Something has happened to Clint Eastwood. No, not the envisaging of furniture as possessing of human thought and feeling. Not just that, anyway. Something has happened to how we see him.

A cutout of Clint Eastwood dressed as a cowboy that began as a mysterious art piece looking out over Glendale's hillsides is one step closer to becoming official property of the city.

That's when City Hall came into the picture. City officials offered to give the cutout an official home after a Los Angeles Times columnist wrote about the multiple acts of vandalism it had sustained, and now the Arts & Culture Commission has recommended that the City Council approve making it a city art piece.

Clint Eastwood stands alone in Hollywood as a man about whom no negative word is spoken. Whether they agree or not with his politics, no matter how people feel about his films or the whole Dirty Harry thing, everyone loves Clint Eastwood. Actors love Clint, writers love Clint, other directors love Clint. In thousands of interviews across time and space he is held up as a model of what Hollywood can and should be - artistically ambitious, committed to craft, respectful of others, frank but polite, a man who hires good people and then gets out of their way. He is the last of what was always a very rare breed, a man of conviction with an unassailable reputation.
