The DeAgostini Classic Clint Eastwood Collection 2004 - 2006

Back in 2004 DeAgostini started to release (fortnightly) a collection of Magazines with an accompanying DVD. Consisting of 52 issues, the collection of films was a pretty good representation of Clint's movie legacy, notable titles that did not make the collection included Paramount films such as Escape from Alcatraz and Paint your Wagon and Universal's Breezy. As with any collection such as this, most fans would of course have the majority of these films already in their own collections.
What made this set a little different was that it also included quite a few rare and early titles, in particular, some of Clint's early bit part movies (many of which were first time releases on DVD) and some excellent and vital gap fillers.
As the Magazines are not too much to shout about in terms of content, the DVDs were certainly worth picking up individually for certain titles and without the commitment of subscribing.
With a subscription to the collection came a bag of enticing gifts which included:
An exclusive DVD storage box
A Clint T-shirt which featured Dirty Harry artwork
A pair of Dirty Harry re pro sunglasses
A stylish binder to hold the magazines
A Music for the movies of Clint Eastwood Compact Disc

A big thank you to my good friend Mal Baker who helped in providing the images for this collection.
