Jersey Boys isn't Clint Eastwood's first film about professional singers. . .

Dirty Harry vs. Clint Eastwood

There are, you could argue, two Clint Eastwoods. One is the strong, near-silent type, the man with no name but a pair of Colt revolvers or a .44 Magnum, the lean avenging angel who asks if you feel lucky, punk, and would care to make his day.
