With his steely gaze, enigmatic aura and tough-guy persona, five-time Academy Award- and five-time Golden Globe-winner Clint Eastwood has been a Hollywood superstar for nearly six decades. Actor, director, producer, writer and composer, Eastwood has mesmerized audiences with his anti-hero performances beginning in 1959 with a lead role in TV's Rawhide and in dozens of hit films, including the 'Dirty Harry' series and 'The Man With No Name,' to name a few. As the director of such box office hits as 'Gran Torino,' 'Million Dollar Baby' and 'Unforgiven' (in all of which he also starred), 'Letters From Iwo Jima' and 'Mystic River,' he is an equal powerhouse behind the lens. Eastwood made one foray into politics in the mid '80s as mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif. (pop. 4,000), a wealthy artists' community. Upon being elected, President Ronald Reagan called to ask, 'What's an actor who once appeared with a monkey in a movie doing in politics?' a reference to Eastwood's role in 'Any Which Way But Loose' and Reagan's in 'Bedtime for Bonzo'. As tight-lipped off set as his macho screen personas... meet the real man behind the mask. BONUS MATERIAL: Four featurettes, including 'Letters From Iwo Jima,' 'Invictus,' 'Globally Renowned' and 'Flags of Our Fathers.'
