WEEKEND SERIES The Essential Clint Eastwood February 12 - February 26
"I suppose Clint Eastwood is the most underrated director in the world today... an actor like Eastwood is such a pure type of mythic hero-star in the Wayne tradition that no one is going to take him seriously as a director. But someone ought to say it. And when I saw The Outlaw Josey Wales for the fourth time, I realized that it belongs with the great Westerns... And I take my hat off to him."—Orson Welles.
To mark the release of a DVD boxed set of thirty-five Warner Bros. films directed by or starring Clint Eastwood, LACMA presents a weekend series comprised of nine films, plus four matinees. Starting with genre films-the cop thrillers (Dirty Harry) and westerns (The Outlaw Josey Wales) that brought him early acclaim-the series culminates with his mature dramas Honkytonk Man, Unforgiven, Bird, and White Hunter, Black Heart, all of which represent a remarkable range of subject matter. A masterful storyteller and an effortless practitioner of classical mise-en-scene, Eastwood has earned a place in film history among such classically American directors as John Ford, Howard Hawks, King Vidor, and John Huston.Below: Inside of the L. A. County Museum, some wonderful Eastwood displays
Our thanks to Clint Eastwood, Richard Schickel, and Warner Home Entertainment for their generous assistance in making this series possible.
