Why Clint Eastwood is my hero.

Clint Eastwood is a name everyone who love movies would know. He's famous for his act as a tough and rough character in the movie Dirty Harry series and classic western epic (The Good, The Bad, The Ugly).

The first movie I remember watching that involves him is "Mystic River" (Sean Penn, Tim Robins, Laurence Fishbourne, Kevin Bacon) which make Sean Penn won his first Oscar for best actor and Tim Robbins for best supporting actor.

Then I've watch his other movies (dun remeember what). But what makes him a hero to me is the movie The Unforgiven 1992 (Clint Eastwood, Samuel L. Jackson, Gene Hackman) which he directed earning Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor (Gene Hackman).

What I love the most about this movie (The Unforgiven) is the sound track "Claudia's Theme" which he composed himself. He also composed many other sound track for his movie such as form the movie "Mystic River" and "Gran Torino".

He own his production company Malpaso Production form his movies and his own recording company Malpaso Records to record sound tracks of the movie, which he'd compose most of it himself.
Another cool fact about him is that he's once involved in politics that he became the mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
All in all I love Clint Eastwood because he can be a director, screenwriter, actor, composer and even a mayor (ling-app students, analyze this sentence). He's won lots of awards including Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Picture (The Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby), Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, Golden Globe Awards for Cecil B. DeMille Award, Best Director (Bird, The Unforgiven,Million Dollar Baby, etc. In terms of success, he's my idol.
"I've always felt that every actor should direct a film at some point in their life, and every director should act" -Clint Eastwood

to analyze the sentence as a ling app student i would say the writer has done a good job in rhyming all the words and it creates a foregrounding effect as they are all parallel.
