Item description for Eastwood by Paul Duncan Douglas Keesey...
Go ahead, make my day
"I was one of the people who took the hero further away from the white hat. In A Fistful of Dollars, you didn't know who was the hero till a quarter of the way through the film, and then you weren't sure; you figured he was the protagonist, but only because everybody else was crappier than he was. I like the way heroes are now. I like them with strengths, weaknesses, lack of virtue."---Clint Eastwood
Having starred in 44 films and directed 27, Clint Eastwood is a living legend. This book traces the evolution of his star persona from the mysterious gunslingers he played in such Westerns as the Dollars trilogy, High Plains Drifter, Pale Rider, and Unforgiven, to the rogue cops and other troubled macho heroes he brought to life in the Dirty Harry films, The Gauntlet, Tightrope, Heartbreak Ridge, and In the Line of Fire. Along the way, Eastwood has also surprised his fans by taking uncharacteristic roles in comedies (Every Which Way But Loose), adventure films (White Hunter, Black Heart), and romantic movies (The Bridges of Madison County). In addition, no book on Eastwood would be complete without a look at some of the most acclaimed films he has directed, including Bird, Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, and Flags of Our Fathers.

Great photos, decent price Feb 11, 2007
This is an impressive collection of stills and photos from all of his films, including many I haven't seen before, and many that are quite interesting. There is some text, but its a Taschen book, so the emphasis is on art; i.e., interesting photos laid out in a nice manner. If you're an Eastwood fan, for under 10 bucks, I can pretty easily recommend this.
