For the morbidly curious, TCM is having this on tomorrow at noon. I may just have to watch. Undecided

I have it on DVD, so no need for me to wait for TCM to air it.  Wink

I would recommend that you spring chickens who were not around when the movie was made should take the time to watch it. Most of you will (should) be pleasantly surprised.

I always though it would have worked as a straight Western had a great premise.

Not sure what you mean, given that the movie was trashed when first released.

Yeah, Lee Marvin singing has nothing to do with it. Cheesy

The location set looked good though that you have to admit, a serious remake without signing in the Spaghetti Western mode might work or could be interesting.

Maybe, but then it wouldn't be Paint Your Wagon.

The music is essential. But I like the plot--a woman with two husbands, and the complications that ensue. You don't get to see that kind of thing too often. And this has got to be the only Western Jean Seberg was ever in, what?

But unfortunately Seberg wasn't good in this one, nor was Eastwood.
Apart from Marvin roaring Wandering Star I remember nothing which was good in this lousy film.

But it seems it was quite successful. According to the Variety list in Phil Hardy's Western book PYW made as much money in the USA as all 3 Dollar films together. It's a strange world.

Seberg did plenty of GOOD films that weren't Westerns, so why should I care that one of her bad ones is?
