It says starring Clint Eastwood  ???
  Amazon Link

I also just picked up a copy of the Coogan's Bluff DVD, I was a bit dissapointed with their not even being one extra feature! What's up with that.  :-\

Maybe an episode of Rawhide.

Curled in the womb of a 29-year low
Four walls from Heaven and one sin from Hell
In room 17 at Deguello Motel"

It's an episode of the western series Death Valley Days. According to IMDb Eastwood had a guest appearance in "The Last Letter" Episode: #5.7 - 8 December 1956.
However, he isn't credited for the episode Deadly Decision on IMDb, only James Caan and Roger Mobley are. But if you look closely at the picture, both Caan and Eastwood's names are on it. I'm guessing Clint either did play in the episode Deadly Decision (with James Caan) but wasn't credited on IMDb or the video contains two episodes, The Last Letter and Deadly Decision.

Eastwood appeared in ONE episode of Death Valley Days, namely "The Last Letter." I have it on laserdisc. Clint plays a down-on-his-luck gold miner who never gets any mail ... until one day someone is trying to reach him about an inheritance that he has to travel East to claim before a deadline. It's been a long time snce I watched it but I think that's how the plot goes.

He'd grown the mustache for a part in Wellman's Lafayette Escadrille, but as it happened, a casting change in the lead role left him with a much smaller role than the one that had originally been offered him. (This is according to Schickel's Clint Eastwood, p. 94.) This was in 1957, when he was still a totally unknown struggling actor, two years before Rawhide.

The laserdisc includes four episodes of the series. Besides "The Last Letter," they are "Deadly Decision" with James Caan; "The Kid from Hell's Kitchen" with Robert BLake; and "Three Minutes to Eternity" with Forrest Tucker.
