In the movies, Clint Eastwood’s cowboys, inspectors and emotionally wounded tough guys made him a cultural icon of American manhood. In real life, the Oscar winner will soon be honored for another role: bringing justice and tolerance to the big screen.
As “Dirty” Harry Callahan said, “Go ahead, make my day.”
On November 14, Eastwood will accept the Tolerance Award at the inaugural Museum of Tolerance International Film Festival (MOTIFF). Set to take place in Los Angeles from November 13-18, the festival will feature independent films from around the world that explore human rights issues. Eastwood will accept his award at the festival’s main gala.
