Flashback Clint Eastwood to Michael Moore: ‘If you ever show up at my front door with a camera – I’ll kill you’

Clint Eastwood with Michael Moore

Lefty filmmaker Michael Moore has gotten his name linked this week to a better moviemaker – and a better man – by criticizing Clint Eastwood’s box office smash “American Sniper,” but it’s far from the first time the two have publicly squared off.

In 2005, both men were being honored by the National Board of Review. Eastwood’s “Million Dollar Baby” had just won the “Best Picture” Oscar; Moore’s gun-grabbing propaganda piece “Bowling for Columbine” had just won “Best Documentary.”

Moore’s movie featured the porcine producer staging an infamous interview with a visibly frail Charlton Heston, the acting great who was then president of the National Rifle Association. Heston was so agitated by Moore’s ambush that he walked out, on camera.

Eastwood was not amused.

In his acceptance piece he had some pointed words for the lefty.

“Michael Moore and I actually have a lot in common – we both appreciate living in a country where there’s free expression,” Eastwood said, according to the Washington Examiner.

“But, Michael, if you ever show up at my front door with a camera – I’ll kill you.”

The comment drew laughter and Eastwood played it humorously, but he wasn’t finished.

“I mean it,” he said.

The Examiner reported that Moore laughed with everyone else.

But it’s a good bet he hasn’t shown up at Eastwood’s house with a camera since.
