The Man With No Name (1977) is an excellent documentary on Clint Eastwood, with presenter, the writer and broadcaster Iain Johnstone getting great value from directors Sergio Leone and Don Siegel, actor Richard Burton and the critics Dilys Powell and Pauline Kael.

“Just keep grinding, until the talent, the hard work, the effort to learn, and the good luck all come together at one time. And when they do, well, then you’re alright.” —Clint Eastwood

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.”

“Munny struggles with his soul throughout the film, but Unforgiven otherwise concerns itself with earthly justice, and its seeming impossibility. Eastwood held onto Peoples’ script (which was owned for a while by Francis Ford Coppola) until he was old enough to play the part of Munny. He dedicated the film to mentors Sergio Leone and Don Siegel, and talked of it at the time as the last Western he’d ever make, a farewell to the genre that had made him a star. More than 20 years later, Eastwood hasn’t backed away from that promise. Yet Unforgiven doesn’t really play like the work of a man trying to have the last word on the Western. Set in 1880 and 1881, it isn’t about the end of the West, though Beauchamp is a herald of the way history was already starting to pass into legend. It doesn’t even, until its final scenes, feel like the last word on the drifting men-with-no-name antiheroes that Eastwood popularized in his films with Leone. Munny has a name and a past, even if he’s trying to put it behind him. He’s far more man than archetype, though he’s a man who’s unwittingly walked into a debate about right and wrong in an unsettled land—an ongoing argument that tends to erupt into violence. It is, in other words, a quintessentially American story. When Eastwood poses himself in front of an American flag, in the wake of bringing that argument to its bloody conclusion, the image has chilling implications.”
