If you’re a Clint Eastwood enthusiast here’s some good news for you. Warner Brothers has just announced their plans to release the ultimate Clint Eastwood box set, which will make all other DVD combos look lame in comparison. The set is entitled Clint Eastwood: 35 Films, 35 Years at Warner Bros.
The DVD collection spans Eastwood’s entire career with the studio starting with the 1968 film Where Eagles Dare to the recently released Gran Torino. There’s also a feature length documentary on the actor and filmmaker, by Time magazine critic and film historian Richard Schickel. The box set is scheduled for release on February 16, 2010 and has a retail price of $179.98. In this economy that’s definitely a lot of money to spend on a DVD set, but the studio tries to make it worth your while.
For that price you get 35 films, a documentary that features in depth interviews and commentary, photos, and a 24 page sampler booklet from Clint: A Retrospective by Richard Schickel. The one thing that sucks the most about this is the fact that it doesn’t come out until February. How many people have dads or grandfathers who would die to get this collection for Christmas? Thanks a lot Warner Brothers, you’re missing out on a great holiday opportunity.
