SPACE COWBOYS

CLINT EASTWOOD is the producer and director of "Space Cowboys," which is his 22nd film as a director and his 15th as a producer.

Eastwood formed his Malpaso Productions company in 1971, at which time he directed his first film "Play Misty For Me." Since that time he has also directed "High Plains Drifter" (1972). "Breezy" (1973), "The Eiger Sanction" (1975). "The Outlaw Josey Wales" (1976). "The Gauntlet" (1977). "Bronco Billy" (1979). "Firefox" (1982), "Honkytonk Man" (1982), "Sudden impact" (1983), "Pale Rider" (1985), "Heartbreak Ridge" (1987), "Bird" (1988), "White Hunter, Black Heart" (1989), "The Rookie" (1990), "Unforgiven" (1992), "A Perfect World" (1994), "The Bridges of Madison County" (1995), "Absolute Power" (1996), "Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil" (1997), and "True Crime" (1998).

"Space Cowboys" is also the fifteenth film which Eastwood has produced ("Firefox," "Honkytonk Man," "Sudden Impact," "Pale Rider," "Heartbreak Ridge," "Bird," "White Hunter, Black Heart," "The Rookie," "Unforgiven," "A Perfect World," "The Bridges of Madison County," "Absolute Power," "Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil," and "True Crime").

Eastwood is unique in the film industry for the ability to often take on the responsibilities of starring in a film while simultaneously directing and producing. At no time was this situation more in evidence and more acknowledged than with "Unforgiven" in 1992.

Eastwood's revisionist Western opened to critical acclaim and huge box office grosses, culminating in nine Academy Award nominations: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, and Best Editing; and four Oscars: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor (Gene Hackman) and Best Editor (Joel Cox).

Academy recognition also came for Eastwood's "Bird," which won a best sound Oscar (and a Best Director Golden Globe) in 1989, while his adaptation of "The Bridges of Madison County" helped earn Meryl Streep a Best Actress nomination.

Equally imposing are the filmmaking accolades that Eastwood has accumulated over the years, having most recently been given a Lifetime Achievement Award from New York's National Board of Review in January, 2000. Likewise, he received a Cesar Honorary Award from the French Film Society for Career Achievement in 1998 and a Golden Laurel Lifetime Achievement Award from the Producer's Guild of America that same year.

In 1996, Eastwood received the Life Achievement Awards from the American Film Institute and the Film Society at Lincoln Center and in 1995 he was given the prestigious Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
