I think you'll find it is the link on page one which needs changing KC?
I had to check it out ... just for the sake of the board ::)

At long last, something to report on the new Doc'.
Here's a Synopsis sent to both myself and Philo:


"Go ahead.  Make my day";  Clint Eastwood made the line famous in Sudden Impact (1983), a film he starred in, directed and produced.  In his remarkable career, Eastwood has achieved a level of prestige that few in Hollywood can match.  Highlights from films such as Unforgiven (1992), Dirty Harry ( 1971) and Mystic River (2003), as well as home movies, behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Eastwood, his family and contemporaries such as Quincy Jones, Tim Robbins, Don Rickles, and Laurence Fishburne chronicle the life of actor, director, producer, musician, inn keeper, clothing manufacturer, golfer and former mayor of Carmel, California, Clint Eastwood.

Born on May 31, 1930, Clinton Eastwood Jr. was quickly uprooted from his birthplace of San Francisco as his father, Clinton Sr. desperately sought work during the Great Depression.  In 1940, the Eastwoods settled in Piedmont, California, where Clint worked countless part-time jobs to help support his family.  A handsome 6'4 teenager, he developed a passion for cars and jazz.

In 1951, 20-year-old Eastwood was drafted into the Korean War and sent to basic training in Fort Ord, California.  After befriending an actor at the Army base, Eastwood made the decision to explore the unique profession.  In 1954, with a new wife in tow, Eastwood tested and signed a contract with Universal, who saw promise in the actor's rugged good looks.  After a lackluster beginning, however, Eastwood made the move to CBS in 1959, where he landed the second lead role in the successful western, Rawhide.  

During hiatus and after the cancellation of Rawhide, Eastwood traveled to Italy to star in director Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns, among them the heralded Fistful of Dollars (1964) and The Good, The Bad and the Ugly (1966).  After returning to the States, forming his own production company and fathering two children with his wife Maggie, Eastwood secured a role in Coogan's Bluff (1968), directed by Don Siegel, who became a lifelong mentor.  Eager to take on more responsibility in filmmaking, Clint Eastwood made his directing debut with the 1971 film Play Misty for Me.  Future directorial successes would include the commercial blockbusters Dirty Harry, Every Which Way But Loose (1978) and Sudden Impact.  Though inspired by his professional achievements, Eastwood was unfulfilled by his marriage.  His divorce to Maggie was finalized in 1984.  

Two years later, eager for another challenge and frustrated by the town's bureaucracy, Clint Eastwood became the heralded mayor of Carmel, California.  He entered office as the long-time boyfriend of actress Sondra Locke, but a bitter two-year palimony suit ensued when Eastwood left her for actress Frances Fisher, with whom he fathered a child.

After a string of box-office disappointments, Eastwood emerged victorious with the 1992 hit, Unforgiven.  The film grossed more than $100 million in the U.S. and earned four Academy Awards, including Best Actor and Best Director, both for Clint Eastwood.  The 63-year-old followed up his success with a critically acclaimed performance in 1993's In the Line of Fire.  In 1995, Clint Eastwood married for the second time.  Dina Ruiz, a TV reporter from Salinas, California, captured Eastwood's heart and graciously welcomed his extended family, which also includes a daughter by Fisher, into their life.  The happy couple welcomed their own child, Morgan in 1997.

In October of 2003, Eastwood will release his 24th directing effort, Mystic River, starring Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Kevin Bacon and Laurence Fishburne.  Incorporating his lifelong love of jazz, Eastwood also co-wrote the music for the film, demonstrating that the ambitious entrepreneur shows little signs of slowing his pace.

Highlights include:

·   Rare behind-the-scenes footage of Eastwood directing The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976).
·   Interviews with Clint Eastwood, Dina Eastwood, his children Alison and Kyle, his mother Ruth, director Martin Scorsese, comedian Don Rickles, actors Tim Robbins, Lawrence Fishburne, James Garner, Eli Wallach, Forest Whitaker and music producer and friend Quincy Jones.
·   Rare behind-the-scenes footage from Dirty Harry.
·   Never-before-seen home movies of Clint Eastwood with family and friends from the late 1950s and early 1960s.

CLINT EASTWOOD:  GUT INSTINCT is produced by Prometheus Entertainment and Foxstar Productions in association with Fox Television Studios and A&E Network.

No, I always have thought it was mags! ;)
I think it probably is, just wished I knew for sure..

Did we ever come to find out that track playing in the getaway car at the bank robbery scene, and if so, is it available anywhere i.e on any of the groups/singer's cd releases?

Thanks M

Hi M,
Has that ever been confirmed as Maggie reading the magazine?
Don't get me wrong, I always thought it did look like her, but I did not know if it had been confirmed........... or not such ;)?
You know what I mean ;D

I wouldn't mind if they had a smell to it, authentic smell.. nothing wrong with that...
Blu, What do  they actually intend doing with these timbers?
Do you know their ultimate fate?
Do they intend trashing them?
If they were simply pulling it down, would they not burn :o it on site?
If no-one is actually going to be doing anything with them, why would anyone cause a fuss?
Or is this just a simple case of Red Tape?
Why can't life be so easy ::)

Yep, I'd buy a chunk of it!
I have a great picture of Clint standing on it, it would be nice to have a piece of it mounted within the frame.

I still have the very first "Large Box" VHS of Dirty Harry, I don't seem to remember it being cut at all ???
I may be wrong.

A few more for your lists:
Any which way you can is a cut version
Firefox is the cut version

 ::) The Dead pool should never of happened in the first place, it was simply a payback to Warners for funding one of Clint's personal projects.
Clint didn't want to make another Harry, that was obvious for all to see.

 :-\ We shouldn't have to  :-\
I think we've done enough lately, off our own backs, on our own time, and all in the name of Eastwood.
I think maybe it is time to let some other voices be heard.
As you know, I'm a little tired of it.. :-\
