Sorry it's taken 7 years but here is Clint's cameo in Breezy. :D



Hmm ... see above ...

Can't tell whether you'll think it worth buying or not, but you might like to take a look at a post of mine after I saw it on the big screen recently:

And ...

... Clint has a cameo in Breezy; I'm pretty sure it's the only one of his director-only films in which he makes such a fleeting, Hitchcock-like screen appearance. A search of the board shows that the subject has come up a couple of times, but it looks like no one has posted a cap, so I'll do the honors:

It's about 1:03 into the movie, just after the scene in which Frank reunites Breezy with the stray dog she had wanted to rescue. They're strolling on a pier ...





It's not Clint's only appearance in the movie, either ... he can also be seen on a High Plains Drifter poster outside the movie theater where Frank, accompanied by Breezy, shocks a couple of his friends with his cradle-robbing dating habits.

Doing a search yesterday I came across this thread and didn't click KC's link to her post about seeing the film on the big screen.  :-[

The more I look at the pic on the previous page, I'm thinking it is Kyle.

Maybe Lin can ask him at the next concert she attends? ;)

 ;D ;D   Well if I get to speak to him next time he has a concert I go to I will try.   ;)   It certainly looks like him on that picture.

It was the first time I'd seen this film and while it's no classic and not something I'll watch again and again it was a nice little film. Kinda reminded me of a tv movie romances with a twist of the age gap angle. William Holden playing a forty year old was a bit of a stretch but apart from that little quibble it was watchable.

3/5.

Now as to whether Kyle makes an apperance. This child is not credited in the film or at imdb. Could it be Kyle?




SK, Kyle did appear in Breezy. Lee Pfeiffer did a brilliant interview with Kyle Eastwood in the May edition of Cinema Retro. I read the interview and one of the questions was about his cameo in The Outlaw Josey Wales. Kyle said that actually wasn't the first movie he was in. He was in Breezy and Thunderbolt and Lightfoot for a second. In Thunderbolt and Lightfoot he had a scene with Jeff Bridges, he is the kid who gets handed the ice cream cone. In Breezy he said, " I think I had one line in Breezy but wasn't credited" :)

The picture you posted does look like Kyle.

Thanks, 2m! We'd wondered about that scene in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. It's Clint and not Bridges who hands him the cone ... Jeff is in the scene, though:

I received my Breezy Blu-ray yesterday and popped the disc in just to check it out. I turned on the commentary track and listened for a few minutes, and one of the guys (one a film historian and the other a writer/filmmaker) mentioned that the screenwriter had Sondra Locke in mind for the role of Breezy, and actually had Eastwood in mind as the lead. I don't think I'd ever heard that before. That would obviously be before Locke's first appearance in an Eastwood movie.

At any rate, I do like the casting of the movie, and I don't believe Eastwood would have been old enough to play the Holden character at that point (which might have been Eastwood's thought at the time as well). I'm looking forward to watching the movie again sometime here, as well as checking out the rest of the commentary track. I've seen the movie twice, and both times was surprised by how much I like it.

            Actually Eastwood wanted JoAnn Harris who was the slightly advanced student in The Beguiled for the role of Breezy.

Sondra Locke auditioned for the part of Breezy but she was eventually considered too old for that part.
Officially, that was the first time that Clint met or heard about Sondra Locke.
Clint could have played Frank Harmon but he considered himself too young for the part. William Holden was great in this one.

I saw Breezy nearly twenty years ago, for the first time. It was on tv. At that time, it was not available on dvd.
It was very rare, then and I did not want to miss it. A decade ago, I saw it on a big screen.
I like that film: it is an unpretentious one. Probably, the most unknown or forgotten film directed by Clint.
It shows Clint's taste for small pictures which deal with human relationships.
The locations are almost the same as the ones that we can see in Play Misty For Me. 
I think that Breezy has that specific aspect or charm of some American films of the seventies.

Clint is not really considered as a director of the New Hollywood (I mean that new wave of American cinema from 1968 to the beginning of the 1980's)
But Breezy is probably the film directed by Clint which looks more like the films of the New Hollywood.

Pierre Rissient was a great supporter of Breezy.

That would have been pretty good casting too. I like her in The Beguiled.
