Eastwood News / Eastwood's Longtime Cinematographer Bruce Surtees Dies
« on: February 27, 2012, 06:47:30 AM »
Clint Eastwood's longtime collaborator Bruce Surtees has died at the age of 74.

The Oscar-nominated cinematographer passed away last Thursday, according to Variety. No more details about his death were known as WENN went to press.

Surtees was the son of legendary Hollywood cinematographer Robert L. Surtees, who won Oscars for King Solomon's Mines, The Bad and the Beautiful, and the epic Ben Hur, and he is best known for his extensive work with Eastwood.

He made 14 films with the veteran actor/director, including 1971's Dirty Harry, and Eastwood chose Surtees as his director of photography when he made his directorial debut on Play Misty for Me in 1971.

Surtees won an Oscar nomination in 1975 for his work on Bob Fosse's Lenny Bruce biopic Lenny and his other film credits include Risky Business and Beverly Hills Cop. ยป

Eastwood News / New book : conversations with Clint by Kevin Avery
« on: October 24, 2011, 10:04:39 AM »
This one includes Paul Nelson's "lost interviews" with Clint during the period 1979-1983.

Received it yesterday and read it at once.I suggest you buy it as soon as possible.In my humble opinion it's the best book I've read about Clint.
It certainly ain't a biography or a critical approach upon the man and his films but it concludes his vision upon society, filming and other aspects of living {during a certain period of his life of course}.
It also includes unknown (for me ) incidents about the making of some of his earlier filmS.

Once again : BUY IT!!!!!

KC please move it if mentioned previously

When I was a kid at the early 80's my uncle brought me as a gift an LP called "per un pugno...di west" which included themes from GBU{Modenegro's version},FAFOD,the return of Ringo etc.
Among them was a song called OCCHIO per OCCHIO {an eye for an eye}conducted by Morricone and sung by Maurizio Graff.
I later found out that it was deleted from the final duel in FAFDM.
Although I still own the LP can't find a new release including the song nowhere.
Here's the youtube link for both the Italian and English for those who haven't heard it before

General Discussion / Eastwood's curse
« on: September 06, 2009, 08:46:44 AM »
Don't know if this has already been discussed but I always had the curiosity why some of Clint's costars failed to retain their box office status after their collaboration.Here are some examples:
1.Kevin Costner  after A perfect world
2.Burt Reynolds after City Heat
3.Richard Barton after Where eagles dare
4.Shirley Maclaine after Two mules...She managed another hit some 13 years later
5.Charlie Sheen after the Rookie
6.John Malcovic after In the line of fire{not a box office king but a respectable actor ending playing a mutant}

Sorry but ,I couldn't stand.
This will be number 2,after "where eagles dare".

hello everybody,

as I informed through my introduction post I live in Greece.The good thing in my country is that I have the ability to view great European film productions {spaghetti westerns for example}and documentaries like the one I saw once more yesterday about Sergio Leone{including a rare Eastwood interview].Another good thing is that the films unlike most of Europe countries are being  released subtitled.The bad thing is that I'll probably never have the chance to meet Clint in person.But the worst of all happens when you won't to buy an American film other than the recent blockbasters.The market is awful.And that's the reason why I desperately need your help.Although all of Clint's films were released in theatres {except Honkytonk Man/video release 1987}because of my age I haven't seen 1]NEVER SAY GOODBUY 2]THE FIRST TRAVELLING SALESLADY 3]STAR IN THE DUST 4]ESCAPADE IN JAPAN.Does anybody know where I can buy them ?Money or region doesn't bother me.
Please make my day...
