Play Misty for Me
Clint Eastwood (making his very assured directorial debut) is a poetry-spouting stud-muffin DJ stalked by a maniacally amorous fan after a misguided one-night stand in this enjoyably schlocky, undeniably effective film about good intentions gone murderously wacky. Although many of the very '70s trappings presented here may ultimately be too dated to be taken seriously (including a very self-indulgent jazz number and a hilariously gooey seduction number between Eastwood and Donna Mills), the core premise of infatuation taken out of bounds remains uncomfortably plausible--and was influential enough to be appropriated by one of the biggest hits of the '80s. (Here's a hint--it starred Michael Douglas, Glenn Close, and a very unfortunate bunny rabbit). A well-staged and occasionally very frightening thriller worth watching for Jessica Walter's peerlessly unhinged performance alone. Frequent Eastwood collaborator Don Siegel (director of Dirty Harry, Coogan's Bluff, and The Beguiled, to name but a few) has a nice cameo as Murphy, the mustachioed, chess-playing bartender. --Andrew Wright

The Eiger Sanction
Clint Eastwood held the dual role of director and star of this 1975 spy thriller, which makes up for sluggish pacing with a breathtaking climax on a treacherous peak in the Swiss Alps. The plot kicks into gear when Eastwood, playing a retired assassin, is recruited back into a secret organization to avenge the murder of an old friend. He's then blackmailed into making a second "hit"; this time his target is one of three men who will be attempting to conquer the Eiger, a dangerous peak in Switzerland. Himself an accomplished climber, Eastwood's character joins the expedition with George Kennedy as leader of the ground crew. Shifting loyalties, apparent betrayals, and paranoid suspicion factor into the suspenseful climax on the sheer face of the mountain. This memorable sequence--for which Eastwood performed his own mountain-climbing stunts--is effectively intense, built on a standard plot of double-cross and intrigue that was intended to combine Eastwood's screen persona with the global adventure of the James Bond films. For the most part it works--it's not one of Eastwood's better films, but it's got some first-class thrills (and a sly performance by Jack Cassidy) to grab and hold your interest. --Jeff Shannon

Coogan's Bluff
Clint Eastwood stars as a soft-spoken, straightforward Arizona lawman whose unorthodox methods of capturing an escaped murderer anger a tough NYC police lieutenant.

The Beguiled
In this psychological thriller of love, betrayal and hidden passions, Clint Eastwood stars as a wounded soldier who finds shelter in an all-girls academy during the Civil War.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 early Eastwood films at a great price! February 18, 2009
Format:DVD
This mini 4 film collection is deal and a half. All 4 look great in their original aspect ratios and are enhanced for 16 X 9 widescreen TV's.
Audio is still the original mono but it sounds clean and clear.
Some good extra's on the Play Misty For Me disc, incl. a Clint Eastwood interview and the others have trailers and production notes.
Can't beat the value for the price!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Quartet of Eastwood Features February 27, 2009
Format:DVD
"Clint Eastwood: American Icon Collection" is a box set containing four Eastwood feature films. In his directorial debut, "Play Misty For Me," Eastwood stars as a radio DJ who becomes the victim of psychotic obsession when he tries to end a torrid affair with a fan (Jessica Walter) in a forerunner of "Fatal Attraction." "The Eiger Sanction" is an action thriller about a professional assassin who is forced out of retirement to avenge a friend's murder in the Swiss Alps. "Coogan's Bluff" finds Eastwood as a soft-spoken, no-nonsense Arizona lawman whose unusual methods of capturing an escaped murderer cause havoc with a tough New York City police lieutenant (Lee J. Cobb). "The Beguiled" is a psychological thriller that combines love, betrayal, and hidden passions. Eastwood is a wounded Civil War soldier who finds shelter in an all-girls academy.
In "The Beguiled," Eastwood's John McBurney is more of a sexual character than Eastwood typically portrays. Geraldine Page plays the wary headmistress and Elizabeth Hartman is the teacher who falls in love with him. Director Don Siegel shifts the tone of the film to one of horror about midway through, incorporating a good deal of violence.
The three-disc set includes many bonus extras, including a featurette on the making of "Play Misty For Me," a photo montage, production notes, and a featurette in which Eastwood and director Don Siegel discuss their five-film collaboration.

Format:DVD
Just got to say, Universal did a fantastic job on remastering these Eastwood classics. Never seen The Eiger Sanction look so good and anamorphic widescreen!! The colors aren't bleeding everywhere and the dirt is finally cleaned up. Play Misty For Me looks just as good! I am shocked these titles look this good at this super low price for these four classics. Could be because Play and Eiger have their own discs, where Coogan's Bluff and Beguiled share a disc. Even with two movies crammed on one disc, never seen The Beguiled look this good!
The video quality alone is worth the price and not the lack of special features. Would one day like to hear some Eastwood commentary on Play Misty for Me, but that is a small thing compared to this great package!
Now Universal needs to go back and remaster the three western pack (they look good, but could be better).
If you love the Universal films Eastwood did in the late '60s and '70s, do yourself the favor and grab this set. It's hard to believe all these together are under ten bucks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally Anamorphic. March 12, 2009
Format:DVD
This group of 4 movies are not Clint's greatest, but they are all finally done widescreen anamorphic.This is a big improvement in picture quality. The sound is good , but still just mono. Same audio/video quality as the previous "Western Icon Collection". My favorite in this group is "The Eiger Sanction", been waiting a long time for a decent presentation, and it's finally here and bargain priced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cant go wrong with Clint Eastwood December 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Eastwood's films. This package has 4 movie s on 3 disc. The Beguiled and Coogans Bluff come on one disc. But the disc is not double sided. Other 2 movies on separate disc. Good price for the four films.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Movies, Bargain Basement Cost. September 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My wife and I have been enjoying watching Clint Eastwood movies and we found this "American Icon Collection" of four of his movies (Play Misty for Me, The Eiger Sanction, Coogan's Bluff and The Beguilded). I don't regard this as a collection of Eastwood's better movies, but all are quite good entertainment. Plus, as packaged, the movies cost only a little over four dollars each and to get high quality movies at this price is indeed a bargain.

I reviewed each of the movies separately, so I see little need to go back over the reviews here since you can get my thoughts by going to any of the titles. My favorite was "Play Misty for Me. "My least favorite was "The Beguiled." "Coogan's Bluff would rank second and "The Eiger Sanction" third. I gave Misty five stars and the other three four. Any of the movies are excellent, it only a matter of individual taste in the ranking. The main benefit here is a package of very good movies at a bargain basement cost.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice collection October 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A good collection of his early films, including his first time as a director. Not much extra beyond the films except for a well done segment interviewing him about his role as a first-time director. an excellent segment, making the collection worth purchasing if you have seen all the films.
