See Clint Eastwood and the Rawhide set like never before in these stunning color behind-the-scenes photos
A photographer caught the iconic cowboy actor doing a handstand between takes.
Before Rawhide, Clint Eastwood was just another young actor trying to make it in showbusiness. He started with blink-and-you’ll-miss-it parts in Fifties monster movies like Revenge of the Creature and Tarantula before getting small roles in shows like Death Valley Days and Maverick.
Even his break as Rowdy Yates wasn’t a guarantee of stardom. After all, the show’s main star was Eric Fleming as trail boss Gil Favor. But Eastwood soon won audiences over with his tenacity and charm. He even showed off his singing voice on the show and toured the country with costar Paul Brinegar in between seasons.
Of course, saying yes to parts in spaghetti Westerns A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly during breaks in Rawhide’s schedule might have something to do with Eastwood’s now iconic status.

Rawhide (TV Series 1959–1965) -
"Dolu Dizgin" ismi ile (HBB) kanalında yayınlandı.
Filmin orjinali siyah beyaz. Bu resimler sonradan renklendirildi. Arkaplanda sağ tarafta beyaz kıyafetli olan filmin yönetmeni "Charles Marquis Warren". "Fox Studio"firması tarafından kayıt edildi.. Firma 1935 Yılında kuruldu. Williamd Fox ve diğer kurucu üyeler tarafından daha sonra Walt Disney ile ortaklıkları oldu.
I am glad Clint didn't listen to him. Imagine if he would have been discouraged and quit the business right there?! I wonder how many other talented actors/directors maybe quit because they were told something similar.
The lesson is, never listen to the critics.
2008- Gran Torino
1986- Heartbreak Ridge
Among many others.
