AMC Wed. 8 p.m. "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" ›› Lucian leads the Lycans against "Gran Torino" (2008): Directing himself as an actor here, as he's done many times, Eastwood is superb as a crusty war veteran forced to confront his bigotry. "Million Dollar Baby" (2004): Everything Eastwood does on this Oscar-winning drama is so superb, it's easy to overlook that his performance as a boxing trainer is as sterling as his directing. "Mystic River" (2003): Eastwood directed Sean Penn and Tim Robbins to Academy Awards in this intense drama of grown friends from childhood. "The Bridges of Madison County" (1995): Eastwood shows wonderful tenderness – and stunning scene composition, as this story requires – as director and star (with Meryl Streep) of Robert James Waller's story of middle-aged romance. "In the Line of Fire" (1993): Playing a hero with flaws became Eastwood, seen as a veteran Secret Service man trying to prevent a JFK repeat. "Unforgiven" (1992): Eastwood redefined the screen Western in this grim Oscar darling. "The Outlaw Josey Wales" (1976): Among Eastwood's finest Westerns post- "Fistful," this drama (which he also directed) casts him as a farmer who targets his family's murderers. "Dirty Harry" (1971): No list of Eastwood's best is complete without his initial, Don Siegel-directed turn as the maverick San Francisco police detective tracking a serial killer his own way. "The Beguiled" (1971): Also working with Siegel here, in a melodrama regarded in Europe as a classic, Eastwood took a gamble as an injured Civil War soldier trapped in a girls school. "A Fistful of Dollars" (1964): An international superstar was born with Eastwood's original portrayal of the Man With No Name, which he did thinking it would just be fun to travel to Spain.
