American Rebel Book Summary


In American Rebel, bestselling author and acclaimed film historian Marc Eliot examines the ever-exciting, often-tumultuous arc of Clint Eastwood's life and career.

As a Hollywood icon, Clint Eastwood--one of film's greatest living legends--represents some of the finest cinematic achievements in the history of American cinema. Eliot writes with unflinching candor about Eastwood's highs and lows, his artistic successes and failures, and the fascinating, complex relationship between his life and his craft. Eliot's prodigious research reveals how a college dropout and unambitious playboy rose to fame as Hollywood's "sexy rebel," eventually and against all odds becoming a star in the Academy pantheon as a multiple Oscar winner. Spanning decades, American Rebel covers the best of Eastwood's oeuvre, films that have fast become American classics: Fistful of Dollars, Dirty Harry, Unforgiven, Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, and Gran Torino.

Filled with remarkable insights into Eastwood's personal life and public work, American Rebel is highly entertaining and the most complete biography of one of Hollywood's truly respected and beloved stars–-an actor who, despite being the Man with No Name, has left his indelible mark on the world of motion pictures.

American Rebel - Marc Eliot Reviews

  • The Good, the bad, and the ugly

    By GalacticaLover

    He's no saint. He never said he was. He did things his way. That is the shocking part of the story. How did he know or think he could succeed and pull it all off? He had no inside track, no friends in high places, and yet he decided he was going to be a star and he was. That was impressive enough. And then he proved he deserved it. That is the shocking part. He can't be happy about this version of his life, but he'd still be proud if he read it. If you idolize Clint, don't read it. If you want to understand the guy, you'll love it.
  • Clint Eastwood, warts and all

    If you are a fan of Clint Eastwood then this book is a great read. It's not straight hero worship, although there are components of that. The author presents the good, the bad and the ugly of Clint's past in an honest, easy to read way. Enjoy
