Biography

In a career that spanned over half a century, actor-director Clint Eastwood managed to become both a top box office draw and an Oscar-winning director, while managing to shrug off the trappings of Hollywood. Never one to worry about critical or audience reception, Eastwood amassed a staggeringly impressive body of work both in front of and behind the camera, while at the same time starring in two film series that were both legendary and notorious. After breaking through on television on "Rawhide" (CBS, 1959-1966), he personified the laconic Man With No Name in a trilogy of Spaghetti Westerns made by Italian director, Sergio Leone: "A Fistful of Dollars" (1964), "For a Few Dollars More" (1965) and "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" (1966). While continuing to churn out revisionist Westerns throughout the 1970s, Eastwood essayed another taciturn loner bucking the system in "Dirty Harry" (1971). Spawning four sequels throughout the years, Eastwood's loose cannon police detective became both scourge and hero to audiences. Though he made his directing debut with "Play Misty for Me" (1971), Eastwood reached full fruition as a filmmaker with his Oscar-winning Western, "Unforgiven" (1992). As unpredictable as he was indefinable, Eastwood branched out into unchartered territory in the new millennium, helming such moving and deeply rich films as "Mystic River" (2003), "Million Dollar Baby" (2004) and "Letters From Iwo Jima" (2006), all of which earned considerable acclaim, while cementing Eastwood as one of the truly great creative talents in cinematic history.
