Biography


Clint Eastwood, actually named Clinton Eastwood Jr., was born on May 31, 1930 in San Francisco. Despite the fact that his father was only a steelworker, Eastwood is well known as an American movie actor and director, famous for his "tough guy" roles. Previously did a stint in the United States Army, he then moved to Los Angeles to study at Los Angeles College, where he primarily studied business administration, but eventually dropped out.

There he tried to get into the movie business by becoming an actor and appearing in such B-films, as "Tarantula" (1955) and "Francis in the Navy" (1955). His first break, indeed, came in 1959 when he landed in the long-running TV series, "Rawhide." Playing the role of Rowdy Yates, he made the show his own that it became a household name around the country. In 1964 Italian director Sergio Leone asked Eastwood to take part in his film direction entitled "A Fistful of Dollars" (Per un pugno di dollari), which soon followed by "For a Few Dollars More" (Per qualche dollaro in pił) released in 1965. A year after, Leone asked him to one more time played in his film entitled "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" (Il Buono, il brutto, il cattivo), where he found one of his best known trademark roles, the mysterious "man with no name." Those three films were hits, particularly the third, which made Eastwood becoming an instant international star, redefining the traditional image of the American cowboy.
