Eastwood, Clint
Born 31 May 1930  (San Francisco, California, USA)
College dropout son of a steelworker who made it big in spaghetti westerns and has been playing hard men ever since. Starred in the film which gave the DDP its name, so it will be truly ironic if he turns out to be a points scorer.

Born 18 June 1942  (Urbana, Illinois, USA)
Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for the Chicago Sun Times. Also co-hosted a long-running TV show with fellow critic, the late Gene Siskel.
