Description by OLDIES.com:

This will make your day!A richly illustrated retrospective celebrating the life and films of Clint Eastwood - written by renowned film critic, and acclaimed documentary filmmaker, Richard Schickel and with an introduction by the legend himself.

Clint Eastwood is a Hollywood - and American - icon: beloved by critics and audiences alike, he has carved out a uniquely successful career that's spanned more than half a century and sixty movies. Acclaimed as both actor and director, as well as for his musical compositions, he's won multiple Oscars for his achievements in front of and behind the camera and has established himself as a true cinematic great.

This stunning volume presents a chronological look at his astonishing body of work, from the early "spaghetti westerns" to his iconic role as "Dirty" Harry Callahan in Dirty Harry (1971), to the soulful Bird (1988) and the revolutionary western Unforgiven (1992). It looks at more recent films such as the Academy Award-winning Mystic River (2003) and Million Dollar Baby (2004), and his latest picture, the rousing drama Invictus, starring Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman, which was released in December 2009.

Over 300 spectacular images, including dynamic stills from memorable screen performances and revealing behind-the-scenes photos, are accompanied by Richard Schickel's incisive and illuminating commentary.
