Movie star Clint Eastwood ruined the career of his former girlfriend, actress Sondra Locke, by getting her a movie development deal in return for calling off a palimony suit, and then using his influence to block her from actually making any films, Locke's attorney contended Wednesday. "This deal with Warner Bros. was a sham.

LAS VEGAS -- By Thursday afternoon, exhibitors' eyes were beginning to glaze over after days of watching movie clips. But Warner Bros., the last studio to put on a presentation for movie theater owners at the annual conference, came prepared to wake them up. The studio flew more in more stars than any of its rivals, bringing big guns like Clint Eastwood and Channing Tatum onto the Colosseum stage. Some handled it better than others. Adam Sandler, no stranger to performing in front of a live audience, made jokes at the expense of his pregnant “Blended” co-star Drew Barrymore, pointing at her baby bump and asking “who did this” to the actress.

Clint Eastwood came to the rescue on the eve of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, performing the Heimlich maneuver on the event's chief executive at a dinner to honor volunteers. “I saw that look in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes,” Eastwood told the Carmel Pine Cone , the local newspaper. The event's director, Steve John, was snacking on hors d'oeuvres Wednesday night when a piece of cheese got stuck in his throat, setting the stage for Eastwood's rescue.

When promoting a big-budget summer film, there are plenty of stops at which movie stars are expected to shill their product. Actors hole up in fancy hotels for press junkets, trade banter with David Letterman and fly overseas to walk red carpets. But many also appear at a less talked-about event: CinemaCon, a Las Vegas conference attended by about 3,000 movie theater owners, studio executives and concession distributors. This week, some of Hollywood's biggest names - Clint Eastwood, Johnny Depp, Cameron Diaz, Dwayne Johnson, Adam Sandler - will head to Caesars Palace to show off footage from their coming movies and mingle with exhibitors.

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. As a director, Eastwood hasn't been galvanizing us for a while. “Invictus,” “Hereafter,” “J. Edgar” - these are movies that haven't exactly had many of us running to theaters. But we've still wanted to watch him. Coming into this weekend, Eastwood had starred in two movies ("Million Dollar Baby" and "Gran Torino")

At 83 years old, Clint Eastwood is still playing the hero, even when he's not on in front of the camera. At a volunteer party Wednesday at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Eastwood, who has played in the event and now serves as the chairman of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, saved the life of tournament director Steve John by performing the Heimlich manuever. "I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn't work," John said, according to the Associated Press.

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. After the actor's likeness was destroyed three times, the artist behind the figure that has sparked interest among hikers in the hills and commuters along the Glendale Freeway decided it might be best if he find a new home for the cutout. 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.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Clint Eastwood confirmed in an interview with his hometown newspaper that he was winging it last week when - unscripted and unvetted - he addressed the Republican National Convention. The resulting loss for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney didn't stem from what Eastwood said (an American movie icon chatting with an empty chair worked for some people), but from what the Republican presidential hopeful gave up. Those 12 minutes of prime-time television, with an audience of 30 million people, will not be coming back, at least not too many times.

Clint Eastwood had a "make my day" attitude about Hollywood agents, including his own representative, Leonard Hirshan. "If he didn't return a call, he would have been history!" the screen tough guy said this week. But then Eastwood laughed and said, sadly, "I'm just joking. Lenny always returned a call. " Hirshan was Eastwood's agent for more than 50 years, perhaps a record in Hollywood for a major star. It started when Hirshan was already an established agent with the all-powerful William Morris Agency, where over the years he represented stars such as Jack Lemmon, Angela Lansbury, Walter Matthau and Sophia Loren, and also negotiated film deals for the likes of Elvis Presley.

A life-size cutout of Clint Eastwood in cowboy garb won't be the only likeness of a western star to become Glendale city property. In a unanimous vote Tuesday, the City Council approved accepting the donation of five western-inspired art pieces, including the one of Eastwood, from a Los Angeles artist who had originally secretly placed some of the cutouts in the hills above Glendale. "This is the kind of organic art that I really respond to," said Councilwoman Laura Friedman.

TAMPA, Fla. - Appearing on a couple of morning network television shows Friday, potential First Lady Ann Romney sounded like she wanted her 12 minutes back. That would be the 12 minutes of prime television time the night before that her husband's handlers handed to movie icon Clint Eastwood just before the climax of the Republican National Convention. Eastwood, 82, turned the 720 precious seconds into a meandering walkabout through his (not entirely cogent) political beliefs. And Romney, in return, damned him with faint praise.

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.

Ted Post, a veteran television and film director who directed a young Clint Eastwood on TV's "Rawhide" and later directed the film legend in the hit movies "Hang 'em High" and "Magnum Force," has died.
