Last night I watched the boring long film 'Flags of our Father' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKuym66LIr4

I preferred 'Letters from Iwo Jima'  and once watched both films back to back

Someone mentioned it was directed by Clint Eastwood.   I said he's a great actor and a film director.

Then someone said what film did he acted in? Then there was a long pause because I was shocked and bit taken back.  Then I started stammering and said that he made many Cow Boy films.  Then  I said he directed that great film with Morgan Freeman - I could not think of the title!

Folks I could not think of one film he made  The fact is I thought every knew

Clint Eastwood - all his film are box office!

this is your most shocking thread ever, Karen.

I could goggle all  his films that he acted in and directed.

So could you name any films he has  acted in or directed, off the top of your head?

I did mentioned the film 'Magnum'  or was it called 'Colt 45'?

Johnny name any films of his, off top of your head

08/07/2013 at 00:22

Play misty for me, unforgiven, dirty harry, dead pool, all the every which way films, Pale rider, Million dollar baby etc etc. He's done some great films and has been a pretty good director too.

Off the top of my head: Gran Torino; Escape from Alcatraz, The Bridges of Madison County. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Dirty Harry... 

(And you'll notice these are different films from the ones Jeremy G mentioned).

We're not all as ignorant as you Karen. You see, our interests are broader than vaginal rejuvination or "The Voice". I suggest you try widening your horizons too.

Paint Your Wagon, Gran Torino, Unforgiven, Magnum Force, Tightrope, Million Dollar Baby, in the line of duty, is that enough? Clint is a movie icon. It's not difficult to name twenty of his films.

I always preferred the guy who lived in the other direction; Clint Westward

Thought Karen's first names thread was really good but I see she's back to being mental again

When the man with a forty-five meets the man with a rifle, you said the man with a pistol is a dead man. Let's see if that's true.

Stiff competition but 'Unforgiven' is, in my opinion, the greatest 'Western' ever made. Clint directed and acted, with an amazing cast.

Also off the top of my head,  "Hang 'em High".

Going back to the start of his career, I used to rush home to watch "Rawhide", every teenage girl I knew was mad about the cowboy trail rider Rowdy Yates.  Eastwood played the role for quite a few series.

Dirty Harry, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Fistful of Dollars, A Few Dollars More, (that one with the oran-utang, can't remember the name), Bridges of Madison County, Play Misty for Me, Million Dollar Baby, The Outlaw Josey Wales.

And I'm not even particularly a fan!

"Bird". A beautiful film, made with real love of the subject.

08/07/2013 at 13:59

Going even further back - Randy Yates in the TV series RawHide.
