Can anyone recall in which western film Clint Eastwood actually sings (and not too badly)?

If you are stumped, choose song No. 9 from the track list at the following link:

"Paint Your Wagon" he sings quite a bit.  I've never actually seen that movie, but I have heard much of the music, and he's actually not too bad.  Lee Marvin, on the other hand. . .  Shocked

Well...anyway Marvin had the hit song. Actually I don't remember whether  in the italian version of the movie (which I saw in July 1970, in what we call an arena: i.e. a large space adapted to open air theatre in a southern summer resort called Sperlonga) the song were dubbed too. Though the movie is aired once in a while on some channel never had the guts to watch it. I presume the italian renditions of the songs could only be an improvement though when I heard Marvin singin' the song on the radio and not knowing a word of english, his rumblings excerced a sure fascination on me (and, I'm sure, scores of other italian ignorants). The italian title of the movie was The Ballad of No Name Cty and I think it's a little better than the original, isn't it?

Dunno if I've mentioned this before, but according to my dad "Paint Your Wagon" was the movie playing in the hospital while my mom was delivering me. . . so I guess I've got to see it eventually!  Shocked

But the title is based on the name of the opening song. Is the song "Paint Your Wagon" also called "The Ballad of No Name City?"

Some people don't like the "bad" singing in this film, but I think that is part of its comic charm. By contrast, when the standard musical performance of "They Call the Wind Maria" goes off, it feels out of place. And it's the only boring part of the film.

What I mean is I would rather see a movie called "The Ballad of No Name City" than "Paint Your Wagon". Though, sure, it is not much of a choice.

one thing about Paint Your Wagon was that they really built a realistic Western mining camp set in I think it was Oregon that was pretty accurate, too bad the film was a musical, now if it had been a straight Western it may have been pretty good. Cool

I dont think a western called "Paint your wagon" would be any good regardless of it being played straight or not Roll Eyes

Did you ever see it? It will remind you of McCabe & Mrs. Miller in a way.

Cut out the song and dance #'s and its not bad, sort of a cool and devious plan, seriously, I'll have to check and see if its based on a novel or if its an original work.

The arrangement of the music in CA is quite good though and I think LVC's singing adds to an already very entertaining comedy.

No matter how bad you might think it is to watch Eastwood and Marvin sing, it's better than watching Clint scamper about in his BVDs in The Witches.
