The What We Covet Holiday Gift Guide, Part 2: The Moviegoer

As you know, I'm a big fan of movies, and one of the most fantastic contributors to film has been, consistently, Clint Eastwood. Now, 35 of his films have been anthologized in a single set from Warner Brothers, starting with Where Eagles Dare (1968) and ending with Invictus (2009).

The man is a true giant of cinema, and that's more than evident in this collection, which includes such stellar films as Unforgiven, Eastwood's 1992 Oscar-winning tour de force, and  2008's Gran Torino, which is close to my heart, as it is set in (and was filmed in) Michigan. And the fact that these films cover the second half of Eastwood's career stand as a testament to the fact that he's only gotten better with age. 

Any movie lover would be happy to have this set on the shelf, as it will provide entertainment for years to come. Consider it for the film fanatic in your family!
