If Clint gets another Academy Award leaving Scorsese still Oscarless... I'll scream! Scorsese should have three and Eastwood... (well he did deserve the one for Unforgiven, I suppose...)

God bless, Clint Eastwood! The guy's a goddamn inspiration .. two epic movies shot virtually back to back - you'd think he was 35 not 76. I liked Flags of Our Fathers a lot and I can't wait to see Letters from Iwo Jima. Oh, AND he composed the music for both pictures! Ridiculous.

I strongly suspect that, decades from now, film historians will be singing the praises of Clint Eastwood's works. Indeed, I suspect that even movies such as White Hunter, Black Heart and True Crime will benefit from revisionist re-appraisals.

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
