The marathon is set to begin at 6 a.m. with Eastwood playing Carol Channing’s love interest in 1956’s “The First Traveling Saleslady.” Other titles slated for the day include Eastwood’s iconic Sergio Leone pics “A Fistful of Dollars,” “For a Few Dollars More” and “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” as well as “Dirty Harry.” and “Magnum Force.”
