Influential figure in Clint Eastwood's career who directed Magnum Force and Hang 'em High

It is no exaggeration to declare that the film and television director Ted Post, who has died aged 95, contributed greatly to the making of Clint Eastwood into a Hollywood superstar. When Eastwood returned to the Us from Europe, where he had starred in three Sergio Leone "spaghetti" westerns, Post directed him in Hang 'em High (1968), which consolidated Eastwood's screen persona as the impassive, laconic, gun-for-hire loner. A few years later, Post directed Eastwood again, in Magnum Force (1973), the first Dirty Harry sequel, which outdid Don Siegel's original film commercially. Eastwood said that Leone, Siegel and Post were the three most influential directors in his career.

In 1959, the unknown Eastwood – who had appeared in bit parts in 11 films – moved to CBS for his first leading role, as the amiable fresh-faced sidekick Rowdy Yates, in the television western series Rawhide. »

'Rawhide,' 'Magnum Force' Director Ted Post Has Died

21 August 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Prolific TV and film director Ted Post has died at the age of 95.

Although Post had his hand in a number of genres, he's perhaps most famous for his work on Westerns like "The Peacemaker," "Hang 'Em High" and "Rawhide" with Clint Eastwood, "Gunsmoke," and "Stagecoach." He also directed Eastwood (pictured above on set) in the "Dirty Harry" sequel "Magnum Force." Eastwood and Post didn't collaborate after that due to various disagreements.

Post also helmed the sequel "Beneath the Planet of the Apes," the pilot for "Cagney and Lacey," and more than a few episodes of "Peyton Place." Some of his more outré offerings include freaky horror exploitation flick "The Baby," "The Harrad Experiment" about swingin' sexual experimentation, and the Chuck Norris actioner "Good Guys Wear Black."

Post's legacy includes Pro Bono Productions, the nonprofit he started in 1996 to elevate the profiles of older actors in show business. "Our industry »
