This book assembles an unprecedented selection of film art that spans Eastwood's entire career - from the 1950s to the present.  Culling together over 400 pieces amassed by collector David Frangioni, this trove of promotional artwork gathers together posters, lobby cards, studio ads, and other marketing ephemera that have been used to advertise and define Eastwood's films and image throughout the world.  From his early roles as the nameless gunslinger in Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Westerns, to the vigilante films of the 1970s and 1980s, through his maturation into a major American director, this study in film iconology by Frangioni and film historian Thomas Schatz documents and assesses the stunning art that has helped make Eastwood a powerful presence and a truly classic figure of cinema.
