About This Quiz

Clint Eastwood is one of the most iconic movie stars of all time. Thanks mostly to his work with Sergio Leone, he bridged the gap from the Westerns of the old, pre-1960s era into the twenty first century. Some of his characters were so culturally significant that they were given sequel after sequel, enshrining them in the American mythology.

Clint Eastwood's characters were successful in part due to their unforgettable one liners. While many writers are responsible for the sentences we call "Clint Eastwood lines," perhaps the bulk of them are due to the contributions of John Milius, who helped pen a draft of "Dirty Harry" when Frank Sinatra was planning to star in the role, was often called from the set of "Dirty Harry"by director Don Siegel to punch up lackluster dialog at the last minute, providing lines like "Do you feel lucky, punk?"

Driven to direct, Eastwood experimented with acting in other genres, playing characters who took advantage of our expectations of what an Eastwood character should be, sometimes subverting those expectations, and sometimes going in another direction altogether. After making "The Bridges of Madison County" with Meryl Streep, Eastwood was quoted as saying "This romantic stuff is really tough. I can't wait to get back to shooting and killing."
