Eastwood Awarded with Order of the Rising Sun


Los Angeles-- How spiffy is this? Old Blondie (that's Mr. (氏) Blondie in Japan, mind you) has gotten the second highest award that Japan can offer for his work on the Iwo Jima films and bridging cultures. He was awarded the 3rd class of the Order of the Rising Sun, which is adorned with gold rays and a neck ribbon, on the 22nd of this month.
