Classic Actor of the Day: Clint Eastwood

31 May

Dirty Harry star turns 82 today. Happy Birthday Sir Clint Eastwood!!! His career has surpassed the 57-year milestone in Hollywood, as a special mark of respect to an incredible actor-director-producer. I’ve piled up some of his snapshots from his leading roles in A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and up to Dirty Harry.


A Fistful of Dollars (1964) as Joey
“I don’t think it’s nice, you laughin’. You see, my mule don’t like people laughing. He gets the crazy idea you’re laughin’ at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you’re going to, I might convince him that you really didn’t mean it.”

For a Few Dollars More (1965) as Monco

“Tell me, isn’t the sheriff supposed to be courageous, loyal, and above all, honest?”

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) as Blondie
“God is not on our side because he hates idiots also.”

Hang ‘Em High (1968) as Jed Cooper
“Well, I don’t care how you slice it – whether there’s nine men out in the plains with a dirty rope or a judge with his robe on in front of the American flag – those boys are going to be just as dead as if they’d been lynched.”

Coogan’s Bluff (1968) as Walt Coogan
“All right now, I don’t like violence, Mr. Wonderful whatever your name is. You better drop that blade, or you won’t believe what happens next, even while it’s happening.”

Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970) as Hogan
“All the women I’ve ever known were natural-born liars but I never knew about nuns until now.”

Kelly’s Heroes (1970) as Pvt. Kelly
“Well, if you were looking for a young boy, you should have sent somebody else, Joe.”

The Beguiled (1971) as John McBurney
“I’ve just been thinking about all the advantages a one-legged man has. He saves on socks. He doesn’t have to worry about trimming as many toenails… fewer corns and bunions. I’ve been contemplating asking her to cut off the other one.”

Play Misty for Me (1971) as David Garver
“You haven’t got the faintest idea of what love is, we don’t even know each other.”

Dirty Harry (1971) as Harry Callahan

“I know what you’re thinking, punk. You’re thinking “did he fire six shots or only five?” Now to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and will blow you head clean off, you’ve gotta ask yourself a question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?”
