Clint Eastwood & Quentin Tarantino Share the Screen for Boetticher Documentary

Dec 19, 2005 | 6:03am EST

Clint Eastwood and Quentin Tarantino have joined forces to pay tribute to their silver screen hero Budd Boetticher in a new TV documentary about the B-movie western director.

The pair discovered a joint interest in the 1950s movie icon and jumped at the chance to sit down together for the upcoming special Budd Boetticher: A Man Can Do That.

But Eastwood admits it was tougher than expected talking with the excitable filmmaker.

He says, "The producers had me there to get Quentin started, and believe me, it doesn't take much.

"Quentin's interesting; he's followed lots of directors he never knew."

In the documentary, Tarantino reveals Michael Madsen's Budd character in the Kill Bill films was an homage to Boetticher.
