|TV and Movie Trivia Tribute|
|Clint is right up there on my list of favorite actors. I don't remember watching the "Rawhide" TV show as a kid, but have caught up with Clint in the westerns. "Hang 'Em High" is a pretty good film and "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" is a classic. I guess what really made me a fan was the Dirty Harry flicks. He did things his own way.|
