Clint (Make my day!) Eastwood

                                                     GET OFF A MY LAWN!

Clint Eastwood has been one of my favorite actors of all time. Starting with his starring role in Raw Hide as Rowdy Yates from 1959 to 1965 through the spaghetti westerns of the 60’s to the Dirty Harry movies of the 70’s and 80’s, he has come to be the iconic “off the wall” grouch that everybody loves to watch get even. He’s always played a tough guy with a nervous trigger finger and a short temper, but in the end he shows his humanity. Gran Torino (2008) is one of his best efforts and a picture to remember with a face that begs to be cartooned.
