  1. Wow, 92 is impressive, John. Clint Eastwood is the same age as my aunt, my mom’s oldest sister (my mom is the youngest). I always loved Clint Eastwood. “Go ahead, make my day!”

  2. I rarely go to the movies anymore, but one of the best films I saw in the last few years was The Mule. Eastwood was brilliant in that.

  4. it’s hard to pick a favorite Clint movie, I’ve really loved him in so many films


  5. Clint Eastwood is very popular here in Spain. They run his movies on TV back to back all day long often. He filmed some of his early movies here of course. You can still visit the sets. Hubby has been to a couple of them. https://discovery.cathaypacific.com/tracking-clint-eastwood-spain-5-spectacular-movie-locations/

  6. On balance, I think my favourite Clint film and performance is still The Outlaw Josey Wales. It had all the right elements of a great western, but also included a civil war theme, some humour, and a very different view of Native Americans.
    Best wishes, Pete.
