As an actor, he seduces us with his tough-guy charm. As a director and producer, he amazes us with his artistry and technical savvy. As a Hollywood icon, Clint Eastwood, one of films greatest living legends, represents some of the finest cinematic achievements in the history of American cinema. In American Rebel, bestselling author and acclaimed film historian Marc Eliot examines the ever-exciting, often-tumultuous arc of Clint Eastwoods life and career. Unlike past biographers, Eliot writes with unflinching candor about Eastwoods highs and lows, his artistic successes and failures, and the fascinating, complex relationship between his life and his craft. Eliots prodigious research reveals how a college dropout and unambitious playboy rose to fame as Hollywoods sexy rebel, eventually and against all odds becoming a star in the Academy pantheon as a multiple Oscar winner. Spanning decades, American Rebel covers the best of Eastwoods oeuvre, films that have fast become American classics: Fistful of Dollars, Dirty Harry, Unforgiven, Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, and Gran Torino. Filled with remarkable insights into Eastwoods personal life and public work, American Rebel is highly entertaining and the most complete biography of one of Hollywoods truly respected and beloved stars: an actor who, despite being the Man with No Name, has left his indelible mark on the world of motion pictures.
