Default Warner to release 39 Clint Eastwood BD plus new documentary Eastwood Directs in 2013

The following info comes from the Warner HTF Chat with regards to the 90th anniversary next year.

http://www.hometheaterforum.com/t/32...th-anniversary

Quote:
Now, you saw the documentary had a segment on Clint Eastwood, and you know, he's been here since '71 when he made Dirty Harry. We really felt like you couldn't have a 90th anniversary and program initiative without something for Clint. So some of you may be aware, and I hope that you're aware of the fact that we created a box set 35 films, 35 years a couple of years ago. We actually started working on it in '08; we introduced it in '10. Inside of that box set was a documentary called "The Eastwood Factor," which we worked with Clint on. It was a very special documentary, if you haven't seen it, I want to make sure you do see it, so let us know if you don't have a copy then I'll get you a copy.


It was very special, I think for me because we were able to expose the personal side of Clint, which most people have not seen. And so what we've chronicled is his history at Warner Brothers in the 35 films over the 35 years, it showed the personal side of him. So when we decided on doing something for the 90th, I had this idea of a 40-film box set. Now, in this box set, there's 38 features, including Trouble with the Curve because this is going to be coming out before the end of May '13, okay. The 39 films, the Eastwood Factor is the documentary I mentioned earlier. And the 40th is a new documentary called Eastwood Directs: The Untold Story.


Now, the idea behind that one was there have been lot of documentaries done on Clint and with Clint's participation. And I wanted to have a storyline that was different. So the idea was let's go to the actors who worked with Clint on his films, let's go to the producing partners who worked with Clint, and let's ask them why is it different when Clint is directing? What is it about Clint that makes him unusual and so successful? And I have to admit I had phenomenal expectations after the Eastwood Factor about this new documentary. But I'd also admit at the same time that you never know what you're going to get out of somebody in an interview. And we interviewed some pretty famous people which you'll see momentarily, all of these interviews were done over the last six months. But we've just completed, you're going to see about a 10-minute piece, it's a little more than 60 minutes in total. But we've really got some great material, and that would be the 40th film in this box set. The 40 films is the largest box set in the history of the DVD business, dedicated to an actor/director.
Very cool news indeed

Really want "The Eiger Sanction" - pretty sure that falls under his WB work. Don't think I would buy a 40 film collection though - the potential cost makes my head spin.
Lloyd C. Cramden: Flint, How do you find time to read all these books?
Derek Flint: No, no, no, sir, I wrote those.

Eiger Sanction is owned by Universal now. It came out in a set with The Beguiled, Play Misty For Me, and Coogan's Bluff a few years ago.

Thanks all for the info - for some reason I thought I remembered that old 70's WB logo before watching it last time. Must be one of those experiences where you believe yourself into remembering something.

I take it that set above is DVD? Could not find a listing for a bluray version. While not his best movie I've always liked it - have a great facination with Eiger and the North Face.
