So after your last Dirty Harry movie marathon, did you sit back for a moment and wonder what are the best Clint Eastwood characters of all time? Before you say Harry Callahan, consider your answer. He’s had so many different roles and characters over the years. Also, just because he played Dirty Harry multiple times, doesn’t necessarily mean that’s his best character.

Aside from “Dirty” Harry Callahan, Eastwood also famously played the Man with No Name in Segio Leone’s iconic spaghetti westerns A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. A Fistful of Dollars was responsible for launching a whole genre and Eastwood’s iconic character is who fans think of when they think of westerns.
