A dreamy looking Clint Eastwood circa 1965
The new issue of Cinema Retro arrived in my mailbox recently and as always, it’s a must-read magazine if you enjoy ’60s and ’70s era cinema as much as I do! The current issue (Vol. 3: Issue #9) features a terrific and informative cover story about Clint Eastwood and his role in Don Siegel’s film Dirty Harry, which was written by Darren Allison who runs the impressive Clint Eastwood Archive Blog. Darren Allison is an authority on Clint Eastwood and his collection of Eastwood related memorabilia is incredibly impressive. If you’re a Clint Eastwood fan like myself, his blog is well worth a look.
The new issue of Cinema Retro also includes a wonderful article on the first Man from U.N.C.L.E. feature-length film, To Trap a Spy and the third installment of their ongoing interview with one of the stars of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., David McCallum. With Time Life’s recent announcement that they’ll be releasing the entire Man from U.N.C.L.E. television series on DVD in November, there’s no better time to make yourself more acquainted with this wonderful show and the talented and handsome actors who starred in it.
You’ll also find a great feature about Tobe Hopper’s adaptation of Stephen King’s creepy vampire novel Salem’s Lot, along with a brief overview of the terrific Hammer film Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter and an interview with monster maker Ray Harryhausen, which all make for some great October reading.
Last, but certainly not least, the new issue contains the second half of their insightful interview with the lovely actress and Bond girl Luciana Paluzzi and a nice profile on the In Like Flint beautiful femme fatal Jean Hale written by Tom Lisanti of Sixties Cinema, who has a new book out that I hope to review here soon.
There’s a lot more to be found inside the pages of the latest issue of Cinema Retro so do yourself a favor and pick up a copy, or better yet subscribe to the magazine. For information on how to order the magazine please visit the official Cinema Retro website.
