Clinton "Clint" Eastwood, Jr. (born May 31, 1930) is an American actor, filmmaker, musician and politician. He rose to international fame with his role as the Man with No Name in Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy
of spaghetti Westerns during the 1960s, and as Harry Callahan in the five Dirty Harry films throughout the 1970s and 1980s. These roles, among others, have made him an enduring cultural icon of masculinity.

For his work in the films Unforgiven (1992) and Million Dollar Baby (2004), Eastwood won Academy Awards for Best Director and Producer of the Best Picture, as well as receiving nominations for Best Actor.
His greatest commercial successes have been Every Which Way But Loose (1978) and its sequel, Any Which Way You Can (1980).
Other popular films include Hang 'Em High (1968), Play Misty for Me (1971), Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974), The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976), Escape from Alcatraz (1979), Firefox (1982),
Tightrope (1984), Pale Rider (1985), Heartbreak Ridge (1986), In the Line of Fire (1993), The Bridges of Madison County (1995), and Gran Torino (2008).

In addition to directing many of his own star vehicles, Eastwood has also directed films in which he did not appear, such as Mystic River (2003) and Letters from Iwo Jima (2006), for which he received
Academy Award nominations, and Changeling (2008). He received considerable critical praise in France for several films including some which were not well received in the United States.
He has been awarded two of France's highest honors: in 1994 he became a recipient of the Commandeur of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and in 2007 he was awarded the Legion d' Honneur medal.
In 2000, he was awarded the Italian Venice Film Festival Golden Lion for lifetime achievement.

Alfred Hitchcock by MaxHitman
Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock - from my famous film directors series.
The original image is very big, but this is a nice size to post here.
-
Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock (13 August 1899 – 29 April 1980) was an English film director and producer.Often nicknamed "The Master of Suspense",
he pioneered many techniques in the suspense and psychological thriller genres. After a successful career in British cinema in both silent films and
in early talkies, renowned as England's best director, Hitchcock moved to Hollywood in 1939 and became a US citizen in 1955.

Over a career spanning more than half a century, Hitchcock fashioned for himself a distinctive and recognisable directorial style.
 He pioneered the use of a camera made to move in a way that mimics a person's gaze, forcing viewers to engage in a form of voyeurism. He framed shots
to maximise anxiety, fear, or empathy, and used innovative film editing.
His stories often feature fugitives on the run from the law alongside "icy blonde" female characters. Many of Hitchcock's films have twist endings and
 thrilling plots featuring depictions of violence, murder, and crime. Many of the mysteries, however, are used as decoys or "MacGuffins" that serve
the film's themes and the psychological examinations of the characters.
Hitchcock's films also borrow many themes from psychoanalysis and feature strong sexual overtones. Through his cameo appearances in his own films,
interviews, film trailers, and the television program Alfred Hitchcock Presents, he became a world cultural icon.

Hitchcock directed more than fifty feature films in a career spanning 60 years Often regarded as the greatest British filmmaker, he came first in a 2007
poll of film critics, which said: "Unquestionably the greatest filmmaker to emerge from these islands (England), Hitchcock did more than any director to
shape modern cinema, which would be utterly different without him. His flair was for narrative, cruelly withholding crucial information (from his
characters and from us) and engaging the emotions of the audience like no one else."
Many film magazines have described him as the most influential filmmaker of all time, and he is widely regarded as one of cinema's most significant artists.

QuentinTarantino by MaxHitman
QuentinTarantino

Quentin Tarantino - from my famous film directors series.
The original image is very big, but this is a nice size to post here.
-
Quentin Jerome Tarantino (born March 27, 1963) is an American film director, screenwriter, cinematographer, producer, and actor. His films are characterized by non-linear storylines,
satirical subject matter, and an aestheticization of violence, as well as features of neo-noir films and spaghetti Westerns.

Tarantino grew up an obsessed film fan and worked in a video rental store while training to act. His knowledge of films is amazing.
His career began in the late 1980s, when he wrote and directed My Best Friend's Birthday, the screenplay of which formed the basis for True Romance. In the early 1990s, he began his
career as an independent filmmaker with the release of Reservoir Dogs in 1992; regarded as a classic and cult hit, it was called the "Greatest Independent Film of All Time" by Empire.
Its popularity was boosted by the release in 1994 of his second film, Pulp Fiction, a neo-noir crime film that became a major critical and commercial success and judged the greatest film
of the past 25 years (1983-2008) by Entertainment Weekly.
 Paying homage to the blaxploitation films of the 1970s, Tarantino released Jackie Brown in 1997, an adaptation of the novel Rum Punch.

Kill Bill, a highly stylized "revenge flick" in the cinematic traditions of Japanese martial arts, spaghetti westerns and Italian horror, followed six years later, and was released as two films:
Vol. 1 in 2003, and Vol. 2 in 2004. Tarantino directed Death Proof (2007) as part of a double feature with friend Robert Rodriguez, under the collective title Grindhouse.
His long-postponed Inglourious Basterds, which tells the fictional alternate history story of two plots to assassinate Nazi Germany's political leadership, was released in 2009 to positive reviews.
His most recent and highest-grossing work is 2012's critically acclaimed Django Unchained, a western film set in the antebellum era of the Deep South. It became the highest-grossing film
of his career so far, making over $425 million at the box office.
Tarantino's films have garnered both critical and commercial success. He has received many industry awards, including two Academy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, two BAFTA Awards and
the Palme d'Or, and has been nominated for an Emmy and a Grammy.
He was named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time magazine, and many filmmakers and historians have called him "the single most influential director of his generation".

Federico Fellini by MaxHitman
Federico Fellini

Federico Fellini - from my famous film directors series.
The original image is very big, but this is a nice size to post here.
-
Federico Fellini (Italian- January 20, 1920 – October 31, 1993) was an Italian film director and scriptwriter. Known for his distinct style that blends fantasy and baroque images with earthiness,
he is considered one of the greatest and most influential filmmakers of the 20th century.
In a career spanning almost 50 years, Fellini won five Academy Awards including the most Oscars in history for Best Foreign Language Film.

Life and dreams were raw material for his films. His native Rimini and characters like Saraghina (the devil herself said the priests who ran his school) - and the Gambettola farmhouse of his
paternal grandmother would be remembered in several films.
He enrolled in the University of Rome. Intrigued by the image of reporters in American films, he tried out the real life role of journalist and caught the attention of several editors with his
caricatures and cartoons and then started submitting articles.
The young Fellini loved vaudeville and was befriended in 1940 by leading comedians.
Many of his films have a unique Fellini trademark, which include bizarre, abstract plots peppered with risque humor, which also includes dream like imagery and nostalgia.
A very unique visionary for his time and his films will always be one of a kind, often imitated, but never duplicated.
-
His most notable films are . . .
1. 8 ½ (1963)
2. La Dolce Vita (1960)
3. La Strada (1954)
4. Nights of Cabiria (1957)

6. I Vitelloni (1953)
7. Juliet of the Spirits (1965)
8. Fellini Satyricon (1969)
9. Fellini's Casanova (1976)
