Eastwood / Siegel Season

Eastwood / Siegel Season

Triskel Arts Centre is proud to present this special season dedicated to the films made by director Don Siegel and actor Clint Eastwood. When they first met, Siegel was known for his unpretentious yet taut and punchy style, illustrated in nifty B-movies such as RIOT IN CELL BLACK 11 (1954), INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (1956) and BABY FACE NELSON (1957).

Eastwood was just coming off the success of the Segio Leone ‘spaghetti westerns’ A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS (1964), FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE (1965) and THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY (1966). Beginning with COOGAN’S BLUFF in 1968 and ending with ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ in 1979, they collaborated on five pictures in total, ranging from urban crime thrillers, westerns, prison dramas and gothic horror. All of these films will be screened as part of this season, screening every Thursday during the month of February.
