In 'Play Misty for Me' (1971) Dave Garland (Clint Eastwood) is a Californian DJ who runs a late night call-in show, and receives regular requests from a female caller for Erroll Garner's 'Misty'. The fan, Evelyn Draper (Jessica Walter), turns out to be a maniacal stalker.

In the western 'High Plains Drifter' (1973) the unwelcome arrival of a stranger (Eastwood) in the town of Lagos causes resentment and fear among the locals. However, when they come under threat from a band of escaped convicts, it is to the stranger that the townsfolk turn for salvation.

In 'The Beguiled' (1970), during the American Civil War, a wounded Union soldier (Eastwood) is taken in by the all-female staff of a Confederate Louisiana girls' school as their 'prize'. However, the soldier cunningly plays the women off against each other, working on their sexual frustrations and biding his time until he can make an escape.

'Breezy' (1973) is an Eastwood-directed effort in which Breezy (Kay Lenz) is a teenage hippy hitchhiker taken advantage of by a ruthless rotter who wants to use her for sex. She escapes in a remote area and meets kindly middle-aged man Frank Harmon (William Holden) whom she hopes will take her in. Harmon is (rightfully) reluctant and his worst imaginable scenario comes true when the impressionable teen falls in love with him.

In 'Joe Kidd' (1972) Eastwood plays a drunken tracker coerced by American business tycoon Robert Duvall to go in search of Mexican agitator John Saxon. The film is scripted by renowned crime writer Elmore Leonard.

In 'Two Mules for Sister Sarah' (1969) a gold-digger (Eastwood) in old Mexico shows his fundamentally noble nature by saving a 'nun' (Shirley Maclaine) from being raped. She turns out in fact to be a prostitute, and the odd couple team up, facing continual confrontation with the French forces.

In 'Coogan's Bluff' (1968) Eastwood is Arizona deputy Walt Coogan, sent to New York city to escort a prisoner home. The prisoner isn't ready to be transferred back to Arizona so Coogan cuts a few corners. This helps the prisoner escape and, after Coogan clashes with the Sherrif McElroy (Lee J. Cobb), he is ordered back to Arizona.

In 'The Eiger Sanction' (1975) college lecturer Jonathan Hemlock (Eastwood) tops up his university paypacket by carrying out the occasional assassination. His latest assignment involves joining a climbing expedition up the Eiger, identifying the Russian killer amongst the group, and then neutralising his threat.

​No extras. Possibly a trailer on some of them

Great price, only one not starring the man himself (Breezy). Can't wait for Sofia Coppola's take on 'The Beguiled' starring Colin Farrell oO

poor Colin has lost his way....

Great value, although these movies are far from his best.

Cold as doesn't include his two best films. Every Which Way but Loose and the superior sequel Every Which Way you can.

Excellent and coincidentally I don't have a single one of these 8 films - while having many others of his.

A good deal for any hardcore Eastwood fans I guess, but be honest, if any of these films were on TV would you so much as even think about watching or recording it?

Go on get them, you know deep down you want to
The picture on these is about as good as you'll get for now, and with films like High Plains Drifter and The Eiger Sanction, it's nice to be able to see small figures in the wide landscape shots, not just fuzzy blobs on screen.

Just over a quid each, cant go wrong.

and voted a hot deal while I'm at it

All those discs in the picture put playing-surface down. I'm wincing at the potential scratching.

Yeah but it's an advert picture, who wants to see the shiny side detailing even less or... just possibly you highlighting scratch free shiny disc's as you would prefer.

brand new?

All the Clint Eastwood films i dont have

Surely Unforgiven is his best

Surely Unforgiven is his best



Some will definitely agree but not for me. Good film though, no doubt, but overrated as the best Western ever and even his IMO. Prefer his Leone trilogy and even Outlaw Josey Wales.

great price!play misty was was the first clint movie i ever seen,who'd have thought i'd run into my own evelyn many years later! (not quite to the same degree, thankfully☺),In the Line of Fire and Perfect World are two of my all time favourites! love clint!

Its the only reason this box set keeps getting posted...

The old set was worse!

Good find. 1 purchased Thanks Apogee00

If these editions had some documentaries and commentaries on them - perhaps from film historians as I can't see Clint himself contributing - this would be a must-buy set at that price. Some real gems here. I'm tempted!

Maybe at a push 3 and a half decent films. Surprising amount of filler considering what films could have been included. I'll keep my £10.80 ta,

This has made my day (_;)

So many great movies. Highlights just how poor modern CGI obsessed yawnfests are.

That's harsh. More than 3.5 gems here. I would say it's a decent spread of his earlier films. Not his best and not his worst, but definitely worth £10.80.

ah, thats ok you can disagree. I find the use of the word 'gems' in your reply equally mindblowing. Why pay that for 'not his best and not his worst' ?

excellent!! cheers!!
