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

 Grin Grin Grin
This is really funny; I've just found the title song from it (the Lee Martvin one) on my favourite Polish western site and discussed it a bit with my father (nobody of us has seen the film.) And now I read this. Cheesy

PAINT YOUR WAGON is the only Clint-film I can't watch. It is sooo bad, hard to top.
I did fell asleep in theatre in 1979, fought through a video-screening inthe 1980's and switch off the DVD last year.

hoho..

THe best about is the AFI Lifetime Achievement Award to Clint. I dunno who's on the stage, Sutherland
or Don Rickles or so, but he confronts the audience with Eastwood's singing virtues and plays the clip. It is obvious from the reaction of the spectators, that 99% never saw PAINT YOUR WAGON. And Clint's face goes red, DEEP red and he let's his head fall on the table... So funny.

I would like to see that. Cheesy

Once I was at a theatre play, comedy, when the audience managed to totally ruin the play with wild laugh; and one of the actors was the only person I ever saw go deep red, from laugh... Was it also Clint's case?

Paint Your Wagon actually had a magnificent "No Name City" set built for the production in Oregon if I remember right, its a good story and could be re-made, but not as a musical.  Grin

No, his face went red because he was so ashamed of his performance, in a very charming way.
Almost as charming as DAVE JENKINS.

I don't get it... what do you mean 'is saying a lot'?

I don't bitch, it's his right not to like me. One can't stand anybody - would be a boring world (or a paradise).

And of course it's always important at what time in your life you see a film. If I'd seen PAINT in my early childhood combined with a nice cinema experience, I might have liked it. But to me it ended up like Eastwood's THE CONQUEROR or BARBARIAN & THE GEISHA. I'm a fan of New Hollywood so that film represented to me also how you waste $ 23 milions and almost ruin a studio as they all did in the late 60's. Nice set, sure. But I don't see movies because of the sets. Leone shot OUATITW for $5,2 milion (I guess?).

I love WANDRIN'STAR which was played on the air in Germany even in the 80's.
(but I TALK TO THE TREES... come on!


I also like the fact that Marvin canceled THE WILD BUNCH because of his fee for PAINT. 'adore Marvin, but without Holden THE WILD BUNCH would not have become what it is. Marvin and Peckinpah were buddies (US Marines) and not that many people know or saw the two films they actually made together: ROUTE 66 (Peckinpah's first 'non-western') and THE LOSERS. Although I heard that THE LOSERS had some re-runs on US TV..

It means that Dave Jenkins is so charming that it's difficult for anything to be more charming than him (a hint of sarcasm).
