With Clint Eastwood's 'Trouble With the Curve' in theaters, we look at final flicks of some of the greats By Glenn Whipp Special to MSN MoviesSay what you will about Clint Eastwood's conversation with a chair last month at the Republican National Convention. It undeniably sparked renewed interest in the big-screen icon, who, it just happens, has a movie arriving in theaters this week. In "Trouble with the Curve," Eastwood plays a veteran baseball scout with failing eyesight. There's one last trip to be made, though, so Eastwood's gruff old-timer enlists his estranged daughter (Amy Adams) for help and, yes, a little healing. It's Eastwood's first acting role since 2008's "Gran Torino." And, at age 82 and with priorities behind the camera, it could well be his last. If so, it appears to have the makings of a mighty fine swan song. How have other movie icons fared in their film farewells? We look at the good, the bad and the ugly of screen legends' parting shots.
