Todd McCarthy

Several very talented people took time out of their busy schedules to provide Everything Is an Afterthought and Conversations with Clint with some lovely advance praise. We were able to use all of the blurbs--with the exception of one, which unfortunately arrived just a tad too late.

My apologies to Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter, who had this to say about Conversations with Clint:

"Paul Nelson's resurrected 'lost' interviews represent deep-dish Clint. Nelson recognized the magnitude of the actor-director's talents earlier than most--Eastwood had only made it up to Sudden Impact in 1983 by the time of the final interview--and they clearly had an easy rapport. The result sees the star opening up on his early struggles, how he learned from observing on Rawhide, his close collaborations with Sergio Leone and Don Siegel, money, politics, celebrity, and why he prefers early Bergman and Kurosawa to their later films. Clint has given many interviews, but this is one of his best, definitely of great interest to anyone who takes his work seriously."

Thanks, Todd.
