Clint Eastwood from Rawhide to Pale Rider – the man and his films (English translated edition) by François Guérif is a book which originated from France. The book was translated into English by Lisa Nesselson. I always liked this particular book as I remember it the first to provide a full Rawhide episode guide and some nice French advertisements for the Dollar films. Unfortunately, although generally well-illustrated throughout, the reproduction of stills was not the best in quality.
The book is a large paperback format measuring approx. 9.1” x 8.3” in size and consists of 200 pages. It was first published in the UK by Roger Houghton publishers in 1986 and carried the Pale Rider photograph cover (left).
There was also an American version (below) released in the same year and published by St. Martin’s Press / New York. Whilst the content was identical the cover was considerably different with a painting (which appears to be from Sudden Impact) by Marc Cozza. Overall, a pretty enjoyable read. The book can still be found these days on both Ebay and Amazon, and can be picked relatively cheaply dependant on condition.
