‘We’ve Lost Our Sense of Humor’ – Clint Eastwood Shoots Down Political Correctness

Legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood is criticizing political correctness, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Eastwood’s comments came during a discussion with Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan. 1971’s “Dirty Harry” features a cop named Harry Callahan (Eastwood) who breaks the rules to capture and kill a psychotic killer who is terrorizing San Francisco. Callahan often conflicts with liberals, and the villain resembles the long-haired hippies of the era.

“It was far-out at that time, so I brought it to [director] Don [Siegel], and he liked it,” Eastwood recalled. “A lot of people thought it was politically incorrect. That was at the beginning of the era that we’re in now with political correctness. We are killing ourselves, we’ve lost our sense of humor. But I thought it was interesting and it was daring.”

Eastwood came to Cannes to introduce a screening of a restored version of his 1992 Oscar-winner “Unforgiven”, which was shown as part of the Cannes Classics sidebar to mark the film’s 25th anniversary.
