Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood has established himself as a Hollywood icon. From Westerns in the 1960s to no-nonsense, rebel cop Dirty Harry in the 1970s to a focus on directing since the 1980s, Eastwood has created a body of work that has garnered respect, box office success, and numerous awards. But before that, Eastwood earned his daily bread digging swimming pools for the rich and famous of Beverly Hills, while at night he'd audition for bit parts. He'd already put in hard time working as a lumberjack, steel mill worker, aircraft factory worker, and gas station attendant. Now, he's the one lounging around the pool.
