I'm sure there are plenty of those in all the Dollars trilogy versions - some of them, I think 2004 DVD version of The Good The Bad and The Ugly especially, even got Clint and Eli Wallach re-recording their lines almost 40 years later. I think there's also one scene where Blondie's voiced by prominent voice actor Andre Sogliuzzo - it might be the one when they come across the Union soldiers and Tuco asks Blondie the names of Grant and Lee, but I'm not sure.

Re: Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, thematically, I'm not really sure, since I don't really see another film in Eastwood's filmography that is alike. This is going to sound totally crazy, because they are thematically quite dissimilar films. But, the first movie that came to mind for me was "Blood Work." This is because I thought it would be interesting to compare two versions of the kind of laid back, unambitious, buddy type character that both men portray. Jeff Bridges in Thunderbolt, and to me, the much less successful version portrayed by Jeff Daniels in "Blood Work." I also would have liked to have seen Jeff Bridges in "Blood Work," as I think he would have been a much better fit for the character than Daniels was. He is better able to blend comedy and drama in my opinion, and I think a re-teaming of him with Eastwood decades later would have been interesting and worthwhile to see.

What does everyone else think? Do you see this pairing as working, or not?

Re: White Hunter Black Heart, I'd agree with those who suggested Honkytonk Man/. This is because I tend to think of Eastwood films thematically, and for me, both films are about self-destructive impulses that derail talented men who would otherwise be successful, but who are often stymied in their otherwise productive efforts due to their inability to put aside their obsession in favor of focusing on their work.

A Perfect World didn't come to mind for me, because I think they are thematically quite dissimilar. I do agree that they are both character studies, so in that particular way, there is some commonality between them. Both involve an in depth exploration of both men, their motivations for doing what they do, etc, but A Perfect World doesn't contain the obsessiveness angle that is common to both White Hunter and Honkytonk Man.

I like the idea of the two George Kennedy movies back to back, plus I like both movies. Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is one of my all time favorites, and it's probably the meanest I've ever seen George Kennedy in anything.

Sometimes certain scenes that are available on dvd discs are not shown on tv broadcasts, or vice versa. Has anybody noticed this in your viewings of Eastwood's films ? If yes, which movie ? In tv broadcasts of Any Which Way You Can, the rattler getting shot with a gun is unavailable in the dvd disc, but the rattler death scene can be seen on tv broadcasts in my viewing studies of this film.

Watched Play Misty For Me and noticed a mishap. Scene with Dave Garver and Madge Brenner at restaurant. Demo reel tape description to Madge reads " KMRL " not KRML. Curious if Clint meant for this to appear as such ?

Week 3:  November 30-December 6, 2021

Ok, I?ll post one of my ideas.

Thunderbolt & Lightfoot / The Eiger Sanction

I think this would make for a good double feature.  George Kennedy appeared in both with Clint and I enjoy both characters he played.   I like that they came out back to back as well. 

Do you agree that these two make a good double feature pairing, or no?  Which film would you watch with Thunderbolt & Lightfoot?  How about The Eiger Sanction?
