Clint Eastwood Westerns / A Fistful Of Dollars (again)
« on: September 21, 2005, 06:59:36 PM »
I recently watched A Fistful Of Dollars again.  It was very early into viewing where I was thinking to myself (again), "Man, this is a GREAT movie!". 

This western is one of a handful that made a huge impression on me when I first saw it years ago as a teenager.  After seeing it for the first time, I became a fan and wanted more.  Good thing there was!  As much as I enjoy the sequels, this one is my favorite out of the "Leone 3". 

It's great seeing Eastwood's character come back at the end of the film, in a cloud of smoke, to prove Ramon's theory wrong about "the man with the pistol will be a dead man", when meeting up with a man with a rifle.  The look on Ramon's face when he see's "Joe" get up after shooting him is one of the best moments in the film.

I thought I'd take a moment and unashamedly root for my all-time favorite Eastwood movie.

General Discussion / 50 Years & Still Going Strong!
« on: September 09, 2005, 09:06:19 AM »
When a new year comes along, I like to reflect back every 10 years on Clint's career; it's kinda fun.  It's not exactly on my top 10 list of things to do, which is why I'm only getting around to this year's now.  It'll be fun looking at next year, reflecting on '56-'06.

It's been 50 years since Clint joined the movie-making industry.  Each decade has seen him in a movie "on the 5's" with the exception of this year, since he's in production with Flags Of Our Fathers.  Here's a recap:

Revenge Of The Creature
Lady Godiva
Francis In The Navy
Revenge Of The Creature

For A Few Dollars More

The Eiger Sanction

Pale Rider

The Bridges Of Madison County

Flags Of Our Fathers (in production)

I like to compare them to see which I like the best in this particular group.  Hands down, it's For A Few Dollars.  Next for me is Bridges.  I don't care much for Eiger Sanction or Pale Rider and only include his earlier work for historical reasons. 

For A Few Dollars More and The Bridges Of Madison County are both very good, if not great, movies.  They're the ones I like to return to from time to time.  Not so with The Eiger Sanction and Pale Rider, but I know I'll view them again somewhere down the road.

As for Flags Of Our Fathers, I'm predicting this will be a great movie.  As Clint's improving as he goes along, I'm confident it will be.

Eastwood News / Clint in Guinness Records 2006
« on: September 04, 2005, 09:11:15 AM »
I was in Borders Books yesterday and came across the 2006 edition of the Guinness Book Of World Records.  Clint is featured in there as the actor who's won the most academy awards for directing.  I tried to find a link and/or photo on the interenet, but was unsuccessful.  If somebody could, please do so. 

Thanks!  8)

Two Mules For Sister Sara

Hogan:  By the way, Sister, I guess I owe you an apology.  When I was tryin' to get you up the tree there, I...

Sara:  Oh, no apology is necessary, Mr. Hogan.  In emergencies, the Church grants dispensation.  Anyway, it's no sin that you pushed me up the tree with your hands on my ass.

Hogan (surprised):  Where'd you learn that kind of English?

Sara:  What kind?

Hogan:  "Ass."

Sara:  Oh, in the convent.  Sister Harriet taught us different words for different parts of the body.  This part she called the ass.

Hogan:  Where is this Sister Harriet from, anyway?

Sara:  New Orleans.  Why?

Hogan:  I'd sure as hell like to know what she did before she became a nun.

Play Misty For Me

Al:  Well, you know what they always say, my man.

Dave:  No, what?

Al (chuckles): "He who lives by the sword shall die by the sword."

Dave:  Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, huh?

Al:  Later.

Dirty Harry

Man#1: What's in the bag, man?

Man#2:  Screw the bag.

Man#3:  Yeah, just give us the wallet, now.

(Callahan hits one of them in the face with his bag and kicks another in the face.)

Callahan (now pointing his gun at the last man):  You don't listen, do ya, @#!hole?

High Plains Drifter

Jake Ross (approaching from behind, taking his knife out):  I don't remember lending my wagons to be shot up by these goddamned fools out here.

The Stranger:  You know, you're gonna look awfully silly with that knife sticking up your ass.

(Knowing Jake isn't sure what to do, The Stranger takes a gulp of his beer and then puts it down on the bannister.  Then he draws his pistol, shoots the heads off of the 3 dummies in the passing wagon and Mordecai's hat, then holsters it).

The Stranger:  You still here?

Jake Ross:  Ah, no, no, I was ...ah, I was just goin'.

Magnum Force

Callahan:  Say, excuse me, excuse me.  Could you, ah, help us out?

Driver:  Waddya want?

Callahan:  Ah, maybe you could help us, we seem to be lost.  We were looking for the entrance to San Quentin.  You know where that is?

Driver:  It's back there.  Don't you see too good?

Callahan:  Yeah, I see fine.  I just wanted to know whether you knew where San Quentin was.  And you do, don't ya?  @#!hole!

The Eiger Sanction


Student:  If there was anything I could do to get a better grade ...I mean, I-I'd be willing to do anything.  Anything at all, really.

Hemlock:  Do you realize the implications of that offer?  (Student nods yes, smiling.)  Are you busy this evening?

Student:  No.

Hemlock:  You live alone?

Student:  Oh, well, my roommate's gone for the week.

Hemlock:  Then ...go on home, break out the books and study your little ass off.  That's the best way to maintain a "B" average (pats her on the ass as she's leaving).  Oh, ah, don't study it all off.


Jemima:  People don't forget you when your name is Jemima.

Hemlock:  I don't think people would forget you if your name was Alfred.

Jemima:  Goodness me, Dr. Hemlock.  You're not the type of man who tries to pick up stewardesses, are you?

Hemlock:  Not generally.  How'd you know my name?

Jemima:  It's this mystical thing I have with names.  It's a gift from the Dark Continent.  I look at a person very carefully ...and then I concentrate.

Hemlock:  And?

Jemima:  And then I go check his name out on the passenger's list.

Hemlock:  What else do they call you besides Jemimah ...and smart ass?

Jemimah:  Gem, as in jewel.  Ah, fasten your seatbelt, sir.

Hemlock:  Oh, I have no inention of trying to escape.


Hemlock:  Pope, I really don't mind you being an @#!hole, you really can't help that.  But I do mind you lying to me like I was a fool.  Now, you came here with one thought in mind and that was to attach yourself to me so the target would know who I am and what I am.  Now who's gonna perform this sanction if he gets me?  You?

Pope:  Y-Y-You don't think I can handle it-handle it?

Hemlock:  In a locked closet with a grenade.

The Enforcer


Callahan:  If that's all, Captain, then I've got work to do.

McKay:  But not in homicide.

Callahan:  What?

McKay:  You've been transferred to Personnel.

Callahan:  To Personnel? That's for @#!holes!

McKay:  I was in Personnel for 10 years!

Callahan:  Yeah.

McKay:  That's it.  Report tomorrow to the Oral Examining Board, nine o'clock on the dot.


Bressler (talking on the phone):  Ha ha.  Yeah, I think so.  Oh, hi, Harry, I'm just talking to... (Callahan just walked in, then drops a bomb on Bressler's desk) ...Jesus Christ!

Callahan:  Give him my best.

Bressler:  I-I-I'll call ya back! (gets off the phone) 

Callahan:  Don't worry, it's been disarmed by the bomb squad.  But it's definitely the explosive out at the Hamilton Firearms Works.

Bressler:  Oh, Harry, you know there are times I can only stand you as a human being.

Callahan:  What about the punk?

Bressler:  You mean the suspect?

Callahan:  Suspect, my ass.


McKay:  All right, Callahan, button your lip.  That's an order.

Callahan:  Captain, you wanna jerk all these people off you can, but don't do it with me.

McKay:  That's it, Callahan, you just got yourself a 60-day suspension.

Callahan:  Make it 90!

McKay:  180.  Give me your star.

Callahan:  There's a 7-point suppository, Captain.

McKay:  What did you say?

Callahan:  I said stick it in your ass!

The Gauntlet


Blakelock (answering the phone):  Yeah.

Secretary:  Detective Shockley from Vegas, sir.

Blakelock:  Jesus!

Shockley:  I don't give a damn what you heard, I'm telling you what happened and who set me up.  Proof?  Proof against the mob?  Come off of it, sir!  Look, I've got a scorched ass and that's all the proof I need.  I'm standing out here in the middle of nowhere with a witness that you said means nothing to nobody.  And everybody in this goddamn town's shooting at me.  And I'm slightly worried about it, yeah.  Now, you've gotta bring me in.    I'd like an escort.  A convoy of Arizona police to take me and the prisoner back to Phoenix.

Blakelock:  Where and when?

Shockley:  The Arizona border's about an hour away from here.  I'll be riding in a constable's car.  You copy?

Blakelock:  Affirmative.  You'll have your-the escort.  You'll transfer from the-you know-the constable's vehichle to an escort car 60 minutes from now.  Now, can you handle it, or do I have to write it in braille and shove it up your ass? (he then hangs up on Shockley)

Shockley:  Yes, sir.


Shockley(showing gun & badge):  All right, you mother-jumpers, this is a bust!

Bikers in disbelief:  Huh, what?  Is he for real?

Shockley:  All right, everybody up against their bike.  Balls in your pockets.  Come on, come on. 

(One of them swings at him with a chain, but Shockley sees, ducks and kicks him to the ground.  He then points his gun at him).

Biker:  Don't do that man!  Don't-don't-don't-don't....(Shockley shoots the gas tank on the motorcycle) ...Son of a b*$@h!

Shockley:  Now the next Turkey who tries that, I'm gonna shoot him, stuff him, and stick an apple in his ass!  Any takers?  You? You? You? You?


Shockley:  Now look, five minutes after I leave here, Blakelock's gonna hear I'm comin'.  He's gonna try and stop me.  I want you to go to him, give him my route, tell him to clear the streets.  That way no innocent people get killed.

Josephson:  Ben, this is crazy!

Shockley:  And I want you to give him this message.  Tell him I know why he picked me for the job.  Tell him he was wrong.  Tell him I'm comin' for him and I'm gonna nail his ass to the wall.  You hear me?

Every Which Way But Loose

Philo:  All right, Clyde.  You're gonna met a lady now.  Understand?  I want you to handle it.  That means: no spittin', pissin', fartin' or pickin' your ass.  You hear me?  Because if you do, I'll throttle you, understand?

Escape From Alcatraz

Frank:  Whoever named this place "The Rock" wasn't kidding.  Working with those nail clips just doesn't have any grip (he looks at his spoon, then the guard that just passed by, back at his spoon again and then wipes it on his shoe).  Hey, guard.

Guard:  Yeah?

Frank:  Any chance of exchganging this spoon?  This one looks like it's been stickin' in someone's ass.

Sudden Impact

Jennifer:  So, how's police business?

Callahan:  What makes you think I'm a cop?

Jennifer:  I saw the commotion here the other day.  You're either a cop or public enemy number one.

Callahan:  Heh.  Some people might say both.

Jennifer:  Really?  Who?

Callahan:  Oh, bozos with big brass nameplates on their desks and asses the shape of the seat of their chairs.

City Heat


Murpy:  You waiting for them to kill me?

Speer:  They competitors, or did you just have your nose in the wrong ass?

Murphy:  There's plenty left for you, you know.

Speer:  Say when.


Murphy (answering the phone, thinking it's Caroline):  Okay, I'll come over and buff your body and bring a nice glow to your cheeks.

Speer:  And I'll bring a nice foot to your ass.

Murphy:  Who dialled the phone for you, Speer?

Speer:  I've been hearing those rumors again.

Murphy:  Once is a pain in the ass, twice is a bore.

Speer:  Once is all you get, pal.


Murphy:  How are we gonna find Caroline if you keep on shooting the bums that are gonna tell us where she is?

Speer:  We'll get Dub.

Murphy:  Where are we gonna get Dub?

Speer:  Now, where would you go if you had an ass load of buckshot?

Murphy:  Doc Loomis.

Speer:  Now you're thinking.

Murphy:  Listen, don't kill anybody.  Let me say this to you one more time: Do not kill anybody.  Do me a favor, don't save my life anymore.

Speer:  My pleasure.

Heartbreak Ridge


Jake:  You see, if your, ah, pencil wasn't quite so sharp and your eyesight not so clear around here, I could make your lot in the military a lot comfier, not to mention downright rewarding (shows Highway a cigar for enticement).

Highway:  Sargeant, you get that contraband Stogie outta my face, before I shove it so far up your ass you'll have to set fire to your nose to light it.

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Ambush At Cimarron Pass
« on: July 05, 2005, 05:38:23 AM »
Thanks to TiVo, I finally got to see Ambush At Cimarron Pass.  It was on the Western channel July 4 and I watched it today.  Clint said it was one of the worst westerns ever made....I don't disagree.  Still, I liked seeing him at this very early phase of his career.  I believe it was just before Rawhide.  He starts out as a hothead at the beginning of the movie, but comes around before the end.  He delivers the final line, too:
Sometimes you've gotta lose before you finally win.
Sounds like something Josey Wales would say.
...I reckon so.

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Rawhide on the Hallmark channel
« on: April 13, 2005, 01:40:59 PM »
I feel pretty silly because I know it's been stated elsewhere on this board that Rawhide is on the Hallmark channel, but I just found out that we have it!  Duh!  What's even better is we just got TiVo and I set up a season pass for Rawhide.  All I have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy.  I haven't seen Rawhide in years ...since last century!  This will have to do until it's released on dvd.

Questions & Answers / Could someone please translate these?
« on: April 07, 2005, 04:27:57 PM »
Hi there,

I have an Ennio Morricone soundtrack, but don't understand the titles as they are in (I think) Italian.
Could someone please translate each title for me?
They're selections from For A Few Dollars More and A Fistful Of Dollars.  I've written what I believe is the translation next to a few of them, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thank you!  :)

I'm finally down to the last 6 episodes of season 3.  Haven't watched this much since I was a kid and it's been fun.  I've always liked seasons 1 & 2 far better than 3.  Anyone else around crazy enough to pick these up?  Waddya think?

General Discussion / Million Dollar Baby soundtrack
« on: March 22, 2005, 05:23:21 PM »
I just picked up Clint's "Million Dollar Baby" soundtrack on cd and am not disappointed.  Nice jazz touches; definitely better than the "Mystic River" soundtrack.  I've already replayed it a couple of times while at work.  I bet it'll sound great in the car, too.  Anyone else pick this up?  What do you think?

I know it's early yet, but Clint turns 75 next year.  I wonder what kind of media recognition there will be.

The Dirty Harry Films / DH movies quotes

There's three salty looking dudes.

I'd much rather say thanks to a raise.

That's right Simple Simon, check it, see if it's stolen.

Leave my store.


Hey, I gotsta know...

Let my baby go?

Welcome to homicide.



That's all you got to do today, Guzman.

It's getting so you can't even go to the can in peace anymore.

Stone waste of white.

The dirtiest.

Freeze mutha!

I was talking to the dog.

Yeah, well, neither does he.

May I make a suggestion?

« on: July 22, 2004, 04:09:06 PM »
Ok, so much for my Girls! Girls! Girls! poll.  :P No big deal.   8)

So, who's your favorite female singer and why?  

Off-Topic Discussion / Girls! Girls! Girls!
« on: July 18, 2004, 06:22:17 AM »
This one's for my niece.  I'm a fossil-37 yrs.old, she's 18 and we like to talk about music from time to time.  I like comparing the records broken today with those still standing set by rock 'n' roll artists decades ago.  When I was her age, these types of discussions with friends almost always ended in arguments (my brother & I had a never-ending Elvis vs. The Beatles battle....hey, another thread!).  Now it's all fun.  She's seen the majority of these lovely ladies in concerts recently, too.  

These girls are all gorgeous, so this poll isn't a beauty contest.  Out of this group, who's your favorite entertainer and why?  

For me, it boils down to Beyonce and Shakira although Christina has a great voice.  Just in case, I have their last names listed below.  

*NOTE:  I didn't forget Britney Spears, but there isn't room.  If she's your favorite, go ahead and mention her (...or any other 3-syllable/first-name female singer I may have left out).

Beyonce Knowles
Ashanti Douglas
Shakira Ripoll
Aaliyah Haughton
Christina Aguilera
Alicia Keys
Jessica Simpson
Selena Perez

Questions & Answers / Clint Eastwood lookalike
« on: July 04, 2004, 12:51:53 PM »
Does anybody remember an actor from the early 1980s that looked like Clint only was considerably shorter?  I remember seeing him on either a talk show or game show and the resemblence was amazing!  He did a very good impersonation, too.

Any information including this guy's name and even a photo would be appreciated-thanks!  

Questions & Answers / Sudden Impact theme song
« on: July 04, 2004, 09:40:57 AM »
Does anybody know what the woman says at the end of the theme to Sudden Impact?  (There's police-radio chatter at the beginning and end; Clint can be heard at the beginning).

It sounds like this: "6-8, Clint Eastwood, cancel the call..." (I can't make out the rest)

I've always thought she said Clint's name, but heard something similar on Magnum Force.  In MF, a voice came over the police radio and said something that sounded very close to Clint's full name.  I figured in SI it was done as a novelty for Clint fans to pick up on, but after hearing it in MF am unsure.

So, does anybody know what the woman is saying at the end of the Sudden Impact theme?

Mucho gracias!  Jed  ;D
