Get ready for 'Mrs. Eastwood & Company' with 12 classic Clint Eastwood movies

clint-eastwood-a-fistful-of-dollars.jpgOn Sunday (May 26), the citizens of E! -- The Kardashians, Ice T and Coco, Chelsea Handler -- get some Oscar-level company with the premiere of "Mrs. Eastwood & Company."

While Clint Eastwood's second wife of 16 years, Dina, is at the center of the new reality offering (along with a couple of teenagers and about 30 family pets), Clint will appear in two episodes.

And any excuse to have a Clint Eastwood movie marathon is a good excuse ...

"A Fistful of Dollars" (1964): During a hiatus from his television Western "Rawhide," Eastwood went to Spain to work with director Sergio Leone on what would be the first Man With No Name saga. The rest, as they say, is history.

"Hang 'Em High" (1968): Proving he also could make an effective screen Western in the American style, Eastwood played a wrongful hanging victim saved, deputized ... and filled with vengeance.

"Where Eagles Dare" (1968): In one of his last films not under his creative control, Eastwood teamed with Richard Burton in novelist Alistair MacLean's exciting World War II adventure.

"The Beguiled" (1971): A banner year for Eastwood started with this memorably eerie drama of a wounded Civil War soldier recuperating at an all-girl school.

"Dirty Harry" (1971): Another iconic Eastwood role began with director Don Siegel's original tale of the maverick San Francisco police detective.

"The Outlaw Josey Wales" (1976): Back in the Civil War milieu, director and star excelled as a peaceable man driven to violence by his family's massacre.

"Unforgiven" (1992): The Oscars finally recognized Eastwood for his Western saga of an ex-gunman opposing a corrupt lawman ( Gene Hackman).

"In the Line of Fire" (1993): Eastwood was completely convincing as a Secret Service veteran determined to protect the president from a wily assassin ( John Malkovich).

"The Bridges of Madison County" (1995): As director and co-star, Eastwood was inspired as Meryl Streep's suitor in the middle-aged romance based on Robert James Waller's best seller.

"Million Dollar Baby" (2004): Again in Oscar-caliber form, star and director Eastwood did much to bring Hilary Swank her second Academy Award in this boxing drama.

"Gran Torino" (2008): In his last acting role to date, Eastwood (again the director here, too) was ideal as a crusty war veteran forced by a neighbor's plight to face his prejudices.
