HELENA, MONTANA- Criminal charges were filed against a man accused of scamming investors to produce a cowboy documentary he said would be narrated by actor and director Clint Eastwood.

Prosecutors say Matthew McClintock got more than $24,000 and used nealy all the money for living expenses, to dine out and buy a $575 cowboy hat.  They say the film was bogus. Authorities say just $200 was in McClintock's bank accounts that they froze. He faces charges of theft, fraud, failure to register as a salesperson and failure to register a security.

A judge also banned McClintock from further fundraising.
