Summary "In his recent films - Unforgiven, Mystic River, and Million Dollar Baby - Clint Eastwood has revealed himself as a greater figure than moviegoers imagined him to be. The contributors to this volume revisit and examine his career as an actor and director, and are part of the growing critical evaluation of Eastwood's films. A common thread among the essays is respect for his cinematic storytelling. They examine how he put his individual stamp on particular genres, and extend and enrich our understanding of his varied achievements."--Jacket.
