Varese Sarabande: Clint Eastwood Collection for January 2014!

Honkytonk Man [1982-2014]

Western singer Red Stovall (Clint Eastwood), suffers from tuberculosis but has been given an opportunity to make it big at the Grand Ole Opry. He is accompanied by his young nephew Whit (Kyle Eastwood), to Nashville, Tennessee.

After a series of adventures which include the nephew's "coming of age" in a house of ill repute, he and uncle Red finally arrive at Nashville. A fit of coughing in the middle of his audition at the Grand Ole Opry ruins his chance and his dream. But talent scouts for a record company are impressed enough to arrange a recording session, realizing that he has only days to live. The tuberculosis reaches a critical stage in the middle of this session, where Red's lines are filled in by a side guitarist. Red finally succumbs while Whit vows to tell the story of his uncle. Red's vintage Lincoln Model K touring car, prevalent throughout the movie, finally 'dies' at the cemetery where Red is laid to rest.

Any Which Way You Can [1980-2014]

Two years after throwing his fight with Tank Murdock at the end of Every Which Way but Loose, Philo Beddoe (Clint Eastwood) keeps fighting in underground bareknuckle boxing matches to make money on the side. Philo decides to retire when he realizes that he has started to enjoy the pain. Philo and his manager Orville (Geoffrey Lewis) decide to end his career. The problem is Jack Wilson (William Smith), a new breed of East Coast brawler who mixes martial arts with boxing. He is so effective at maiming his opponents that his handlers cannot book fights for him.



You don't have to ask me twice on these, once you hear the samples you will want to have them both. They are both on digital and will be released this month on Cd format, either way you come out being the winner. I am hoping this will be a cool trend from Varese Sarabande as to get some of the others Eastwood films.... we will see!
