Clint: The Life and Legend
HarperCollins, 1999 - 612 páginas
Like The Man With No Name, one of his most famous roles, Clint Eastwood has about him the aura of a mysterious past. But the real Clint, previously only imperfectly glimpsed, has never been so honestly revealed as in this biography by one of American's top film writers.
In spending four years researching the actor's life and career, poring through court documents, studio archives and unpublished manuscripts, interviewing friends, family and associates, many of whom have never before dared to cooperate with a writer unauthorized by Clint, Patrick McGilligan has produced an investigative tour de force. He traces the many ways in which unpleasant details of Clint's life have been airbrushed by publicity and the press, goes behind the scenes of all his films, describes his strengths and weaknesses as actor, director and producer, and examines his many roving relationships with women. The result is a candid portrayal that rewrites Clint's place in film history.
