Considering Clint Eastwood...

What was his best role or character as an actor? 

If different, what was his best multi film role?

What was his best movie as a director?

Best Role: Toss-up between Jose Wales and Dirty Harry. Billy Mummy in The Forgiven was also very good, and his character in The Mule I thought really showed his versatility as an actor

Best Movie as a director: Grand Torino. He was also very good in the lead role.

I know a couple of people from when I lived in L.A. who have worked with him. One, a production accountant, and the other, an actress who was an extra in one of his films and lived in Carmel when he was Mayor, and just about everyone who's ever worked with him seems to like him

No, I don't think he died.

Clint is the original tough guy. He was a tough guy before the delivery room doctor slapped Chuck Norris's ass and Chuck slapped him back.

On that note, When the doctor drew back to slap Clint's ass, Clint said.........

Sudden Impact comes to my mind right away anytime I think of Clint.  I guess because of how ugly that AutoMag is.  Probably fun to shoot considering all ugly guns are fun to shoot it seems. :D

So far as I know he is still alive and healthy. I posted the questions because I’ve recently run across the phrase “get off my lawn” several times.

His best role was the time he spoke to an empty chair.

Actor: The Outlaw Josey Wales "Well, are you gonna pull those Pistols or Whistle Dixie?"

or the Unforgiven " All right, I'm coming out! Any man I see out there, I'm gonna kill him! Any sonofabitch takes a shot at me.. I'm not only gonna kill him, I'm gonna kill his wife, all his friends, and burn his damn house down!"

 

Director: Unforgiven, Jersey Boys as a close second.

Role is a tossup between Jose Wales and Unforgiven to me.

Gran Torino is almost a masterpiece in role and directing.

Let's forget Pink Cadillac.

Television was better then.

We killed the cable box about 10 years ago.  When the last TV died about two years ago....we did not replace it.

Besides...i am a radio junkie.  Love it.   Run my own station (ham)

I am surprised that no one has mentioned Million Dollar Baby.

A great story, remarkable acting.

l delivered a metal hangar building to Clint's Ranch in Northern calif in 1988. He flew his own helicopter to the ranch. It was a twin rotor. He  would go into town occasionally and buy drinks for the whole place.  The ranch prior owner was Bing Crosby. 2500 acres.

Friend of mine has one and shoots it in league.  He says it's expensive and time consuming making ammo.
