Is Clint investing his money in restoring old films from times past? Examples below;

1. "Ride Beyond Vengeance" with Chuck Connors"

2. "Wagon Train" with Denny Miller

3. 'Walking Tall" with Bo Svenson

I can't imagine why Clint would have any interest in restoring those three films, in particular.

However, Clint does contribute to film restoration in general. He is on the Board of Directors of The Film Foundation:

The Foundation's mission statement is as follows:

Quote
The Film Foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 1990 by Martin Scorsese, dedicated to protecting and preserving motion picture history by providing annual support for preservation and restoration projects at the leading film archives. Since its inception, the foundation has been instrumental in raising awareness of the urgent need for film preservation and has helped to save over 545 motion pictures.

In addition, the foundation also creates innovative educational programs such as The Story of Movies, an interdisciplinary curriculum designed to teach students about the cultural, artistic, and historical significance of film.

KC, apparently, you're a stranger to the westerns in Clint's Rawhide days on tv, understandable  :P. The westerns and performers I mentioned were luminaries in Hollywood during Eastwood's time on nationwide television back in the 1950's, but thanks for your input  ^-^ You got me curious though? Why don't you think Eastwood would invest in a fellow actor's tv show if not for the sake of preserving an old buddy's extending cinematic career and their films' life span?  ::) Might be good for business, don't yuh think KC?
