10 Badass Quotes from Clint

May 15, 2017

Perhaps the most badass words to ever come out of cultural icon Clint Eastwood’s mouth are: “You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?” That’s from the hugely successful film Dirty Harry. It’s made several “Top Movie Quotes” lists, including AFI’s 100 Greatest Movie Quotes of All Time. But oddly enough, it consistently makes lists for being one of the most misquoted movies lines of all times (“Do you feel lucky, punk?”). Below are ten CORRECTLY cited quotes from Clint that we think are just as badass in celebration of his birthday and an HDNET MOVIES Eastwood Extravaganza. Enjoy four days of Clint Eastwood films on HDNET MOVIES, with an all-day marathon on Wednesday, May 31st when the legend turns 87.
