The indefatigable Clint Eastwood, the great old man of American film, is still controversial after all these years. Many of the critical essays in this collection focus on Eastwood’s 2014 American Sniper, a particularly controversial film and a devastating personal account of the horrors of war. Additional essays within the collection address his films that deserve more recognition than they have received to date. The chapters vary by topic and identify themes ranging from aging, race, and gender to uses of Western conventions and myth to the subtleties of quieter themes and stylistic choices in Eastwood’s body of cinematic work. As a collection, these essays show that none of these themes account for Eastwood’s entire vision, which is multifaceted and often contradictory, dramatizing complex issues in powerful, character-driven narratives.

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.

Bingham (English, Indiana Univ.) closely examines the star images of three male film icons, tracing the evolution of their personas and recording their portrayals of masculinity over the course of their careers. Stewart evolved from the boy next door to a darker, even tormented figure in the 1950s; Nicholson's rebel was co-opted into Hollywood superstardom; and Eastwood delved more deeply into the complexities of his macho image. Besides his own thought-provoking analyses, Bingham discusses (and occasionally disparages) the theories of other writers on film. This often perceptive study is recommended for cinema collections.

Clint Eastwood has forged a remarkable career as a movie star, director, producer and composer. These newly discovered conversations with legendary journalist Paul Nelson return us to a point when, still acting in other people's films, Eastwood was honing his directorial craft on a series of inexpensive films that he brought in under budget and ahead of schedule. Operating largely beneath the critical radar, he made his movies swiftly and inexpensively. Few of his critics then could have predicted that Eastwood the actor and director would ever be taken as seriously as he is today. But Paul Nelson did. The interviews were conducted from 1979 through 1983. Eastwood talks openly and without illusions about his early career as an actor, old Hollywood, and his formative years as a director, his influence and what he learned along the way as an actor-lessons that helped him become the director he is today. Conversations with Clint provides a fresh and vivid perspective on the life and work of this most American of movie icons.

Clint Eastwood is one of the world's most popular action stars, who has matured into a fine American producer-director. Entertaining, illuminating and packed with information, up to and including "The Changeling", this is the first book to cover his full life in the movies, from his beginnings in 1950s B-movies and in TV's "Rawhide" to "Gran Torino" showing how as both actor and filmmaker Eastwood aims for the heart of the drama, whatever the story. Howard Hughes follows Eastwood's craft through over 50 movies. He looks at his launch into superstardom in Sergio Leone's 1960s spaghetti westerns. Back in America, he built on his success as western hero with such films as "High Plains Drifter" and "The Outlaw Josey Wales", winning an Oscar for "Unforgiven" in 1992. He blasted his way through the seventies and eighties as Inspector Harry Francis Callahan, the last hope for law enforcement in San Francisco. He also monkeyed around in two phenomenally popular films with Clyde the orang-utan, which brought tough-guy Eastwood to a whole new audience and made him the biggest box office star of his generation. "Aim for the Heart" also looks at Eastwood's more unusual roles, including "The Beguiled", "The Bridges of Madison County" and "Million Dollar Baby". Since 1970, he has enjoyed parallel success as director-producer of his own Malpaso Productions, with "Bird", "Mystic River" and "Letters from Iwo Jima", demonstrating formidable directing credentials. "Aim for the Heart" covers all Eastwood's movies of many genres in detail, and Eastwood's story is illustrated with film stills, glimpses behind the scenes, and rare poster advertising material. "Aim for the Heart" also includes the most comprehensive credits filmography has ever compiled on Eastwood's work, as star and director.

Spanning decades, American Rebel covers the best of Eastwood's oeuvre, films that have fast become American classics: Fistful of Dollars, Dirty Harry, Unforgiven, Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, and Gran Torino. Filled with remarkable insights into Eastwood's personal life and public work, American Rebel is highly entertaining and the most complete biography of one of Hollywood's truly respected and beloved stars–-an actor who, despite being the Man with No Name, has left his indelible mark on the world of motion pictures.

Over four decades, Clint Eastwood has become a Hollywood legend, with his success on both sides of the camera assuring him a place in cinema history. Born the son of a steel worker in 1930, Eastwood’s drive for success led him to his first break, in 1959, on the TV series Rawhide. Eastwood broke from television in 1964 with A Fistful of Dollars—his steely gaze and strong, silent screen presence made the film a surprise box-office smash. In 1971, his performance in Dirty Harry cemented his reputation as an electrifying talent, and he has since gone on to star in and direct some of the most memorable films in Hollywood history. Now, drawing on exclusive interviews with the star, Douglas Thompson gives us a definitive portrait.

Un nuovo libro su un autore classico. Un libro che affronta in forma imprevista e sorprendente uno dei grandi registi del cinema contemporaneo: Clint Eastwood. Il volume, pubblicato da Pellegrini Editore e curato da Alessandro Canadè e Alessia Cervini, è introdotto da Roberto De Gaetano, che presenta l’articolazione del volume (il primo della serie "Nomi Propri" all’interno della Collana "Frontiere") costruito come un lessico tematico con saggi su "Adozione" "Amicizia" "Icona" "Inattuale" "Perseveranza" "Icona" "Incarnazione" "Fantasma" "Tragico", con contributi tra gli altri di Marcello Walter Bruno, Daniele Dottorini, Alessandra Azzali, Luca Venzi, Bruno Roberti, Alessandro Cappabianca. Quello che ne esce è l’immagine nuova di un autore, guardato sotto il filtro di prospettive eterogenee ma integrate (che giungono fino al suo ultimo film "J. Edgar"), capaci di collocarsi oltre le più usuali etichette, che fanno di Eastwood e del suo cinema uno dei luoghi più intensi per pensare le forme di esistenza nella contemporaneità. Come dice De Gaetano nell’Introduzione: «Eastwood in un esercizio di tessitura simbolica dell’immaginario classico, che ne spiega la sua "inattualità", ci fa vedere all’opera il costituirsi o il dissolversi di un soggetto alle prese con la vita colta nei momenti che mettono alla prova, e dunque che mettono in condizione il soggetto di cambiare o perdersi, fino a morire».
