Clint Eastwood’s illustrious film career, both behind and in front of the camera, has spanned more than a half century and has touched generations of filmgoers across the globe. The filmmaker/actor has won five Academy Awards®, while his films have grossed nearly $2 billion at the domestic box office.
The collection, considered the largest feature film box set ever released for a single artist, contains 35 classic Eastwood films from the Warner library, and highlights the breadth and depth of his extraordinary work. The box set will span from Where Eagles Dare (1968), through to Invictus (2010). The set includes the classic Dirty Harry movies, Oscar® winners and nominees such as Mystic River and Unforgiven, the westerns that propelled him to fame, gritty war movies including Letters From Iwo Jima and Flags of Our Fathers, classic comedies such as Every Which Way But Loose, and many more besides.
An additional film is The Eastwood Factor. An intimate short film from Time magazine critic and film historian Richard Schickel, The Eastwood Factor gives viewers a rare insight into the life of the filmmaker and actor. Eastwood’s candid, intelligent and often humorous interviews about his work, along with Schickel’s selection of scenes from his movies, result in an up-close and personal portrait of one of the great icons of our era. The documentary offers a clear reminder of why Eastwood’s career as both a great filmmaker and actor has been so enduring, and his work so respected.
Eastwood’s relationship with Warner Bros. began in 1975 with the signing of a long-term pact, and Eastwood’s Malpaso Productions moved onto the studio’s lot. Among the many awards the actor/filmmaker has received for his work are four Oscars® and 11 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director Academy Award® wins. Eastwood has also received five Golden Globes®, countless critic’s association accolades and lifetime achievement awards from, among others, the Directors Guild of America, Screen Actors Guild, the American Film Institute and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (Cecil B. DeMile Award). In addition, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented him with the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award. Recently, Eastwood was made a commander in the prestigious French Legion of Honor (Légion d’honneur), cited for his “body of work, his longevity and his ability to delight audiences around the globe”.
Early in his career, Eastwood starred as the “Man with No Name” in A Fistful of Dollars, his first spaghetti western, which was a box office success and drew attention to the young actor. Additional roles followed, including the role of Harry Callahan in five Dirty Harry films, beginning in 1971. That same year, he made his directorial debut with Play Misty for Me. Other noted Eastwood films include the Charlie Parker biography Bird; The Bridges of Madison County, In the Line of Fire, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, White Hunter, Black Heart, Absolute Power, Space Cowboys, Mystic River, Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima and, most recently, Gran Torino. His newest film, Invictus, stars Oscar® winners Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon in the inspiring true story of how Nelson Mandela joined forces with Francois Pienaar, captain of South Africa’s rugby team, to help unite their country.
