General Discussion / The Stars Fell on Henrietta
« on: June 02, 2007, 12:42:14 PM »
I haven't been around in a while, and I'm back with a question. Recently someone told me about "The Stars Fell on Henrietta". I had never heard of it until now. It only grossed about $100k and had a very limited release. I know Eastwood was only involved in producing, but it had Robert Duvall and It was distributed by WB. Whats the story with this movie?

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Arch Stanton
« on: April 09, 2005, 09:14:10 PM »
I was watching the GBU and I wondered if Arch Stanton was somebody that Blondie had known, maybe even killed, and knew where he was buried. It seems to me like a big coincidence that there would be a grave with the name Arch Stanton if Blondie just made it up.

Any thoughts?

General Discussion / Coogan's Bluff DVD Artwork

I remember there was a thread on the artwork used on the CB DVD, I don't like it!  >:(
Does anyone have a link where there are high quality scans of DVD covers? I am hoping to find something like this and put it on the front.

Hi, we'll be back to the politically-correct production of 'The Good, The Bad and The Beauty-Impaired'  ;D ;D ;D

I couldn't stop laughing. This was said on Whose Line Is It Anyway by Colin. For those who watch the show, it was on the game "Greatest Hits".

General Discussion / "Read" Posters
« on: September 05, 2004, 11:06:55 AM »
Anyone know if Clint has done any of those posters that say "READ" in large red letters. Our school library has posters like these all along the walls near the ceiling. The celebrities include Danny Glover, Sean Connery, even Big Bird! So I began to wonder if Clint has done a poster of these, anyone know?

The posters are similiar to this one with Colin Mochrie

One of the bridges was burned and another fire damaged a house used in The Bridges Of Madison County. They were both Arsons, somebody must not like either the book or the movie.  :D

Hey,  :D

 I've recently been looking intoa 5.1 Home Theatre systems for my bedroom TV. I'm looking for something not too overly expensive unlike a Bose(yikes) :o Ssomething no more than $150 I could probably go into $200. I was looking online and saw some good deals at local electronic stores but once again I don't know if the compnay has a good reputation and how well the speakers perform.

I would really love it if Altec Lansing made home theatre speakers. I have their spekers on my computer and they really sound great.

I would appreaciate any help guys, thanks.

Eastwood Settles Suit Over Wife-Beating Claims

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor Clint Eastwood has dropped a libel lawsuit over an unauthorized biography in exchange for the removal of passages from the book, including claims that the "Unforgiven" star beat his wife, attorneys for both sides said on Thursday.    

Eastwood, 74, sued author Patrick McGilligan and St. Martin's Press over "Clint: The Life and Legend" in federal court in San Jose, claiming the book contained false and defamatory statements. The book was previously published in the United Kingdom by HarperCollins.

The offending material included statements by a former associate who said in a tape-recorded interview that he had seen Eastwood abuse his former wife, Maggie Eastwood.

The former associate later recanted the claim and McGilligan and his publisher agreed to remove the statement from future editions, the attorneys said.

Other terms of the settlement were not disclosed due to a confidentiality statement, the attorneys said.

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Josey Wales Set Refurbished in Utah
« on: June 11, 2004, 01:06:05 PM »

Utah Trying to Lure Movie Industry Back


The set for Clint Eastwood's "The Outlaw Josie Wales" has been refurbished for tourists at Frontier Movie Town. The city's film and tourism office doubles as a minimuseum paying homage to the hundreds of Westerns that were shot here decades ago.

And besides being used as a rare commercial site, about the only use the rotting, dilapidated boardwalk and set of the old "Gunsmoke" television show is as a home for rattlesnakes.

It's a far cry from Kanab's heyday, from the 1920s through the 1970s, when television Westerns and about three motion pictures a year were shot in town, bringing hundreds of actors and technicians and giving work to an equal number of Kane County residents.  

To read the rest of the article go       HERE

I should send Mark Thiessen a letter and tell him it is spelled "Josey Wales".  ;)

The Dirty Harry Films / Potrero Hill?
« on: May 01, 2004, 05:26:21 PM »
When the Steve the medic is curing Harry's leg he tells him "We Potrero Hill Boys have to stick together" Is Portrero the Division Harry works at? Or, I was thinking that maybe they were old time friends that grew up together, becuase Potrero is a neighborhood in San Francisco.

I'm guessing this has been discussed before ;)

LOS ANGELES - The city is honoring Ray Charles  for his edifice complex.    

The 13-time Grammy winner's recording studios, built 40 years ago in central Los Angeles, will get official city historic landmark designation during dedication ceremonies Friday at the Washington Boulevard building also housing his offices and RPM International Inc.

Actor Clint Eastwood  will unveil the plaque.

"I love this place," the 73-year-old Charles said. "It's the only home I've truly had for most of my professional career and I would never leave it."

Charles has recorded at Ray Charles Studios for four decades. His upcoming "Ray Charles Duets" was the latest album produced at the facility.

Designed and built by Charles and his longtime manager Joe Adams, RPM and its creators have remained loyal to the neighborhood throughout the area's evolution over the years.

During the early days of construction, the pair would often visit the site, with Adams gently guiding Charles through the skeletal maze of steel and concrete that would become their longtime professional home.
