Clint Eastwood Portrait Sketch
Drawing - Pencil On Paper
Perhaps the icon of macho movie stars, Clint Eastwood has become a standard in international cinema. Born in San Francisco, he is the son of Clinton Eastwood Sr. and Ruth Wood (née Runner). The family frequently moved around Northern California when Clint was growing up before settling in Oregon.
Hang 'Em High is a 1968 American Western film directed by Ted Post and produced and co-written by Leonard Freeman. It stars Clint Eastwood as Jed Cooper, an innocent man who survives a lynching, Inger Stevens as a widow who helps him, Ed Begley as the leader of the gang that lynched him, and Pat Hingle as the judge who hires Jed as a US Marshal.
Hang 'Em High was the first production of The Malpaso Company, Clint Eastwood's own production company. In the film, actor Pat Hingle portrays a fictional judge who mirrors the true life Judge Isaac Parker, who was labeled "The Hanging Judge" due to the large number of men he had executed during his service as District Judge. The film also depicts the dangers of serving as a US Marshal or Deputy US Marshal during that period, as large numbers of Marshals were killed while serving under Parker. In the film, the fictional Fort Grant, the base for operations for that District Judge seat, is also a mirror of the factual Fort Smith, Arkansas, where Judge Parker's court was located.
