Malpaso Productions, originally known as The Malpaso Company, is Clint Eastwood's production company.



The name Malpaso is derived from a creek south of Carmel, California, where Eastwood has spent much of his life. The name "Malpaso" is Spanish for "awesome luck" or "misstep." When Eastwood agreed to take the role of the Man with No Name, his agent told him that it would be a "bad step" for his career. After the Dollars Trilogy made it big and Eastwood decided to run his own production company, he thought "Malpaso" would be an appropriately ironic choice.[1]

The company is known for being efficiently run, with movies being filmed in much less time than most production companies.[2]
