As an actor, he seduced us with his tough-guy charm in A Fistful of Dollars and Dirty Harry. As a director and a producer, he amazed us with his artistic insight and technical savvy in Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby, and Changeling. Clint Eastwood represents the finest cinematic achievements of the last decades, and he remains one of film's greatest living legends.

In American Rebel, Marc Eliot examines the ever-exciting, often tumultuous arc of Eastwood's life and career, from his days as a disaffected college dropout, to his rise to fame as the archetypal loner, to his acceptance into the pantheon of the Academy as a multiple Oscar Award winner. But this unauthorized biography is as much about Eastwood's personal life as his public work, and unlike past biographers, Eliot explores Eastwood's complex relationship between his life and his art with an unflinching look at his failures and his successes.

The most complete and up-to-date Eastwood biography yet, American Rebel is a must-have for Eastwood fans and anyone who loves movies.

    The author is obviously a wannabe movie critic in the way he present's Eastwood's life and career. He also is astute at presenting all the historical critic quotations for every movie Clint made and he knows his stats on boxoffice takes. But that is all he presents, in a boring list-like way, with the exception of innuendo and juicy items about Clint's lovelife and "reputation" as a womanizer. I ignored the latter and focused on the huge portfolio of Mr. Eastwood's artistic portfolio. It definitely made me want to develop a library of his films and watch some for the first time, some for the third time. So, if you are a movie animal, you will like this audiobook.
