Clint Eastwood and Quentin Tarantino have shared screen time to pay tribute to Budd Boetticher in a new documentary about the 1950s B-movie western director. The two discovered a joint interest in the icon and were happy to come together for the upcoming special “Budd Boetticher: A Man Can DO That”.

But Eastwood admits that it was tough talking with Tarantino. He says: “The producers had me there to get Quentin started, and believe me, it doesn’t take much. Quentin’s interesting - he’s followed lots of directors he never knew.” In the documentary Tarantino admits that that Michael Madsen’s character Bud in “Kill Bill” was a homage to Boetticher.
