This will make your day! Written by renowned film critic and acclaimed documentary filmmaker Richard Schickel, this lavish celebration of Clint Eastwood's life and films--now in paperback--features an introduction by the legend himself. Richly illustrated with over 300 spectacular images, including memorable stills and behind-the-scenes photos, Clint spans his entire career, from the early spaghetti westerns and iconic “Dirty” Harry films to the soulful Bird (1988), the masterful Unforgiven (1992), and modern classics like Mystic River (2003), Million Dollar Baby (2004), Flags of Our Fathers (2006), and J. Edgar (2011).

Richard Schickel is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, movie historian and film critic who has published more than thirty books and produced, written and directed more than thirty films for television. Schickel was a film critic for Life and Time for forty-three years.From Booklist:
There’s no paucity of books on Eastwood. Indeed, Time film critic Schickel penned a substantive biography in 1997. What sets his new effort apart is his intimate familiarity with Eastwood and his work. Schickel’s known the star for 33 years and begins here with a lengthy introduction that serves as an overview of his career while it recounts revealing personal moments with Eastwood. A chronological, film-by-film account of his oeuvre follows, from the mid-1960s Italian spaghetti westerns and his breakthrough (the moment when a star becomes a superstar) in Dirty Harry to his recent, commercially bold treatments of race relations, Gran Torino and Invictus. Schickel assesses each movie with breezy insight, justly praising landmarks like Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby but not letting friendship prevent honest appraisal of such lesser achievements as Pink Cadillac and The Rookie. Some 300 photos, many from behind the scenes, take up as much space as the text. A lavish tribute to Eastwood’s singular career, which no other actor-director since Chaplin has equaled in terms of commercial and artistic success. --Gordon Flagg
