Clint Eastwood

Universal Pictures

Remarkably, Clint Eastwood isn’t just a star of the 1970s who is still going strong — he was a star in the 1950s, when he broke out in 1950s films including Francis in the Navy, The First Traveling Saleslady and Ambush at Cimarron Pass.

The 1960s brought a steady role on the TV show Rawhide, and he became one of the most iconic stars of the 1960s in Sergio Leone’s “Man With No Name” trilogy: A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, The Bad and the Ugly (1966).

He loomed large in the 1970s with the Dirty Harry franchise, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, and Escape from Alcatraz, but he also notably launched his directing career in 1970 with 1971’s Play Misty for Me, in which he also starred (above).

His stunning filmmaking career includes two Oscars each for directing and producing The Unforgiven (1993) and Million Dollar Baby (2005). His other outstanding films include Mystic River (2003), Letters From Iwo Jima (2006) and American Sniper (2014).

Now 93, he continues to star in and direct films — his latest was 2021’s Cry Macho, and he’ll next star in and direct the upcoming Juror #2.
