“Paint Your Wagon” (1969) on TCM Tonight (Aug 30)

Some time ago, waxing a bit rhapsodic about Clint Eastwood, I mentioned the weirdness that is Paint Your Wagon (1969) – a musical Western starring Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin as two California miners who share a gold claim and a wife.  Let me lay that on you again: A musical Western starring Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin. It really does take a while to sink in, doesn’t it?  Anyway, it is showing tonight/tomorrow morning on the TCM cable channel at 4:45am Pacific Time.

When it’s finished, you can catch a quick nap while Hang ‘Em High plays and then watch four of the best Eastwood westerns, including all three of the “Man with No Names” / Spaghetti Western pictures – oddly, not in order – over the course of Tuesday: For a Few Dollars More (1965) at 9:30am; The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly (1966) at 11:45am; The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976) at 2:45pm; and A Fistful Of Dollars (1964) at 5pm…  Or I suppose you could record them.

And looking for some of the music from Paint Your Wagon, I ran across a fun blog devoted to Clint Eastwood with a post on a whole bunch of records involving Eastwood: The Clint Eastwood Archive: Clint Eastwood related Vinyl Records from around the world.

Oh - and hello to Jason Isaacs.

The 400 Blows


is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.


What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
