The Cinema of Clint Eastwood

This chapter discusses the film Coogan's Bluff (1968) where Clint Eastwood met Hollywood director Don Siegel. Coogan's Bluff is a modern-day western about Walt Coogan, a deputy sheriff from rural Arizona who was dispatched to New York to oversee the extradition of an accused murderer who had been apprehended there, but managed to escape before Coogan could get him onto a westbound plane. The film was a critical and commercial success, and it established Eastwood's relationships with production personnel who became recurring figures in his career. Over the next three years, he went on to star in films such as Where Eagles Dare (1968), Paint Your Wagon (1969), Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970), Kelly's Heroes (1970), and The Beguiled (1971).
