Spike Lee verus Clint Eastwood While talking to the press for his film, "The Miracle at St. Anna," at the Cannes Film Festival, Spike Lee claimed Clint Eastwood used too few black actors as soldiers in his film, "Flags of Our Fathers." Eastwood responded in the press by saying his films were historically accurate and that Lee should "shut his face." Lee told ABCNews.com, "First of all, the man is not my father and we're not on a plantation." He then said Eastwood sounded like an angry old man. Lee later told The New Yorker magazine that he ended the feud by telling Steven Spielberg to tell Eastwood that it was over.
