Whats Your Favourite Clint Eastwood Movie???

I narrow my choice down to three, in this order:

1. Where Eagles Dare
2. Dirty Harry
3. The Eiger Sanction

Be interested to see what others think.

I'll be somewhat surprised if anyone else lists The Beguiled.

I would put that up there too. Great film.

I would rank MILLION DOLLAR BABY, UNFORGIVEN, DIRTY HARRY, PLAY MISTY FOR ME, and IN THE LINE OF FIRE up there as well.

CITY HEAT is his worst. Nobody can argue that, just try.

As actor, easily "Good, Bad, Ugly"

As director, "High Plains Drifter" (I wouldn't say its his best, but its my favorite)

It would be a toss up for me between the Man with no Name trilogy, Pale Rider, and In the Line of Fire.

While I liked the Dirty Harry movies I never thought they were great outside of the few lines the series is famous for.

I've heard this before, but I've never seen that movie, so I can't comment. I just love how much ass he kicks in this movie, "nothing like a good piece of hickory." Also,
Spoiler:
I thought Shane died at the end of the movie; that definitely didn't happen in Pale Rider

I think that A Perfect World is an excellent, excellent movie.

In the Line of Fire and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly are some of my favorites as well. His best directed movie would have to be Mystic River.

Nope. WAGON was gorgeously shot. HEAT has Irene Cara.

Try again.

That he starred in - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
That he directed - The Beguiled

The Eiger Sanction, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Joe Kidd and Two Mules for Sister Sara are highly underrated.

And City Heat is far from his worst.
