A reminder. What most defines Clint Eastwood is a gun in the face. From a FEW DOLLARS MORE to DIRTY HARRY to GRAND TORINO. Grand Torino’s most memorable line and graphic is Clint with a shotgun to his shoulder saying GET OFF MY LAWN. But he is most beloved for what defines him the most, the line MAKE MY DAY. The graphic of looking down a .44 magnum is typical action movie fair. But it is those 3 words that define sentiment, I WANT TO KILL, I ENJOY KILLING, GIVE ME AN EXCUSE TO KILL, I CELEBRATE KILLING. That is why we love him so. He is our generation’s John Wayne. I think of the many movies Eastwood has been in or directed, I can only thing of two which were not guns. The same cannot be said about John Wayne. For try as I might I can think of no movie in his 40 year career where is was not shooting the shit out of lots and lots of people. America’s two greatest actors!
