Clint and Ron Howard remember when they were just "the boys"

RON Yes, I felt that. When we found out that Clint was smoking weed, I said, look, that’s not the horrible demon curse you’re afraid it will be. But as Clint started to take things further, I was then married and started having children. I was worried and tried to offer my support and go to meetings. I continued to work with Clint and chose him when it made sense. I remember telling him pretty late in his time of abuse – we used a lot of baseball terminology – I said, you’re a real .300 hitter hitting around .217.

CLINT I have this letter. You wrote it on notepaper in a hotel room in New York.

RON I was thinking of you while I was on the road. But I was very proud of Clint for sailing it. This achievement meant so much to mom and dad, probably more than anything we had ever achieved.

CLINT My recovery was not easy, easy, clean and elegant. Ron had a lot to do with it, and dad too. I struggled with mum’s passing, but I was very proud of the moment I was able to drop my nine year old chip into her coffin. I only wish it was a 10 year old chip.

What is your favorite performance that your brother has given?

RON Clint was great in “The Red Pony”. But while I was researching for this, I forgot that we had both been on “The Danny Kaye Show”, and there was this sketch where I was supposed to be this young James Bond character and Clint was my boss. He nailed down this scene. When I looked at him I said, my God, look like he is present. He really plays a 50 year old, hardened guy, and I buy him.

CLINT He talks about me in “The Red Pony”, but I never had the chance to do what he did in “Eddie’s Father’s Courtship”. There’s a scene in that movie where he has this panic attack that turns into a tantrum, and he was so believable. I’m going, the guy has chops. Also, as a young man, he made a movie, “Act of Love”. It was heavy material and he nailed it.

RON It was a story of euthanasia, based on a real event, where one younger brother was begged by the other to end it after a horrific accident. There is a scene in a courtroom where he talks about how much he loves his brother and Clint was going through a rough time during this time. It was one of the most personal moments I ever made onscreen, because I was channeling my own sense of love and desperation for what Clint was going through. The tears and the emotions were real – they came from my own guts.
