In the cinematographic ephemeris, May 31 is the day of Clint eastwood. It’s his birthday. A day that all the fans of his cinema celebrate with fervor and that, of course, they also honor in TCM.
This Monday Clint eastwood turns 91 and is still at the foot of the canyon, finishing his next film, Cry Male, a film that he directs and stars, and that tells the story of a retired rodeo rider who helps a child. He already warned himself: if there was a good story to tell and if his health allowed it, he would get back in front of and behind the cameras. And the nonagenarian Clint he has kept his word.
They want to celebrate the birthday of Clint eastwood in a very special way, dedicating the whole day to his figure and his cinema. Monday, May 31 TCM will broadcast eight of his most significant and remembered films. Titles, among others, such as Without forgiveness, for which in 1993 he doubled at the Oscars ceremony, winning the awards for best director and best film; The bridges of Madison, the film with which he broke with his cold and tough guy image, making viewers cry with the tender autumn love story he starred in with Meryl streep; Dirty Harry, where he exploits his harder and more violent side playing the policeman Harry Callahan or For a bunch of dollars Y The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, two of the spaghetti-westerns that shot in Spain under the orders of Sergio Leone.
It will be the best way to enhance and honor one of the most brilliant, prestigious and popular film careers in American cinema.
