A Short Biography of Cinematic Legend Clint EastwoodWorld famous actor and director Clint Eastwood was born on May 31, 1930 in San Francisco, California. Acting in and directing feature films for over five decades, Eastwood is still working in the industry today. He is considered to be one of the greatest American actors ever and certainly one of the biggest stars in the Western genre.

Eastwood’s family was hit hard by the Great Depression. With an older sibling, his sister Jean, Clint had a relatively small family, and this worked in the family’s favor as they moved from San Fran to Oakland, California in the late 1930s. Clint attended and graduated from Oakland Technical High School in 1948.
