Just to let everyone know, Parkinson is now being recorded tonight (Wednesday) instead of the usual Thursday night slot.

No production ticket for me but i managed to watch it all on the internal loop including the rehersals.

The interview was a treat. conducted far more fluently than that at the nft. Clint was relaxed enough to do a James Stewart impression and was also in good humour. For those of us at the NFT ther is alot of repetition but certainly an enjoyable interview.

Parkinson with Clint is broadcast at 10.25pm GMT tonight! (That's about 35 mins' time). I really wanted to go to the Guardian interview with Clint - Parky was doing that too. Did anyone mention that before? It was last Tuesday evening in London. Unfortunately I was working - unpaid work experience, so I don't even have money to motivate me! Anyway, don't forget to watch those of you in the UK!

Everyone will be pleased to know that I handed in my dissertation on Hitchcock, Location & Set Design on Thur Oct 2nd so I'm free to come on here now. Although I'm totally knackered (tired) from going straight into working for no money as I just mentioned, 'cause I don't get home 'til 7pm. Plus my dad is permanently glued to the computer so I can't get near it.

Anyway, I digress. I'm going to spend my small amount of free time watching and re-watching the Clint videos that I meant to watch ages ago (some I still haven't seen!) Then I can join in with some discussions that aren't on the Off-Topic section of the board.

Sorry I didn't come back sooner. I missed you all!
It'll be great to see Mystic River at the cinema. I've never seen a Clint film on the big screen before (oh for shame!)

 :D

Just watched the Parkinson interview and I thought Clint was great! 8)  He was on good form; laid back and suave.  It's the first time I've seen him in an "as live" interview, with the spontaneity that comes with events before an audience.  The strongest impression I got was of his humility, and his serious love for his work.  

They talked a bit about Mystic River, and a clip of Sean Penn's interview with the police was shown.  They also talked about his motivation to work, and a bit about his early years, his not having a huge entourage, and having kids later in life (Clint gave a response I've heard him use before: "my kids weren't gonna give me any grand children, so I had my own", which got a good laugh).  

At the end Parky asked "what's it like being a sex symbol at 73?"  Clint sort of laughed that off, but after tonight it's clear he still has that "special something"! ;)

As I said in a previous post Vik, the show should have been a one man show. But a delight to watch once again, and the man still looks so cool. ;)

PS So glad you enjoyed it Lilly.

Yes, I think after it's taken all this time to get Clint on Parky, and given he's a man of such stature, they ought to have given him longer.  Maybe Clint didn't want too long an interview, but it seemed something of a disservice to give him more or less the same time as Jennifer Saunders and Ben Elton. >:(  

But I thought Clint had particular gravitas appearing after Elton, who Clint (politely I think) referred to as "glib".

Cheers Stranger.  It was really special to see something with Clint that's up-to-date, and even in Britain; sort of makes him seem more real somehow.  I suppose he must seem pretty real to you after Wednesday night! 8)

Is he still in the UK (Sunday)? Has he got plans to do anything else over here or do we wait till he's next over here for more sightings?

I agree with Lilly, the whole show should have been devoted to Clint! He came across as so warm and funny and intelligent, I wish there'd been more time for him to talk. I'm sure I will love Mystic River Stranger! When is it out here? I caught a bit of Magnum Force on TCM last night, I haven't seen that yet, would you believe! That's quite nasty when the pimp murders the prostitute by pouring cleaning fluid down her mouth...people often seem to die nasty deaths in Clint films! Or maybe there are just a lot of deaths. I really need to swot up on my Clint films. I don't own all of them either! Nearly all. I'm broke at the moment, in fact, in the red, so you'll have to forgive me. I'm desperate to get Unforgiven on the double DVD.
P.S. I'm sorry Clyde, I have no idea how long Clint is in the UK. I would've thought he'd be returning to America soon.
P.P.S. Does anyone know if I can view the transcript or even hear the Guardian interview online?
