Turner Classic Movies to Honor Clint Eastwood

clint_eastwood_dirty_harry_gunThere's a lot of things you can call Clint Eastwood. Actor, movie star, director, musician, Oscar-winner ... and on May 31, octogenarian. That's right, the seemingly ageless action star is turning 80 years old. Having seen him in last year's 'Gran Torino,' still growling like Harry Callahan on a good day, it's hard to believe that he's not as formidable a presence on screen as he's ever been. Calling Clint Eastwood a legend, frankly, sounds like an understatement.

To honor the prolific career of Clint Eastwood,Turner Classic Movies will devote the day to him. On May 31, the network will give us 24 hours of Eastwood, including 'The Eastwood Factor,' a documentary that has previously only been available as part of the boxed set 'Clint Eastwood: 35 Films.'

Clint EastwoodGo ahead. Make his (birth) day.

Incredible though it may seem, Clint Eastwood will be 80 (!) on May 31.

To celebrate, Turner Classic Movies will pay tribute to the iconic actor/director with a 24-hour marathon of his movies.

Beginning at 6AM with 1956's 'The First Traveling Salesleady,' the cable network will run many fan favorites, including 'Dirty Harry,' 'Magnum Force' and 'Hang 'Em High.' In addition, the network will air 'The Eastwood Factor,' a documentary narrated by his 'Invictus' star, Morgan Freeman.

Review: Dexter - Dirty Harry

- "If anyone has ever deserved to be on your table, it's this son of a bitch." - Harry to Dexter

Shows like Dexter are like Heinz Ketchup, good things come to those who wait.

The last few episodes, well, weren't the best of the season, maybe even of the series. They interspersed bits and pieces of the Trinity Killer's true identity with a bunch of dry and pointless plots surrounding the rest of the characters from Batista and Laguerta's closed door relationship to Quinn's "back door" policy with his nosy reporter girlfriend (not that kind sickos).

But it's finally starting to pay off with this week's episode. Some of those dull plotlines have brought together what appear to be some much needed closure and we finally learn another piece of the Trinity Killer's picture and it's starting to look like a Normal Rockwell as opposed to a blood-spattered Jackson Pollock.

As the seventh season commences, the cases continue. Tonight it's a flashback to 1966 and the events on a ship known for suicides, but the real crux of the show was more current. What's going on with Lily Rush since her near-death experience last year? When the case against Kitchener seems to be going soft, her reaction makes me wonder if our Lily is contemplating going Dirty Harry (Harriet?) on us.

The Closer: Strike Three

McDonnell_Sedgwick_The_Closer(S05E07) She's back. Clearly, the producers of The Closer decided that Brenda needed an antagonist. Mary McDonnell has fit the bill. So far I think they've made her character a bit one-note, but I'm willing to see how she evolves over time. Or maybe it's just that I like Mary McDonnell.

Anyway, like internal affairs officers in most cop dramas, McDonnell's character, Captain Sharon Raydor of Force Investigation Division, seems to be anti-cop/pro-victim. Harry Callahan would hate her. She was better in this than her previous episode, but not by much.

Movies on TV: Week of Sept. 21-27

Audrey Hepburn in 'Funny Face''Funny Face'
Sun., 6PM ET on TCM


Audrey Hepburn is captivating as an ugly duckling bookworm who transforms into a beautiful supermodel swan.

The actress sings her own numbers in this classic musical, and while she's no opera star, her small voice is a perfect fit for her character.

Hepburn holds her own with song-and-dance master Fred Astaire on a hit list of Gershwin tunes, and she completely steals the spotlight whenever she dons one of Edith Head's unforgettable gowns.

Dan Marino will NOT be Dancing with the Stars

D MarinoI knew it! In fact, in the comments to Bob's post about who was rumored to be booked for the new season of Dancing with the Stars, I wrote the following: "I love Dan Marino. He's always been one of my all time favorites, but he was known for his arm and quick release, not his footwork!! If Danny is one of the contestants, only his blue eyes will keep him on past round one. I think In Touch is out of touch about this name!"

Well, today Dan Marino's spokesman officially denied the rumor. While Dan was watching the Miami Dolphins scrimmage, his rep told the press that for every year since the show began, Dancing with the Stars has invited Dan Marino to find the dancer in his soul, and every year he's turned them down. Good for Dan.
