Abstract:

America's favorite cowboy has dominated the box office for thirty years - yet closely guarded his personal life and loves. Now, for the first time, the human side of this superstar is revealed in Clint Eastwood: Riding High. Veteran Hollywood insider Douglas Thompson was invited to go one-on-one with the intensely private Eastwood in the actor's adopted hometown of Carmel-by-the-Sea and reports firsthand on Eastwood's days of civic business and their relaxed evening chats at the actor's own Hog's Breath Inn. With straight-from-the-hip honesty, Eastwood reveals what lies behind his status as a billion-dollar cowboy - his beliefs and principles, his faults and failings, his driving personal ambition, and his views on Hollywood.

Thompson also interviewed those who have lived and worked with Eastwood, including his former wife, Maggie, longtime lover Sondra Locke, costar Donna Mills, and director Don Siegel, Eastwood's mentor and colleague. Their insightful perspectives reveal the complex nature of the man: ruthless yet tender, driven yet down-to-earth, affable yet aloof. Close friends share their recollections, including a hilarious story from Burt Reynolds (fired from Universal the same day as Eastwood), shrewd character observations from Marsha Mason, and matchmaking attempts by Frank Sinatra. Clint Eastwood: Riding High tells it all - his loves and hates, his heartaches, his passions and desires.
