Clint Eastwood Photo Opportunity #11

Here's a nice shot of Clint sitting alongside rat packer Dean Martin. The photo is believed to be from the 29th Annual Bing Crosby National Pro-Am Golf Tournament and Clambake on January 22, 1970 - although sources and information seem to vary. 
The big name celebrities were certainly impressive;  Dean Martin, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Johnny Weissmuller, Sean Connery, George C. Scott, Mike Douglas, John Brodie, Charles Schulz, Willie Mays, Clint and many more would go on to play in the clambake.
Crosby died of a heart attack on a Spanish golf course in 1977, and his son Nathaniel and wife, Kathryn, kept the pro-am thriving for years - until AT&T took over sponsorship in 1986.
