           Once read a interview with Andrew Robinson some years back that he was disappointed he never got a chance to work with Eastwood again especially when Eastwood became more prolific as a director.


I decided to watch The Changeling the other night. Haven't seen it in a long time..It's a pretty gripping movie in many aspects and the supporting cast was quite good, but I always felt Jolie was miscast. I would had preferred someone like Jennifer Jason Leigh instead and the movie was just 20 minutes too long. Maybe Eastwood's saddest movie.

         Nah, I'm not too enthusiastic. It's nice to hear Eastwood is doing another movie, but his choice of movies over the past decade have been pretty mediocre and dismal and there hasn't been much of an audience for his films. All of this of what I'm reading about this potential movie is strange. Eastwood is actually writing the script as well?..It's his last movie? and one of the actors will be Toni Collette. If this movie gets done and it has the power of The Verdict it will be a nice welcome, but sorry I just feel times have changed and I just don't see an Eastwood movie being that anticipated by the general masses anymore.....


      For me it was when he starting doing movies with Sondra Locke......

Let's hope Eastwood's next film is not about Clarence Darrow. About 24 people if that many would go see that. I'm not even including the people in the website...

         Ging always worked. I remember seeing him in commercials in the early 70's besides movies or tv.

         Pretty diversified character actor who was a good friend of Eastwood since the late 50's. His familiarity in Eastwood movies were Hang Em' High, Play Misty For Me and High Plains Drifter. I once googled his name and there was photo which looked like from the late 50's with him and his wife and Eastwood and his wife Maggie standing by a pool at a backyard. Ging did a lot of stunt work as well and acting in tv Westerns in those early years and from what I read he was a successful businessman in real estate after retiring from Hollywood years ago.....


   Awesome movie Gant. Caan's best role.


         I remember one of my first posts in the site years ago was I wished Eastwood would had done Thief ( not that he was offered) instead of the movies he was doing in the early 80's ( HonkyTonk Man, Firefox, Sudden Impact) because Thief was a great character vehicle and a great movie and even The Killing Fields he should had done which he turned down....


       I don't think it's really about Eastwood doing another movie ever again anymore even if it's another Bio type film. I think a great deal of it is the political atmosphere that's going on in Hollywood and unfortunately like I've said before Eastwood's movies have not done well at the box office the past decade and don't appeal to today's movie audience. That's a double negative. That's just the reality of things.


If it's another biography....i'll pass....


 Extremely talented director AKA23 and I agree with your analysis about Eastwood not directing ITLOF. Actually, I always wished Eastwood would had worked for Michael Mann who started out in feature films with the great crime noir movie Thief with James Caan.

Im 64 and Paul would come in a far second place.....


         There is no audience anymore for adults with a few exceptions. I love the man, but lets face it his movies have not done well at the box office for over a decade. If I was Eastwood I'd go to France or Japan and make movies. American audiences are pretty lame today as far what sells at the movies and the music industry... The sophistication in this Country is gone forever......

       A few years before he died, you can maybe find it on YouTube Tom Laughlin was interviewed about the Oscar awards from 2013 and Eastwood came up in discussion and he was talking about that movie and how he noticed Eastwood was like a sponge even then learning about directing from William Wellman. Actually the actress who played Eastwood's wife in The Outlaw Josey Wales who gets killed is Cissy Wellman who is William Wellman's daughter...From what I've read William Wellman originally wanted Paul Newman and Eastwood as the leads, but that got rebuffed by the studio heads and instead it went to Tab Hunter and David Janssen.


     The Killers of the Flower Moon was a great book that I urge everyone to read. That's the type of movie Eastwood should be doing, not Cry Macho which the WB exec has a 100% valid point.


Whats a professional review?.....gimme a break....
