What are your top 5 Clint Eastwood movies that he's acted in that's not a western and not a Dirty Harry?

I have not seen all of Clint's movies he's acted in but here's mine:  Please put them in order of your fav 1 being the best and 5 being the least out of the 5.

1.  Gran Torino
2.  In The Line of Fire
3.  Million Dollar Baby
4.  Any Which Way You Can
5.  Every Which Way But Loose

I have heard good things about Thunderbolt and Lightfoot and Play Misty For Me.  So mine are subject to changing.

This is a bit of a toughie for me, seeing as how I have not yet viewed the majority of the eligible films. I will respond here and now and as i add to my viewed list, I may post a later changed response.


1. The Eiger Sanction....This film has impressed me so intensely that it will almost certainly stay here.

2. Play Misty For Me......Same as Eiger, probably will not change.

3. Gran Torino..............Clint could easily have won the Actor Oscar. Same as Eiger and Misty.

4. Honky Tonk Man........This is a really good period piece. It sent me through the time machine to the Depression Era of my childhood.

5. Coogans Bluff...........Hey man, Clint is riding my motorcycle from the halcyon days of my youth. Its good other ways too.  8)


Firefox, Kellys Heroes, Bronco Billy, The chimpanzee Which Way films,  Heartbreak Ridge, and Paint Your Wagon are being mulled over. There is controversy over whether PYW should be considered a Western, and for convenience I am considering it , so far, to be a Western and therefore not a candidate. I saw it once upon a time during its original release run and very greatly enjoyed it.

I'm in the same boat as you.  I also have not seen all of Eastwood's non western/non Dirty Harry movies either.  Mine are also subject to change as well.  I had just finished watching both EWWBL and AWWYC movies when I decided to post this topic.  It was difficult for me because I have seen The Beguiled and Trouble with the curve which for me right now very easily could replace both which way movies.  But I thoroughly enjoyed both which way movies so they made my top five list.  And I'm currently working on trying to watch all of Clint's movies that I've never seen before.  I've heard great things about Play Misty for me and Thunderbolt and Lightfoot.  And there's several others that I still need to watch then I can make a more accurate decision on my top five list.  But it is extremely hard because I do like The Beguiled and TWTC very much.  So after I watch the majority of Clint's films I will really have to think very hard on this and then update my top five list.  It really comes down to what you like and what makes you happy.  And everybody's different.  Like for me I just got done watching Escape from Alcatraz and really enjoyed it a lot.  It was very suspenseful and entertaining.  But I know right away that it's not going to be in my top five list.  Due to the fact that I'm not really into prison type movies.  I also have Lock Up starring Sylvester Stallone and it is a good movie but its not in my top ten fav Stallone movies.  So I'm looking forward to seeing more of Clint's movies like the ones mentioned earlier and several others.

The times they are a-changing.....quoth the Zimmerman...

OK, viewed The Beguiled and now somethings got to give....

New Revised Updated List Of 5 Best:


1. The Eiger Sanction....This film has impressed me so intensely that it will almost certainly stay here.

2. The Beguiled.............Unbelievable that this film has not gotten more acclaim.

3.  Play Misty For Me......Same as Eiger, probably will not change. Not change? Guess again, TMWNA!

4. Gran Torino..............Clint could easily have won the Actor Oscar. Same as Eiger and Misty.

5. Honky Tonk Man........This is a really good period piece. It sent me through the time machine to the Depression Era of my childhood.

6. Coogans Bluff...........Hey man, Clint is riding my motorcycle from the halcyon days of my youth. Its good other ways too.  8)

Huh? top 5? In all the excitement I lost count myself.

Yes! Part of the wonderfulness of communicating on a forum is the ability to get acquainted with ones fellow humans. And a good way to do that is to compare likes and dislikes. So I took the meaning of this thread to be an opportunity to say which films I LIKE and to read the interesting opinions of my fellow humans about which films YOU LIKE.

Neither one of is right and neither one is wrong. It is just a nifty way to get acquainted with someone that we otherwise most likely never would and never will meet in person.

Its that social instinct thing.

This is a great topic! Perry, I am a bit surprised by your list. I must admit that I've never seen "The Witches" or "Tarantula," but I'm surprised to see these early roles on your top 5 list. What was it about these particular Eastwood parts that make them among your favorites?

Since Eastwood has virtually no screen time Tarantula, and when we do see him his face is hidden by a mask, and it's almost certainly not his voice we hear ... I have a feeling Perry may be pulling our legs with that one.

Possibly The Witches, too, though there is no accounting for tastes.

I'm curious to hear his answer, though.

I have The Witches DVD. Having watched it a few times I am always left feeling uncomfortable that Clint agreed to be in it. It certainly is not on any short list of mine unless it is movies that make me squirm.  :-[

I know that but I still squirm when Clint dances on catwalk and when he leaps above the bed and the film stops.  :D
