Clint Eastwood - The Blu-ray Collection

Posted June 6, 2014 06:32 PM by Webmaster

Universal 100thThe UK branch of Universal Studios will release an eight-disc collection of films starring and directed by Clint Eastwood. The films in the box set are: Coogan's Bluff (1968), Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970), The Beguiled (1971), Play Misty for Me (1971), Joe Kidd (1972), High Plains Drifter (1973), Breezy (1973), and The Eiger Sanction (1975). Street date is August 4th.

Coogan's Bluff

Clint Eastwood is Arizona deputy Walt Coogan, sent to New York city to escort a prisoner home. But the prisoner is not ready to be transferred back to Arizona and so Coogan cuts a few corners. However, this helps the prisoner escape and, after Coogan clashes with the Sherrif McElroy (Lee J. Cobb), he is ordered back to Arizona. But Coogan does not want to give up his pursuit of the prisoner and takes the matter into his own hands.

Two Mules for Sister Sara

Old Mexico, occupied by the French, is a magnet for American mercenaries, looking to make a fast buck in the lawless country. One such gold-digger (Clint Eastwood) shows his fundamentally noble nature by saving a 'nun' (Shirley Maclaine) from being raped. She turns out in fact to be a prostitute, and the odd couple team up, facing continual confrontation with the French forces.

The Beguiled

Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page star in this tense psychological drama of love and betrayal. During the Civil War a wounded Union soldier is sheltered by the headmistress and students of a girls' academy in the South. As his health returns his desire increases, but can he trust these enemy women not to turn him in? He takes his chances but soon realizes that his benefactress can't be trusted...with his love or with his life! His lustful ambition turns quickly against him and the story follows him through a series of nerve-shattering events, including realistic scenes that are among the boldest, most shocking ever witnessed on film. Directed by Don Siegel, with a sultry score by Lalo Schifrin, this bittersweet thriller of hidden passions is set in one of America's romantic eras.

Play Misty for Me

Clint Eastwood made his directorial debut with this contemporary thriller about psychotic obsession. Eastwood also takes the lead in the starring role as Dave Garver, a popular radio disc jockey who repeatedly receives on-air phone requests from a sexy female fan to "play Misty for me". When the woman, Evelyn Draper (Jessica Walter), orchestrates a rendezvous with Dave at his favorite nightspot, the two begin a torrid affair. But when Dave decides to end the relationship, Evelyn's obsession turns to violence. Soon everything and everyone in Dave's life becomes a target for Evelyn's increasingly deadly campaign of terror. Beautifully photographed on location in Eastwood's hometown of Carmel, California, Play Misty for Me continues to be considered one of the great modern-day thrillers.

Joe Kidd

Clint Eastwood plays a drunken tracker coerced by American business tycoon Robert Duvall to go in search of Mexican agitator John Saxon. Scripted by renowned crime writer Elmore Leonard.

High Plains Drifter

Classic Clint Eastwood western. The unwelcome arrival of a stranger (Eastwood) in the town of Lagos causes resentment and fear among the locals. However, when they come under threat from a band of escaped convicts, it is to the stranger that the townsfolk turn for salvation. He agrees to help, and sets about teaching the populace the arts of self defense.

Breezy

Clint Eastwood directs William Holden and Kay Lenz as a mismatched pair who eventually find common ground. Successful businessman Frank Harmon (William Holden), disillusioned after a bitter divorce, thinks he can shut out the pain by isolating himself at his beach house. But when free-spirited Breezy (Kay Lenz) appears on his doorstep, Frank is unable to turn her away.

The Eiger Sanction

College lecturer Jonathan Hemlock (Clint Eastwood) tops up his university paypacket by carrying out the occasional assassination. His latest assignment involves joining a climbing expedition up the Eiger, identifying the Russian killer amongst the group, and then neutralising his threat. Directed by Eastwood himself and co-starring George Kennedy and Vonetta McGee.

Looks good, but why the box is so large for merely 8 discs. I thought it would contain more of his films looking at the size.

The box is probably just the size of 8 standard UK blu-ray cases. The photo makes it look larger than it actually is i think.

A great collection, but the announcement is inaccurate. Eastwood directed only four of these films.

I'll definitely be getting this set.

Really want this but ~$75 for 5 films is a bit much. Not sure I could sell the other 3 I already have. Then again, I don't own DVDs for those 5. Tough decision. Hopefully it'll drop to 30-35 pounds.

Play Misty For Me, is the only one I really want. $75 is to steep for only five films. Maybe a big price drop on Black Friday? Or even better, a U.S. release of "Play Misty For Me," on Blu-ray.
