9780957148369: Clint: A Retrospective

Over the course of a celebrated and spellbinding career - both on screen and behind the camera - Clint Eastwood has become one of the all-time Hollywood greats. From early starring roles in Sergio Leone's genre busting Spaghetti Western A Fistful of Dollars to recent movies such as Gran Torino, he has captivated audiences with his tough guy persona for over forty years. As a director, his films have received great acclaim. He re-invented the Western with Unforgiven, while more recent films such as Letters from Iwo Jima and Mystic River have been hailed as modern classics. He is one of only three living directors to have directed two Best Picture winners (for Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby). This beautifully produced book is the definitive retrospective of this great movie icon. It features rare images from the Warner Bros. archive and revealing behind-the-scenes photos that show the filmmaker at work, as well as dramatic pictures that capture his unforgettable screen performances. The award winning film critic Richard Schickel contributes an illuminating assessment and perceptive commentary on each film. This new, large format paperback edition is updated to include Eastwood's latest films, Trouble with the Curve and Jersey Boys.

From Booklist:

There’s no paucity of books on Eastwood. Indeed, Time film critic Schickel penned a substantive biography in 1997. What sets his new effort apart is his intimate familiarity with Eastwood and his work. Schickel’s known the star for 33 years and begins here with a lengthy introduction that serves as an overview of his career while it recounts revealing personal moments with Eastwood. A chronological, film-by-film account of his oeuvre follows, from the mid-1960s Italian spaghetti westerns and his breakthrough (the moment when a star becomes a superstar) in Dirty Harry to his recent, commercially bold treatments of race relations, Gran Torino and Invictus. Schickel assesses each movie with breezy insight, justly praising landmarks like Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby but not letting friendship prevent honest appraisal of such lesser achievements as Pink Cadillac and The Rookie. Some 300 photos, many from behind the scenes, take up as much space as the text. A lavish tribute to Eastwood’s singular career, which no other actor-director since Chaplin has equaled in terms of commercial and artistic success. --Gordon Flagg
