Matt:  If you could see one Eastwood film in the theatre again which one would it be?

I've never seen Unforgiven in the theater, or The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Can I see them both?

Since the answer is probably "no", I'll go with GBU.  But how amazing would a double feature be?


I know Im a late bloomer.  But when I was a kid My parents never took me to see an Eastwood movie at the theatre.

Wow, that was fairly recent.  You're like... mid 30's right? Or am I way off?

Let's see....  My tags:

Rawhide7:  You win a poetry contest (just go with it) and get to meet Clint. Your choice for your dream guy-date:  1)  A 60 minute workout session with Clint at his private gym; 2)  60 minutes as his assistant director (you just sit next to him and maybe give your opinions on the takes) on the set of Sully; or 3)  Have dinner with him at the Hogsbreath Inn.  Which do you choose?

Schofield Kid:  You and Carmel are in Carmel, and you see Clint on the beach, reading. Do you approach him, or do you leave him alone?

Christopher:  Staying with my question I asked SK.  What are your top three least favorite Eastwood films he's acted in and why?

Jed Cooper:  If you could get one autograph from Clint what would you have him sign?  Like a particular movie poster, baseball, boxing glove, picture, etc.

Good question.  If I had such an item in my possession, I'd request Clint to sign a prop from one of his Leone westerns or first three Dirty Harry movies, since those six films are among my favorites.  More realistically, I'd ask that he autograph the teaser poster from Unforgiven. 

Ok, same tag for AKA23 and Schofield Kid:

Great question Matt!  I took s little time to think that one thru. While I would love to do all three. Because I love working out, eating, and getting to see Clint work up close and personal. But since I can only choose one I would choose the work out session. I would be too nervous sitting at a table eating with him. Working out with him allows me to burn off some nervous energy plus I've always wanted to see what Clint does excercise wise. And being on set of one of his movies and watching him work would be cool. But I feel like I wouldn't really get a chance to talk with him personally since he would be focused on his work.

KC:  what is your favorite non western and non Dirty Harry Eastwood movie?

I'll go with the iconic pink cadillac, obviously tied to the Elvis legend and the first car he gave his mom.

In all honesty I'd probably be very hesitant to bother Clint, if he's on the beach just relaxing. But Carmel would be pushing me saying, "Go on, it may be your only ever chance."


Schofield Kid:

I don't see much TV these days but I would have loved to have seen Clint play a relative of Mark Harmon in NCIS, Harmon's character Gibbs is a tough as nails ex marine and Clint could have played an uncle or some relation to see where Gibbs gets his toughness from.

This is a good question! There isn't any current show on TV that I watch that I think Clint would be a good fit for. However, I'd love to have seen him in two older series. The first is "Columbo," and the second is "House M.D." I would have loved to have seen him in a battle of wits against Peter Falk's Columbo as one of the murderers. Some of the villains in "Columbo" were quite charismatic and cunning, and many were quite likable. I don't really see him as being a good fit for a classic villain. I couldn't see him portraying a Bond villain, for example, but I think that Columbo's brand of villain would have been a really interesting role for Clint to portray. I would also have really loved to have seen him play Dr. House's father in "House M.D." "House" is one of my favorite shows. Hugh Laurie spoke in interviews about his wanting Clint to play his Dad, and I think he would have been a great fit for that role. Depending on how it was written, it also might have been intriguing to see him portray Jack Bauer's Dad in "24!"   

Does anyone know if he was ever approached to guest star in a major television series after "Rawhide?"

He did an episode of Mr. Ed years before he made it big.

By the way, your House idea would be almost TOO MUCH for AB. ;)  That would have been cool, though. I, too, enjoyed that show and Hugh Laurie's role.

I wonder if he could have been worked into the plot of a episode or two of Justified ... Would like to have seen him and Timothy Olyphant share the screen.

Clint being on Columbo is an interesting thought too. I could picture that in the '70s.

This is such a great idea! Clint Eastwood was a very clear influence on the Raylen Givens character. I would loved to have seen this as well, and should of thought of this myself! What kind of role did you envision him playing?

A long-lost relative of Raylan's? West Coast crime boss? Though I could more easily see him as a law enforcement guy, maybe a retired guy they went to for advice. I could hear him giving Givens some piece of cryptic advice that would send him off brooding without a wisecrack comeback.

This one’s for Rawhide7 and Elizabeth77:

You’re at the airport boarding the plane.  You sit down and wouldn’t you know it, Mr. Clint Eastwood sits down right next to you!  What is your initial reaction?  How do you handle having Clint as a companion for your flight and what subjects would you engage him in during your time together?

To be brutally honest, I'd get awfully shy in a hurry.  That's not hard for me around strangers anyway.  I can think lots of nice thoughts, but to actually break the ice and make conversation is not one of my strong points.  It's totally possible that I could sit next to Clint on a six hour flight and never exchange more than a polite smile.  IF I got up the nerve to talk to Clint, conversation would probably revolve around travel and the weather.  I don't think I'd be likely to bring up his films or my interest in them, unless it happened by accident.  I'm a chatter box when the fit takes me, but it's hard to get me going.  I think it would be far more fun to listen to Clint talk to someone else.  I'm not good at asking interesting questions, but I like listening to the answers.

I know I wasn't tagged here, but I'm going to answer anyway!  :P

If I had 6 hours of captive audience with Clint, I wouldn't talk to him about his movies, though I'd start out by saying I was a fan all my life. I'd actually talk to him about this forum of fans, and how long we've been talking here about his movies and that he not only has entertained so many of us, but he's brought together friends from all over the world that he probably doesn't really know he's done. I'd tell him about KC who moderates the board and has for nearly 20 years now, and that he's met her at a book signing, and that she's also co-editor of the book Clint Eastwood Interviews, then I'd make him write a letter to her on a cocktail napkin. Then I'd ask him if we could have a little 1 hour chat session with him on the board at a specific time and date that would work for him. I'd probably tell him about AKA, who joined the board when he was 14, and that we said should be a judge someday, and how he's still around and now living in D.C., after graduating law school and trying to find a career that would be the most beneficial to the most people. And Christopher, our college freshman who's now a college teacher. And all the Aussie fans, and the fans from Sweden, Finland, Greece, Brazil, Portugal, France, Japan, and just about everywhere there's internet, there's Clint fans that come by our forum to discuss Clint's movies and why they're fans.

And after six hours with me, Clint would be so happy to get off that plane!  ;D

When I'm not with NASA, I work for one of our telecommunication companies. It's not too shabby. I get paid well, benefits, shares in the company and a pension plan. How would I best suit an Eastwood film crew? I'd get in the way.  ;)

AKA23, how far would you go to meet Clint?

This is a really great question but it also brings me a lot of pain. I've tried twice to meet Clint and haven't been successful either time. On the first try, I traveled from San Diego to Carmel to attend a film festival in 2011. He was premiering "J. Edgar" so I knew he'd be there. I flew to Carmel, rented a car, spent several days in a hotel and bought tickets for the festival, all in the hopes of meeting Clint. When I spoke to the organizer before deciding to attend, I shared how much of a fan I was and asked her about potentially meeting Clint. She said that he regularly attends a party there every year, and that he was very friendly and would regularly talk with the guests at that party. She recommended that I purchase a VIP ticket since that would gain me access to that party. I did so. Unfortunately, there was a malfunction during the screening of "J. Edgar", so the film stopped working, and the last 30-45 minutes of the film could not be shown. I think because Clint was probably embarrassed by that, he didn't end up going to the after party that year, so I didn't get to meet him. I was really disappointed.


At the after party, I approached the same woman I spoke with on the phone, who was the organizer. I shared my story of how I had traveled to the festival to meet Clint, and she remembered our phone conversation from before I decided to attend. She seemed to like me, so she told me that Warner Bros was planning to do another screening the next night. She said that if that ended up happening, that Clint would be there, and she offered to personally introduce me to Clint. I was so excited to potentially meet him! She asked me to call her the next day to arrange a time, and I did so. Unfortunately, the next day she told me that Warners decided not to hold that screening, so I never got to meet Clint.

Since Clint wasn't at the after party, I decided to check out the Mission Ranch, since I knew that he frequented that. When I got there, I happened to see Joel Cox, who I had met earlier when he and Gary Roach gave a talk about their editing of Clint's films at the festival. He said that I'd just missed Clint. I had a long chat with him. He was very personable, and was even willing to give me his email, but when I tried to follow up with him after the festival, he didn't respond.

I tried again to meet Clint when I attended the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC in 2013.  Richard Schickel was premiering his "Eastwood Directs" documentary, and he was being interviewed about his career. I got to the event two hours early hoping that I might be able to meet Clint as he was arriving before the festival, but I think he arrived while the audience was watching the documentary, so I didn't see him. Since I was so early, I was in the front row, but the stage was raised so you couldn't get there from where I was, and he left so quickly after his interview, that it was impossible to say anything to him or get his attention.

After these two unsuccessful attempts, I decided that I wouldn't spend any more money trying to meet Clint, so I haven't tried again. I'd be willing to spend the money to fly to wherever he was, or fly down to Los Angeles, if someone who knew him was willing to introduce me, but I don't have the money to continue trying for a chance encounter. If I were to meet him, I'd just want to take a photo with him, thank him, and let him know about how much his films have meant to me. I've been a fan since I was 9 or 10 years old when I first stayed up late at night to watch "Unforgiven" after my parents had gone to sleep. They didn't want me watching violent movies, so I kept the volume low, but he's been my favorite actor and director ever since. I'd tell him that his movies have helped me to get through many of the struggles that I've had in my life, and that I found his life story to be so inspirational. I hold him in such high regard, so it would mean a lot to me to be able to meet him, but I don't know what to do to be more successful. I feel like I've tried everything and I haven't been successful, and it makes me so sad that I likely won't ever get the chance to meet him.
