Synopsis: Like so many of the characters he plays, Clint Eastwood is secretive about himself, his past and his private life. Now approaching 70, he has tended to play characters who are cold, hard and morally ambiguous: from Sergio Leone's "spaghetti westerns" through "Hang Em High" and "Dirty Harry" to "Pale Rider" and "Unforgiven". Alternately stroking and intimidating the press, Clint Eastwood has always been an arch manipulator: of women, friends and colleagues, publicity and finance. Yet in a bewildering age, perhaps no star is more the hero to his audience: a symbol of simple solutions, law and order, "de-fashioned" values, and rebellion against bureaucracy. This text is a biography that gives Clint his due as actor, director and human being.

Review: As celebrity biographer McGilligan tells it in Clint, Eastwood's career is the classic tale of power and fame corrupting: a small-town boy (who actually grew up in San Francisco) comes to L.A. with a wide grin and an easy manner; is remade by agents and directors (Sergio Leone said, that at first, "Eastwood had only two expressions: with or without a hat"); becomes one of the richest stars in Hollywood; and stops smiling--except wolfishly. McGilligan depicts him as a master of betrayal, casually discarded friendships, and alleged extramarital affairs (which seem to shock the author), complete with alleged children out of wedlock.

Readable though kiss-and-tell breathless, McGilligan's book sometimes overlooks Clint's full significance as a crafter of classics. He should remember the sage words of the French critic who observed, "If you love the films, nothing else matters." --Gregory McNamee
