The steady rise of Clint Eastwood’s career parallels a pressing desire in American society over the past five decades for a figure and story of purpose, meaning, and redemption. Eastwood has not only told and filmed that story, he has come to embody it for many in his public image and film persona. Eastwood responds to a national yearning for a vision of individual action and initiative, personal responsibility, and potential for renewal. An iconic director and star for his westerns, urban thrillers, and adventure stories, Eastwood has taken film art to new horizons of meaning in a series of masterpieces that engage the ethical and moral consciousness of our times, including Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby, and Mystic River. He revolutionized the war film with the unprecedented achievement of filming the opposing sides of the same historic battle in Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima, using this saga to present a sharply critical representation of the new America that emerged out of the war, a society of images and spectacles. This timely examination of Clint Eastwood’s oeuvre against the backdrop of contemporary America will be fascinating reading for students of film and popular culture, as well as readers with interests in Eastwood’s work, American film and culture.

Clint Eastwood (b. 1930) is the only popular American dramatic star to have shaped his own career almost entirely through films of his own producing, frequently under his own direction; no other dramatic star has directed himself so often. He is also one of the most prolific active directors, with thirty-three features to his credit since 1971. As a star, he is often recalled primarily for two early roles--the "Man with No Name" of three European-made Westerns, and the uncompromising cop "Dirty" Harry Callahan. But on his own as a director, Eastwood has steered a remarkable course. A film industry insider who works through the established Hollywood system and respects its traditions, he remains an outsider by steadfastly refusing to heed cultural and aesthetic trends in film production and film style. His films as director have examined an eclectic variety of themes, ranging from the artist's life to the nature of heroism, while frequently calling into question the ethos of masculinity and his own star image. Yet they have remained accessible to a popular audience worldwide. With two Best Director and two Best Picture Oscars to his credit, Eastwood now ranks among the most highly honored living filmmakers. These interviews range over the more than four decades of Eastwood's directorial career, with an emphasis on practical filmmaking issues and his philosophy as a filmmaker. Nearly a third are from European sources--several appearing here in English for the first time.

Första svenska biografin om kulturfenomenet Clint Eastwood! Mannen. Myten. Ikonen. Varumärket. På film, i politiken. Älskad och hatad som få. Kallad såväl fascist som politiskt korrekt liberal. Clint Eastwood lämnar ingen oberörd och därför är det hög tid för en bok om honom. I den första svenska biografin skärskådas en av Hollywoods längsta och mest framgångsrika karriärer både framför och bakom kameran. Oavsett om man ser honom som stor konstnär eller som dussinprodukt, stjärna eller uppblåst B-skådis, är Clint Eastwood ett globalt kulturfenomen att ta på allvar. Clint Eastwood är en arketypisk amerikansk historia. Hans släkt har anor tillbaka till 1600-talet i USA, och under följande sekel tillhörde de pionjärerna som sökte sig västerut. Hans liv är en klassisk framgångssaga från födseln 1930 i ett enkelt hem i Oakland, Kalifornien, till att bli en av Hollywoods mest säljande stjärnor och viktigaste regissörer. I en mediedominerad tid blev han ett säljande varumärke, och hans medvetna marknadsföring av sig själv suddade ut gränsen mellan privatpersonen och hans roller. Likt föregångaren John Wayne och efterföljaren Arnold Schwarzenegger gjorde han sig till ikon, först för 1980-talets konservativa vindar, senare för den liberala motreaktionen. Inte undra på att såväl hans skådespelarinsatser som regiarbeten väckt ett så starkt intresse. Ingen som vill förstå amerikansk samtidshistoria, kultur och politik kan undgå Clint Eastwood. Den här första svenska biografin går bakom myten och mediebilden för att förstå honom som kulturellt och politiskt fenomen.

Following the success of his Oscar-winning role in The African Queen, Bogart starred in several other notable movies, including Beat the Devil and The Caine Mutiny.

Over four decades, Clint Eastwood has become a Hollywood legend, with his success on both sides of the camera assuring him a place in cinema history. Born the son of a steel worker in 1930, Eastwood’s drive for success led him to his first break, in 1959, on the TV series Rawhide. Eastwood broke from television in 1964 with A Fistful of Dollars—his steely gaze and strong, silent screen presence made the film a surprise box-office smash. In 1971, his performance in Dirty Harry cemented his reputation as an electrifying talent, and he has since gone on to star in and direct some of the most memorable films in Hollywood history. Now, drawing on exclusive interviews with the star, Douglas Thompson gives us a definitive portrait as Clint reveals the personal highlights of one of the most celebrated careers in cinema history.
