“There’s a rebel lying deep in my soul.”
~ Clint Eastwood
~ Born May 31, 1930
Ruggedly handsome and immensely talented, Clint Eastwood – actor, director, producer, composer, businessman and politician – is an American icon, born May 31, 1930.
After achieving success in the Western TV series “Rawhide” (1959-1965), Eastwood rose to international fame with his role as the Man with No Name in Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone’s “Dollars Trilogy” of spaghetti Westerns during the 1960s and as antihero cop Harry Callahan in the five “Dirty Harry” films throughout the 1970s and 1980s. These roles, among others, have made Eastwood an enduring cultural icon of masculinity.
Eastwood has starred in such films as “The Beguiled” (1971), “Play Misty for Me” (1971), “Every Which Way But Loose” (1978), and “The Bridges Of Madison County” (1995), and directed films including “American Sniper” (2014).
Clint Eastwood strikes a pose in this image, likely from the late 1960s or early 1970s, in which his eyes seem to be a window to his quote, “There’s a rebel lying deep in my soul.” It’s Clint being just Clint … and he indeed gives this girl the vapors!
I processed this photo in sepia and added background texture by Jai Johnson for artistic effect.
