Eastwood’s illustrious motion picture career has spanned more than half century and has touched generations of filmgoers. Warner Home Video will celebrate Eastwood and his 35-year association with the studio through Malpaso Productions with a comprehensive, elegant gift set, Clint Eastwood: 35 Films 35 Years at Warner Bros., to be released February 16th 2010.

The collection, considered the largest feature film box set ever released for a single artist, contains 34 classic Eastwood films from the Warner library and highlights the breadth and depth of his work – from Where Eagles Dare through Gran Torino. Included are his ‘Dirty Harry’ movies, his Best Picture Oscar dramas and nominees, his westerns, his war movies, his comedies, and more.

Also included is the 35th film, The Eastwood Factor, an intimate short film from Time magazine critic and film historian Richard Schickel. The Eastwood Factor presents Eastwood in a way he is rarely seen – visiting film locations or sites where his movies were created, and on the Warner lot visiting the costume department and Eastwood Scoring Stage, as well as at his home. Eastwood’s candid, intelligent and often humorous interviews about his body of work and the choices he made, along with Schickel’s selection of scenes from his movies (Including his latest Invictus), results in an up close and personal portrait of one of the great icons of our era. The end result is a clear reminder of why Eastwood’s career as both a great filmmaker and actor has been so enduring and his work so respected.

The Box set will also include a 24-page booklet extracted from Richard Schickel’s new monograph Clint: A Retrospective (which I hope to review in full), as well as studio letters and photos. Packed in a 20 page double-wide album, Clint Eastwood: 35 Films 35 Years at Warner Bros, will contain 19 discs and will sell for $179.98.
