Very good but it misses all of his great recent stuff..., 1 June 2012
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This is one of several short films included on the bonus disc for "Unforgiven". This is narrated by John Cusack (who talks in a raspier--more Eastwood-like voice than usual) as well as Eastwood himself--who talks to the viewer.

The biggest deficit of this film is that it came out in 1997--well before many of the best films Eastwood directed (such as "Gran Torino" and "Million Dollar Baby"). In other words, it sure would be great if they would update this film or create a new one to address the entirety of his career.

The show isn't so much a biography but a filmography. It begins with his early Universal Studios bit parts then progresses to his TV appearances on "Rawhide". Then his film career is discussed--beginning with his Italian westerns and moving to his American-made films with Don Siegel (such as "Dirty Harry"). Then it discusses the films he directed and makes its way to the present day of 1997. All in all, quite interesting but it just isn't complete enough.

By the way, I would have LOVED to have heard Eastwood talking about his starring in "Paint Your Wagon"--a memorable film because Eastwood was so inappropriately cast. Instead, oddly, they talked a lot about "The Beguiled"--a rather bad Eastwood film--and one most folks have never seen. Also, it seemed odd that they talked about the Dirty Harry films in depth--but not "Magnum Force". And no mention of specific Italian westerns....odd.
