Musical comedy western released in 1969. Directed by Joshua Logan and written by Paddy Chayefsky, it featured the melodious singing voices of Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin. Yes, I'm serious! Marvin played grizzled old prospector Ben Rumson, and Eastwood played the enigmatic Pardner. Also starred Jean Seberg as Elizabeth, a woman who Ben and Pardner buy and marry. Neither Marvin nor Eastwood are very good singers, but they do alright--and seriously, this movie is not as horrible as you may have been led to believe. The songs are pretty good, there's always some crazy scheme going on, and it's really pretty damn funny. No, it's not "High Noon" or "The Searchers", but you could do worse than renting this one.
