Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970): Some great rare photos
Out of all of Clint’s movies from the 1970s, Two Mules For Sister Sara has been one film that has provided a great deal of behind-the-scenes or production shots. Just recently I have discovered a few new additions, and rather than just adding them to the dedicated “Two Mules for Sister Sara” page (where they may not be seen for a while unless the page is visited) I also decided to post them here as a temp new post. These great shots are rarely seen. —theclinteastwoodarchive
When Clint Eastwood decided to direct his first movie, Play Misty for Me, he asked veteran director Don Siegel (Dirty Harry) for some directing advice. Eastwood figured that Siegel would tell him about how to cover a scene with camera set ups or how to deal with actors. But all Siegel said was, “Get plenty of sleep.”

Spielberg presented Daniel Day-Lewis with the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in Film at the Brittania Awards in Beverly Hills on Wednesday evening, and the actor took the occasion to riff on Clint Eastwood’s famous empty chair routine.
The actor placed a vacant seat down on stage and proceeded to address it as “the recently re-relected President of this country.”
It’s a funny bit and Day-Lewis does make sure it’s clear that he’s not mocking Eastwood, but it must have been a little uneasy for Spielberg, who is friends with the veteran director.
