"Eastwood on Eastwood" was originally a TNT cable special broadcast in 1997.The documentary was written,produced and directed by Richard Schickel,film critic for TIME magazine since the early '70's.He also wrote "Eastwood" the authorized biography in 1995.Mr.Schickel has also written and produced documentaries on actor Gary Cooper,Director Alfred Hitchcock,Director Stanley Kubrick and many others.He also made the entertaining documentary "Happy Anniversary 007:25 Years of James Bond" which was broadcast on network television in 1987.He also made "From Star Wars to "Jedi":The Making of a Saga" a terrific documentary about the "Star Wars Trilogy" from 1986.And,he has worked on some documentaries for The American Film Institute.

"Eastwood on Eastwood" is narrated by actor John Cusack who worked with Clint Eastwood on "Midnight in The Garden of Good and Evil" in 1997.That film also starred Kevin Spacey and Alison Eastwood,his then twenty-something daughter who also appears in this documentary.This tells of Eastwood growing up during The Great Depression to his two years in the U.S. Army to his days as a contract player doing mostly bit parts in low budget B-movies in the 1950's to his early years doing the television series "Rawhide" to the Italian "spaghetti" Westerns in the 1960's to his hit movies in the 1970's when he became a top box-office draw,a few times being the No.1 box-office attraction in the world, all the way up to the 1990's when he became an Oscar winning producer and director.In 1996 he won The American Film Institutes' Lifetime Achievement Award which is considered by the film community the greatest honor an actor or director can receive,even more than The Academy Award.

This features many film clips and the highlight is the interview and commentary by Eastwood himself on his personal favorite film roles.This runs just over 90 minutes,is digitally processed so the picture and sound is terrific.I have been a Clint Eastwood fan since around 1972 and I believe my fellow Eastwood fans will enjoy this documentary as much as I did.
