There are literaly hundreds...

I like the shot from Honkytonk Man of Clint in the car directly after telling his nephew about a life playing honkytonks and the story about the raw boned Oakie gal whom he fell in love with..
Its one of my favourite Clint speeches..

Also from the same film.. the close up of Clint in the recording studio after breaking down coughing during a take.. Marty Robbins takes over and Red slumps in the corner.. his face tells it all and you can see he realises that its over.. Heartbreaking..

Heres another...
Clints face near the end of Every Which Way But Loose out back of the bar when Sondra Lockes character tells him how she was just using him.. like she has done many others... just before she lets loose and starts hitting him..

One more...
The final scene from White Hunter as Clints character slumps back into his directors chair and croaks action...
I think one of the most powerful endings to an Eastwood film..

Those are all good ones, Gant, and they all show a side of Clint that people who are only superficially familiar with his movies don't know about.

One more scene picture that I think is just great is the one in Dirty Harry with Clint standing on the bridge waiting for Scorpio and the school bus to come.  I love the way the camera first shows Harry standing there in a long shot.....

One of my favorite shots of Clint, from a movie that isn't at the top of my favorites list, Sudden Impact:

LOL! This picture is a tie for my favorite with the one I mentioned earlier, the one showing Josie Wales back-lit as he enters the cantina.

In this one, the gun is Harry's 44 Automag. My, what a long barrel you have, Mr. Automag.

Clint is renowned for bringing his own personal gun to a movie set and using it in a film. Does anybody know if the Automag in that particular shot is a (his) real gun, or, if it is a rubber gun often used as the prop in an action sequence?

Thank you!, KC! What a wealth of interesting information!

My research into the Automag, the specific type as seen in Sudden Impact, told me that it had measurably more knock-down power than Harry's late Smith Wesson model 29 revolver. Different cartridges.

Harry's partner, bantering with Harry during the scene in which Harry's testing his new shooter, called it a cannon. This, after demolishing Harry's target with a 12 gauge shotgun blast.

Paul Kersey's Wiley Automag, in one of the Death Wish films, used the same cartridge but was a different frame and gun. Approximately same power.

Interesting to me, my co-favorite picture, Josey Wales entering the cantina, has Clint packing two Walker Colt 44s, and, considering Josie/Clints ambidexterity, having just about the same knock-down power as Harry with his Automag. Two similarly dramatic back-lit pictures portraying a similarily powerful hero.

Yap that was the first image that came to mind when reading this topic.  Even though you cant actually visually see him.  Just that image of him in the dark was pretty powerful.  So that one is defenately one of my favs.

Sudden Impact pic is awesome  8).  It made me remember the movie poster from a different Dirty Harry movie.



The 1/2 sheet Enforcer poster is good, too.
