Happy 80th, Clint
31st May, 2010
Rumour has it that Clint Eastwood is trying to keep his 80th birthday a low key affair, and dodging all the attempts to Make His Day. Either way, he shows no signs of slowing down, with two more director credit movies on the way to follow last year's Invictus, although no further on-screen appearances seem to be slated since 2008's Gran Torino. His career to date spans five and a half decades, from early tv, to Rawhide, to the classic spaghetti westerns, US westerns, war movies, light comedy, the iconic Dirty Harry Callahan, and the more recent and Oscar winning turns behind as well as in front of the camera. There's not enough room here - so let's just say Many Happy Returns, Clint.
