Clint is one of my all-time favourite directors/actors. There's more art in one Eastwood scene than in Tom Cruise's career overall :D. But I was a bit disapointed by Gran Torino I must say. Still a good movie, but by far not one of Clint's bests I think. Too many stereotypes for my linking I guess. Still, people have to go see it ! Twice ! :D

... Tout à fait d'accord avec toi Frank, plus un film testamentaire qu'un chef d'oeuvre, à mes yeux...

Hehe yes indeed Milt ! For some of our European members who might wonder, the Smothers Brothers were, IIRC, popular tv hosts of the era. They owned and raced many racing cars in the 1960/70s.
So any chance you can get me an autograph of Clint Very Happy ? Preferably on a pic William Munny entering the saloon you know lol!
