"Clint Eastwood single handedly revived the western form with his Spaghetti Trilogy,High Plains Drifter,
The Outlaw Josey Wales,Unforgiven.He translated and
updated this into the urban cowboy genre,Dirty Harry.
He made excellent smaller films like Bronco Billy and
Escape from Alcatraz,Thunderbolt and Lightfoot.His
directorial films showed what he'd learned from Siegel:
Play Misty For Me,Outlaw Josey Wales,Perfect World,Unforgiven.Now in full fruition with Mystic River,
Million Dollar Baby and Letters from Iwojima and some."
