Bloody Mama (1970) – One of the highest profile movies of Clint’s career. A low Joe Bob Briggs Breast Count – one scene – however, liberal use of fake blood, explicit language (no F bombs), guns, violence, drugs and sexual innuendo. Fantastic low-budget movie with a big name cast including Shelley Winters, Robert De Niro, Bruce Dern, Don Stroud, Robert Walden and Diane Varsi. As Arthur Barker, the least psychotic of the Barker boys, he has many memorable scenes. Worth seeing just for a very young Robert De Niro. Directed by Roger Corman.

More DetailsHide DetailsHe subsequently enrolled in the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York and shortly thereafter, with the help of fellow Oklahoman Lonny Chapman, secured a spot in Lee Strasberg’s Actor’s Studio, an incubator for many of the most promising talents of the era. Clint quickly gained a reputation for his ability to understand the character he was asked to play. The Actor’s Studio work resulted in his first film work in “The Strange One” which used completely a cast and crew of Actor’s Studio personnel. An appearance in “A Face in the Crowd” followed and produced a working relationship with director Elia Kazan that would span 10 years.

Literally millions of viewers tuned into weekly shows such as “Westinghouse Studio One”, “G.E. Theater” and “U.S. Steel Hour”. A feature role in Hal B. Wallis’ 1958 “Hot Spell” preceded performances in a highly acclaimed 11-month run on Broadway of Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” as well as an NBC TV production of the same, both directed by Jose Quintero.
