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.
