Another Stint For Clint

Mr Clint Eastwood, one top dollar guy Other film makers just watch him and sigh With back catalogues they can sit back and rest on Our Clint has released a brand new neo-western Cry Macho’s the title, I’ve not seen it yet But it will be ‘wicked’ on that you can bet My wife said that cowboy is ninety years old He won’t stampede horses he won’t dig for gold I told her I don’t know what it’s all about But Hollywood know how will figure it out Maybe he’ll shoot folk and watch them all die And then tell his nurse he can’t remember why That one time gunslinger, occasional singer Gets on screen come ons from each passing humdinger There’s cheroots and liquor, yet what he wants most A box of viagra… he might need a gross I mean no offence to that great fellow, Clint Who gets propositioned by each passing bint If my ridicule seems a tad over zealous Don’t worry, Clint… it’s just that I’m jealous!

I always had Clint as a shrewed guy, at 91 we all now know why . . . ; )

I’m glad he won’t eventually leave us as ‘that spaghetti western bloke’. Haven’t seen all of his movies but I’ve enjoyed all those I have seen (which probably is NEARLY all). Terry

Enjoyed, but found it hard to believe the only Italian he learnt was how to say the Director's name . . . .

Do you feel Lucky, Macho? Doesn’t quite have that ring to it. Glad you enjoyed, Rico. Terry

Hello Terry ... I remember Clint acting the role of rowdy yates in rawhide and that seems like eons ago. Hasn't he come on since then. A nice tribute indeed Terry - Lindsay

It’s a funny thing, but even though all kids of my generation loved cowboys and the Wild West, l never watched Rawhide at the time. Maybe I was just a year or two too young. But yes, the boy done good. Cheers, Lindsay. Terry

Awesome tribute, Terry! Eastwood is the quintessence of cool. It's always a delight to see him as an actor in a movie once in a blue moon. I always go see movies he's starring in and I'll see "Cry Macho" as well. Loved the massively underrated "The Mule"

Thanks Edward. Actually wrote that when a Google story said he was nearly one hundred. Double checked to find he is ninety one… nearly a decade out, but he ain’t doing bad in my book. Terry

"Maybe he’ll shoot folk and watch them all die And then tell his nurse he can’t remember why" Hilarious read! Thank you.

Hi Joe, I was gonna end it at that line but decided to squeeze a bit more out it. Glad you enjoyed. Terry

A great actor, and your tribute endearing. Terry, don't be jealous, I mean, you have your attributes, too!

Actually, Milt, his latest movie is reported as a bit of a yawn in sone of the UK newspapers… who reads the papers anyway? ;-) Terry

Any film with him in is worth watching, started of in Rawhide, another lifetime ago. Yikes. Tom

Funnily enough, I’ve got the skeleton of a poem about Biden and Afghanistan based on the Rawhide theme tune. Something like Biden, Biden Biden, keep them forces riding, keep them forces riding… go hide. Drew a blank after that and never finished it. Terry

Good one, Terry, ruminating over the old guy!

Massive respect for putting out new movies at ninety one. Thanks for popping by, Kim. Terry
