Director Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood has had an impressive career as an actor (the "Spaghetti Westerns," the Dirty Harry series, the Every Which Way comedies, Escape from Alcatraz, and one of my personal favorites In the Line of Fire), but even more outstanding has been the body of work he's delivered (and continues to create) behind the camera lens as a director.

From beginning to end, his filmography is loaded with quality cinema.
