Eastwood News / Re:Clint talks to Jonathon Ross
« on: October 15, 2003, 03:43:41 PM »
Evening all!
Had a reply from the film 2003 office today:
Thanks for your email, I should be putting the broadcast Clint Eastwood
interview up on our website within the next week, (hopefully in the next
day or two, we have just launched a new website design so things are not
as immediate as usual!).

What went out on the TV show was actually the full interview with Clint.
The film company only gave the programme 10 minutes with him, although
of course the show would have liked to do a fuller interview.

 So there won't be any extras online, but at least it will be good  to
be able to see it again.

I'll try to email you once it is live but otherwise you should be able
to find it via

Best wishes,

Jen Foley
BBCi Films website

I'm not surprised really..

Thanks Brendan, nice shot of Clint and Sean Penn together.
Are these from the MR EPK?

think I really did have a little too much to drink last night :-[

OK, I would go for the whole Jerry Fielding score for Josey Wales, powerful, moving, hundreds of strings just let loose upon the studio! The complete score (unofficial version) is simply a masterpiece.
right, where's m'coffee mug ::)

 ;) Some thirty years on I'd have to say Lalo's theme to Magnum Force, followed by his theme to Dirty Harry, they're still kick ass themes.

Brendan, it's also a good idea to ask for a acid free backing, behind the poster, and if you want to go the extra yard, a non reflective glass for the front, and if possible, wall mount it away from direct sunlight. ;)

Ok, first Brendan, nothing wrong with matting the poster, has the advantage also of covering up any wear to the poster edges, and 27x40 confirms that it should be a 1 sheet.. go for it! ;)

Matt, sorry man, I get ya.. ;D
Right that is a European poster, which I think is on Matt paper, not gloss, second it is done from an original oil painting (the original poster painting) and a great painting it is to.
The Linen can have a slight effect to the poster in it's texture ( I think that's the word we are looking for here?) Obviously if the paper of the poster is thinner, the linen process can effect the texture, which is probably what it has done here, probably even enhanced it to some degree, I have not seen a Linen backed poster (close up) in the flesh for a little while now, the last one I saw was with Philo on Tuesday before the NFT, we looked around all the old haunts and poster shops etc where we saw the DIRTY HARRY / MAGNUM FORCE DOUBLE BILL U.S 1 SHEET, the one sheets as you know, are quite smooth and glossy (and I'm not talking about my inner thigh ;D) but that particular poster looked to maintain it's glossy smooth finish...
A lot of the European posters are often on rather thin paper, so I would say probably yes, the linen process more than likely gave your poster a slight textured finish. Looks a beauty mate.. (also like my inner thigh ;D :D).
Am I helping?

You don't get nothing in this world unless you ask Lilly ;)
Hope we hear something. Good job!

Yeah, I thought it may be Canadian...
Well, it sounds like an original 1 sheet, which was probably issued rolled to begin with.
I would surgest just having it framed mate.
If it is the same dimensions as an American one sheet, it at least gives you the chance to change posters as and when you please..

"14A Adult Accompianment"
a US rating?

Yeh it sounds like an original 1 sheet to me Brendan, that sounds like it was actually diplayed in the theatre. Where did you obtain it from?
I'm guessing it's rolled ? Without any fold lines, unless the guy that had it originally after the display folded it..

 ;D.. sorry, Am I making sense?  ;D ;D ;D ::)

It's a great look.  As you said about the fold lines... I could only find them on very close inspection.  

Sure, that's what I'm saying Bruv.
You can see them slightly. But absolutely pointless if say an A Perfect World is rolled in the first place, firstly it's never going to be worth that much in terms of Poster titles, and it really wouldn't look that different if it was linen backed or simply framed in a good frame.. I'm I making sense, or have I had too many vodkas tonight? ;)

Lilly, I've also just sent a long e-mail to the film 2003 office, explaining that it was an opportunity, not used to it's fullest potential etc etc etc.
I've explained that I actually work there, in the hope that it may prompt a response.

hmm, the other thing that really gets me is, it is simply followed by a feature film? Why not make it a film 2003 Special? I'm making an educated guess here, but I would not be suprised if the whole interview was no more than 20 mins. Yes, they should have shown it in full, you're right, it isn't every day you have Clint in a chair, in a studio...

Can you let me know how you get on Lilly, regarding the NFT hunt, don't forget the whole interview was also filmed by them for their Archives?
PS Good Luck.

Funny enough, this is the even harder to find design, known as a half sheet, the size Matt is after is the US 1 sheet.

Please, whoever is talking about Laminating a poster...
Please don't, I'm just glad I was sitting down when I read that.. ;)

The only way to really protect or preserve a poster and adds value to the poster is to have it linen backed, which should be carried out by professionals, with A PERFECT WORLD poster, I'm guessing this would be already rolled (not folded) as this is how the original 1 sheet (if you have the 1 sheet) would have been issued, therefore there is really no need to have it linen backed ???
Linen backing really comes into play when a poster has been folded (as originally issued) back in the mid 80's and before.
Linen backing, does not totally turn the fold lines invisible, they still can be seen, but the overall finish is much more pleasing to the eye. The procedure does not come cheap, and if I could give you some advise, hardly worth having done to a poster such as A Perfect World, the cost of this title poster would probably never reach the price of having it Linen backed... that's just an honest and experienced tip.
You will always find an A Perfect World poster rolled..
Also having it Linen backed would also leave you with an inch or so of extra border, so this would have to be taken into account when having it framed.
If you do have a rolled A Perfect World poster, simply have it framed as it is, I wouldn't want you to find you have needlessly splashed out more money than you really have to.

Agreed, the teaser clip was a delight, why didn't they leave it in??? ::)
I'd like to get my hands on the entire interview, the whole thing looked very very relaxed.

I thought that was a harmless little interview :)
Clint looked very relaxed, and a fun little story at the end that Clyde now hangs out with the golfing community in Las Vegas ;D
Nice stuff.

Eastwood News / Ennio Morricone 75th Birthday Concert!
« on: October 13, 2003, 06:29:55 PM »
Just thought I would let all UK members know (although everyone at the NFT last Tuesday, may have got a flyer) that Ennio Morricone Will be celebrating his 75th Birthday with a concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London on Monday, November 10th, Tickets range from £13.50 - £58.50. Morricone, famous for his Musical scores from A Fistful of Dollars, For a few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad and The Ugly and In the line of Fire will be conducting The Rome Symphony Orchestra along with the Crouch End Chorus, that stunning Choral section of The Mission springs straight to mind..
A combined musical force of approx 200 people will be on stage for this one off Special Night! Before the concert, there will be a documentary film about the man and his career! :D
Tickets can be obtained on line or by telephone 020 7589 8212 (box office hours 9am - 9pm) A friend of mine rang me tonight, and simply said, You and Deb are both coming! Now that's what I call a nice present!
Hope some of the Board members can make it, I'll think it will be a night to remember!

You'll also remember it has one of the most beautiful themes from Ennio Morricone, wild and wacky, but very addictive! ;)
