Celebrating 10 Years in the making…

I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year. January 2017 actually marks our 10th Year; it’s hard to figure out where those 10 years went? I was hoping that the Archive would reach the magical landmark One million hits by January, but at a little over 860,000 hits (at the time of writing this), it looks a little unlikely. Nevertheless, I’m still very proud of what has been achieved in those 10 years. I have of course, had a great deal of help along the way with many friends contributing articles, news, images and more importantly, encouragement. I like to think The Clint Eastwood Archive is the best of its kind on the web. Where possible, every image has been restored for detail which, while often time consuming, I believe makes all the difference and makes the Archive what it is. It’s also been a great year for Clint with the success of Sully. It’s always encouraging seeing Clint wasting no time in planning and developing the next project. The man shows no signs of slowing up, and as fans and admirers of his work that can only be a good thing. As well as continuing to bring you all the latest news, there is still an enormous amount of past material and stories to add to the Archive. The real problem is time, pulling out and the scanning of material does take time, but as always I will endeavour to add as much as possible in the coming year.

In closing, I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to visit the Archive, for either educational purposes or just for pleasure. I like to think that the time and effort which goes into this site at least serves a purpose and of course keeps Clint’s incredible legacy fresh, accurate and above all, accessible to future generations. 
Thank you all.
