Biography
A tall, soft-spoken and leathery leading man since the 1960s, Clint Eastwood diversified into directing and producing after achieving iconic status. He grew up in Depression-era California, where his parents were itinerant workers. After high school, he worked various odd jobs (e.g., lumberjack, pianist) and served in the US Army. After attending Los Angeles City College. he was signed by Universal where he was featured in a string of B-movies before gaining recognition as trail boss Rowdy Yates in the successful TV series Rawhide.

Tight TV schedules and good training helped him develop the minimalist acting style for which he is famous; it was first appreciated in Europe where he starred in a trilogy of popular spaghetti westerns directed by Sergio Leone. Sinewy, laconic and lethal, he embodied to Europeans the maverick, unpredictably violent American, whose philosophy in A Fistful of Dollars (1964) was "everybody gets rich or dead." For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966) became classic revisionist Westerns and made Eastwood an international star. He returned stateside and starred in Coogan's Bluff (1968), a smart urban oater that marked the beginning of his long and successful collaboration with director Don Siegel.
