Clint Eastwood: 35 Films 35 Years At Warner BrosFebruary 16th, 2010The 35th film is The Eastwood Factor, an intimate short film from Time magazine critic and film historian Richard Schickel. The Eastwood Factor presents Eastwood in a way he’s rarely seen — visiting film locations or sites where his movies were created, and on the Warner lot visiting the costume department and Eastwood Scoring Stage, as well as at his home. Eastwood’s candid, intelligent and often humorous interviews about his body of work and the choices he made, along with Schickel’s selection of scenes from his movies (including his upcoming Invictus), results in an up-close and personal portrait of one of the great icons of our era. The end result is a clear reminder of why Eastwood’s career as both a great filmmaker and actor has been so enduring and his work so respected.* The Eastwood Factor: A short film by Richard Schickel about Eastwood* 24-page sampler booklet from Clint: A Retrospective by Richard Schickel* Rare and one-of-a-kind correspondence and photos* Hours of special features including commentaries and featurettes* Collectible DVD album packagingApril 6th, 2010The full 288-page book from Richard Schickel, entitled Clint: A Retrospective, will be published by Sterling Publishing Inc.
