Look at young, hipster Clint Eastwood. Not only is he on a skateboard, riding the streets of Rome, but he's doing so while wearing cool-ass Italian shoes. This all went down in 1965, just when Eastwood was rising to fame from his Spaghetti Western movies directed by Sergio Leone. He was photographed on Via Veneto, which is one of the most fancy streets of Rome. And he's on a skateboard; a good 16 years before the advent of Thrasher magazine. Holy spaghetti! After taking this photo, Clint headed to the skate park to practice some Ollies.
