The author David Frangioni is a passionate collector of all things Clint Eastwood. He has amassed an amazing collection of posters and memorabilia, dating way back to the 1964's A Fistful of Dollars to the 2008's Gran Torino. They are all in this book, properly labeled and arranged chronologically. There are not only English posters, but also in Japanese, Spanish and other languages. Thomas Schatz writes the biography.

This is an oversized art book and the posters are printed large -- closeups feature almost life-size heads. Movies are made in a time where posters are still painted traditionally. There are many of those in this book. If you're a Clint Eastwood fan, you'll probably be transported back in time.

This is a great book for all fans of Clint Eastwood.

This beautiful printed tome gathers posters, promotional art, and advertising from around the globe, chronologically organized and covering every production of Clint Eastwood's iconic career. I honestly could not believe the detail and scope of this book when I bought it as a gift for a friend and avid Clint Eastwood fan. It prompted me to get my own :)

There have been many biographies of Eastwood but this is the first book I've seen that literally illustrates his entire career. Each chapter, organized by decade, is accompanied by essays from Tom Schatz--the head of the U. Texas Film Dept., Austin, who apparently teaches an annual 'Clint Eastwood' course. If you're looking for a great gift for the movie buff in your family, a great film book for your library, or just a really good looking and interesting book for the holidays this is it!

(I also can't wait to see Invictus!)

Wow! This is an incredible collection of art for Clint Eastwood's movies, packed into an oversized book of outstanding quality. Crystal clear images of some of Eastwood's greatest films. There is a beautiful collection and if you are an Eastwood fan, do not miss this. As you may see from my other reviews, these are the types of books that I go crazy over. I hope they continue to be published. Truly a poster fanatic's dream. I do not know where else you could find this much quality in one place, much less one book at less than $30, a fantastic bargain. You will hate yourself if you miss this book.

Format: Hardcover
EXCELLENT expose of Clint Eastwood's life...I daresay he would reluctantly agree <due to the stuff he did NOT want aired> but it is most tastefully presented in a matter-of-fact format airing as much, if not more positive about his talents than we've ever really heard about. He is, as they say, who he is...a cool dude seemingly over confident but really, just sure of where he's been and what he has wanted from life. Very, very good job of sharing his life professionally and personally in giving us a bit of an "inside look" to this oftentimes misunderstood guy.

Good reading. Strongly recommend.

Format: Hardcover
Clint Eastwood Icon: The Essential Film Art Collection is an extraordinary coffee-table book packed cover to cover with vintage, full-color photographs of art (especially movie flyers and posters) pertaining to Clint Eastwood's legendary Hollywood career. From rugged gunman to dashing, gun-toting mercenary to heartthrob icon, Clint Eastwood and the essence of his advertised films is depicted in timeless, vivid detail. Some of the flyers and posters portrayed are from nations around the world, revealing how Eastwood's movies were advertised and depicted in other nations. Brief essays and descriptive captions accompany the cornucopia of classic imagery, in this absolute "must-have" for dedicated Eastwood fans.

I was very pleased after receiving my copy from Amazon, the book was much larger than i expected. Any Clint Eastwood Fan would be impressed by the content, page after page of big glossy movie art. The Artwork is not just in English, but Japanese, Italian, Spanish etc, many variations of each of Clint's movies concluding with Gran Torino (2008) This copy was a gift for a friend, i will be ordering another copy for myself, @ $26.00, this book is a bargain.
