Visiting a retired Frank Capra at his Sierra Nevada hideaway, Clint Eastwood was baffled.The famed Capra died in 1991 at 94, three decades after his last film.Eastwood, who at 84 just released the musical "Jersey Boys" and wrapped shooting on the Navy SEAL drama "American Sniper," isn't the only filmmaker blowing past conventional retirement age. This Friday, Woody Allen, 78, will, like clockwork, release his latest, the French Riviera romantic comedy "Magic in the Moonlight". Polanski's film is a gloriously comic, self-referential gender play. Godard's film – in which his dog played a starring role – was more experimental than most 25-year-olds would dare. Certainly, film history is littered with directors who worked well past retirement age.Martin Scorsese, 71, sounded slightly dejected by this part of contemporary moviemaking when releasing "The Wolf of Wall Street," an explicit romp of a movie few would associate with a director in his 70s.Between the two of them, Eastwood and Allen have combined to make a staggering 20 films since turning 70 .One striking commonality between the likes of Allen, Eastwood and even Godard is that none are abundantly precious about their films.
