Obviously, Eastwood is the studio's king in the last 40 years of its existence, through several administrations. While bosses have come and gone, Eastwood has remained tall in the saddle. Many years after Bette Davis, James Cagney, Joan Crawford and Humphrey Bogart have passed into the star-dusty mists of history, Eastwood is worthy of having his name on the studio water tower — and he says so, laughingly, in the “Tales” documentary.

As far as recent history goes, I can't help but agree. But from the late '30s to the early '60s, Warner Bros. also made the best cartoons of any studio. Maybe Bugs Bunny's name should be up there, too.
