Classic Hollywood Throwback Thursday Featuring Clint Eastwood
See, you’re only half right, because back in the day my friends, Clint was a major hottie! See that perfectly chiseled jaw line. The buffness of his arms. The way his sideburns fall in just the right place–now you know where Scott Eastwood gets it from.
So let’s get to know Clint Eastwood the man and not the chair talker, shall we?
Clint first appeared on many people’s radars in 1958 as the super studly Rowdy Yates on Rawhide. I’m sure you’ve seen reruns of it before, but here’s a taste of what he looked like then.
Once Rawhide’s popularity declined in the early 60s, Clint struck western gold once again, this time as the Man With No Name in Sergio Leone’s Spaghetti Western classics A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. And basically, Clint has been on top of the world ever since.
After those movies came five Dirty Harry films, and of course his career as a director. He might not have any Oscars for acting, but he does have two for directing–for Million Dollar Baby and Unforgiven. And yes, in recent years he’s getting weirder and weirder, but he’ll always be a major hottie to me.
So, for an extra special Clint Eastwood marathon, I recommend the entire Dollars trilogy (The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly will do if you only have time for one), the first Dirty Harry and Unforgiven. You will love them.
