Jeffrey Donovan (Changeling, “Crossing Jordan”) plays blacklisted spy Michael Westen, a free agent following his “burn notice” that effectively wiped out his existence: no work history, money or identity.

In the face of tragedy and addiction, William Banks will risk everything to be The Cleaner.

Clint Eastwood: The Man With No Name Trilogy (Blu-ray) $69.99 (Fox)

Sergio Leone’s trilogy of operatic spaghetti Westerns with Clint Eastwood made the former television star into an international sensation as the scraggly, silent Man with No Name, a wandering rogue with a scheming mind and a sense of humor drier than the dusty, wind-scoured desert. The first in the collection, A Fistful of Dollars, a unique take on Kurosawa’s cynical samurai hit Yojimbo, reveals the transformation of the Western hero into a crafty mercenary. The follow-up, For a Few Dollars More, teams Eastwood up in an uneasy alliance with Lee Van Cleef (High Noon) in a tale of revenge. But the masterpiece of the set is The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, an epic scramble for buried gold set against the violence of the Civil War. In this film good is a relative term as three criminals make a series of tenuous partnerships broken in double-crosses and betrayals in Leone’s epic vision of the American southwest as endless deserts and clapboard towns infested with gunmen.

The Eastwood Factor Extended Version. (2010)  (Warner).

Documentary, written and directed by critic and film historian Richard Schickel, presents the director-star in a way he’s rarely seen — visiting film locations or sites where his movies were created, and on the Warner lot visiting the costume department and Eastwood Scoring Stage, as well as his hometown of Carmel, Calif. Eastwood’s candid, intelligent and often humorous interviews about his body of work and the choices he made, along with Schickel’s selection of scenes from his movies, results in a rare view of one of our era’s great icons. Narrated by Morgan Freeman. This is an expanded version of the 22-minute documentary included in “Clint Eastwood: 35 Films, 35 Years at Warner Bros”; consumers who purchased that set can trade up to this new feature-length version at no cost by visiting www.wbshop.com/Eastwood. $14.97.
