He became a movie star playing The Man With No Name, and today
his name is known around the world. Measured by longevity,
productivity, and profits, Clint Eastwood is the most successful
actor-director-producer in American film history. This book
examines the major elements of his career, focusing primarily on
his work as a director but also exploring the evolution of his
acting style, his long association with screen violence, his
interest in jazz, and the political views -- sometimes hotly
controversial -- reflected in his films and public statements.
Especially fascinating is the pivotal question that divides critics
and moviegoers to this day: is Eastwood a capable director with a
photogenic face, a modest acting talent, and a flair for marketing
his image? Or is he a true cinematic auteur with a distinctive
vision of America's history, traditions, and values? From A Fistful
of Dollars and Dirty Harry to Million Dollar Baby and beyond, The
Cinema of Clint Eastwood takes a close-up look at one of the
screen's most influential and charismatic stars.
