CLINT EASTWOOD RECEIVES GOVERNOR'S AWARD FOR LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT IN THE ARTS; WARNER BROS. ANNOUNCES CREATION OF EASTWOOD SCHOLARSHIP

 BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Filmmaker and actor Clint Eastwood was honored tonight by California Gov. Pete Wilson in a presentation of the Governor's Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts, made during a dinner at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The presentation was made to Eastwood by Robert A. Daly, chairman and chief executive officer of Warner Bros.
 During Daly's remarks at the dinner, he made a surprise announcement of a $50,000 Clint Eastwood Scholarship Award created by Warner Bros. to encourage talented young filmmakers.
 Daly acknowledged that despite Eastwood's "enormous accomplishments as an actor, his extraordinary talent and sensitivity as a director, his remarkable skill and vision as a producer, and his enormous generosity and consideration to all of the members that make up his production family ... I believe he's too young to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award.'" Daly added that he was hopeful that the scholarship award would encourage young filmmakers to reach their creative goals.
 Guests being honored by the governor at the award dinner included author Ray Bradbury, jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, composer Gordon Getty, Daniel De Cordoba, sculptor Robert Graham and the late children's author Theodor S. Geisel (known as Dr. Seuss).
