Clint Eastwood: The Man From Malpaso

Season 1, Episode 7 of 14

Catapulted to international prominence by Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Westerns, Clint Eastwood leapt from TV lead to world-class movie star. Then, with Dirty Harry came super-stardom. But, even that was not enough. Eastwood's goal was to get behind the camera - to make great films. Toward this end, he has produced, directed and starred in such classics as Play Misty for Me, High Plains Drifter, The Outlaw Josie Wales, and The Unforgiven. Meanwhile, Eastwood continues to explore and to take risks - always seeking to redefine his image as the loner who cares - even when the chips are down. Including clips from his best pictures, this is a retrospective told by Eastwood, himself. Included are recollections of Gene Hackman, Forest Whitaker, Frances Fisher, Jessica Walter and others.
