Up there with Jack Nicholson as the coolest dude in Hollywood. 

 

 

Kellys Heroes for me for purely sentimental reasons but I suspect Unforgiven or Dirty Harry will win here. Every Which But Loose is also a personal favourite.

Unforgiven is probably his best work, in front of the camera at least.

 

I have a soft spot for Escape From Alcatraz though so I voted for that. The story, particularly the part we don’t know for sure, fascinated me as a kid.

I've gone for Josey Wales, I thought Westerns were boring until I watched that.

 

Bird is a very underrated film about Charlie Parker.

 

As a Director, I would pick Mystic River, which is a masterpiece.

 

Just as an aside, I prefer Magnum Force to Dirty Harry.

Had to think long and hard about this as there are so many brilliant films. Finally went with The Outlaw Josey Wales just ahead of High Plains Drifter.

For a Few Dollars More - I prefer this to the other spaghetti westerns. Having looked through his films now, am I right in remembering that Thunderbolt and Lightfoot was decent?

Aye, Thunderbolt & Lightfoot is brilliant.

Why favourite film in the list is Where Eagles Dare, but he played second fiddle in that to Burton who was just fantastic. And yeah Kelly's Heroes was pretty special, but Dirty Harry wins it for me.

High Plains Drifter.

Same here, if only for the bit where Mordecai asks him what happens next, after the killing.

"You live with it."

Voted for Unforgiven, of the titles not on the list, Honkytonk Man is unbelievably underrated and it never gets mentioned, but in my opinion, it should serve as test of being a true Eastwood fan or a cognoscenti.

Great film that. Ironically the great Marty Robbins who had a few scenes in the film was ill himself at the time and passed away around the time the film was released

Loads of great films, but I always associate "favourite" with one I can watch any time, no matter what mood I'm in.

 

That said, it's between Dirty Harry and Fistful of Dollars for me. Went for Callahan as '70s San Francisco was such a great backdrop to the action, and not enough heroes dress like geography teachers.
