Happy Birthday Clint Eastwood: Our Favorite Fight Scenes

It's no wonder Marty McFly chose "Clint Eastwood" as his moniker when he went back to the old west in the horrendous third installment of the Back to the Future movies: the gaunt, leathery, steely-eyed Man With No Name became the blueprint for our modern imaginings of wild west outlaws, the flawed heroes of our American epic tales.

Steely gaze remains, but over the years Eastwood has established himself as a talented and award-winning director with a broad opus that includes Unforgiven, Letters from Iwo Jima, Gran Torino and Invictus

Eastwood turns 81 today, and for all the arty, heartfelt stuff he's done, all we really want to do is watch video of him kicking ass. So. Here are some of our favorite fight scenes
