This great actor and director turns 90 on May 31 and Flow selected some of his best films to share with his subscribers.
From his first stage as an actor, you can see For a few more dollars and The good, the bad and the uglytwo classics of spaghetti western led by Sergio Leone in the 1960s. In both, he acts alongside Lee Van Cleef, a famous tough-looking actor, and wears a poncho which would later become iconic.
In For a Few More Dollars (1965), Eastwood also shares the screen with Gian Maria Volonte and Klaus Kinski in the story of a bounty hunter who searches for an escaped convict.
In The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) with Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleefa con will unite two men in an uneasy and unlikely alliance against a third in a race to find a fortune in gold buried in a remote cemetery.
Two years later, Ted Post directed Eastwood in The Mark of the Gallows (1968)another western, more classic, without the components of the famous italian style. Here a gang of vigilantes taking the law into their own hands catches a man wrongly believing him guilty of robbery and murder.
They hang him and leave him for dead. But it doesn’t die. He returns to his former profession as a lawyer to hunt down his lynchers and bring them to justice.
The 70s and today
Michael Cimino made his directorial debut in Crime Specialists (1974) where Eastwood shares the bill with Jeff Bridges in this film where a gang of thieves gets together again, leaving aside suspicions and mistrust, to repeat a robbery
Also in the American West but far from the Western, Clint Eastwood stars in Escape from Alcatraz (1979) by Don Siegel, who had already directed him in one of his most famous films: Dirty Harry. Based on a best seller of the same name, this film tells the story of the famous escape of three prisoners from Alcatrazthe most secure prison of its time.
of his stage as directorFlow proposes two great films based on real events: 15:17 Train to Paris and The Richard Jewel Affair. In the first, three young Americans prevent an attempted terrorist attack on a train bound for Paris.
Something very particular about this film is that Eastwood chose the three friends responsible for having avoided the fact to tell this story that at times It seems almost like a documentary in real time.
The Case of Richard Jewel premiered in 2019 and it is the director’s last film. He was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe and it was a worldwide success.
It narrates the events that occurred in 1996 when the security guard Richard Jewell became a hero after foiling an attack at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. But soon after, his life turns into a nightmare when the FBI leaks to the media that he is a suspect in the case.
