The final film in the classic 'Dirty Harry' franchise contained 3 stars who were not so well known back then but went to become one of Hollywood's most leading stars. They were:

Liam Neeson
Patricia Clarkson
Jim Carrey (Credited as James Carrey)

Liam Neeson went to play in notable roles like Schindler's List, Darkman, Love Actually & Chronicles Of Narnia!

Patricia Clarkson went on to star in Green Mile, Pieces Of April, Far From Heaven & Good Night And Good Luck!

Jim Carrey had a more successful career with such films like Ace Ventura, The Mask, Dumb & Dumber, Bruce Almighty & The Truman Show!

The former 2 were nominated for an Academy Award!

Thank you Clint Eastwood, for bringing us great stars!!
Happy Vader's rating:
One of the greatest high school movies ever made which included some of the greatest actors of all time, yet they were as unknown as that rock lying in the Gobi Desert. Here is the list:

Sean Penn
Nicolas Cage
Forest Whitaker
Eric Stoltz

Sean Penn went on to win the Best Actor Award twice for Mystic River & Milk!

Nicolas Cage also won the Best Actor Award for his 1995 film Leaving Las Vegas!

Forest Whitaker also won the Best Actor Award for his performance as Idi Amin in The Last King Of Scotland!

Eric Stoltz went on to star in The Mask, Fly II & Pulp Fiction!

All About Eve (1950)
A truly brilliant & highly recommended film which also had (then) future sex symbol & icon, Marilyn Monroe! Oh yes, this was kinda supposed to be her jump-start vehicle & her very brief appearance garnered public attention and well... you know the rest!
Next Genertation is probably the worst out of the franchise but it had 2 stars who would later become superstars: Matthew McCanaughey & Renee Zellwegger! Well, Renee was sort of a somebody before she came in this flick but Matthew was seriously new!

Now, after being nobody's in this god-awful film, both became superstars with Renee landing spots in Nurse Betty, Chicago, Jerry Maguire, Bridget Jones's Diary & Cold Mountain for which she won the award for Best Supporting Actress!

Matthew, however, went to star in Reign On Fire, How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, Paparazzi, Fool's Gold & Sahara!

Ironically, both of them also appeared in Dazed & Confused and My Boyfriend's Back before Next Generation

Yardbirds (1992)
This legendary 60's band is well known for producing 3 of the greatest guitarists in the history of music!

Jimmy Page - He later quit & formed himself a band which would later become Led Zeppelin, which would go on to become 'The Biggest Band In The World' (a title shared by Rolling Stones & The Who). They also produced such hits like 'Whole Lotta Love', 'The Ocean', 'Kashmir', 'Black Dog', 'Rock & Roll' & 'Stairway To Heaven', which is easily one of the most recognizable song in music history!

Eric Clapton - The only musician to be inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 3 times. After Yardbirds' he joined Cream, which is considered one of the most classic supergroup of all time & produced such hits like 'Crossroads', 'White Room' & 'Sunshine Of Your Love'. He later joined Derek & The Dominos & produced the immortal love song 'Layla' & after that he went solo, with such hits like 'My Fathers Eyes' & 'Tears In Heaven'

Jeff Beck - One of the defining English guitar players & one of the key 60's guitarists to change the way of playing guitar forever! After quitting Yardbirds', he formed Jeff Beck's Group which was equally successful!

All 3 guitarists have been inducted more than once, which Eric Clapton three times & Page and Beck twice!

All 3 were ranked in the top 20 in the 100 Greatest Guitarists List by Rolling Stones Magazine with Eric Clapton at No. 4, Jimmy Page at No. 9 & Jeff Beck at No. 14!

Metallica! Every kids dream! While Metallica were producing video-less songs, Dave Mustaine was writing songs which would later define Heavy Metal! Why Dave Mustaine?

Well, Dave was Metallica's very first guitarist before Kirk Hammett stepped in! Dave Mustaine, after getting kicked out, formed Megadeth 'in anger'!

Megadeth went on to become of the key bands (Alongside Slayer, Anthrax & Metallica) to create & popularize the Thrash Metal genre! Despite being second only to Metallica, Megadeth has enjoyed high impact sales due to strong following!

Dave Musaine (And Megadeth As Whole) penned arugably some of the most well known metal songs like 'Holy Wars', 'Tornado Of Souls', 'Hanger 18', 'Trust', In My Darkest Hour' & my personal favourite, '99 Ways To Die'

Joel McIver ranked Mustaine No. 1 In His 2009 Book, 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists Of All Time!

Can't say much in this as i've never much of a Exodus fan but this was Kirk Hammett's first band before joining Metallica the very same evening Dave Mustaine was kicked out!

Kirk Hammett went on to become one of the most greatest guitarists & was even ranked No. 11 in Rolling Stones's 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time!
