooo

Thanks, Madison!

Although -like everyone else I guess, I had my doubts about this film mainly because it would star Angelina Jolie, I am now really looking forward to it.

I would have loved to see that interview.  My brother and I never missed the Rifleman. 7PM on Fridays, I think, way before Prime Time, I think Rawhide was on Fridays also..
