Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood Clint Eastwood is Hollywood legend. He got his big break in 1959 when he starred as Rowdy Yates in the long-running television series “Rawhide.” He spent most of the ‘60s playing cowboys; in the ‘70s he trended toward tough-talking cops like Harry Callahan in “Dirty Harry,” and in the '80s he somehow landed a whole lot of military roles. Post-'80s highlight: Four Oscar awards for “Million Dollar Baby,” a film he directed and starred in, including Best Picture, Best Director. Post-'80s lowlight: Not too much has gone wrong for Clint over the years, but 1997’s “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” was not a great film. Where are they now? Eastwood did two films about World War II -- “Flags of Our Fathers” and “Letters From Iwo Jima,” two well-received 2008 films -- “The Changeling" with Angelina Jolie and "Gran Torino" -- and the South African sports drama "Invictus."
