Clint Eastwood 20 Film Collection Blu-ray Review
And Many More to Go
Reviewed by Michael Reuben, June 4, 2013
In the documentary The Eastwood Factor, the legendary director, actor and producer describes the day when he decided to hang his hat at Warner Bros., where his Malpaso Productions has since been headquartered for over three decades. The arrangement has been mutually beneficial. Warner has provided Eastwood with a stable base for his restless cinematic exploration, while Eastwood has provided Warner with a steady supply of films that usually turn a profit and, with increasing frequency over the years, burnish its artistic respectability (not to mention its trophy case). Even the flops haven't been costly, due to Eastwood's legendary thrift. In the usual manner of home video divisions, Warner can't resist the allure of double dipping, and with an oeuvre as vast as Eastwood's, the possibilities are almost endless. On Blu-ray alone, we've had The Clint Eastwood Collection , Essential Eastwood: Director's Collection and the five-film Dirty Harry: The Ultimate Collection (replaced two years later by the more simply named Dirty Harry Collection). Now, just in time for Father's Day, Warner has given us the Clint Eastwood 20 Film Collection, which partially duplicates, but does not supercede, the preceding three. All of the films in Eastwood 20 have been previously released on Blu-ray, but not every Eastwood Blu-ray to date is included. Let's start by listing titles from the existing collections that have been omitted. They are: Absolute Power, Kelly's Heroes, The Rookie, Where Eagles Dare, The Enforcer and The Dead Pool. But what's here is quite impressive for the price, especially for someone who is just starting their Blu-ray collection. The set also includes two excellent documentaries (unfortunately, only on DVD), one of which is brand new, and a mini-book of photos excerpted from a recently published overview of Eastwood's career.
Since every title in the Eastwood 20 set has already been reviewed at Blu-ray.com, and none of the discs are remasters, they are not being reviewed anew. The titles are listed below in the order in which they appear in the collection, with links to their respective reviews:

Clint Eastwood 20 Film Collection Blu-ray, Overall Score and Recommendation
Give Eastwood another year or two of filmmaking, and Warner a little more time with its Blu-ray catalog, and before you know it we should be looking at an Eastwood 20, Volume 2. The omitted titles listed above include some major works that are long overdue on Blu, such as Bird, Tight Rope and The Bridges of Madison County. This latest collection probably contains too much duplication to be of great value for the typical Blu-ray afficionado, who will already have many of these titles on the shelf. Then again, consider giving your duplicates to that friend or family member who's just starting to build their hi-def library. Go ahead, make their . . . you get the idea.
