Clint Eastwood. A star in the film industry. Blessed on the 31st of May in 1930, he commenced directing in 1971 and producing in 1982. Famous for his functions in the Dollars Trilogy, the Dirty Harry movies, Unforgiven and Mil Dollar Baby, his name is synonymous with masculinity. He has 7 children from 5 different women where only 2 of whom, each were at one point his better half. In December 2008, Gran Torino was released and written by Warner Brothers. The movie tells a story of Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood), a caucasian veteran of the Korean War. Walt is the spitting image of the common racist American war veteran who rests outside his home with a 12 gauge shotgun firmly directed at immigrants with a southern drawl. Clint Eastwood's portrayal of Walt holds true to this general image albeit as the storyplot progresses, his frame of mind towards his neighbours softens.
