"...Eliot documents a wealth of details in this well-researched, comprehensive biography that will not disappoint Eastwood's fans."
"Eliot provides a great deal of detailed information about how each of Eastwood's films came together....Eliot's Eastwood is the kind of guy you'd kill to have starring in or directing your movie--but not someone who's been as dependable on the home front."
From the Publisher
Annotation Give Marc Eliot credit--it takes guts to write an unauthorized biography of Clint Eastwood. Eliot was obviously feeling lucky, and his readers will too, when they peruse the pages of this comprehensive biography, which charts Eastwood's extraordinary career, from his days as Rowdy Yates to his transformation into one of the most respected film directors of all time. Eliot reveals that Eastwood was a college dropout and gas station attendant before a screen test landed him a breakthrough role on RAWHIDE. Eastwood made his name playing "The Man With No Name" in a series of classic "spaghetti westerns" for Sergio Leone, and then cemented his cinematic immortality as "Dirty Harry," a renegade San Francisco cop. While many actors would have been content with the relative stardom and steady paycheck of genre acting, Eastwood wanted to direct, and he eventually won a pair of Academy Awards for UNFORGIVEN and MILLION DOLLAR BABY. Eastwood also enjoyed public success as a politician and jazz pianist, but Eliot does not merely bask in the glow of Eastwood's professional reputation. He investigates the more sordid details of the star's private life, including Eastwood's alleged mistreatment of his longtime romantic partner Sondra Locke and his strained relationship with his seven children--and their five mothers.
