Today is Clint Eastwood's birthday. He was born in 1930. That would make him a bit more than three years older than my Mom. ( I never knew) Growing up, My friend Luann Shepherd and I would beg our parents to let us watch his movies. The first movie I asked Mom to take me two was "The Beguiled" I didn't know what it was about.. Mom loved it. Then "Courger's Bluff" came on. I thought for sure Mom would tell me no more Eastwood Movies until I was older. But she quickly reaized it wasn't the violence that drew me to the movies, it was the Actor.
I loved him in "Paint Your Wagon". And to this day, I sing the songs from that movie.
