THE JOURNALIST Francisco Reyero has presented a lecture in Fuengirola’s House of Culture, entitled, Eastwood: My name defends me.

In his talk, the well-known journalist explored the American actor’s cinematic beginnings, touching on the work he shot in Spain.

Eastwood set out in 1964, an unknown actor from California, who accepted the proposal of Sergio Leone to shoot A Fistful of Dollars. At the close of the trilogy, his fate had changed.  He explained, “after the westerns I made in Spain I suddenly became Clint Eastwood.”

Without a doubt, Clint Eastwood is one of the most famous directors and actors in the world. With a wide cinematographic reach, he has become a legendary actor. The thespian’s career and origins are closely linked to Spain, something that journalist Francisco Reyero reveals in his book Eastwood: my name defends me.

In addition to Reyero, who spoke about the actor’s work, as well as various anecdotes thus far unknown by the general public, the event was attended by the journalist Onda Cero Jose Luis Salas.
