Warner plans Clint Eastwood DVD collection
35-film set includes 'Where Eagles Dare,' 'Gran Torino'Clint Eastwood fans just might feel the hyphenate has made their day when Warner Home Video announces Monday plans for an Eastwood DVD collection of virtually unprecedented scope.
Priced at $179.98, the 19-disc "Clint Eastwood: 35 Films, 35 Years at Warner Bros." is set to hit shelves Feb. 16. The collection contains Eastwood films from 1968's "Where Eagles Dare" through last year's "Gran Torino," plus a feature documentary on the filmmaker by Time magazine critic and film historian Richard Schickel.
"I've known Clint for most of the time he's been at Warner Bros.," Schickel said. "I was fortunate to be able to wander around the Warner lot with him and hear his reminiscences. To be able to show him in the places where he works and lives and feels most comfortable is, I think, a unique opportunity."
The collection includes films in which Eastwood has acted, acted and directed, or helmed. Other materials in the box set include a biographical booklet.
