I like old movies ( and some new ones) but this is one of my favorite scenes from a great actor Eli Wallach who is turning 97 years old.

They dont make movies like that anymore, really a shame! The Outlaw Josey Wales is another great Eastwood movie.

One of my favorite ending scenes is from "The great Escape" when the germans capture Steve McQueen and they stick him back in the "cooler" he starts throwing the ball against the wall.

I can remember watching The Good the Bad and the Ugly with my dad and just being mesmerized by Clint Eastwood. Hang em High, Pale Rider, The Outlaw Josey Wales, and Unforgiven were right up there on my list. He's one of my favorite actors,

My intro was A Fist Full of Dollars (highschool). I loved his 'spaghetti westerns'.

Most of Sergio Leone's movies were filmed in Spain. Yet they called them spaghetti westernsSmile

Jerry, absolutely, one of my all-time favourites.
Sergio Leone redefined western movies in his own quirky way.

Pale Rider might very well be my favourite one out of all the Westerns Clint Eastwood has stared in...

Just before I left the UK to move here (USA) I treated myself to all (on DVD) the Westerns Clint Eastwood has stared in. The wife doesn't really enjoy them and our two son's are still too young to watch them, so once in a while I will stay up most of the night watching 3 or 4 of them, one after the other Smile
