South American Getaway is not a cappella, as it has a rhythm section plus a piano and a violin. It is rather a vocalized tune.

Like Bud Spencer in ALTRIMENTI CI ARRABIAMO. That was alla cappella. Penso.

Whatever you want to call it it was CRAP.

One of my favourite Bacharach's composition. Apparently you have no antennas for good music.

No, it works very well in the film.

As do the songs in Cable Hogue and the one in Roy Bean.

An Oscar winning song can't be wrong. And what a song. About the other, it rhymes with the light-comedy touch of the sequence. BTW, the bycicle business is one of the few elements of historical truth in the movie.

It is just a wonderful movie - if one shares the filmmaker's taste: Relying so heavily on music is always risky.  If you don't like Lai's music for A MAN AND A WOMAN or Legrand's for THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR, you'll never appreciate the films as much as others do who love the music.

musical interludes often screw up a movie. There are some exceptions. IMO, the musical piece in Rio Bravo was great. (The first song "My Rifle, My Pony, and Me." The second one, "Cindy," is awful. But the interlude fits - they are sitting around in the station, basically like prisoners themselves, it makes sense that they would have to pas the time, so they sit around singing. And it's a good song, too.

The Raindrops thing is awful. A 1960's music video stuck in middle of a movie. Awful.

Stanton is right in this thread. Mike has a point, also. Drink is as wrong as a Drink.

Some things I loved about filmmaking from the mid 60s to the mid 70s is stuff like the RAINDROPS sequence. It was very daring and fresh and new. 'hoping that some could relate to it and never mind the others Smiley. I always loved it anyway. To me it was true to life itself: I love women and I had situations like this here and there in my own life (both sides of the story): you going out for a walk with the girl, while the guy she slept with just hours ago is still asleep... It's just an unusual and different, cool and modern film. Love it. Almost every minute and every frame. ALTHOUGH at the very same time, in early / mid 68, two films were shot, that are my all-time number 1 + 2 (WILD BUNCH & EASY RIDER - also OUATITW of course!). BUTCH can never be in my Top 20 because it is not deep enough (which it doesn't want to be anyway), but it is a masterpiece, something that that hasn't been done before, with a great casting choice by Hill (McQueen & Newman - that would have been another - great -film). I love Redford. They did everything right. Great performance. His career was between old school BAREFOOT and "something coming", I think he made the picture.

Put that way I can agree, judge it with the other Music Video Westerns, they are as you say "not deep enough".

Cable Hogue is not deep enough? You are kidding ...

Same goes for Roy Bean.

All 3 are unusual and intelligent westerns with fine if not excellent directing. And compared with Leone's westerns, Leone does not always win ...
