    “Best”? Why don’t you just ask me which one of my children I love the most? :p


    That said, best: High Plains Drifter (but this was almost a random guess).


    Worst: Bridges of Madison County. *gag*

    Wow, where would you start. I really like his western & cop movies and I even enjoyed Absolute Power, Blood Work & Trouble with the curve.

    Though I hated the ending, Grand Torino is good.

    Never had an interest to watch Bridges of Madison County so can't judge it but, guessing I would have hated it.

    So, as the others have said, it's hard to pick.

    Very hard to choose indeed.

    I rank Outlaw Josey Wales and Dirty Harry high on the list.

    I almost want to say I didn't care for that one featuring Clyde (the orangatang), but I really don't recall if I ever saw the whole movie or not.

    All things considered (age/climate/environment), I thought he was okay doing that monologue though, IMO, I'd rather entertainers not involve themselves in promoting politics unless they're the individual running for that particular office.

    Clint has a wide range, he sings (though not that good at it IMO, directs writes etc... Good all around talent.

    Forgot about one of the weirdest ones.

    Clint plus Lee Marvin and a lot other very rough looking characters all singing in a full blown musical set in the old west.

    Best: Unforgiven. Apparently he had to wait until he was of a certain age to make it.

    Not Worst: Bridges of Madison County. Not his best effort, but Meryl Streep, in the truck seeing him in the rain, her indecision, best acting in the movie.

    Worst: No idea, haven't seen them all.

    Play Misty For Me was a wierd one though.

    I dont have a worst because I havent seen his bad movies like Bridges.

    Best: "Where Eagles Dare" great WW2 movie and has the highest body count by Clint as well. The Gondola scene is pretty freakin sweet!

    Its one of those if done right with todays technology could be the best remake ever.

    Unforgiven is so rich on so many levels. As far as I'm concerned it's absolutely his best, because it's also a personal statement from him (a lot of his movies are, but this one much more focused), trying to reconcile his Man With No Name character, who he was, all the bad he did in his lifetime. To me, it's fascinating to view it from that angle because it's like hearing Clint apologize for making such an iconic character so enormous while never accounting for his dark, evil side.
