Clint EastwoodDirects

High Plains Drifter

22 Aug, 1973

In this western, Eastwood directs and plays “The Stranger,” a man who agrees to help townspeople who are being terrorized by out-of-control brothers. Starring Verna Bloom and Marianna Hill. Who The Stranger is to him:

To me he was the brother.  But I presented him…  The way the whole town was, no children, kind of strange:  it’s a weird situation.  As far as me justifying the role, he was the brother.  But as far as the audience is concerned, if they want to draw him as something a little more than that, that’s fine.
