Synopsis


Paint Your Wagon
After a debut on Broadway in 1951, Paramount spent an estimated 17 to 20 million dollars in production costs for this Lerner and Loewe musical. With Loewe's permission, Lerner wrote five additional tunes for the film with Andre Previn. Ben Rumson (Lee Marvin) is the grizzled prospector trying his luck panning for gold in California. Pardner (Clint Eastwood) is his companion. When Ben buys a woman from a Mormon, Elizabeth (Jean Seberg) expects equal rights for her gender and chooses to live with both men. Ben and Pardner tunnel under the boomtown to gather the fallen gold dust that has filtered through the cracks of the saloon and other places. The musical comedy features 13 songs, the most recognizable being "They Call The Wind Maria". The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band helps out on the song "Hand Me Down That Can O' Beans". Both Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin are given a chance to show their vocal ability (or lack of it) in several songs. The initial release fell far short of regaining the millions put into the production, and most critics dipped their pens in poison to pan the picture -- though the film plays better than the critics would lead anyone to believe. Many jumped on the Paint Your Wagon smear campaign after the film proved to be not nearly as successful as other musicals. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

    We sang one of the songs in my choir but I didn't watch the musical until a few years after that. It was on tv and I watched it with my dad. It has a lot of humor and I love all of the songs. It might be a little suggestive for some people who are really conservative, but I would watch it with the whole family. Also, young Clint Eastwood singing.

    I'll admit, as a big Clint Eastwood fan, it was strange to see him singing in a musical at first, but he's actually a decent singer, and I really did enjoy the movie! "Here! it is!, I mean, Here IT is!" it was definately a memorable movie!.

    Great older movie. Very funny, some what of a musical...but not to much. A must see. Has one strange factor, half way through the movie it has a built in intermission.....but you can fast forward through it, kind of weird for a DVD.
