Clint Eastwood was catapulted to film stardom as "The Man With No Name" in Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns. Once established as a star, he became the John Wayne of his era, an American icon whose box-office drawing power remained undiluted three decades later, despite unfriendly critics, unfavourable gossip, and unspectacular forays into politics. Uniquely, Eastwood used his new-found star status to launch a second, and arguably more successful career as a director.
This book analyses all of Eastwood's films as a director, and includes information about his acting career, particularly those films directed by members of his "stock company," as well as tracing the influences of his work.
