As he enters his eighth decade in the movies, Warner Bros. celebrates this cinematic icon - actor, producer, director, master filmmaker - with a new documentary covering the entire breadth of Eastwood's remarkable career.

Although this is ostensibly a "9 part" series, I watched it on pay-for-view as one documentary, which was about 2 1/2 hours long. 

It is also available on Amazon Prime and on You Tube for $2.99

Here is a clip from the documentary

Basically a love letter to the 91 year old Eastwood from his friends and peers , at 2 1/2 hours it has the time to go into considerable behind the scenes detail of many of his most famous films as both an actor and director, and also goes into depth about Eastwood's style and working atmosphere as a director. 

Numerous famous actors and directors offer their comments about Eastwood, including Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, Kevin Costner, Mel Gibson, Arnold Schwarzenegger , Bradley Cooper, Hillary Swank, Morgan Freeman,  and many more. 

A must see for Clint fans.

One of the memorable segments is about the making of the movie American Sniper. they interview Chris Kyle's wife and she is very grateful for the great job she says Eastwood and Bradley Cooper did telling her husbands story.

I'm a fan of Eastwood.

One of my all-time favorite movies is, ''Play Misty For Me"'.

Interestingly, Scorsese, Spielberg and Meryl Streep all mention Play Misty For Me in their comments.

It was the first film that Eastwood directed and a psychological thriller, something that departed from the usual fare and to me established him as a force.

established him as a force.

It certainly put him in the top five... no question about that... from that moment on he became a peer of all the greats..

Play Misty for Me scared the sh*t out of me.  I think I had nightmares after watching it.  I think my big problem is that I get emotionally involved watching movies, almost put myself into the movies as I watch them and relive them after wards.  Maybe that's one of the reasons I love the movies as much as I do.

I wish I could see that tribute, but not only can't but also can't open the clips on this article.  However, I've watched lots of Clint Eastwood's movies.  Not only has he been an actor, a director, producer, master filmmaker, but also a mayor.

Clint is one of my favorite all time actors/directors.   Here's one of my favs of his that is much lesser known.

Trouble with the curve.

Clint plays an aging scout who has been one of the best scouts for decades but now is being questioned because of his age and old school scouting technique.   His GM friend elicits the help of his daughter to help him, that has been semi estranged from Gus for the usual father daughter relationship issues.   This scene pits a pitcher that his daughter finds by "hearing the sound" as Clint tells her and the pitcher destroys the Braves #1 draft pick chosen by the young upstart scout using more modern techniques.   Good movie

Great seed John!

Million Dollar Baby is the best.  The New York Times named it the third best movie of the century so far.

We have most of the Clint Eastwoods movies, at least ones we could get.

Paint Your Wagon with Lee Marvin is one of our favorites, it is somewhat of a musical/comedy. Eastwood and Marvin sing in the movie and Marvin is a hoot. Harve Presnell does a great job of singing They Call The Wind Maria. A fun movie to watch.

I am not a Clint as an actor fan, but I do appreciate his directing.  The Changeling, Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil, Mystic River, and Space Cowboys to name a few.

Eastwood has done a lot of Western's that I always enjoyed, ''The Outlaw Josey Wales'' and of course his classic Western, ''Unforgiven''.
