Changing of the guard. John Wayne to whom we´ve payed homage at 26th of May didn´t get a role in Hollywood he was eager to play. For Warner Brothers he was to old, 63 years that time. The part of the San Francisco Police Departement Inspector “Dirty” Harry Callahan has got the man of the day we heartly congratulate on his birthday. Clint Eastwood is now 80 years old, a living Hollywood legend. Monumental like John Wayne. Clint Eastwood is an old master – and he is not at all tired, he the “guy who is making movies”.
John Wayne´s quote “Speak slow, speak low and don´t say to much” would perfectly fit to Clint Eastwood, especially to his role of the man without name we´ve seen in the sixties of the last century in the Spaghetti Western A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars more, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Clint Eastwood only needed to squint his eyes and to move the cigarillo between his lips; I don´t remember an actor who got such a high profil with so minimal. means. He is really laconic. Here you can see The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Finale with the music of Ennio Morricone, “Go ahead …” Clint Eastwood says to Eli Wallach.
PAROL pays homage to Clint Eastwood with a scarf the legendary catchphrase is knitted into it
Everybody knows the movies of Clint Eastwood and has some favorite ones. But Clint Eastwood was also a very good pianist, he is a Jazz-Afficionado – I like very much his Charlie Parker movie “Bird” – , he has written an composed also a lot of soundtracks. Obviously he enjoyed to sing, please listen “Beers to you” he has sung with Ray Charles. It must been a very, very good time and a very wet joke – and I need to be a bit tipsy because it´s not easy to honour two guys if this size in only one week. Okay?
